Super Sized Cutting Table Kongsberg C66
Esko has launched the Kongsberg C66, a digital finishing table designed for short run production of corrugated applications. The Kongsberg C66 is the largest digital cutting table . Its combination of size, speed and precision on heavy-duty rigid materials such as corrugated cartons make it a flexible and effective alternative to conventional diecutting equipment for short run corrugated productions of packaging and POP displays.Unique in the marketplace, the Kongsberg C66 can run at 100 m/min.
It can handle either manual multi-zone production of large 2.2m x 3.2m (87in x 126in) sheets or single-zone production of large 2.5m x 4.8m (98in x 189in) corrugated sheets.Multi-zone production can also delivers up to 40% higher performance. The larger Kongsberg tables can be set up for MultiZone production. While one zone of the table is in action, an operator can set up the other zone by clearing the finished piece and loading a new sheet. While the operator works and prepares one zone, the machine works at the other zone, with automatic zone-change based on a simple operator handshake.
Driving functionalityThe i-cut Production Console (iPC) drives the table’s functionality, and includes capabilities such as camera control, machine set up, tool recognition, calibration and tool adjustments. Combined with Device Manager it offers the ability to follow production progress from a distance. The i-cut Production Console also allows estimation of cutting time based on job characteristics for more efficient scheduling. There is a wide variety of optional tool units available as well.
