Esko to show new Kongsbergs

Esko is set to unveil a new series of Kongsberg cutting tables during the SGIA Expo at the end of October. The new C-series has been completely re-engineered and redesigned and includes the C64, a 3.2-metre wide table and the C60, which has a 3.2 x 1.6m bed.
Steve Bennett, Esko Vice President, Digital Finishing Business, says: “Among the many great new features, one of the eye catchers will be the innovative composite traverse technology that provides the fastest throughput along with the highest quality and precision in cutting and routing compared to all other systems of the same size.”
The key to it is a new composite carbon-based traverse beam that lets it handle larger sheets at high speed with great accuracy. Steel beams typically show some deflection on thicker substrates, leading to slower speeds. It should be capable of running at around 100mpm and should be available early next year.
Esko will also preview its new i-cut Production Console software interface for operating Kongsberg tables.
