Kongsberg goes super-wide
In acknowledgement of the fact that the wide format digital printing sector is now using an ever-increasing variety of materials and strives to enhance productivity, Esko has introduced a new Kongsberg digital finishing system, the Kongsberg C, the first model of which, the Kongsberg C64 was introduced at the recent 2013 SGIA Expo in Orlando, Florida.
Kongsberg C systems are the first fully-featured super-wide digital finishing systems and has been comletely re-engineered so that it is suitable for 24/7 production and use in semi-industrial environments. Along with substantial flexibility, the new, wider format has been designed to work in tandem with modern 3.2-metre wide format printers outputing onto wide rolls and wide sheets.
The Kongsberg C64 model works with 3.210 mm by 3.200 mm long materials, while the Kongsberg C60 model accommodates materials 3.210 mm x 1.600 mm. Covering more than 10 feet across the table, a unique, extremely rigid, carbon-composite traverse beam ensures excellent precision and supports high speed, fast acceleration, high quality creasing and exclusive, powerful 3kW milling capabilities. Thus, the Kongsberg C always produces high quality finishing results, with no left/right/middle variances due to traverse bending. Unlike other super-wide finishers, the Kongsberg C does not decelerate with demanding materials, handling the most complex jobs without sacrificing quality or throughput.
Orders are currently being taken for delivery during the first quarter of 2014.
