GHENT, BELGIUM | Esko reports the introduction of the Kongsberg C, a new digital finishing system said to answer the need for faster turnaround times on an increasing variety of materials in the wide-format digital printing market.
“This is not scaled up from a light-duty finishing table,” says Tom Naess, Esko product manager CAM. “It’s a completely re-engineered platform after a decade of the highly successful and well-known Kongsberg X-series. We wanted to make sure it was designed for 24/7 production and semi-industrial environments. Along with substantial flexibility, the new, wider format perfectly fits modern 3.2-meter-wide format printers, working with wide rolls and wide sheets.”
The Kongsberg C64 model works with materials 126 in. wide x 126 in. long. The Kongsberg C60 model accommodates sizes 126 in. wide x 63 in. long. Both are said to produce high quality finishing results, with no left/right/middle variances due to traverse bending. Will not decelerate with demanding materials, handling the most complex jobs without sacrificing quality or throughput, company says.
New tool covers offer clean, fast changing of the full range of Kongsberg XP tooling, and design is said to be engineered for ergonomics and safety and to offer a simple interface that helps reduce operator error.
