Kongsberg launches small cutter
Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (Kongsberg PCS) has expanded its C Series range of digital finishing tables with the launch of the compact new C20.
The company says it is the smallest high-speed production table on the market, at a compact size of just 1.6m x 1.4m.
According to Kongsberg, while the C20 is the smallest in the Kongsberg C Series range, it retains all the same professional features and specifications as its bigger counterparts.
“We know that industrial manufacturers, as well as small sign shops, require a high-speed cutting table to keep up with the manufacturing process, but floorspace comes at a premium,” said Stuart Fox, president, Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems. “The high cost of owning or renting space is a serious problem for many in the sign and display market. With the new Kongsberg C20, there is no longer any need for those businesses to compromise on production and quality due to a lack of available space.”
Kongsberg says the engineering “ensures the Kongsberg C Series delivers the highest levels of performance". The cutting table uses aerospace technology, combining an aluminum composite tabletop, a rack and pinion drive system and dynamic table mapping. Multiple tool combinations are available during production, and the tooling system includes a material thickness probe, along with an optional camera for registering printed and un-printed material.
“As with our entire C Series range, Kongsberg's high performance tooling has been specifically developed to further increase throughput and quality for users,” added Fox. “The Kongsberg C20 is an investment that will help drive the owner’s creativity and production to new levels.”
Kongsberg is now an independent business, after many years of being owned by Esko.
