Visitors to C!Print event in Lyon will be able to see first-hand the power, performance and versatility of the Kongsberg C64, when the flagship table from Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (Kongsberg PCS) takes center stage at the MultiGraphic booth. From 31 January to 2 February, the team from the international graphic arts specialists will showcase to visitors at the Eurexpo venue just how the impressive Kongsberg C64 can simplify any job while also bringing designs to life.
“C!Print brings together a whole community of professionals who are looking for inspiration and innovative solutions,” said Eric Espinasse, Sales Channel Account Manager for Kongsberg PCS. “We are delighted to work with our distribution partners at MultiGraphic to ensure visitors are able to see for themselves how the C64 digital finishing table and its variety of tooling options enables businesses to streamline workflows and automate production to boost efficiency.
“We’re also excited to highlight how our technical innovations empower designers and operators with the creative freedom to generate the ideas that will drive the future of their company,” he said. “The Kongsberg C64 is the digital finishing solution that fits today’s digital production requirements without compromising on size, versatility or finishing quality, and is the first multifunction super-wide digital finisher for signage, display and packaging applications.”
Built for the highest level of performance and redefining the possibilities of digital finishing, the Kongsberg C64 offers speeds of 100 m/min (66 in/sec) and acceleration up to 1.7G, with quick and precise tool movements making high quality digital production possible, even under the tightest of deadlines.
“Visitors can see first-hand how its state-of-the-art engineering and technology - which combines an aluminum composite tabletop, rack and pinion drive system and dynamic table mapping - delivers the highest levels of cutting accuracy and consistency,” he said. “The extreme rigidity of the carbon traverse allows high speed, accuracy and a heavy payload, even when working on the most demanding materials.”
The table works with a wide variety of optional tool units, with multiple tool combinations available during production, depending on the materials being processed. The tooling system includes a material thickness probe and an optional camera for registering printed and unprinted material.
“At C!Print, we’ll demonstrate the Kongsberg High Frequency Vibracut Knife Tool,” said Eric. “With its powerful motor, it is ideal for cutting heavily recycled board at efficient speeds. We’ll also show visitors how the Rigid Material Knife Tool excels at everything from lightweight detailed work to cutting heavy rigid board like plastic foamed PVC 3 mm,” said Eric.
“We’ll demo our specialist PressCut Knife Tool, developed for kiss cutting adhesive vinyl and foils, as well as the RotaCut Tool for cutting textiles, canvas, mesh and other air transparent materials,” he added. “The set-up will be completed with a wide format roll feeder, which simplifies and adds further speed and efficiency to production.”
