New cutting table slashes costly reinvestment

A new upgradable cutting table design launched by Esko aims to help customers to avoid costly reinvestment as business grows.

The Kongsberg C Edge is the newest addition to the company’s digital cutting table range and has been described as a “breakthrough innovation” in the Kongsberg C multifunction, digital finishing series.

Designed specifically for signage and corrugated packaging converters, the cutting table has high speed production capability up to 75m/m at an acceleration of 1G.

“The new C Edge is designed to grow with our customers,” explains Russell Weller, Esko product manager. “Unlike other tables on the market, the C Edge is completely upgradable avoiding the impact of having to reinvest when business expands.

“The C Edge evolves with a business to unlock production flexibility and profitability, and delivers exceptional cutting quality and milling accuracy at a remarkably cost-effective price.”

In line with its upgradable selling point, the table is available with or without a conveyor and can be fitted with Esko’s new second ‘Fast Tool’ adapter to reduce manual tool changes and downtime.

For corrugated packaging manufacturers, the C-Edge can also be fitted with a heavy-duty unit with a 50kg downforce to produce high-quality crease lines with a 150mm crease wheel.

The table can also be fitted with Esko’s CorruSpeed tool which has been developed for cutting corrugated board at high production speeds without oscillation.
