Esko Launches Large Digital Cutting Table
Esko has launched the Kongsberg C66, a digital finishing table designed for short-run production of corrugated applications. The Kongsberg C66 is said to be the largest digital cutting table for heavy-duty corrugated production. Its combination of size, speed, and precision on heavy-duty rigid materials such as corrugated cartons are said to make it a flexible and effective alternative to conventional die-cutting equipment for short-run corrugated productions of packaging and POP displays.
The Kongsberg C66 can run at 100 mpm. It can handle either manual multi-zone production of large 2.2x3.2-m (87 in. x 126 in.) sheets or single-zone production of large 2.5x4.8-m (98x189-in.) corrugated sheets. Company says this makes it ideally suited for the production of protective packaging with a maximum sheet size of 2.5 x 4.8 m, corrugated containers made from HD double-wall or triple-wall corrugated, and packaging and POP displays. The Kongsberg C66 is also capable of processing other materials required in the protective packaging environment, including foam cushioning materials.
