10West invests in Kongsberg C24 Edge to solve ‘need for speed’
June 16, 2023 By PrintAction Staff
The Oshawa, Ont.-based company has acquired the Kongsberg C24 Edge digital cutting solution, together with a host of tooling options, to boost production speed.
“We started out as vehicle wrap pioneers in the early nineties, but over the last 30 years we have grown to become a successful large format printing and national vehicle wrap company,” explained Rob Tenwesteneind, brand specialist and owner of 10West. “As we continue to grow and attract an increasing volume of work, from advertising graphics and wraps through to displays vinyls, it became clear we simply needed to cut faster. The additional speed of the Kongsberg means we are able to both ensure we can meet our customers’ demands while maintaining our reputation for delivering quality, as well as expanding our product portfolio and offering new services.”
Tenwesteneind explained the investment has not only enabled 10West to handle larger production runs in faster turnaround times, but also add new products to its offering including the introduction of packaging production.
Complementing the Kongsberg C24 Edge, 10West also acquired the Multicut HP Head with 3kw router, vinyl kiss cutting tooling, a conveyor with roll off unit and packaging creasing and cutting tools.
“We also have the specialist Braille Tool, which enables us to produce signage with the raised braille dots, which is required by customers throughout the world,” said Rob. “This new table and tooling combination has given us the confidence and ability to accept any size production run as we continue to grow our business.”
