Esko to Exhibit Kongsberg and i-cut at ISA
Esko plans to exhibit three Kongsberg tables on its booth at the ISA International Sign Expo, April 3 to 6 in Las Vegas, including the XP24, i-XE10 Auto and Kongsberg XN systems.
The Kongsberg XN cutting table – designed to work with a range of materials like vinyl, board or wood – is available in seven different sizes from 66 x 50 inches to 87 x 258 inches. This table’s versatility is based on its ability to integrate five application-specific tools from kiss-cutting to heavy-duty milling. Newly developed tools for the XN include solid board and corrugated paper-core board v-notching inserts.
The new generation of Kongsberg XN systems can also be equipped with an optional 3kW, water-cooled milling spindle, called MultiCUT-HP. This high-powered tool head, according to Esko, offers up to three times more routing productivity relative to earlier generations. Based on the requirements of the MultiCUT-HP, the company has also instituted new variable vacuum hold-down technology that consumes less energy. Users can also add productivity options like a material conveyor, auto-feeder and a roll-off unit.
At ISA, Esko also plans to exhibit the Kongsberg XP24 geared at finishing short-run POP/POS displays because of its speed. With a maximum speed of 66 inches per second, and a maximum working area of 87 x 126 inches, the XP series is designed to convert a range of board, sheet and roll materials.
Esko also plans to exhibit the Kongsberg i-XE10 Auto finishing system with a fully automated sheet feeder and off-load stacker, specifically designed for finishing small-format, prototype, sample and short-run printed materials – rolls or sheets can be processed. The “Pick and Place” automated stacker of the i-XE10 allows for non-stop sorting, while also automatically separating waste from the finished items. The Kongsberg i-XE10 Auto can handle a maximum sheet size of 35 x 47 inches.
All of the Kongsberg tables can be integrated with workflow modules of the i-cut Suite, including i-cut Preflight for editing of incoming PDF files. i-cut Layout is a module to build and edit sheet layouts to optimize substrate use, nesting and tiling. i-cut Vision Pro is used to ensure die-less cutting contours match printed images, particularly when slight distortions arise. i-cut Automate integrates all of the i-cut functions into a single workflow. Esko is also exhibiting its recently released Studio 12 workflow and ArtiosCAD for structural design.
