New Esko motorized roll feeder for digital cutting of soft signage

May 13, 2019  By PrintAction Staff

With the goal of providing sign and display producers with more flexibility, efficiency and accuracy in operations, Esko will present two new hardware solutions at FESPA 2019: the new motorized roll feeder for soft signage applications and the Kongsberg C Edge, the upgradable digital cutting table released earlier this year. The latest version of its integrated software range Esko Software Platform 18.1 will also be on show.

The motorized roll feeder, according to Esko, is the only solution in the soft signage industry that delivers great cutting results on tensile materials from the very first cut through to the end of the roll. Designed to eliminate inaccurate cuts on soft signage jobs due to wrinkles, stretch distortion or imperfectly rewound rolls, the solution incorporates an active material feed to avoid stretch by actively feeding the material to the Kongsberg C64 digital cutting table, rather than pulling it.

Meanwhile the new upgradable Kongsberg C Edge is said to deliver high speed production capability of up to 75m/min at an acceleration of 1G, designed to keep up with the demands of today’s wide-format digital print market. The table is complemented with a range of customizable fittings, including a conveyor feed system, a new Fast Tool Adapter designed to reduce downtime and maximize performance, a heavy-duty unit for corrugated crease lines, and the CorruSpeed tool, a non-oscillating device for cutting.
