Category 5 Imaging has installed an Esko Kongsberg i-XP24 cutting table in its  20,000-square-foot facility in Burlington, Ontario.

Founded in 2006, Category 5 was one of Canada’s first large-format-printing operations based entirely on inkjet production. The company currently has 28 employees focused on the operation of five inkjet systems, as well as in-house creative, prepress and fulfillment services. The company previously used third-party services when customers required custom die cut pieces, which has now been addressed by the Kongsberg installation.

“We decided to add more people in prepress and build more efficient internal rules and procedures to help feed the presses,” said Greg Priede, Category 5's General Manager. “But our primary problem was finishing jobs. We were at a point in time where our workload was too much for one shift, but would not keep two shifts busy. Our straight-line roll cutting device helped, but we needed a new table to help get jobs out the door faster.”

The Kongsberg i-XP24 is primarily designed for finishing short-run POP/POS displays. With a maximum working area of 66 x 126 inches and a maximum speed of 66 inches per second, the i-XP series can convert a range of board, sheet and roll materials.
