Esko introduces new Kongsberg C digital finishing platform. The first model of a completely re-engineered platform is a unique 3.2-meter wide system. Powerful, rigid, carbon-composite traverse technology assures exceptional precision and speed.

The new Kongsberg C table is designed to keep up with the faster, wider printers of today and tomorrow.

Exceeding the standards in versatility, precision and productivity, the Kongsberg C cutting table is the most advanced multifunction wide-format digital finisher for packaging, signage and display applications.

Acknowledging that the wide format digital printing world continues to rapidly escalate productivity that requires faster turnaround times on an ever increasing variety of materials, Esko answers that trend with the introduction of a completely new Kongsberg digital finishing system, the Kongsberg C.

Kongsberg C systems are the first fully-featured super-wide digital finishing systems. “This is not scaled up from a light duty finishing table – it’s a completely re-engineered platform after a decade of the highly successful and well-known Kongsberg X-series,” comments Tom Naess, Esko Product Manager CAM. “We wanted to make sure that it was designed for 24/7 production and semi-industrial environments. Along with substantial flexibility, the new, wider format perfectly fits modern 3.2-meter wide format printers, working with wide rolls and wide sheets.”

A large, complete finishing system for large, diverse jobs

The Kongsberg C64 model works with 126” wide x 126” long (3.210 mm by 3.200 mm) materials, perfectly fitting modern wide format printers. Also available is the Kongsberg C60 model, accommodating 126” wide x 63” long (3.210 mm x 1.600 mm) sizes. Covering more than 10 feet across the table, a unique, extremely rigid, carbon-composite traverse beam assures excellent precision and supports high speed, fast acceleration, high quality creasing and exclusive, powerful 3kW milling capabilities. Thus, the Kongsberg C always produces high quality finishing results, with no left/right/middle variances due to traverse bending. Unlike other super-wide finishers, the Kongsberg C does not decelerate with demanding materials, handling the most complex jobs without sacrificing quality or throughput.
