Esko’s Kongsberg C Cuts Through Competition to win EDP Award

Esko’s Kongsberg C digital finishing platform has been awarded as Best Large Format Finishing System by the European Digital Press Association (EDP). Marian Zincke, Esko Vice President, Digital Finishing Business, said, ‘We are delighted with this industry recognition. We already knew the Kongsberg C leapfrogs competitive tables in many ways but it is reassuring to see this acknowledged by the EDP association. We believe the “C” in Kongsberg C stands for Capability, Capacity, Consistency, Choice and a Complete solution. Since its launch it has been received with great enthusiasm by our customers.’ Esko Kongsberg C provides the highest versatility for all sign, display and packaging applications. One of the most noticeable new features is the innovative composite traverse technology that provides the fastest throughput along with the highest quality and precision in cutting and routing compared to all other systems of the same size. New models available include the Kongsberg C64 that handles materials 3210 x 3200mm; and the Kongsberg C60 model, accommodating 3210 x 1600mm. The Kongsberg C was first introduced to the market in 2013, and customer shipments around the world started in 2014. These completely re-engineered and fully-featured superwide digital finishing solutions have been designed for 24/7 production and semi-industrial environments. Kongsberg C60 and C64 models feature a unique, extremely rigid, carbon-composite traverse beam that assures excellent precision and supports high speed; fast acceleration; high quality creasing; and exclusive, powerful 3kW milling capabilities. High quality finishing results are due to no left/right/middle variances as a result of traverse bending and no deceleration when demanding materials are processed, with the ability to handle the most complex jobs without sacrificing quality or throughput.
