Esko will be fielding two stands at FESPA 2018, (Stands C48, Hall 3.2 and D30, Hall 5.2), where visitors will be able to discover the path to improved productivity and profitability.
For sign and display graphics businesses, Esko will offer Automation Engine, which significantly increases workflow automation with less waste in finishing, as setups are automatically loaded into the Kongsberg workflow. It automates a wide range of tasks, ranging from product creation and preflight, to approvals and production. Its customisable dashboard and reports ensure everyone involved in the process has immediate access to all information required to speed work through the plant and make fact-based business decisions for continuous operational improvement.
In finishing, Kongsberg Automate aids increased productivity by offering a broad array of impressive innovations that boost the performance of digital finishing operations to industrial levels. This includes the ability to add robotics for loading new materials and offloading finished materials for increased productivity and reduced operator interaction.
At FESPA, a Kongsberg C64 a multifunctional, super-wide digital cutting table for sign and display applications, will be shown equipped with a feeder and stacker to deliver the ultimate 24/7 performance, enabling it to keep perfect pace with today’s faster and wider digital printers. With stack height at 915 mm/36 in and quick automatic load cycles, it is the optimal solution for short run production on all typical packaging and display materials and investment in future-proofing sign and display graphics businesses.
Also on display on the Esko stand will be a Kongsberg X20 entry-level cutting table, together with a wide range of speciality tools. Offering the ultimate in versatility, these tools deliver speed, power and flexibility to handle a wide variety of materials, such as corrugated, folding carton, solid board, foam, coating blankets, wood and a long list of plastics.
Esko will also be present on Stand D30 Hall 5.2, where the focus will be on solutions for the Digital Corrugated sector. For the first time, Esko will demonstrate its WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated, a packaging management solution for corrugated converters designed to handle design requests in minutes. Esko will also demonstrate the key elements of its ArtiosCAD solution for structural design, Studio for 3D projects, and i-cut Suite for optimization of prepress production.
