Kongsberg C Features

Carbon composite traverse

Carbon composite traverse

The innovative carbon fiber traverse of 3,2 meters makes the Kongsberg C uniquely equipped for high speeds and fast acceleration.

Its rigid quality makes it possible to maintain a consistent accuracy on all materials. It also minimizes deflection when carrying heavy tooling or creasing with high down-force.

High powered 3kW milling

High powered 3kW milling

The Kongsberg C tables can be configured for milling applications ranging from sporadic, light-duty routing to lengthy jobs working with heavy-duty materials – all with record breaking productivity.

The Kongsberg C is the only super-wide finisher with a 3kW continuous duty High-Performance Milling Unit.

Down force for creasing

Down force for creasing

The Heavy Duty Tool Unit offers 500N (110lbs) of down force, sufficient to crease even the most challenging materials at large diameter creasing dimensions (150mm).

Tool calibration

Tool calibration

Tool, bit or blade exchange is fast and effortless thanks to the integrated tool tip height sensor. It accurately and automatically calibrates the working depth for different tools and greatly contributes to simple operation.

Widest range of tools for all applications and all substrates

Widest range of tools for all applications and all substrates

A complete set of advanced, quick change tool heads provides versatility, making it easy to set up the cutting table to process any material.

Table mapping

Table mapping

The dynamic table mapping procedure provides a real-time update to the exact field conditions.

The precise automatic z-control during cutting and routing, using table-top mapping, guarantees unsurpassed finishing quality.

Ergonomic design

Ergonomic design

The workstation is designed with the focus on operator safety and ease of use. It comes standard with an integrated joystick and operator panel. The workstation can be mounted left, right and in the machine front, when no conveyor feed option is installed.

Rack-and-pinion drive system

Rack-and-pinion drive system

The rack-and-pinion drive system provides speed, durability and the brutal power required to drive through dense, thick materials.

The system offers great dynamic repeatability at heavy workloads.

Auxiliary control panel

Auxiliary control panel

An additional control panel at the end of the traverse offers easy access for the operator, speeding up production.

Kongsberg Automate boost production with automation

Kongsberg cutting tables are designed for flexibility and throughput. There are many ways to automate certain parts of the finishing workflow, no matter what material you need to process.

  • Sheet automation with the Kongsberg i-BF feeder adds more productivity
  • Roll automation is possible as a standalone solution, or as part of sheet & roll automation unit tailored to meet an increased production volume. Read more about the Kongsberg Take Up Unit for flexible materials.
  • Multizone production allows you to load two sheets and to double the production capacity on your Kongsberg cutting table
  • Feeder & stacker robotics: Robotic automation brings new advantages to material handling like stacking and feeding

Automation Engine

Automation Engine

Automation Engine ties the pieces of the i-cut Suite together, and automates the entire prepress production process.

Users can build dynamic workflows that automate repetitive prepress tasks, thereby enhancing productivity, reducing operator intervention and errors, and saving valuable time, money and materials in the production process.

Device Manager

Device Manager

Device Manager gives better control over finishing production. Work in progress and the status and queues of all connected devices are clearly visualized on screen.

Operators use an intuitive drag-and-drop interface to prioritize table queues, insert rush jobs and even balance workloads between tables.

ArtiosCAD: the power to build structural designs

ArtiosCAD: the power to build structural designs

For 3D projects, not only do you need graphic design software, but structural design software as well. ArtiosCAD, the world’s most popular and advanced structural design software for packages, displays and signs, is the ideal product for all corrugated, folding carton and POP designers.

Users browsing from ArtiosCAD’s extensive design library can find parametric design templates from which to either design projects in minutes — with the freedom to resize or redesign components — or stimulate the creative design process. ArtiosCAD can significantly help sign and display shops do an exceptional job creating structures for 3D displays.
