Kongsberg X Edge tooling
The MultiCut toolhead for the Kongsberg X Edge allows for entry-level milling, contour cutting, routing, drilling and engraving. It’s suitable for routing a wide range of materials such as foamed PVC, solid PVC/PS, acrylic, Aluminium Composite Material (ACM), MDF, and wood. The 1kW spindle has speeds of up to 45,000 rpm. This tooling head has an air-cooling feature for the milling bit that assures the quality of the edge when working with acrylic and other synthetic materials. It comes with two regular tool positions facilitating the usage of all standard tools.
The FlexiHead is widely used for folding carton, corrugated and most other paper boards. It combines precision and power even for the most complex and compact materials such as solid board and the full portfolio of synthetic materials used for packaging and displays. Crease tool inserts are available for folding carton production that have the same high throughput as corrugated jobs. FlexiHead is typically used for flexible materials too and offers 3 tool positions for the full range of standard insert tools.

Powerful software integration
i-cut Production Console
i-cut Production Console is the next generation front-end for efficient operation of Kongsberg cutting tables.
The intuitive, completely redesigned, user interface enables straightforward and efficient operation. The improved front-end allows operators to get the most out of the Kongsberg tables while optimizing day to day production.
i-cut Suite: the power to optimize large-format production
Eliminate errors, save time and reduce waste with i-cut Suite, the industry standard design-to-print-to-cut workflow.
i-cut Suite standardizes the way graphical files are sent to the and digital finisher. You save time and labor, reduce material waste, better utilize your , create the most accurate and efficient cutting paths for your Kongsberg table, and create great quality output — every time.
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 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
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 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.
