Esko Kongsberg X Edge
The reliable cutter for signage and displays production at an attractive investment level
The Kongsberg X Edge for signage comes in two versions, one basic version without milling and one with the MultiCUT tool head offering milling productivity and a camera system.
The MultiCUT combines all the tool insert options with a milling spindle up to 45.000 RPM. It’s perfect for a wide range of signage materials. The air-cooled milling bit assures edge quality during high-speed milling of acrylics and other synthetics. The switch-operated bit exchange eliminates the need for hand tools.
The camera system and innovative front-end software make it the perfect entry level solution for signage production.
Benefits of using a Kongsberg X Edge

Kongsberg X Edge tooling
Milling with MultiCUT
The MultiCUT combines all the tool insert options with a milling spindle up to 60.000 RPM. This makes it the most versatile solution for POP display makers and sign producers. who can process flexible substrates to folding carton to hard PVC and acrylic panels.
The air-cooled milling bit assures edge quality during high-speed milling of acrylics and other synthetics. The switch-operated bit exchange eliminates the need for hand tools.
Highly accurate cutting on flexible & thin materials with the FlexiHead
The FlexiHead offers highly accurate, powerful cutting — on all flexible and thin materials such as paper, folding carton, vinyl, textile and more. The FlexiHead, like all the other toolheads, is attached to a very precise servo axis controlling the tool depth when cutting, creasing and routing.
Three configurable tool stations accommodate a full range of standard tool inserts. Specially designed knife and crease tool inserts are available to produce folding cartons with the same high throughput as corrugated jobs.

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 printer and digital finisher. You save time and labor, reduce material waste, better utilize your printer, 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 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.
