EskoArtwork has launched an extended version of its XP cutting table - the Kongsberg XP Auto which incorporates automatic loading and unloading to give what the company describes as the highest digital converting capacity available on the market. Esko describes the XP Auto as the perfect complement to any wide format digital printing set up, enabling a full digital production workflow for POP displays and short-run packaging work.
The Kongsberg XP Auto is optimised for packaging and display manufacturers that want to run production series up to about 1000 sheets or stacks of material up to one meter high. It can run without the continuous supervision of an operator, thus saving considerable costs. Operators can also leave the machine working unattended overnight as a remote alert system automatically sends a message to the operator if operation has stopped.
The system is particularly valuable for producing POP display work and short-run customised packaging with short turnaround times, and a milling capability is optional for materials such as MDF, Forex, Dibond and acrylic panels.
The new Kongsberg XP Auto, including a large format XP44 model, is already operating at SCA Packaging Norway in Sarpsborg, a plant that is part of the Europe-wide packaging production specialist SCA Group. SCA Packaging Norway specialises in short run, on-demand corrugated boxes and in-store POP display boxes for the Norwegian and Swedish markets.
Atle Andreassen, managing director at SCA Packaging Norway says: “We can produce larger boxes than before. Multiple part jobs, often needed for in-store displays, can now fit into a single sheet which saves time and costs both at the printing and cutting stage. The XP Auto can also cut the protective foam for the inside of the boxes, which we have not been able to do before.”
