The label industry has continued to face the challenges of producing more labels faster—but in shorter runs. This has resulted in lead-time pressure and the growing complexity of workflows supporting the need for greater efficiencies. At the center is the need for supply chain partners to help brand owners build engaging, omnichannel, go-to-market campaigns, with labeled products at the core of the workflow. It requires Esko’s seamless ‘Packaging Connected’ vision, linking Esko’s broad portfolio of label production technologies with a wide range of industry partners to assure ‘best-in-class’ solutions. This is no better exemplified than Esko’s presence at many booths at Labelexpo Americas 2018.

In addition to Automation Engine QuickStart for Sign and WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated converters, the company will be introducing a brand-new Flip-Side Camera for Kongsberg cutting tables equipped with a Feeder and Stacker. This truly unique solution saves the 20 to 30 minutes of manual set-up time typically required to ensure accurate cutting of corrugated board for in-store displays as well as other applications. When using the Kongsberg Feeder and Stacker, the camera scans the underside of the sheet to locate registration marks, barcodes containing set-up instructions, and the corner of the sheet. It is then able to cut and crease accurately by calculating where the registration marks are in reference to the corner, with limited or no operator intervention.
