At FESPA 2018, visitors to Esko (www.esko.com) Stands 3.2-C48 and 5.2-D30 during the 15 to 18 May event in Berlin, will be invited to “Take the Fastlane” for their businesses by collecting their suitcases on the Esko stand to begin an exciting journey to improved productivity. 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.

The analog-to-digital transformation is sweeping through the sign, display and corrugated markets as sign providers and corrugated converters look beyond their production equipment to find an automated end-to-end workflow that ensures faster time to market, fewer errors and improved profitability. Waste can be created everywhere; via complex manual steps, equipment idle time, incorrect material handling or lack of workflow control. Many providers are seeking to eliminate waste and streamline the process from a design request coming in to shipping out a product. At FESPA 2018, they will find the path to this improved productivity and profitability at Esko Stands 3.2-C48 and 5.2-D30 during the 15 to 18 May event in Berlin.
