Visitors to this year’s FESPA Global Expo will be able to see first-hand how the power, performance and versatility of Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems’ digital finishing solutions bring designs to life, when the company unveils a showcase of samples, designs and displays.

Following our success at last year’s FESPA expo, we really wanted to put creativity front and center for this year’s event,” said David Preskett, Vice President of Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems, EMEA and APAC. “We are incredibly proud of our innovations and are always excited to conduct live demos to show just how effective and efficient they are,” he said, “but this year, we decided to also use our booth to shine the spotlight on some of the creative designs that have been realized using Kongsberg tables and tools.”

Throughout the FESPA Global Expo, which is held from 23-26 May at the Messe Munich, Germany, the creativity showcase will grow - with displays, signs and other end applications that are made live on the booth using the Kongsberg and MultiCam tables on display, being added daily.

“We will have our flagship Kongsberg C Series digital cutting solution and the MultiCam Apex 3R CNC router on our display area (Stand B30, Hall A1), where visitors can see the ease and speed with which our systems cut, crease, fold and finish a variety of materials,” said David. “We’ll showcase how these advanced solutions enable sign and display businesses to streamline workflows and automate production to boost efficiency. At the same time, designers and operators feel empowered with the creative freedom that enables them to generate the ideas that will drive the future of their business,” he said.

The robust and reliable Kongsberg C24 combines strength and speed with quick and precise tool movements, making high quality digital production possible, even under the tightest deadlines.

“With our C24, we’ll demonstrate how a range of innovative Kongsberg tooling delivers new freedoms in design and creativity,” said David. “For example, visitors to our booth will see how our CorruSpeed tool, Psaligraphy knife and RotaCut tools make it possible to make the most creative designs a practical reality, while options like the manual roll feeder, i-camera and Fast Tool Adapter drive productivity and efficiency gains for businesses.

The MultiCam APEX 3R

“We’re also bringing our amazing VariAngle tool to Munich, back by popular demand,” added David. “We wowed crowds last year with demos of how this breakthrough innovation for the industry enables cutting at any angle from 0o to 60o at up to 100m/min, delivering total freedom in the design of 3D creative displays. At this year’s FESPA, we will put the VariAngle through its paces once more, as we bring to life exciting creations in live demos throughout the day.”

David said the Kongsberg PCS team will also showcase MultiCam’s flagship Apex 3R CNC router, one of the most versatile CNC Routers on the market that sets the standard for routing capabilities with its perfect balance between performance and precision. With spindle speeds ranging from 4-13.3 HP, the Apex 3R can cut a variety of materials including plastic, aluminum, wood, high-density foam, and composite materials.

“The heavy, all-steel tube frame of the APEX 3R ensures maximum durability,” said David. “This also makes the CNC machine more rigid, which reduces vibration and improves routing quality. The EZ Control operator interface, included as standard, ensures businesses can start routing right away and have minimal interruption in work processes, while a three-axis motion control system gives tight control over routing quality for precision and quality cutting.

“We’re looking forward to demonstrating the capabilities of the APEX 3R at FESPA, and showing how automation is again made easy with the optional automatic tool changer, enabling operators to make cutting tool changes faster,” said David. “With a fully programmable CNC knife that enables users to cut a wide range of materials such as rubber, foam, gaskets and textiles, we’re excited to see how quickly and easily we can bring our customers’ designs to life.”

To see the Kongsberg C24 and MultiCam Apex 3R in action or to discuss digital finishing solutions, visit the Kongsberg PCS team at Stand B30, Hall A1 at this year’s FESPA Global Print Expo, 23-26 May 2023.
