Kongsberg PCS to show how innovation brings design to life at FESPA Berlin

Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (Kongsberg PCS) will demonstrate how the power and versatility of its digital finishing solutions bring designs to life at the FESPA Global Print Expo in Berlin next month.

The company will showcase its flagship Kongsberg C-Series digital cutting solution, the modular Kongsberg X24 table and the MultiCam Apex 3R CNC router in its large exhibition space (Stand C50, Hall 2.2) at the Berlin show.
"After the success of our participation last year, we are delighted to be back at FESPA," said Wim Brunsting, EMEA Sales Director of Kongsberg PCS. "This year, visitors will be able to examine an even wider range of systems for cutting, creasing and folding a wide variety of materials. We will show how our range of digital finishing solutions helps sign and display manufacturers streamline workflows and automate production to increase efficiency, while also giving designers and operators the creative freedom to realise the ideas that will shape the future of their business. We will prove that complexity is a thing of the past," Wim Brunsting continues.
The Kongsberg C24 offers a combination of a steel table top with an aluminium honeycomb core, rack-and-pinion drive system and dynamic table allocation. It thus ensures the highest cutting precision and consistency. It also offers speed (100 m/min) and acceleration (up to 1.7 G) with fast and precise tool movements for high-quality digital production, even on the tightest delivery schedules.
"Our C24 will illustrate how various innovative tools from Kongsberg open up new freedoms for design and creativity," says Wim Brunsting. "From our CorruSpeed tool, Psaligraphy knife and RotaCut tools to our manual roller feeder, i-Camera and Fast Tool Adapter, visitors can see for themselves that we have the right tooling solutions for every need. We will also be showcasing our impressive VariAngle tool - a groundbreaking innovation for the industry that allows cutting at any angle from 0° to 60° at up to 100 m/min," added Wim Brunsting. "The tool offers complete freedom in designing creative 3D displays and there is no need to stop production when changing tools, dramatically reducing set-up times and increasing cutting speed."
Throughout the stand, the Kongsberg PCS team will also be demonstrating the most versatile digital finishing machine on the market, the Kongsberg X24. "Given today's volatile marketplace, where both customer demands and technology capabilities are changing rapidly, it is important to invest in machines that also offer the flexibility needed to grow with business needs," said Wim Brunsting. "The X24 meets these requirements, not only through its wide range of applications, but also because it is a cutting table that can grow with businesses."
Wim Brunsting announced that the team would be demonstrating add-on tools such as the Kongsberg PowerHead, which is suitable for heavy material with its 150 mm diameter creasing wheels and an equivalent pressure force of 50 kg, and the FoamHead, which uses a pendulum blade for processing foam. "This flexibility to add new tools for new materials, new applications or greater capacity means that with the Kongsberg X24, companies can increase volume and enter new market segments to meet customers' changing needs or to pursue a strategic plan for growth and diversification," said Wim Brunsting.
Wim Brunsting and the Kongsberg PCS team will also be showcasing MultiCam's flagship CNC milling machine, the Apex 3R. It is one of the most versatile CNC routers on the market, setting the standard for milling capabilities with its perfect balance between performance and precision. The Apex 3R has a spindle speed of 4-13.3 hp and can cut a variety of materials, including plastic, aluminium, wood, high-density foam and composites.
"Apex 3R has a solid all-steel tube frame, which guarantees long durability," says Wim Brunsting. "The frame also makes the CNC machine more robust, which reduces vibrations and improves milling quality. Thanks to the standard EZ Control operator interface, companies can start milling immediately and there are minimal interruptions to the workflow. Three-axis motion control enables precise control of milling quality, ensuring precision and high-quality cuts."
"Automation is further simplified by the optional automatic tool changer, which allows the operator to change cutting tools more quickly," says Wim Brunsting. "In addition, a fully programmable CNC cutter is available, allowing operators to cut a variety of materials such as rubber, foam, gaskets and textiles."
Wim Brunsting expects this year's FESPA to be a great success for Kongsberg PCS with four days of informative and inspiring ideas. "We look forward to meeting visitors and learning more about how our latest developments in digital finishing solutions can help them bring their designs to life," said Wim Brunsting.
To see the Kongsberg C24, Kongsberg X24 and MultiCam Apex 3R in action, or to find out more about digital finishing solutions, visit Wim Brunsting and the Kongsberg PCS team at this year's FESPA Global Print Expo from 31 May to 3 June 2022 at stand C50 in Hall 2.2.
German software company OneVision will also be demonstrating the power and precision of Kongsberg PCS cutting solutions at FESPA. The company can be found at stand B31 in hall 3.2, where a Kongsberg X22 table will be used to demonstrate applications created with OneVision software.
