Esko to demonstrate efficient workflow at FESPA Digital
Esko will hold the demonstration of its new Kongsberg C64 digital finishing system at next month's FESPA digital exhibition in Amsterdam.
“The pressure to complete more jobs per production shift means operations are looking for ways to maximize their capacity while keeping a close eye on profitability,” comments Armand Gougay, Esko Vice President EMEA.
“There are a number of ways Esko can help them make changes to address these issues, from highly flexible and responsive hardware to ingenious, easy-to-use software. At FESPA Digital 2016, we will be explaining these possibilities and demonstrating exactly what the tangible results can be.”
Among Esko’s solutions developed to address the every-day challenges faced by sign and display operations, is its Kongsberg C64 digital finishing system.
The Kongsberg C64, part of the re-engineered Kongsberg C-series platform, is a state-of-the-art, super-wide digital finisher that offers the highest possible performance level. Precision and productivity are guaranteed, thanks to the carbon-composite traverse beam, which is unique to Esko. It assures excellent precision and supports high speed and fast acceleration, with high quality creasing and the powerful 3kW milling capability exclusive to Esko. Its maximum workspace of 3.210 mm by 3.200 mm makes it ideally suited for modern wide format printers.

Software suite for hard results
Business performance is also supported by Esko’s ever-evolving software suite. It includes the highly flexible i-cut Production Console (iPC) which drives all functionality on Esko Kongsberg tables. Its simple-to-use interface ensures efficient, safe and high quality operation. It also delivers operator guidance and precise machine control thanks to its ingenious design and range of logical, user-friendly features.

ArtiosCAD and Studio, Esko’s structural design software for 3D design of displays and other structures, will also be on show at FESPA along with the company’s Automation Engine, which manages pre-press workflow automation.
These dedicated tools streamline structural design, product development, virtual prototyping and manufacturing. In addition, visitors will be able to take a closer look at Esko’s Automation Engine which manages prepress workflow automation.
“While the capabilities of our hardware solutions have been expanded to meet the demand for highly flexible fast turnaround job completion, software is an essential tool in the fast, accurate and cost-effective development of creative packaging,” Gougay concludes.
“At FESPA Digital 2016, we will show visitors how integrated end-to-end production is essential to position print production operations positioned for profitable and responsive success, today and into the future.”
Esko will be located on stand H20 in Hall 1 at FESPA Digital 2016, which will take place from 8-11 March in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
