Esko to showcase breakthrough automation for the Sign and Display Market
On display will be two cutting tables - the Esko Kongsberg C64 and Kongsberg X24. The Kongsberg C64 is a multifunctional super wide digital cutting table for signage and display applications. The Kongsberg X24 cutting table comes with a wide range of specialty tools. These tools offer speed, power and flexibility to handle a wide variety of materials, such as corrugated, folding carton, solid board, foam, coating blankets, wood and a long list of plastics. Esko will also demonstrate its portfolio of software – Studio structural design software and ArtiosCAD for 3D projects, i-cut Suite to optimize prepress production and Automation Engine QuickStart for Sign.
Geert De Proost, Director Solutions Marketing, “Our focus is to support the sign and display sector by tailoring solutions that address the requirements of a company’s business strategy. Our automated workflow will dramatically boost production capacity without the need to invest in additional headcount. It will also eliminate human errors in every step of the way. This frees up time and money to allow businesses to add value and diversify. We are really excited to present Automation Engine QuickStart to the UK Sign and Display market. With QuickStart, we offer companies out of the box, proven and expert workflows for sign and wide format production. No need to hire experts, no long learning curves. We get them trained up and in production in just 5 days. Our tools have been developed to offer maximum OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) on the shop floor and reduce waste. The difference with Esko tools is in our analysis of the customer’s needs; we look first at the company’s strategy upstream and downstream and focus on eliminating pressure points, bottlenecks and errors. Based on many years’ experience, Esko is once more leading the way in automation and simplification. The Esko team is looking forward to meeting visitors and customers at Sign and Digital UK.”
