Kongsberg to display automated digital finishing at IndiaCorr expo

Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (Kongsberg PCS) will demonstrate how its flagship Kongsberg C Series digital cutting table helps businesses automate for the future and bring designs to life at this year’s IndiaCorr expo to be held in Mumbai from 8 to 10 October 2022.

The company will demonstrate the power, performance and versatility of its digital finishing solutions to visitors at India’s largest and most comprehensive corrugated event.

“The Kongsberg C24 delivers short-run production at the fastest possible speeds,” said Rafiq Shaikh, sales leader and service leader for Kongsberg PCS. “With its high speed of 100m/min and 1.7G acceleration, the C24 is built for the highest performance, enabling businesses to boost productivity and astound customers with impressive, high-quality results and fast turnarounds.

“Fully upgradable for full automation and powerful enough to handle any task, we’re looking forward to showing how Kongsberg PCS digital finishing solutions help businesses to find the balance between creativity and sustainability – bringing designs to life,” he said.

The Kongsberg C24 will be at the heart of the Kongsberg PCS booth, #A16 in Hall 4 of the Bombay Exhibition Center.

“We are excited to showcase how the digital finishing table and tooling options enable packaging and display businesses to streamline workflows and automate production to boost efficiency, while empowering designers and operators with the creative freedom to generate the ideas that will drive the future of their businesses,” he said.

The Kongsberg C24 combines a steel tabletop with aluminum honeycomb core, a rack and pinion drive system and dynamic table mapping to deliver the greatest cutting accuracy and consistency.

A maximum speed of 100 m/min (66 in/sec) and acceleration up to 1.7 G, combined with quick and precise tool movements, makes high quality digital production possible, even under the tightest deadlines. 

 “We’ll also demonstrate to visitors how a range of innovative Kongsberg tooling and automation delivers new freedoms in design and creativity,” said Rafiq. “We’ll be showing how the VariAngle tool enables cutting at any angle from 0o and 60o at high speeds, giving total creative freedom and delivering the advantage needed to stand out from the competition.

 “We’ll also show how our dual heavy-duty unit makes it possible to cut, crease and perforate a single job without the need to change tools,” he said. “With 50kg downforce, converters can create even 3A fluted boards, while the optional perforation wheel is perfect for finishing boxes efficiently.”

Rafiq said the display would also feature the Kongsberg Rigid Material Knife Tool – a static knife tool suitable for a wide range of materials at high speed. “The Rigid Material tool can be used for everything from folding cartons and bubble boards widely used in the protective packaging industry,” he said. “A large selection of blades makes it possible to diversify your business and cut lightweight detailed work through to heavy rigid board like plastic foamed PVC 3mm.”

The Kongsberg PCS team will be present at Booth #A16, Hall 4 at the IndiaCorr event.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
