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.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
