Esko-Graphics bvba Key Developments

Esko Announces Leadership Transition

Esko announced that Udo Panenka, Senior Vice President for Global Sales & Marketing will succeed Carsten Knudsen as President on 1 January 2015. Over the near term, Carsten Knudsen will continue to support Esko and Danaher in an advisory role. Udo Panenka joined Esko from Kollmorgen, another Danaher business, earlier this year, where he was Vice President & General Manager for Industrial Automation in Europe and India. Udo joined Kollmorgen in 2008 and has served in several key leadership roles with increasing responsibility.

Esko Launches i-cut Production Console Operating Platform for Kongsberg Digital Finishing Systems

Esko launched i-cut Production Console operating platform for Kongsberg digital finishing systems. This newly developed front-end operating system will be the common platform for all Kongsberg digital finishing systems. It combines the feature set of the XL-Guide tailored for packaging applications and i-cut Vision Pro, the industry standard front-end for cutting and short run productions. Designed for all operations on all Kongsberg tables, the i-cut Production Console forms a solid foundation for any future developments. The iPC instinctively supports the machine operator and displays colors with a meaning, which draws focus to the right area at the right time. The i-cut Production Console (iPC) drives all functionality found on Kongsberg tables, such as camera control, machine set up, tool recognition, calibration and tool adjustments. The i-cut Production Console is ingeniously designed to guide and support the operator, and incorporates a number of logical, user-friendly features: from its icon-based graphical interface with color coded alerts and updates, to the ability to follow production progress from a distance. The i-cut Production Console is ingeniously designed to guide and support the operator, and incorporates a number of logical, user-friendly features. The legacy of i-cut Vision Pro software along with the Esko XL-Guide that operated previous generations of Kongsberg tables has created a firm base for the iPC to deliver on Esko’s Highest Flexibility promise – one common user interface for all tables and all applications, allowing users to easily understand how to expand the capabilities of their machine into different business areas. The i-cut Production Console is available now, worldwide through all Esko sales and distribution channels for Kongsberg XN and V Series tables. Beginning in 2015, it will become available for most Kongsberg models, including upgrades for existing customers.
