Esko Makes Kongsberg Tables Even More Productive at ISA 2016 with New i-cut Production Console Tools

Esko will show its wide range of innovative, and scalable, workflow and finishing solutions to empower sign and display companies to drive new business. This includes new, innovative software tools that will help sign shops get the most productivity out of their finishing systems. Esko will be showcasing two models of its Kongsberg family, the market's most robust offering of digital finishing systems. The Kongsberg C64 is a superwide (126" x 126") digital finisher that offers the possible performance. Precision and productivity over ten feet are guaranteed the carbon composite traverse beam, which is unique to Esko. The Kongsberg C also is the only super wide finisher with a 3kW continuous duty high performance milling unit. On the Kongsberg C64 table, Esko will also be showing short run scalability with a large stack capability and automation. It is capable of four feed cycles per minute in a continuous material flow. Material is loaded with a fork truck or pallet jack--either portrait or landscape. It also is available with an optional roll feeder. The second table, the Kongsberg XN, is easily the most versatile digital finishing device ever introduced. Whether producing vinyls, boards or wood the Kongsberg XN brings the best quality for any job or application. It comes with industry standard print to cut registration, a camera system for vision cutting among many other features. While the Kongsberg XN24 on the booth is 66" x 126", the XN product family is available in seven different sizes from 66" x 50" to 87" x 258". The icut Production Console (iPC) drives all Kongsberg table functionality, such as camera control, machine set up, tool recognition, calibration and tool adjustments. On display at ISA will be new features Esko recently announced the frontend operating system. With these features, precise production planning and prioritizing in the digital finishing operation becomes easier to manage. Esko has also integrated its Kongsberg tables with its workflow automation software, Automation Engine. Automation Engine's Device Manager gives better control over finishing production. Work in progress and the status and queues of all connected devices are clearly visualized on screen. The software determines optimal sheet nesting to increase production capacity. Operators use an intuitive drag and drop interface to prioritize table queues, insert rush jobs and even balance workloads between tables. The new Kongsberg Estimating software module delivers against these challenges. Packaging, signage and display designs are prepared, and production estimates are generated automatically, based on production metadata such as substrate type and thickness. Also on display will be Esko's icut Suite, a collection of prepress and preproduction software solutions providing the tasks sign and display companies need, such as preflighting, file editing, cutting paths and nesting. It helps companies eliminate errors, save time and reduce waste. Adding Esko's Automation Engine manages prepress workflow automation with dynamic workflows. Automation Engine serves as the heart of any size prepress production operation and can also offer automated color management for consistent color. Esko ArtiosCAD and Studio software for 3D design of displays offer dedicated tools to streamline structural design, graphic development, virtual prototyping, and manufacturing.

Esko Features Green Ox Pallet Technology in Cape Pack Software

Esko is featuring several Green Ox Pallet Technology designs in its Cape Pack and Cape Truckfill software to help thousands of global companies evaluate innovative options for maximizing truck space utilization. Green Ox corrugated pallets are unique in the global market. Globally produced and configured at the point of use, the pallets offer a viable lightweight alternative to wood that can scale across the footprint of multinational manufacturers and their suppliers. As presented in Cape Pack, one of Green Ox's most transformational features is dimension customization, which allows clients to increase the amount of truck bed space used by 530%. Together, Esko and Green Ox Pallet Technology are paving the way for global manufacturers to improve space utilization, cut transportation costs, and reduce their carbon footprint. In addition to the Green Ox Standard 48x40 pallet, Cape Pack Software v2.15, released last year, introduces to the market Green Ox's spacemaximizing: WalkIn Cooler (40x32), MiniSquare (32x32), Bike (61x36), U.S. Square (46x46) and Euro (1 meter x 1 meter) pallets.

Esko Announces Important Update of ArtiosCAD

Esko announced it is rolling out it newest release of ArtiosCAD, an important release of one of its structural design editors for packaging and displays. The updated version showcases Canvas Design which a series of new features, significantly improves the workflow for anyone designing and producing multi-component displays and packaging. The enhancements are the result of substantial customer input, eliminate the pain points customers were facing related to designing and producing multipart designs. The new Canvas File in ArtiosCAD is a master design template. A designer can create all the pieces on a single canvas and see how they interact. From that one canvas, they can now redirect those components that need graphics, separate the components based upon how they are manufactured and identify each part for reports, database searching or for integrating with a business system. ArtiosCAD maintains a unique board assignment for each part. Parts made on mixed substrates can be designed and viewed together. Unique database information is stored for each part, making them easy to identify. When parts are output, they can be done so, separately. Moreover, if a separate part file is edited, ArtiosCAD notes the change and allows it to be updated on the master Canvas File. There are many areas where ArtiosCAD streamlines a workflow. For example, it makes it easy to tie into an MIS, allowing the business system to create unique parts for inventory and costing; or helping to run a bill of materials. If a display is created, only those parts that require artwork can be sent to the graphic design department – not the entire display, eliminating any possible confusion. For manufacturing, companies are now able to separate the canvas into different parts and deliver only those pieces that require a specific manufacturing technique – for example, to a die maker or to a Kongsberg table. It’s even possible to add non-design elements such as a pallet for transport or assembly hardware to the workflow, which are then referred to as non-production parts.
