Esko launches the new Motorized Roll Feeder for higher digital cutting accuracy of soft signage at FESPA 2019

14 May 2019

Esko, a global provider of integrated hardware and software solutions for digital print professionals, will showcase its latest innovations at FESPA 2019.  

Recognising that sign and display producers today require more flexibility, efficiency and accuracy in operations, Esko will present two new hardware solutions: the new Motorised Roll Feeder for soft signage applications and the Kongsberg C Edge, the upgradable digital cutting table released earlier this year. The latest version of its integrated software range Esko Software Platform 18.1 will also be on show at booth A5-G10. 

ESKO-FESPARussell Weller, Esko Product Manager, stated: “These latest launches at FESPA demonstrate our commitment to innovation in hardware and software, enabling our customers to unlock long term production flexibility and profitability.”

The Motorised Roll Feeder is the only solution in the soft signage industry that delivers great cutting results on tensile materials from the very first cut through to the end of the roll. Eliminating inaccurate cuts on soft signage jobs due to wrinkles, stretch distortion or imperfectly rewound rolls, the new Motorised Roll Feeder incorporates an active material feed to avoid stretch by actively feeding the material to the Kongsberg C64 digital cutting table, rather than pulling it.

ESKO-FESPA2The new upgradable Kongsberg C Edge delivers high speed production capability of up to 75m/min at an acceleration of 1G, designed to keep up with the demands of today’s wide format digital print market. The table is complemented with a range of customisable fittings, including a conveyor feed system, a new Fast Tool Adapter to reduce downtime and maximise performance, a heavy-duty unit for high quality corrugated crease lines, and the CorruSpeed tool, a non-oscillating device for high quality cutting even at high production speeds.

Weller added: “At Esko, we believe in connecting from design to finish to boost our customers’ productivity and efficiency. At FESPA, we will demonstrate our latest hardware innovations backed by our comprehensive portfolio of software solutions including  ArtiosCAD 3D constructional design software, iCut Suite for sign print finishing and true shape nesting, Device Manager for job management optimization and Automation Engine, our prepress workflow automation software. Visitors to our FESPA booth will experience first hand how Esko is investing in innovation for their success.”
