The team at Auto Trim Design has nicknamed its new Kongsberg C64 digital cutting table ‘The Beast.’
The Auto Trim facility in Concord, Ont., was looking to increase capacity and expand its product portfolio. “We recognized a need to deliver more jobs faster and were exploring additional avenues of revenue by offering new services to customers, such as packaging products,” said Kaleb Hosie, vice-president of Auto Trim Design Inc. “We wanted to invest in new equipment that would help us boost productivity and diversify our offering, and the digital finishing system from Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems has more than delivered.”
Auto Trim installed the Kongsberg C64 cutting table, together with Dual Heavy Duty Unit, 3kw router, innovative Kongsberg CorruSpeed tool and Fast Tool Adapter, with an automated conveyor and roll-off unit completing the setup.
Vince Tuccitto, Kongsberg precision cutting systems territory sales manager for Eastern Canada, said the combination of the Kongsberg C64 and conveyor roll-off unit means the Auto Trim team have eliminated the chance of damaging material while it is moving along or from the cutting table.
“Thanks to its automation, the C64 registers and cuts quickly, and then deposits material on the conveyor with perfect alignment to ensure consistent production with the next step in the workflow,” he said. “With state-of-the-art engineering and aerospace technology, the Kongsberg C Series is renowned for delivering the very highest levels of performance,” he added. “The C64 combines an aluminum composite tabletop, a rack and pinion drive system and dynamic table mapping for optimum results.”
The addition of the Dual Heavy Duty Unit makes it possible to cut, crease and perforate a single job without the need to change tools, delivering the productivity speed Auto Trim needs, without any compromise on accuracy.
