Kongsberg C: The new dimension for digital finishing

Your world has changed. It’s a wide format world with higher volumes and faster turnaround times on a vast selection of materials.
It’s time for a digital finishing solution that fits today’s digital production requirements without compromising on size, versatility or finishing quality. The Kongsberg C series is the first multifunction super-wide digital finisher for signage, display and packaging applications.

The new Kongsberg C table is designed to keep up with the faster, wider printers of today and tomorrow. Exceeding the standards in versatility, precision and productivity, it has everything that Kongsberg tables are noted for, and more. It is the very first multifunction super-wide digital finisher for signage, display and packaging applications.


Kongsberg C stands for:

  • Capability: the Kongsberg C processes the widest variety of materials with an extensive range of applications. Paper, textiles, corrugated board up to triple-wall, honeycomb or fluted core board, plastics, aluminum composites, and more. The Kongsberg C series handles them all with ease.
  • Capacity: it has the highest throughput of any super-wide digital finisher, period. The Kongsberg C series is the only super-wide finisher to offer a 3kW continuous duty high-performance milling unit.
  • Consistency: the Kongsberg C series delivers the same performance every time, even on the most demanding materials or for the most complex jobs.
  • Choice: there’s no need any more to choose between size and productivity. The Kongsberg C offers both simultaneously; eliminating the need to own dedicated digital finishers for different applications.
  • Complete: only Esko offers a full solution consisting of hardware, software, bits & blades, and services. The Kongsberg C series brings unmatched versatility with four “power” tool units and a full assortment “speed” tools. The table can be upgraded to fit your production needs as your business grows with additional tooling, a conveyer feed system, roll feeder unit, and more.

Kongsberg C - Carbon composite traverse

Carbon composite traverse

The innovative carbon fiber traverse of 3,2 meters makes the Kongsberg C uniquely equipped for high speeds and fast acceleration.

Its rigid quality makes it possible to maintain a consistent accuracy on all materials. It also minimizes deflection when carrying heavy tooling or creasing with high down-force.

Kongsberg C - High powered 3kW milling

High powered 3kW milling

The Kongsberg C tables can be configured for milling applications ranging from sporadic, light-duty routing to lengthy jobs working with heavy-duty materials – all with record breaking productivity.

The Kongsberg C is the only super-wide finisher with a 3kW continuous duty High-Performance Milling Unit.

Kongsberg C - Down force for creasing

Down force for creasing

The Heavy Duty Tool Unit offers 500N (110lbs) of down force, sufficient to crease even the most challenging materials at large diameter creasing dimensions (150mm).

Kobgsberg C - Tool calibration

Tool calibration

Tool, bit or blade exchange is fast and effortless thanks to the integrated tool tip height sensor. It accurately and automatically calibrates the working depth for different tools and greatly contributes to simple operation.

Kongsberg C - Widest range of tools for all applications and all substrates

Widest range of tools for all applications and all substrates

A complete set of advanced, quick change tool heads provides versatility, making it easy to set up the cutting table to process any material.

Kongsberg C - Table mapping

Table mapping

The dynamic table mapping procedure provides a real-time update to the exact field conditions. The precise automatic z-control during cutting and routing, using table-top mapping, guarantees unsurpassed finishing quality.

Kongsberg C - Ergonomic design

Ergonomic design

The workstation is designed with the focus on operator safety and ease of use. It comes standard with an integrated joystick and operator panel. The workstation can be mounted left, right and in the machine front, when no conveyor feed option is installed.

Kongsberg C - Rack-and-pinion drive system

Rack-and-pinion drive system

The rack-and-pinion drive system provides speed, durability and the brutal power required to drive through dense, thick materials.

The system offers great dynamic repeatability at heavy workloads.

Kongsberg C - Auxiliary control panel

Auxiliary control panel

An additional control panel at the end of the traverse offers easy access for the operator, speeding up production.

Kongsberg C - Roll feeder

Roll feeder

The Kongsberg C can be outfitted with a wide-format roll feeder to support heavy-duty rolls of materials like textile, vinyl ... up to 3330mm (131 inch) wide.

Kongsberg C - Tool Wagon

Tool wagon

The convenient tooling cart makes changing blades, bits and tool inserts very straightforward.

Powerful software integration

i-cut Production Console

i-cut Production Console is the next generation front-end for efficient operation of Kongsberg cutting tables.

The intuitive, completely redesigned, user interface enables straightforward and efficient operation. The improved front-end allows operators to get the most out of the Kongsberg tables while optimizing day to day production.

i-cut Suite: the power to optimize large-format production

Eliminate errors, save time and reduce waste with i-cut Suite, the industry standard design-to-print-to-cut workflow.
i-cut Suite standardizes the way graphical files are sent to the printer and digital finisher. You save time and labor, reduce material waste, better utilize your printer, create the most accurate and efficient cutting paths for your Kongsberg table, and create great quality output — every time. Read more!

  • i-cut Preflight handles efficient preflighting and editing of incoming files, ensuring that jobs will RIP and print correctly. If problems are found in the file, i-cut Preflight can make corrections working directly within the PDF file.
  • i-cut Layout interactively builds and edits sheet layouts, ensuring that jobs make the optimum use of the substrate through intelligent true shape nesting and tiling. Customers will enjoy the benefits of the optimized print sheet layout for odd shaped designs with material savings often running in excess of 20%.
  • i-cut Automate ties the pieces of the i-cut Suite together, and automates the entire prepress production process. Users can build dynamic workflows that automate repetitive prepress tasks, thereby enhancing productivity, reducing operator intervention and errors, and saving valuable time, money and materials in the production process.
  • i-cut Vision Pro assures the die-less cutting contours match the printed images. With graphic printing distortion can occur where the printed graphics and the die line may not match, causing unacceptable results. i-cut Vision Pro perfectly registers the actual printed result to the digital die line every time.
