Testimonial: How Speedscreen increased finishing capacity with super-wide Kongsberg C

April 27 2015

Speedscreen’s 30% year-on-year growth is secured with its investment in an Esko Kongsberg C digital finishing table.

 

"The true 3200mm x 3200mm table adds further to
improved work flow and productivity."
Tim Hill, Managing Director, Speedscreen, UK

 


 

The Kongsberg C64 is equipped
with a powerful 3kW router.

with large format printer

With the massive throughput of its Durst Rho 1012 large format printer, it quickly became evident that Speedscreen’s bottleneck would be finishing.

 

Tim Hill, Managing Director of Speedscreen, explains:

“We looked at a number of options. The Esko Kongsberg C64 was the only table with a full 3.2m work space.

The Kongsberg is also engineered for heavy-duty performance and includes a powerful 3kW router. It was a much better proposition than we found with other solutions in the marketplace.

And we were also very comfortable staying with an Esko solution based on our past experience.”

 


 

Software as ally to win new business

Speedscreen’s investment also included Esko ArtiosCAD structural packaging design software and i-cut Suite preflighting and workflow solution for large format printing.

 

“These software solutions help us smooth out workflow and save time in design.

In addition, we can better plan job ganging and nesting for the most economical material use.

We will also be able to further develop the design side of the business with activities such as creating outers,” states Hill.
