Kongsberg VariAngle Unit tool: V-notch cutting redefined

The new and unique VariAngle Unit is a V-notch cutting tool that cuts at any angle between 0° and 60°.

  • V-notch cutting with different angles no longer needs operator intervention. It’s a huge time saver.
  • Unlocks new creative potential for designers of POP displays.
  • Minimized operator handling eliminates safety issues.

No need to switch tools: huge time saver!

The VariAngle is a unique tool only offered by Esko. It automatically changes the cutting angle of the knife in increments of 0,5 degrees. The cutting lines can be defined in the structural design file or directly in iPC, the Kongsberg table’s front-end software.

With conventional V-notch solutions, you have to either stop the production to change tools or blade angle. The new VariAngle lets you run the cutting table without the need of interventions during the production.

The angle-range offered by the VariAngle Unit enables both straight-cuts (0°) and V-notch with one and the same tool.

This increases the OEE (Overall Equipment Effectiveness) by at least 25% and eliminates the need for the operator to handle sharp cutting blades.

Testimonial

The VariAngle tool is really a productivity booster, we now run both straight cuts (0 degrees) and V-notch folding lines without switching tools. The VariAngle tool switches between all angles from 0 to 60 degrees seamlessly. We are now able to offer our customers display designs that are not possible with yesterday's technology.

Materials & angles

Materials & angles

The VariAngle tool works with fluted core board, honeycomb board, soft foam board and triple wall corrugated. It can straight cut materials with a thickness up to 30mm and V-notch up to 20mm (60-degree V-notch up to 16mm).

Testimonial

With the VariAngle Unit we have got a solution that gives us more than 25% increased productivity on our Kongsberg C cutting board. Since we can now cut both straight cuts (0 degrees) and 45 degrees V-notch lines without using vibrating knife or switching tools we also achieve a finer cut, as well as less noise and dust from the cutting process.

Supported by ArtiosCAD: unlocking new designs!

ArtiosCAD 20 supports a generic V-notch line type where V-notch cut, or V-notch crease angles can be defined between 0° and 60°. degrees. The angle definitions are supported and transferred to all Esko software (Studio, iPC).

This gives designers of POP displays and packaging new possibilities to design.
