ProPrint Adds Fourth Kongsberg Solution to Toronto Setup, with New Fully Automated Digital Finishing System

Packaging and in-store retail POS specialist ProPrint Services (ProPrint) has added a fourth Kongsberg cutting table to its production facilities, with the recent installation of a new fully automated end-to-end digital finishing solution from Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (Kongsberg PCS).

To meet growing customer demand, the company – which has for more than 30 years produced consumer and trade packaging boxes and purpose-built point of sale displays – has invested in the Kongsberg C64 Digital Finishing Table with Feeder and Stacker at its plant in Scarborough, Toronto.

“Speed to market is key in our industry, and after purchasing a new high performance wide format printer, we needed a cutting system that could keep up,” said Richard Krakower, CEO, ProPrint. “With seamless and efficient production, the Kongsberg is the best on the market. We know this is the case because this is now our fourth Kongsberg - we have one dedicated to our design team and now this is our third for the production team.”

The new digital finishing solution is reportedly complemented by the Kongsberg Feeder and Stacker, delivering a fully automated, pallet-to-pallet solution for improved efficiency, productivity and unerring accuracy.

“The C64 assures ProPrint the highest levels of performance,” said Vince Tuccitto, territory sales manager, eastern Canada, Kongsberg PCS. “With its state-of-the-art engineering and aerospace technology, it is designed to deliver the greatest cutting accuracy and consistency.”

“Productivity is maximized with the automated Feeder and Stacker, with its impressive stack height and quick automatic load cycles making short run production of a wide variety of materials simple. The underside camera scans each sheet from below, on the print side, automatically locating the registration marks, barcodes and the corner of the sheet,” he added. “This can save the operator as much as thirty minutes on each set up, boosting productivity without compromising on quality.”
