Achieving ‘Ultimate’ success with latest product

The newly launched Kongsberg Ultimate is already living up to its name, with the new cutting platform proving the ultimate success – smashing sales targets even before its global debut at drupa.

Unveiled at a launch event at the end of last year, the new digital cutting table from Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems was only made commercially available in 2024 yet has already surpassed its H1 sales target after securing a raft of customer orders.

“The response to the Ultimate has been incredible across the industry,” said Stuart Fox, President and CEO, Kongsberg PCS. “We were confident that with its productivity, precision, and safety, we had created a machine that would set a new standard and transform the corrugated production industry. Following our European and North American launch event, we expected the machine’s debut on the global at stage at drupa to be the true launchpad for sales. The fact that so many orders have already been secured in just a few short months is not only vindication of our confidence but is also a testament to the efforts of our R&D team in developing this fantastic new solution.”

Fox continued, “The response following a number of individual demos and trials has been great. As soon as customers see it in action, they recognise how the Ultimate sets a new benchmark. Perhaps more importantly for them, they can also see how it can benefit and enhance their own operations and provide them with a significant competitive advantage. I am thrilled that the machine has clearly lived up to the hype in the eyes of customers who have already recognised this for the true game-changer that it is. The reaching – and passing – of our sales target for this new machine is the ultimate endorsement of our faith in the fact that it will help businesses elevate their operations for many years to come.”
