Kongsberg X46 for Smurfit Kappa Abercarn

Already known as the ‘Home of Big Box’, Smurfit Kappa Abercarn has recently installed a 4.8m Kongsberg X46 cutting table.

In conjunction with Abercarn’s in-house compression tester, the addition of the new large format cutting table will help to develop new XXL packaging designs and boost responsiveness to customer needs and requirements. Installation of the Kongsberg X46 means that Smurfit Kappa Abercarn can now produce the biggest ‘one piece’ samples within the Smurfit Kappa UK business. Additionally, the cutitng table helps to demonstrate Abercarn’s capability to manufacture maximum blank sizes of up to 10sqm in a single piece or up to 22sqm in two pieces.
