Swanline takes Finishing to new levels with Esko

Swanline Paper & Board, the recently launched materials division of Swanline Print Ltd, is taking finishing productivity to new levels with a Kongsberg C24 cutting table from Esko, featuring multi-zone operation and robotic loading and unloading. The investment will join an existing Kongsberg XP digital cutting table, enabling the company’s finishing operation to keep pace with its two HP Scitex FB11000 Industrial Presses. The combined solution will enhance Swanline’s ability to provide a total service – from design to delivery – or to dovetail with existing production capabilities to help customers address market demands and broaden revenue opportunities.

Ross Griffin, Managing Director of Swanline Paper & Board, explains, “We came across this system at drupa. We were amazed by its versatility and precision in handling multiple files and its ability to quickly and efficiently cut any type of material.”

He continues, “Swanline is always at the forefront of new technology. We provide our customers with the best available on the market, which is without a doubt the most opportune way to look to the future. Our new Kongsberg C24 cutting table will fit right in with this philosophy.”

Richard Towers, Managing Director of Swanline Print Limited, adds, “At a later stage, we may also team our existing Kongsberg XP table with the new C24 table to accelerate cutting production, because the robot can be set up to serve two Kongsberg cutting tables simultaneously. This will offer us even more productivity.”
Working together, the tables will be able keep up with the existing print capacity, shorten production times and handle future HP Scitex equipment upgrades.
