Kongsberg Cutting System Awarded

Open to all PRINTING United Alliance supplier members, the Pinnacle Product Award competition evaluates products that will be available for sale in 2024.

The Kongsberg Ultimate cutting system has received a PRINTING United Alliance 2024 Pinnacle Product Award. Launched by Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (Kongsberg PCS) just six months ago, the new Kongsberg Ultimate has been honoured in the lasers/routers/cutters (1.2 x 2.4m or larger) category after the esteemed panel of judges from across the printing industry evaluated the annual contest’s 160+ entries.

‘We always believed the Ultimate would raise the bar and set new standards in corrugated production,’ said Stuart Fox, President and CEO of Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems. ‘Following our recent EDP Award for Best Wide Format Cutting Solution at drupa, receiving the Pinnacle Product Award from PRINTING United Alliance further underscores the technical innovation and exceptional work of the entire Kongsberg team in developing and launching the Ultimate.’

‘With global demand pushing corrugated converters to produce faster, safer and more efficiently, the Kongsberg Ultimate is a quantum leap in technology,’ said Fox. ‘Showcasing it worldwide, customers are impressed by its acceleration rate of up to 2.74G and cutting speed of 168 metres per minute, meeting the unique challenges of high-volume, multi-batch production.’

‘The Kongsberg Ultimate is engineered for precision and built for productivity,’ said Fox. ‘This game-changing digital cutting platform offers unparalleled productivity, precision and safety. It maximises efficiency and quality in corrugated operations, providing converters with a significant competitive advantage and transforming the corrugated production industry.’

The Kongsberg Ultimate’s performance stems from key technical innovations. The new Kongsberg PrecisionDrive™ system, featuring a high-torque motor with a rack and pinion setup, enables unmatched acceleration and cutting speeds. Its traverse, crafted from a single filament of carbon, ensures strength and minimal bending, even under 50kg downforce. Safety is enhanced by the Kongsberg SmartZone™ dual-zone safety system, which monitors the table’s surroundings, slowing it down when the operator is near and pausing it when even closer.
