Global Imaging Adds Kongsberg Digital Finishing Solution Ontario, Canada based Global Imaging has added a Kongsberg digital finishing solution as part of its ongoing commitment to making its wildest creative ideas a reality. The designer, printer and manufacturer of bespoke Point- of-Purchase displays has invested in a new Kongsberg C64 table complete with automated board feeder and stacker at its facility in Mississauga, Ontario. “At Global Imaging, we are embracing the fact that ad- vances in technology and materials mean that the only limiting factor to creativity is how far your own imagination can take you,” said Gerald Maister, Vice President of Glob- al Imaging. “The digital revolution has led to a creative revolution, giving us the freedom to work in large scale formats even for one-off custom orders. With this latest in- vestment, we are increasing our own capabilities to deliver against the most creative designs and fulfill the imagina- tion potential of our designers and customers.” With Global Imaging servicing a growing number of customers and handling more projects, Maister said the investment would also help increase throughput speed and boost productivity at the production stage. “Our in-house design team prides itself on delivering the impactful displays our customers want, and we be- lieve their imagination deserves an equally imaginative approach to digital printing and display fabrication,” said Maister. “The C64 enables us to deliver the best finish to make our customers’ visions a reality, while the invest- ment in the automated feeder stacker ensures that we can achieve more in less time. The underside camera alone, which takes away the manual processes of checking each sheet and calculating registration marks, will save us up to 30 minutes on each job.” Global Imaging took advantage of the wide array of specialist tooling available for the C64, adding the Kongs- berg High Frequency Vibracut Knife Tool, which, with its powerful motor, is ideal for cutting heavily recycled board at efficient speeds, as well as the Rigid Material Knife Tool that excels at everything from lightweight detailed work to cutting heavy rigid board like plastic foamed PVC 3 mm. “With its state-of-the-art engineering, the C64 com- bines a steel tabletop with aluminium honeycomb core and dynamic table mapping to deliver the greatest cutting accuracy and consistency,” said Vince Tuccitto, Kongsberg PCS Territory Sales Manager for eastern Canada. “The new table is also served by the board feeder and stack- er that enables Global Imaging to significantly increase its productivity. With its stack height and quick automatic load cycles, it is the optimal solution for short run production of a wide variety of materials. The Underside Camera scans each sheet from below, on the print side, and automatical- ly locates the registration marks, barcodes and the corner of the sheet. This saves anything from twenty to thirty min- utes on each set up, further boosting productivity.”
