The team at Auto Trim Design (Concord, Ontario), a leading Canadian specialist in signage and vehicle wrap design and production, has nicknamed its recently installed Kongsberg C64 Digital Cutting Table “The Beast” after being impressed by its combination of speed and power. As part of a 47-member shop focused on delivering high quality signage and wrap products across Canada and the U.S., Auto Trim was looking to increase capacity and expand its product portfolio. “We recognized a need to deliver more jobs faster and were exploring additional avenues of revenue by offering new services to customers, such as packaging products,” said Vice President Kaleb Hosie. “We wanted to invest in new equipment that would help us boost productivity and diversify our offerings, and the digital finishing system from Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems has more than delivered.”
Auto Trim installed the Kongsberg C64, together with a Dual Heavy Duty Unit, 3kw Router, Kongsberg CorruSpeed Tool, and Fast Tool Adapter, plus an automated conveyor and roll-off unit that completed the overall installation. “For more than 35 years, our success has been earned by delivering to high standards in time-sensitive environments with precision, accuracy and care,” Hosie added. “Our customers trust us to create, design and deliver signage and vehicle wraps that are perfect and consistent. It’s therefore hugely important to us that whatever equipment we use maintains these high standards, while also enabling us to meet the growing demands of our customers. The Kongsberg C64 not only delivers the greatest levels of cutting accuracy and consistency, but the automation, Dual Heavy Duty Unit and Fast Tool Adapter means we can get through the toughest jobs quicker than ever.
Vince Tuccitto, Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems Territory Sales Manager for Eastern Canada, said the combination of the Kongsberg C64 and Conveyor Roll-Off Unit means the Auto Trim team has eliminated the chance of damaging material while it’s moving along or from the cutting table. “Thanks to its automation, the C64 registers and cuts quickly, and then deposits material on the conveyor with perfect alignment to ensure consistent production with the next step in the workflow,” he said. “The C64 combines an aluminum composite tabletop, a rack-and-pinion drive system and dynamic table mapping for optimum results.” The addition of the Dual Heavy Duty Unit makes it possible to cut, crease and perforate a single job without the need to change tools, delivering the productivity speed that Auto Trim needs without compromising accuracy.
