Arrow Digital installs Kongsberg X24 Edge at Kuldip Enterprise
New Delhi-based Kuldip Enterprise recently installed a Kongsberg X24 Edge Production finisher, supplied by Arrow Digital, authorised distributor of the finishing machine in India. Kuldip Enterprises is a leading manufacturer of sign and display graphics, providing all types of signage applications and fabrications to various leading brands.
Harbhajan Singh, Managing Director of Kuldip Enterprise said, “We are in this industry for more than four decades. We have been working with many corporate brands for years. We have high-speed printers but the bottleneck has always been with finishing.” He added, “Now, with jobs that have strict deadlines, your first reaction is to get the fastest printer, and the faster you produce finishing has to catch up, here starts the issue, your floor is flooded with printed jobs but the finishing is done manually or outsourced. When outsourcing, you cannot control quality, accuracy or time limits, you are at the mercy of others. This made our decision firm to go for a finisher. We researched and reviewed many finishers in the market but Kongsberg was way ahead with its performance and speed and the best part is you can upgrade it on your floor as per future needs.”
On Kongsberg, Samir Patel, MD & CEO, Arrow Digital, said the system offers versatility for a wide range of cutting applications. “Whether your focus is on 2D or 3D or packaging, signage or displays with just about any material from vinyl, paper board, textiles to wood, Kongsberg is perfect for any job or application. It’s built like a tank, robust and accurate,” he added.
Kongsberg features the most famous, rock-solid tabletop construction that will never warp or go out of level, even after decades of heavy use. The rack-and-pinion drive system provides speed, durability and strength driving through dense/thick materials with ease. Kongsberg X tables can be configured for milling applications ranging from sporadic, light-duty routing to lengthy jobs working with heavy-duty materials — all with record-breaking productivity.
Samir continued to add, “The i-cut production console of Kongsberg X24 Edge offers users powerful functionality for signage, display, and packaging production. iPC ensures highly efficient production along with extremely accurate print-to-cut registration. The machine’s state-of-the-art user interface offers improved usability with its personalised job management operator. According to Harbhajan, adding Kongsberg is like giving a cushion to your production floor. Adding a finisher gives us the ability to be more creative and think out of the box without any constrain of additional outsourcing costs or manual intervention.
Harbhajan conclusively said that Kongsberg X24 Edge is an extremely robust machine that would last well into the future and one that would provide the ability to upgrade tooling options as they grow the business into different markets. He emphasised, “Knowing well that Arrow Digital is supporting this platform gives us a huge sense of comfort as they are always creating innovative applications with print and cut in their demo centre, helping our operators with hands on training anytime.” Kuldip Enterprise has been associated with Arrow Digital since they first installed a Vvtek many years ago.
