Streamline your production with automation
There are multiple options in iPC for Kongsberg’s various automation solutions, including, Feeder & Stacker, Robotic Material Handler and Motorized Roll Feed production.
iPC also handles the MultiZone production: the surface of the Kongsberg table is divided into two zones or work areas. This allows production in one zone, while the operator offloads the finished jobs and put on new material in the other zones, with a full automatic vacuum control.
The operator can use the back of the cutting table in combination with the automatic conveyor feed to work in a semi-automatic way to feed sheets onto the table (manual conveyor feed). After each job iPC will command to feed one or more sheet lengths and repeat cutting of the same or different jobs. This can also be done in combination with QR code production.
iPC takes care of the production of jobs longer than the cutting table, typically banners. The job is split into several parts with the conveyor feed between each part. iPC uses the camera to identify registration marks so it can compensate for stretch or shrink in the material itself, for distortion during printing and for inaccurate conveyor feed.
