Embamat is First to Install Kongsberg C66 with Feeder and Stacker
One of Spain’s leading industrial packaging manufacturers has become the first in the world to install the state-of-the-art Kongsberg C66 with the Kongsberg Feeder & Stacker, automating the manufacture of its protective foams and packaging.
Embamat has installed the largest in the Kongsberg C series of digital finishing tables, complete with the Kongsberg Automate board feeder and stacker, at its Barcelona facility. The acquisition is part of a strategic plan for significant investment in technology, which will automate the plant and lead it towards Industry 4.0, improving productivity and efficiency in order to continue offering the highest quality and best service to its customers.
“We were looking for a digital finishing table that was both strong enough to handle the toughest of jobs and that could consistently deliver the highest quality without compromising on speed,” said Esteve Amat, general manager Embamat. “With its build quality and reliability, the Kongsberg C66 was the right choice, and the combination of high-speed cutting with the automated board feeding ensured we were able to increase our overall production capacity.”
“As a producer of industrial packaging, Embamat needed a digital finishing table that was robust enough to handle the incredibly strong and thick materials used in their manufacture,” said Amadeu Maurel, territory sales manager, Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems. “With the Kongsberg C66, they benefit not only from the rock-solid engineering and aerospace technology which has earned the C series its reputation, but also from the durability and reliability of an aluminum composite tabletop, a rack and pinion drive system and unrivalled cutting accuracy and consistency.”
“The board feeder and stacker is a pallet-to-pallet solution that enables Embamat to increase productivity,” added Amadeu. “With its stack height of 915 millimeters/36 inch and quick automatic load cycles, it is the optimal solution for short run production on all typical packaging and display materials. Importantly, it can easily cope with the heavy-duty materials Embamat uses in its packaging.”
