Esko has released a VariAngle tool for the Kongsberg C and XP range of digital finishing tables that enables cutting at any angle from 0o and 60o at up to 100m/min.
“VariAngle removes the need to stop production when changing tools, drastically reducing set-up time and increasing cutting speed,” said digital finishing product manager, Knut Johansen. “Fitting the new VariAngle tool makes existing Kongsberg C and XP tables completely self-sufficient and capable of delivering most any creative design.
“Importantly, as well as delivering excellent cut quality at the highest possible speeds, the tool behavior is defined from within the Esko ArtiosCAD structural design software, therefore no operator input is required at the cutting table itself so productivity is boosted by a further 25 per cent.
“The unique combination of the new tool and the supporting functionality in ArtiosCAD delivers true design freedom. Converters can make 60 degree V-notch cuts enabling the making of triangular pillars. It can also cut angled curves, dependent on radius size.”
