SG360° Bolsters Production With Konsberg XE Cutting/Creasing Table
WHEELING, Ill.—July 8, 2015—SG360º has added the Kongsberg XE digital cutting and creasing table to its lineup of CAD technologies. The Kongsberg allows SG360º to provide customers a faster and more flexible solution for sample production.
“We now have the capability to instantly bring our customers’ designs to life for immediate review,” said Anthony Ferruzza, SG360º senior vice president and general manager, Gilman Facility. “The opportunity to provide on-site physical and art adjustments to projects results in meeting our customers’ demand for quick turnaround projects.”
The new system can process a wide range of precise creasing, diecut and structured folding options that can be immediately tested for creative direct mail pieces. The technology also provides an excellent solution for the production of varnish blankets for offset printing. Since the machine can produce partial cuts with exact depths, along with perfect registration for the printing press, it is cost-efficient for the preparation of spot varnishing blankets for commercial print work and folded pieces of various stocks and materials.
SG360º can control the entire workflow to process sample design data for output on a cutting table, as well as on printing plates or digital presses. Structural design and one-up editing, sheet preparation with repetitions and marks, workflow automation, screening and color management, can all be controlled at SG360º’s production and design CAD stations through Kongsberg’s integrated suite of packaging software.
SG360º clients are some of the nation’s most well-known luxury/clothing retailers, big box, food, electronic and home/hardware retailers. The company is involved in almost every industry–from finance to healthcare to automotive and other service industries, including some of the world’s largest advertising agencies.
