The exceptionally robust Esko Kongsberg XP24 cutting and creasing table at Pyramid is designed for cutting extremely strong corrugated board. It can be run 24/7 for efficient short run production.

There is no need to wait for a die. In addition, a wide range of very versatile tools are available offering a complete packaging, signage and display (POP) solution with a single machine.

The integration with the CAD editor allows us to run jobs from a single unit to full scale production with as many as a thousand units in a day. The XP’s production power and quick change of tools ensures on time delivery, every time, even for complex jobs.”
