Table Mapping: Dynamic table mapping procedure provides real-time update to the exact field conditions. Precise automatic z-control during finishing means less damage to the underlay.

i-cut Vision Pro: The Kongsberg XN can be controlled by i-cut Vision Pro, the industry standard for vision-based cutting. It ensures highly efficient production along with simple and extremely accurate print-to-cut registration, even with print-distorted materials.

Tool exchange: Exchanging different tools is quick and error-free, because every insert is identified by a unique bar code. Specific tuning parameters are stored in memory to avoid expensive operator errors.

Toolheads: A set of advanced, quick-change tool heads provides unsurpassed versatility, making it easy to set up the machine to process any material for just about any application.

Sandwich steel construction: The XN series features the famous, rock-solid Kongsberg tabletop construction that will never warp or go out of level, even after decades of heavy use. Most Kongsberg cutting tables are still in operation today.

Tool inserts: Insert knife tools are available for cutting all relevant materials ranging from thin paper to synthetic sheets through heavyduty packaging and display material. The tooling selection also includes crease tools, plotting and drilling tools.

Operator safety
Included is the DynaGuard Safety System, which protects the operator and bystanders from potential machine
hazards. The movable parts of the machine (traverse, carriage) are surrounded by a set of photocell
sensors that, if activated, will immediately stop the machine and wait for the operator to resume operation.
If the end of the traverse hits a bystander the photocell beam goes out of position and operation is stopped.
