Pamex 2024: Kongsberg to exhibit for the first time

As the market sees a move towards short runs in direct response to several recent trends, such as the steep rise in online sales and new entrepreneurial startups needing shorter supplies of boxes for their product, during Pamex 2024, the Kongsberg PCS team will showcase how the company’s flexible Kongsberg X20 cutting system makes complex production easy.

Rafiq Shaikh, sales and service leader for Kongsberg PCS, said, “The increase in popularity of shorter runs, where boxes can be produced and delivered only as sales demand, together with the increasing number of product variants, also means that in some cases single run length volumes have reduced from ten thousand to just a thousand or fewer. The Kongsberg X series offers the desired versatility to meet these current and upcoming demands, safeguarding a business’s investment and preparing it for the future.”

The X20 evolves with the needs of the company and offers the necessary flexibility for cutting a wide range of materials. Shaikh said the display and demos will highlight the versatility of the Kongsberg X20, cutting more materials with fewer, but specialist, tools, which helps reduce stop time for greater efficiency and productivity. 

This is the first time the company will exhibit at Pamex and will organise demos of the Kongsberg X20.

“This has been an incredibly exciting last 12 months for us, growing as a business and introducing the new Kongsberg Ultimate, and we look forward to using this global platform to showcase innovations and present our groundbreaking technologies,” Shaikh said, adding, “We continue to enjoy significant success across the region, and in 2023, we proudly celebrated our 200th installation in India, coincidentally with a Kongsberg X20 machine.”
