Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (‘Kongsberg PCS’), has unveiled a brand-new customer experience center at its headquarters in Belgium, dedicated to its MultiCam range of advanced routing and CNC cutting systems.
The world’s first diversified provider of digital finishing and CNC cutting systems has installed the flagship MultiCam Apex3R at the new demo center, to showcase one of the most advanced and versatile CNC Routers on the market.
“The Apex3R sets the standard for routing capabilities with its perfect balance between performance and precision,” said Chris Rogers, International Sales Manager with Kongsberg PCS. “As we throw the doors open to our newest demo facility – adjacent to our Kongsberg customer experience center – we wanted to demonstrate not only the power and capabilities of the MultiCam machines, but also show how they support our objective of making automation easy.”
With spindle speeds ranging from 5.5-13.4 HP, the Apex3R can cut a variety of materials including plastic, aluminum, wood, high-density foam, and composite materials. “The heavy, stress relieved, all-welded 9.5mm steel tube frame is milled in-house with parallel datums to within 25 microns, offering true perpendicular and parallel cuts,” said Chris. “This also makes the CNC machine more rigid, which reduces vibration and improves routing quality. The Operator Station interface, included as standard, ensures businesses can start routing right away and have minimal interruption in work processes, while a three-axis motion control system gives tight control over routing quality for precision and quality cutting.”
The opening of the demo center is the latest stage of Kongsberg PCS’ planned growth, further expanding the MultiCam brand into Europe following its acquisition in late 2021.
“The MultiCam CNC cutting systems open up a huge new market to Kongsberg PCS, with customers across a range of different sectors, “ said Chris, “everything from sign making to digital finishing, aerospace to automotive, hardwoods to cabinet making and even thermoform trimming to plastics fabrication.
“We are excited to use the new demo center to highlight how MultiCam supplies such innovative solutions for a multitude of industries and applications, and the Apex3R is a fantastic machine with which to start this journey,” said Chris.
