Design and print specialist Print Studio One has invested in the latest digital finishing technology from Kongsberg Precision Cutting Systems (‘Kongsberg PCS’) to boost production capacity and expand its product offering.

The Manitoba, Canada-based business, alongside sister company Three-Six North Marketing, has installed a new Kongsberg X24 Edge cutting table and a range of advanced tooling in order to drive throughput and meet increasing demand at its facility in Steinbach.

“Print Studio One and Three-Six North Marketing partner with clients to build their brands across physical and digital platforms, ultimately connecting people to their products and services,” said Tim Penner, Partner – Operations. Tim, together with brother Matt, runs the family business first acquired by their parents Dave and Lois nearly 20 years ago.

“On the production side, our expertise is in print, signage and vehicle decals, with digital services and design also being developed and delivered under one roof,” said Tim. “As we continue to increase our offering, for example with the introduction of new packaging products, we recognized we needed to cut faster without compromising on quality or accuracy - and that’s what led us to the Kongsberg table.”

Vince Tuccitto, Kongsberg PCS Territory Sales Manager for Eastern Canada, said that with the X24 Edge, Print Studio One has acquired a combination of tried and tested Kongsberg productivity, flexibility and best-in-class reliability.

“The Kongsberg X24 Edge can easily handle the full spectrum of display, signage and packaging materials from kiss cutting vinyl through to heavy duty milling,” said Vince. “There is no sacrifice on machine configuration with all the X-Series options available, and perhaps most importantly the X Edge can evolve to keep pace with the changing demands of Print Studio One.

“Packed with specialty tools, the cutting table handles a wide range of applications, offering speed, power and the flexibility to add new tools for new materials, new applications, or more capacity,” said Vince. “This means that a business can add volume and enter new market segments – just as Print Studio One has done.”

The new Kongsberg X24 has been fitted out with a 3KW router and an assortment of tool options, including vinyl kiss cutting tooling and packaging and creasing tools. “For a business like ours, the ability to deliver quality results in a faster time is crucial – quality is one of our core values, it’s something our clients have come to expect from us,” said Tim Penner. “The ease of operation plays into that, and we have enjoyed significant overall efficiency and productivity gains.

“Having the ability to turn around a wider array of jobs in a quicker time has allowed us to not only expand our offering, but also to attract new opportunities by being able to think outside the box,” he said. “We believe all organizations should have access to first class, full-service marketing support and that business is about more than just making a profit - it’s an opportunity to make a difference. The Kongsberg X24 will allow our business to continue to make a difference in the world.”
