American firm Curt G. Joa introduces ESC-8 technology

October 21, 2021 - United States Of America

Curt G. Joa, Inc has introduced its new, patent-pending ESC-8 technology, the latest innovation in product size change flexibility. It increases product and insert combination capabilities, electronic size change capabilities, and speed. The technology can be integrated into existing machines, regardless of the original manufacturer, with minimal downtime.

The ESC-8 can help users save annually on material costs and replacement size change hardware, the company said in a media release.

The ESC-8 technology enhances and simplifies product performance features to improve product quality. The product insert is handed-off only once when placed onto the chassis web, eliminating unnecessary waste. Adhesive is applied all the way up to the end of the product insert, minimising risk of loose ends. Adhesive is also applied directly to the insert web, greatly reducing risk of exposed adhesive on the product insert.

“Configure nearly endless combinations of insert length and width and chassis pitch at high speed with the push of a button. ESC-8 technology offers a wide range of chassis product pitches, electronic chassis pitch change, toolless insert pitch change, and full machine speeds on all sizes,” the release said.

Curt G. Joa has also unveiled its new logo that made its first public appearance at the industry's premiere tradeshow – INDEX - in Geneva, Switzerland. The new, iconic logo retains the essence of the brand and its long history of quality while setting the stage for JOA’s confident transition into the future with a streamlined design for improved functionality in digital environments, the company said.
