The first Highcon Euclid machine will be installed at Graphica Bezalel Ltd., in Yavne, Israel in February 2012. The Euclid is the world’s first entirely digital cutting and creasing production machine for folded cartons. With jobs accepted from standard prepress software, the Euclid uses Highcon’s ‘Digital Adhesive Rule Technology’ (DART) to create the crease lines within minutes, with no need for traditional dies.
The Euclid is equipped with multiple lasers, along with new and innovative precision optics to cut cardboard sheets, delivering high quality on-demand cut and creased sheets with a format size up to 76cm X 106cm (30” X 42”). Turnaround times are cut dramatically while run lengths up to 10 000 sheets become attractive and profitable for the converter.
Graphica Bezalel is a 66-year old family converting company that provides packaging solutions for many well-known international brands. They see their key strength in their versatility and ability to print and convert a wide variety of substrates. According to Eyal Harpak, Deputy General Manager, We have been following the progress of the Highcon Euclid for a while now and are delighted to have the opportunity to put it through its paces. We look forward to exploring the features and potential of the Euclid and testing it under production conditions. We are excited by its potential to transform our customer responsiveness and increase our profitability through increased flexibility, productivity and cost-savings.
