Highcon has introduced the Euclid, a revolutionary machine which uses precision laser optics and polymer technologies to transform cutting and creasing from an analogue to a digital workflow, dramatically streamlining the finishing process.
Highcon is a young company with a clear focus and understanding of the folding carton packaging market, a defined vision, and an innovative product that will eliminate the need for conventional dies and herald the arrival of a new Direct-to-Pack market.
‘Over the past two decades we have witnessed key areas of the supply chain becoming digital, but packaging finishing has remained analogue, said Aviv Ratzman, Highcons CEO. Converters and their customers have been unable to benefit from the speed and flexibility that digital solutions could provide to finishing. But this is about to change.
The Highcon digital converting solution dramatically increases speed to market, eliminates costly production steps and reduces the carbon footprint of packaging production. Moreover, the implementation of this new technology will drive numerous new packaging opportunities for converters, packaging printers and brand owners.
Chris Baker, Highcon VP Sales and Business Development, said, We have been developing our product with input and advice from a number of top converters around the world to ensure we meet the market needs. We are confident that this technology will change the face of packaging finishing.
The Highcon Euclid will be formally launched and demonstrated on the companys stand at drupa 2012, in Düsseldorf, Germany.
