Scodix and Highcon highlighted new digital technologies that will enable folding carton packaging converters to differentiate themselves. HP, Highcon and Scodix will further illustrate the importance they place on the move towards digital packaging production at Labelexpo in Brussels which was held from 24-27 September this year.
Highcon and Scodix appeared on the HP booth, opposite the newly introduced HP Indigo 30000 Digital Press, where they demonstrated the benefits of digital print enhancement and digital cutting and creasing to the process. Highcon presented the latest sample packages, including intricate cutout designs, printed on HP Indigo presses, enhanced on the Scodix and digitally cut and creased by the Highcon Euclid.
Live demos on the Highcon Euclid and the Scodix were made at the Plantin bvba demo centre, 15 minutes away from the Label Expo venue, with shuttle buses arranged for interested visitors.
Aviv Ratzman, CEO and Co-founder of Highcon said, There is a need to provide added value to brand owners and to run away from price competition. Value can be created by meeting the demand for better shelf appearance, shorter runs, versioning, private label, reduced inventory and sustainability. All of these demands are supported by HP Indigo Digital Presses, Scodix digital enhancements and Highcon cutting and creasing and will be an important part of our joint vision of transforming the way cartons are converted.
Scodix recently introduced the new Scodix Ultra supporting high quality folding carton packaging converters. Kobi Bar, CEO and Co-founder of Scodix explains, We are looking forward to demonstrating the capabilities of our digital enhancement presses which will be presented on our stand and at the demos at Plantin.
The added value we offer has already been received enthusiastically by digital printers worldwide, especially the newly launched Scodix Ultra. We can now offer the same Scodix clear advantage to folding carton converters.
