Highcon presents Euclid IIIC, its digital slitting and creasing technology applied in the market of corrugated paperboard. This innovative machine expands the range of the 3rd generation of cutting and creasing machines in the world from corrugated and grooved substrates from 1mm to 3mm / 40-120 points.
Machine Highcon Euclid IIIC has been working with corrugated cardboard in LxBxH (Switzerland) since the end of 2015 and is already commercially available on the market.
Silvano Gauch, President of LxBxH comments: “We have been working with Highcon's digital slitting and creasing technology to produce short runs, high quality bundles, on demand for our customers. The possibility of producing small and medium batches "just-in-time" with a small upfront investment, allows our customers to order what they really need ".
Aviv-Ratzman, CEO and co-founder of Highcon, added: "We realized the market potential of corrugated cardboard in B1 and B2 (42 ”and 28 ″) formats and we are motivated by the success that LxBxH has had in this market. The tests that have been carried out, comparing the boxes produced digitally with the conventional ones, have shown that the boxes produced, with the same substrate, in the Euclid are stronger than those produced in the conventional machines. This provides the opportunity to achieve the same strength with less material use and, as a result, lower costs. The potential to add lamination and high-quality printing also opens an expectation for packaging that is both visually and structurally effective. ".
The integration between digital cutting and creasing and online orders fit the industry trend towards package size optimization to reduce over-packaging and transportation costs.
The Euclid IIIC from Highcon It not only saves on the production and storage of die cutting molds, but also adds the flexibility of digital technology that allows JIT production, short runs, custom perforations with cleaner edges and easier openings, and variable data engraving for personalization or adaptation down to the serial number level. The Euclid IIIC can handle flute-B, NFGE, laminates and single wall from 1mm to 3mm / 40-120 points.
Converters in the corrugated industry interested in knowing and seeing digital cutting and creasing technology for this application are invited to attend a Highcon VIP event What will be celebrated in LxBxH the next April 16, 2018.
