TOKYO, JAPAN, AND YAVNE, ISRAEL | Komori and Highcon report the formation of a strategic partnership in which Komori will be selling and supporting the Highcon Euclid digital cutting and creasing solutions in the Japanese market. 

The Highcon Euclid

This partnership is said to be a key step in Komori’s strategy to provide comprehensive solutions to its customers, covering both analog and digital workflows and spanning printing and finishing alike. The first Highcon Euclid machine in Japan was installed at Komori’s Graphic Technology Center at Tsukuba, in time for the Komori Open House in early February.

Companies say that by offering the Highcon Euclid, Komori will provide customers with a solution that removes bottlenecks in the postpress process. Moreover, the Highcon Euclid II+ can perform the most intricate cutouts, deliver production samples for test marketing, and produce packaging for customers that simply could not be done conventionally.

Komori says it will offer the UV inkjet digital printing machine (Impremia IS29) and the Highcon Euclid digital cutting and creasing system to allow their customers to grow their business by adding value.

Eiji Kajita, operation officer and global sales and service group, group general manager of Komori, says, “We believe that concluding the agreement with Highcon is an important step in Komori’s business target of being a PESP [Print Engineering Service Provider]. We are encouraging our customers’ success by providing a variety of solutions to resolve their problems with partner companies from all over the world. The combination of Highcon’s innovative system and Komori’s products will provide a new business model which has not been possible to implement until now."

Aviv Ratzman, co-founder and CEO of Highcon, says, “This partnership is a testament to the quality and industrial strength of our product offering which brings huge benefits to both digital and conventional workflows. We are proud to have our young technology taking its place amidst the portfolio of Komori, with their almost 100 years’ experience of manufacturing products of superior quality and reliability.”
