Highcon Launches Updated Cutter/Creaser

YAVNE, ISRAEL | Highcon announces the launch of the Euclid IIIC. This latest machine extends the range of the 3rd generation Euclid cutting and creasing machines into the world of corrugated and fluted substrates from 1–3 mm/40–120pt. The machine has been working with corrugated board at LxBxH (https://www.lxbxh.com/en) in Switzerland since the end of 2015 and is now being made commercially available in the market. 

Says Silvano Gauch, president of LxBxH “We have been using the Highcon digital cutting and creasing technology to produce high quality short-run packaging on demand for our customers. The ability to produce small to medium size batches just-in-time with low entry cost, allows our customers to order what they actually want.”

Highcon CEO and co-founder Aviv Ratzman says, “We realized the potential of the corrugated market in B1 and B2 [42- and 28-in.] formats and have been encouraged by the success that LxBxH has had in this market. Box Compression Tests that have been performed by comparing the digitally produced boxes with conventional ones have proven that boxes produced with the same substrate on the Euclid are stronger than those produced on conventional machines. This creates an opportunity to attain the same strength with reduced material usage and as a result, reduced costs. The potential of adding lamination and high quality print to the flutes also opens up a world of packaging that is both visually and structurally effective.”

Company adds that the integration between the digital cutting and creasing and online ordering dovetails into the trend in the industry towards optimizing packaging size to reduce overpackaging and shipping costs.

Reportedly, the Euclid IIIC not only saves on the production and storage of die-cutting forms but also adds the flexibility of digital technology, which enables JIT production, short runs, customized perforations with cleaner edges and easier opening, and variable data etching for customization or personalization down to the level of serial numbers. The Euclid IIIC will handle single-wall, laminated, N F G E and B-flute.
