Israel-based Highcon to launch the Euclid at Drupa

 

 

Israel-based Highcon is bringing to market a high speed digital cutting and creasing machine for cartons, transforming the process from an analogue to a digital workflow. The Euclid will be formally launched at Drupa in May.

The machine combines the patent-pending DART technology to create the digital crease lines with a high speed and high quality laser cutting solution and does not require a conventional die.

The Euclid is designed to handle sheet sizes up to a maximum 760mm x 1060mm (30” x 42”), enabling output from both conventional and digital presses. Stock thicknesses are up to 550gsm and a thickness of 0.6mm.
