LONDON, UK | Highcon announces that its Euclid has been awarded the “Best Production Printing Finishing Device” in the Annual Awards from the European Digital Press Assn. (EDP) for quality and innovation in technologies for the digital printing industry. The award was presented at ceremonies held during FESPA this past June.
The Euclid fully digital cutting and creasing machine for folding carton converting is said to offer users savings of time and money by eliminating the die-making process. It incorporates company’s patent-pending DART (Digital Adhesive Rule Technology) to produce creases and high-speed laser optics to cut sheets to 760 x 1060 (30 x 42 in.), that have been produced by any printing process.
Company says streamlining the finishing process offers carton converters the ability to meet demands for medium and short-run jobs cost-effectively with faster speed to market, enabling job change flexibility and faster reaction times to changing customer requirements.
Daniel Broglie, managing director of Chromos AG, Highcon’s distribution partner in Switzerland who nominated the Euclid, said, “This is a breakthrough technology for a sector that has long needed the benefits of digital solutions. I hope many folding carton converters see this recognition and look at adopting it in their businesses.”
