"The demands on convertors are changing fast and they now require more flexible and responsive solutions to meet their customers’ requirements. The team at Highcon has impressed me with its grasp of the future of digital finishing and the Euclid digital cutting and creasing solution is a huge step forward and I am delighted to be part of this revolution"
The Highcon Euclid uses precision laser optics and polymer technologies to transform cutting and creasing from an analogue to a digital workflow, dramatically streamlining the finishing process. Turnaround times are cut dramatically while run lengths up to 10,000 sheets become attractive and profitable for the converter.
