Quote from Highcon
Nigel Tracey, Highcon International Sales Director said, "We are looking forward to cooperating with Baumann and are excited about introducing the Highcon Euclid into the German market which is known for its appreciation of advanced technologies. We believe the Highcon Direct-to-Pack digital finishing solution will be very well received by folding carton converters here."
With no requirement for a die, and job changeovers measured in minutes rather than hours, the Euclid radically changes the business model for folding carton converters. This digital solution is an effective response to increasing customer demands for faster turnaround times and short run lengths as well as enabling additional and profitable work from both new and existing customers.
