Highcon announces updates to the Euclid and new distribution channels

Friday, June 20, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

Yavne, Israel - During the past few months Highcon has been expanding in all directions, due to the interest in its game-changing digital cutting and creasing solution - The Highcon™ Euclid.

New channels

Highcon has appointed new distribution channels all over the world:

  • A to Z Graphic Solutions in Israel
  • Canadian Printing Equipment in Canada
  • Castiel Group in Mexico
  • Matset in Turkey
  • MGraf in Italy
  • Monotech in India

The company has also welcomed Manuel Perez Castellano to the position of Sales Manager, Europe. Mr. Castellano has spent the past 20 years in sales and marketing roles in the print industry, for companies like NUR Macroprinters (now HP) Vutek (now EFI, Gandi Innovations (now Agfa) and VIM Technologies.

New features for new applications

As a result of the experience gained at customer sites, Highcon is pleased to announce new features already being implemented in the Euclid.

  • Substrates thickness and type
    • Highcon Euclid customers have been putting the machine through its paces and produced work on substrates beyond the initial specifications:
      • N-flute
      • 0.25 mm (10 pt.) substrate
      • Metallic coated board
  • Labels and stickers
    • Self-adhesive labels and stickers are proving to be successful applications offering new substrate cutting possibilities for converters and printers.
  • Reverse Scoring
    • The separation of the two processes of cutting and creasing on the Euclid allows vastly increased flexibility, and the creation of reverse scoring with no need for additional equipment or complex dies.
  • Highcon Light Editor software tool
    • With the digitization of the post-print process, Highcon has developed a “light editor software tool” that allows Euclid operators  to take full advantage of the digital technology by enabling:
      • Last minute editing of crease and cut lines
      • Partial cutting depth control
      • Sharp angled cut control
      • Individual box personalization

These new tools and features are enabling Highcon Euclid users and their customers to expand their offering, streamline their workflow and develop award-winning applications, while the extended distribution network takes these benefits into new regions.
