Highcon and Konica Minolta Cooperation at Graph Expo 14

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

Press release from the issuing company

CHICAGO – At the Graph Expo 14 exhibition in Chicago, Highcon and Konica Minolta are demonstrating their shared vision of the potential of digital workflow for commercial printers and folding carton converters.

Under the theme of “Convert to Value” Highcon is displaying packaging products printed on the Konica Minolta KM-1 29 inch sheet-fed UV inkjet press and then digitally cut and creased by the Highcon Euclid II+ machine.
 
Chris Baker, VP Sales & Business Development, Highcon: “It is no coincidence that both Highcon and Konica Minolta have the word “value” in our slogans for the show. It is clear that only by adding value for our customers in their existing processes, can we enable them to realize the true potential of digital technology.”
 
Katsuhisa Ida, General Manager, CP Business Department, Business Development Division, Inkjet Business Unit, Konica Minolta, Inc.: “It is a pleasure to show Euclid digital die-cut samples printed by KM-1 at Graph Expo. KM-1 is not only for Commercial Printing but also folding carton printing. Please come to the KM booth (1231) and Highcon booth (1262) to see & feel the digital folding carton potential released by this cooperation.”
 
The award winning Highcon Euclid is the first fully digital cutting and creasing machine for converting paper, labels, folding carton and microflute. The Euclid incorporates Highcon’s patented ‘DART’ (Digital Adhesive Rule Technology) to produce creases, and high-speed laser optics to cut a wide range of substrates. By eliminating the conventional die-making process, the digital workflow enables converters and printers to increase profitability on short runs, improve design flexibility as well as time-to-market.
 
The Highcon Euclid II+ features the unique Highcon Integrated Digital Stripping Unit, double speed throughput, optical registration, optimized cutting algorithms and a fine cutting accelerator, all of which demonstrate advances in quality, productivity and functionality reflecting the production experience of Euclid customers around the world.
