Highcon's Revolutionary Laser-cutting Ability Expands Company's Options for Unique Print and Packaging Solutions
Rolling Meadows, IL, - Komori America Corporation announces that Impress Communications has purchased a Highcon Euclid III for its Chatsworth, CA facility. It is the first installation of a Highcon Euclid III in the West. Komori America and Highcon, a global provider of digital cutting and creasing solutions, entered a strategic selling agreement in late 2016. Komori America now sells and supports the entire Highcon product line as part of its overall strategy to create new value for its customers with the ability to effectively connect various processes to Komori's diverse functions with the latest technologies.
Impress Communications designs and produces a variety of materials, from high-end product brochures to complex packaging to point-of-purchase displays. The company is the home of three specialized Komori sheet-fed printing presses, an eight-color Lithrone S40P with double coater and Komori's proprietary H-UV system, a six-color Lithrone SX29 and four-color Lithrone S40P, both equipped with H-UV. The Highcon Euclid III complements Komori's advanced printing systems with its ability to remove bottlenecks in the post-press process. Additionally, it delivers increased design flexibility by offering a wide range of applications that include unique packaging solutions, intricate cutouts, etching, unique scoring capabilities and 3D modeling.
"We are extremely excited about the Highcon's capabilities, and even more excited for the true innovations that will be realized once our customers can bring their full creativity to bear on the near limitless possibilities," said Paul Marino, president, Impress Communications. "Having the ability to precisely cut out intricate patterns, which would otherwise be impossible to achieve with traditional steel rule cutting dies, makes it possible for us to envision every job from a new perspective given the immense impact laser die-cutting brings to a design."
"The versatility of the Highcon Euclid III adds further value to innovation inherent in the Komori presses. We are confident its broad design flexibility will support Impress Communications in providing customers eye-catching products that stand out in a crowded marketplace," said Ron Kukla, Highcon's sales director for the Americas.
"Komori is committed to offering solutions that provide the flexibility, innovative applications and faster time to market necessary today to succeed," said Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president of new business development for Komori America. "We are looking forward to seeing the unique applications they will be able to produce when combining the advanced technology of our Komori presses with the versatility of the Highcon."
