Chesapeake, a leading European packaging company, announced today that it plans to further expand its digital capability by investment in the Highcon™ Euclid digital cutting and creasing machine. The company signed the agreement at the recent Drupa show in Dusseldorf, Germany where Highcon was showing the Euclid to the public for the first time.
"We have been following the progress of the Highcon technology for some time" said Dougie Potter, Technical Services Director of Chesapeake, "and were delighted to see it perform live at the show. We believe the addition of this unique digital solution can complement our existing equipment and offer more flexibility to better serve the needs of our customers.”
“We have been delighted with the response the Euclid has received at the show" said Nigel Tracey, Sales Director at Highcon. "Converters from all over the world came to see this revolutionary product, including the leading suppliers in the industry. With shipments starting at the end of the year we are ramping up to meet the very welcomed demand."
The Highcon Euclid is the world's first completely digital production cutting and creasing machine and removes the necessity for production of a die by implementing new polymer and laser technologies to carry out the creasing and cutting. Setup time is reduced to minutes and will allow converters to be far more responsive to their customer demands.
