Esko and Highcon have signed an OEM agreement whereby Highcon will distribute, install and support the Esko CAD Digital Front End software alongside its Euclid digital cutting and creasing machine.
Esko’s ArtiosCAD software will convert designs to the Euclid’s format. Highcon will add a new software tool to the Euclid, the Highcon Light Editor, that allows operators to edit crease and cut lines in the structural design of the job at the point of production, including last-minute changes. It can add or remove nicks and change their size, as well as adding, removing or editing stripping lines.
It’s a sensible tie-up as Esko’s CAD software is already the standard for processing structural designs and will help to underline the Euclid’s usefulness as part of a digital workflow.
The combined solution will be available immediately on a worldwide basis.
