Highcon to launch three new machines

Highcon is planning to unveil three new digital finishing machines from entry level to top-of-the-line production capability at the drupa show. They will be based on Highcon’s core cutting and creasing technology.

The flagship model is the Highcon Beam, designed for mainstream folding carton converters and B1 printers. It costs around $1.5 million and can produce up to 5,000 sheets per hour. One of these is shortly due to be installed at Glossop Cartons for a beta test and should be commercially available by the end of this year.

Then there’s the Pulse, which offers digital cutting and creasing technology to enable an in-house controlled digital system. It integrates into existing B2 workflows and can produce up to 2000sph. It won’t be available until next year. Cost is likely to be around $395,000.

Finally, there’s the third iteration of the entry-level Euclid, which is aimed at digital printers and small folding carton converters. It runs at 1500sph and will cost $800,000. There’s an optional 3D module that can create objects from any type of substrate, including recycled board and even used offset make-ready sheets. This should be ready to order at drupa.
