Highcon Beam 2C Nonstop Configuration

At drupa 2020, Highcon will demonstrate the latest versions of the enhanced Highcon Euclid and Beam platforms, named the Highcon Euclid 5 and Highcon Beam 2. The star of the Highcon booth at drupa, the company explains, will be the Highcon Beam 2C machine targeting the corrugated board market.

With Highcon Euclid and Beam digital cutting and creasing machines installed worldwide, digital finishing is gradually becoming truly accepted in the marketplace, Highcon explains. Several Highcon customers have already acquired second machines to cope with supply chain challenges when utilizing conventional die cutting, increased demand by brand owners for rapid turnaround for campaigns and promotions and reduced working capital requirements that only digital finishing enables.

Customer feedback has resulted in significant advancements in the technology, in terms of efficiency, reliability, quality and predictability. Highcon also continues to invest in its Euclid product platform. One of the most visible developments of the new series of Euclid machines is the User Interface adopted from the Beam machines.

After seven years in the field, the company explains Highcon technology has gone through “substantial improvements” as reflected in the increase in the number of jobs per machine by 35 percent year over year from 2016 to 2019. On the drupa 2020 show floor in Hall 9, Booth C50, visitors will be able to see Highcon machines working at full production capacity, as well as witness firsthand testimonials from customers around the world.
