Highcon, Esko Report Cutting/Software Agreement


YAVNE, ISRAEL | Highcon Systems is pleased to announce a commercial and technological cooperation agreement with Esko, Gent, Belgium, to integrate the Esko ArtiosCAD structural design and manufacturing software with the Highcon Euclid digital cutting and creasing machine.

Miki Zimmer, cofounder and COO of Highcon, says, “Throughout the development of the Euclid, we have focused on combining our own technology with that of best-in-class suppliers to deliver optimized solutions to the customer. There is no doubt Esko is our first choice of workflow partner.”

Adds Bernard Zwaenepoel, senior VP Software Business at Esko, "We are proud to be part of the game-changing revolution that Highcon is bringing to the folding carton market. As the world’s major player in packaging prepress workflow, Esko is the natural partner to also drive this digital cutting and creasing revolution together with Highcon.”

Highcon’s Direct-to-Pack solution uses new technology to eliminate conventional dies and deliver high quality cut and creased sheets from digital data. Turnaround times are said to be cut dramatically while run lengths to 10,000 sheets become attractive and profitable for the converter.

Both Esko and Highcon will be exhibiting at drupa 2012 in May, and visitors will be able to see the results of the collaboration at the Highcon booth, B28 in Hall 4.
