Komori Completes Install of a Highcon Euclid III at Its Graphic Technology Center
ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill. — January 11, 2017 — Komori America Corporation announced today that the installation of the Highcon Euclid III in its Graphic Technology Center is complete. Komori America and Highcon, a global provider of digital cutting and creasing solutions, entered into a strategic selling agreement in late 2016. Going forward, Komori America will sell and support the entire Highcon product line as part of its overall strategy to create new value and richer communications through “connected print”—the ability to effectively connect various processes to Komori’s diverse functions with the latest technologies.
The Highcon Euclid III complements Komori’s advanced printing systems with its ability to remove bottlenecks in the post-press process as well as deliver increased design flexibility by offering a wide range of applications that include unique packaging solutions, intricate cutouts, etching, unique scoring capabilities and 3D modeling.
“We are very excited to have the Highcon Euclid III as part of our demo center. The need for greater flexibility, innovative applications and faster time to market is top of mind for all printers today and our goal is to continue to support our customers in meeting all three. Having the Highcon Euclid III here gives us the opportunity showcase the path to becoming a print media enterprise with the ability to cover both analog and digital workflows — from print to finishing,” said Jacki Hudmon, senior vice president of new business development for Komori America.
Founded in 2009 by Aviv Ratzman and Michael Zimmer, Highcon developed a truly innovative digital cutting and creasing solution that is transforming the post-print market. Highcon now offers converters, printers and trade finishers a product portfolio that covers a wide range of formats, substrates and applications: from general commercial and packaging products to variable data cutting, 3D modeling and an online web-to-pack solution. The Highcon solutions replace the expensive and slow conventional die making and setup process with a digital technology that bridges the gap between design creativity and production capability, delivering improved responsiveness, design flexibility and the ability to perform a wide range of applications in-house. Highcon products are installed at customer sites all over the world.
