The Highcon Beam digital cutting and creasing solution extends the digital finishing revolution to mainstream production. With a speed of up to 5,000 sheets per hour, this breakthrough machine was developed as a robust solution to the challenges facing folding carton converters and print service providers.
The Highcon Beam replaces the expensive and slow conventional die-making and setup process with a digital technology that delivers improved responsiveness, design flexibility and the ability to perform a wide range of applications in-house.
Creasing is based on Highcon’s patented DART (Digital Adhesive Rule Technology). In the Highcon DART process digital rules are written onto a DART Foil on the machine. Setup for the DART is a mere 15 minutes. The result is crease lines with the same physical attributes as traditional ones.
Creased sheets move in one pass to be cut, perforated or etched with precision CO2 lasers and innovative optics. Intricate cutouts and decorative cuts are simple and fast. Being a digital process, last-minute changes or edits are simple and can be done on the machine in seconds.
A wide range of new, high value applications offers you differentiation and a competitive edge, Beam offers a profitable solution for in-house finishing of long and short runs.
