The Israeli company, Highcon, has announced it has been cooperating with Duran Machinery to perform digital cutting and creasing on folding carton packages that then pass to Duran’s Omega folding gluing machines.
Highcon has developed a unique patented converting solution for the folding carton finishing market and its first product, the Highcon Euclid, will be presented at drupa 2012.The tie-up with Duran Machinery is part of Highcon’s strategy of building partnerships to support its customers.
With over 23 years experience in producing folder gluers, Duran Machinery has established Omega as one of the best-known brands in the business.
Chris Baker, Highcon Vice President of sales and business development commented: "Once packages have been cut and creased on the Highcon Euclid, they need to continue smoothly to the folding gluing station. Therefore we are delighted that one of the industry leaders has agreed to cooperate with us. We firmly believe the new Highcon Direct-to-Pack category will be an industry game-changer.”
Pinar Kucukaras, Duran Machinery sales and marketing director added: "Duran Machinery has already demonstrated its commitment to packaging solutions. We have been impressed with the direction the Highcon team is taking and are pleased to be able to cooperate on ensuring a seamless integration with our machines which are installed in over 50 countries around the world."
