Carton board packaging products manufacturer Glossop Cartons has ordered a Highcon Euclid digital cutting and creasing machine, which will be delivered to the company's Derbyshire facility in April 2013.
The Highcon Euclid, launched in 2012 for the packaging market, will provide the company with faster speeds to market, better flexibility and cost savings on shorter runs.
Glossop Cartons director Jacky Sidebottom said the machine is set to open new possibilities for short-run and bespoke production of cartons.
"Glossop Cartons is constantly looking for new ways to improve its products and services for customers," Sidebottom said.
The direct-to-pack concept also fits well with the company's values of innovation, responsiveness, competitiveness and customer focus.
Highcon Euclid digital cutting and creasing machine does not require a die, but instead uses a combination of a laser to die-cut and DART technology to create the creases.
This enables better versatility and flexibility to address customer needs, meet tighter deadlines and deliver profitability of short and medium run length jobs.
The order was processed by Conversion, a dealer in the UK.
Mark Nixon of Conversion said, "Glossop Cartons is an ideal candidate for the Highcon Euclid. It specialises in offering customers flexibility and service and the digital cutting and creasing capabilities of the Euclid will allow them to enhance their product offering and bring quality packages to the shelf even more rapidly."
