It’s no secret that commercial printers are increasingly looking to packaging as a possible stable ground, a new arena in which to find their footing following the tumultuous recession years and the so-called death of print.

Esko and Highcon have expanded its partnership with an OEM agreement that will see Highcon distribute, install and support the Esko CAD digital dront end (DFE) software as a complement to the Highcon Elucid. The system is available immediately

Esko’s CAD software is already the standard for processing structural designs for production on the Highcon Euclid. It converts packaging structures to the finishing format required by the Euclid, which receives its CAD cutting and creasing information from ArtiosCAD prepared or converted DFX files. With the new OEM agreement, the Euclid will now offer an on-board software tool, the Highcon Light Editor that allows Euclid operators to take advantage of digital technology by editing crease and cut lines in the structural design of the job at the point of production, including the ability to incorporate last-minute changes. It also enables optimizing of nicks by increasing or decreasing their size or adding or removing them; and adding, removing or editing stripping lines. >>
