Highcon® Euclid III Installed in Komori America’s Graphic Technology Center

Rolling Meadows, IL - 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.
