Additional Modules

  • Included
    The Highcon CAD Light Editor software module allows operators to take full advantage of the flexibility of the digital cutting and creasing technology by enabling:

    * Last minute editing of crease and cut lines
    * Corrections, design changes, optimization
    * Nick optimization
    - Increasing or decreasing the size of nicks
    - Adding and removing nicks
    * Stripping lines which facilitate efficient waste removal
  • Optional add-on
    This easy to use, variable data cutting and etching software is a high value application for packaging, commercial printing and any printed communication, bringing the benefits of variable data to finishing. It turns a technical process into an opportunity for differentiation. Variable data cutting can transform simple products into premium ones by adding customization, personalization and security applications. The variable cutting can be performed per job as well as per sheet.
  • Optional add-on
    Highcon Advanced Registration adds the capability to detect a printed mark on the sheet while inputting sheets into the machine paper handling process. This is on top of a mechanical registration that detects the edge of the sheets. This new module improves the registration of cutting and creasing, reducing errors resulting from printing. This is of particular importance for digitally printed sheets and can compensate for the inaccuracy of the printed image relative to the sheet leading edge.
  • Optional add-on
    Available for all Highcon digital cutting and creasing machines. The waste stripping mechanism is a built-in unit inside the Highcon machines that automatically removes the waste from the smallest internal cutouts produced on the sheets by the lasers. The optimized cutting algorithms, together with a new substrate handling system ensure completely clean cuts that are essential for intricate cutouts. All the small particles drop into an easily removable chamber.
    * This module removes the need to buy, setup or store a separate stripping tool and further advances the productivity of the machine.
