Moving into digital production

Highcon Systems Ltd has confirmed the sale of a Highcon Beam digital cutting and creasing system to Haubtmann, Autajon's packaging site located close to Saint Etienne in France. The Autajon Group has 33 subsidiaries around the world.

Xavier Boutevillain, Managing Director of Autajon Haubtmann said, “Digital technology is really new for packaging and for the industrial products we supply, that require short runs and very quick lead times, we have seen an opportunity to improve efficiency and reduce bottlenecks with the Highcon Beam. We believe that the Beam will fit seamlessly into our conventional workflow and help us to help our customers serve their markets more efficiently.”

Jens Henrik Osmundsen, Global VP Sales at Highcon said, “Autajon has a well-deserved reputation for their passion for packaging and for the relationships they build with their customers to ensure their successful go-to-market. With the Highcon Beam, they will be able to streamline their supply chain responsiveness and deliver high quality products in the short turnaround times that their customers require."

The Highcon Beam digital cutting and creasing solution extends the digital finishing revolution to mainstream production with a speed of up to 5,000 B1 sheets per hour, and will be installed at Autajon later this year.
