The Highcon Productivity Boost package extends the capabilities of the Highcon Euclid platform, allowing customers to produce more jobs per-shift, with higher profitability, enabling a faster return on investment A combination of software development and mechanical upgrade to support higher productivity, increases the maximum speed of the machine to B1 (106 cm / 42 in.) – from 1,500 to a maximum speed of 2,250 sph and B2 (76 cm / 29 in.) – from 2,000 to a maximum speed of 2,750 sph. Following field implementation of the productivity boost with existing customers, average job speed has risen as follows: For B1 jobs between 15%-20% and for B2 jobs, between 25%-40%.
The productivity boost is an option applicable to the Euclid platform (Euclid III, Euclid IIIS and has full backward compatibility). Features include: An enhanced laser algorithm allows better optimization of laser movement and beam power utilization, resulting in a speed increase on any job. An updated ‘reduced gap’ feature enables further speed increase in sheets smaller than the maximum size. The impact on speed increases as the sheet size becomes smaller. Upgrade of the feeding and stacking units allows support and stability at high running speed and the increased speed and new algorithm also contribute to quality improvement.
