Highcon Axis

The Highcon Axis 2D to 3D platform is a software solution that brings the benefits of a web-to-print system to all the players in the complex paper or cartonboard production supply chain. While web-to-print solutions handle only straightforward 2D products, like brochures or business cards, the Highcon Axis handles all the intricacies of 3-dimensional folding applications.

For converters and trade finishers coping with increasing pressure to deliver shorter runs with rapid turnaround, including a demand for customization, Highcon Axis enables efficient yet profitable on-demand packaging and reduced communication overhead with brand owners.

For print service providers looking for new applications and a larger portion of their existing customers’ print spend, the move into the production of promotional items, folding carton work and even packaging can be challenging. Whether printing on conventional or digital presses, the Highcon Axis enables the level of on-demand service clients already expect.

For brand owners and retailers, the platform simplifies the corporate ability to protect and enforce a global brand while producing packaging locally. Time to shelf, production and transport costs are all reduced while improving the efficiency of the entire process. At the same time digital workflow ensures brand production and limitless design capabilities including last minute changes.

Highcon 3D Modeling option

Highcon 3D Modeling software leverages the key advantages of Highcon technology to add a brand new high value application. Originally developed for finishing and converting in the printing and packaging industries, the Highcon digital technology includes high speed, accurate digital cutting of paper and paper-based substrates. The cutting can be made using variable data for each single sheet. Customers have no need for any previous knowledge of 3D printing.

Highcon has developed a dedicated workflow allowing the conversion of standard 3D models to separate layers that can be cut on Highcon’s machines.

How does it work?
Each 3D model is sliced into separate layers according to the paper’s parameter. For example, this 3D model of a complex 1.4 meter wine stand was created using 600 micron recycled cardboard. The input of 0.6 mm layer height (each layer is created on different sheet of paper), resulted in an output of close to 2,400 different layers, each representing a shape to be cut on the Highcon machine. These 2,400 DXF files are then sent to Highcon’s machine that automatically cuts each layer of paper according to the desired shape. The process results in paper models with a maximum size of 106X76X110 mm.

Highcon’s 3D modeling process enables customer to create any model in a fast and cost effective way. Small models are sliced and spread across the sheet to minimize substrate waste and optimize total turnaround time. For example, a 3D model comprised of 360 different layers was created using only 60 sheets of paper, by splitting the model into 6 parts. Each part of the model, and each layer was numbered by laser etching. The software is also capable of optimizing the cutting of the layers to reduce weight.
