The BoxMaker Expands Corrugated Business with its Third Highcon Digital Cutting and Creasing System
The BoxMaker, a U.S. leader in digitally produced packaging, has added a Highcon Beam 2C digital cutting and creasing solution to its new all-digital production facility in Lowell, Arkansas.
The system will enable The BoxMaker’s web-to-pack e-commerce platform, Fantastapack.com, to reduce finishing bottlenecks and eliminate costly and time-consuming die-making and setup processes.
Highcon’s digital laser cutting technology plays a critical role in ensuring cost-effective and timely production, while delivering high-quality products. The system optimizes floor space, and enables companies to adopt a digital manufacturing approach incorporating dynamic ganging of jobs to optimize throughput – an important capability in today’s fast-growing web-to-pack industry.
The Highcon Beam 2C digital finishing system is available in 2 configurations: pallet-based; and a nonstop version with nonstop feeder, nonstop stacker and waste removal. It has been engineered to meet the stringent market requirements related to corrugated packaging with a non-crush process. The system is customizable to enable rightsizing and light-weighting of packaging, and is strong enough to allow product to be shipped in its own box.
The Arkansas installation makes The BoxMaker the first converter to operate three Highcon cutting and creasing systems, and they are Highcon’s fastest growing customer. The BoxMaker also added two Highcon Euclid 5C digital cutting and creasing systems in 2021 at its Seattle headquarters.
