Established in 1963, Ilan Print Ltd is a commercial printing company that combines offset and digital printing with web-to-print and VDP applications. Their expertise allows them to deliver a standard of quality, creativity and responsiveness second to none. Their reputation for innovation and adoption of cutting edge technology has kept them ahead of the market for years and together with unlimited design potential released by their recently installed Highcon Euclid they aim to strengthen their design creativity while streamlining the ordering process and further improving responsiveness to customers.
Since installing the Highcon Euclid, Eran Friedman, VP of Ilan Print, has made a point of introducing the new capabilities of the digital cutting and creasing technology to his customers. A loyal customer of Ilan Print who orders all kinds of marcom products from the company - books, brochures, catalogues etc. - asked if the Highcon Euclid they had heard about could produce a box for their upcoming book. The customer had no die cutting experience but the graphic design was already done. Although Ilan Print has strong graphic staff, they have no in-house structural designer with experience in packaging and up unitl now had outsourced large scale packaging design and production.
By using the Highcon Axis, both the customer and Ilan Print were able to move ahead with no problem. Their designers could logon, go into the Axis library, chose the required dimensions they needed for their box and the dieline was automatically created. They sent the dieline to the customer to apply graphics and then uploaded it back to Axis for 3D preview with graphics. The uploaded file was sent to the customer the same day. The customer approved the design online and the entire order of 150 boxes was accepted, printed, cut, creased and delivered within 24 hours.
According to Eran Friedman: "The Highcon Euclid III offers us true versatility; the ability to extend the already wide range of commercial applications we offer our customers. The machine will not only complete an all-digital flow from our HP Indigo 10000 digital press but will also support our offset printed pieces on B2/30in. sheets and allow us also to produce highly differentiated pieces on unprinted B1/40 in stock. Together with Highcon Axis the service we can now offer our customers is incomparable".
The Highcon Euclid III replaces a complex, expensive and slow die-making and setup process, with an in-house controlled digital system, delivering improved responsiveness, design flexibility and enhanced efficiency. Based on Highcon's proven technology, the Euclid III addressed todays operational challenges and answers tomorrows growth needs by enabling a wide range of applications from packaging and commercial print applications to customisation with Variable Data Cutting and We-to-Pack.
