Digital cutting and creasing machinePringraf to install world’s first Highcon Euclid IIPringraf in Italy is in the process of installing the world’s first Highcon Euclid II digital cutting and creasing machine. Giuseppe and Roberto Prioriello, co-founders of Pringraf, said, “We have been in the printing business since 1994 and have always been interested in the connection between graphic design, digital technology and printing. This new product will remove the limits inherent in creating an imaginative design and will make the realization of package design far more hassle-free.”Highcon Euclid digital cutting and creasing machineIn order to demonstrate their commitment, Pringraf entered and won design awards with a package digitally cut and creased on a Highcon Euclid machine. The Gelato box won both the Pro Carton Ecma Award and the Luxury Packaging Best in Show awards as well as best food pack, during the past couple of months.

Initially, the customer, Aloha, wanted a wicker basket, which is expensive, but Pringraf produced a cardboard package, which represents the product and remains useful right to the end. The original shape was kept and the wicker structure was created through intricate laser cutouts. This resulted in a more ecologically sustainable and less expensive concept. Time to market was only three months. And the customer achieved his objective – sales increased and market presence also increased significantly.

Game-changing technology
Nigel Tracey, Highcon sales director, said, “I have known Pringraf for several years. They are true innovators and the Highcon Euclid is a great match for them. I am looking forward to seeing how it helps grow their business.” Pringraf signed the deal with MGraf, the latest addition to Highcon’s distribution channel in Italy. David Marinoni of MGraf, said, The great thing about this business is the ability to bring two friends together. The combination of Highcon’s game-changing technology and Giuseppe’s vision will be a great success and personally, I am very happy because we supplied Prioriello brothers with a small offset machine more than twenty years ago and due to Highcon, we are now renewing our long relationship through this important project.”

The Highcon Euclid II incorporates numerous productivity and quality improvements – the result of valuable production inputs garnered from Euclid customers around the world, including a new substrate handling system, enhanced creasing quality, and optimized cutting algorithms. The Euclid II will be installed at a special site in Campochiaro.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
