Neenah, Wisconsin based Menasha Packaging announced an investment in a Highcon Beam 2C digital die cutting system for corrugated production. This is the third Highcon system purchased by Menasha in less than half a year, following the purchase and recent installation of two Highcon Beam 2 systems. 

Mensaha’s commitment to Highcon’s digital die cutting solutions has also led them to join the Vulcan Foundation Customer Program, giving them priority for earliest delivery of Highcon’s next generation digital die cutting platform for corrugated production. Menasha is the sixth and final member to join this program.

The Vulcan1 will address a painful gap in current corrugated die cutting solutions. It has a maximum sheet size of 55 inches by 66 inches and supports boards up to 5mm, including microflute, B, C, and EB flutes. Like all Highcon systems, Vulcan will combine true physical creasing with laser cutting.

“We are impressed with how fast we have started production ramp up. Within 3 weeks from systems delivery, we have commenced full ramp up on both systems and we are certainly off to a good start,” said President of Menasha Packaging Michael Riegsecker. “This has given us the confidence to move into the next phase and extend digital die cutting to corrugated.”

“Menasha’s decision to purchase its third Highcon system and join the Vulcan Foundation Customer Program shortly after the first two units is a strong testament to the focus of Highcon’s entire team and of the potential of Highcon systems to solve customer needs and create value,” said Shlomo Nimrodi, Highcon CEO.
