Pro Carton’s Museum Of Brands Exhibition Re-Opens


The winners of Pro Carton and ECMA’s European Carton Excellence Awards 2020 are now back on display at the Museum of Brands, London, England, after the exhibition was cut short due to the national lockdowns. Extended for a further three months, visitors to the museum will be able to view the collection of 21 inno- vatively designed cartons, including the winners of the Save the Planet Award, the Innovation Award and Van Genechten Packaging’s Roku Gin pack which won Car- ton of the Year. For the first time, visitors will be able to take home a free copy of the 2020 awards brochure, which gives more de- tails on each exhibit as well as the first ever virtual Carton Event & Awards ceremony which took place on October 7, 2020. The Museum of Brands is home to more than 12,000 ex- hibits from iconic, internationally renowned brands span- ning from the Victorian era right up to the modern-day. The museum features temporary exhibitions, talks, webi- nars and workshops, which aim to create debate and ex- amine the role of brands in history and the modern world. The exhibition will be running for 3 months following the opening on the May 17. For more information on the exhi- bition visit: . Digital Room Adds Another Highcon Cutter Following the installation of a Highcon Euclid IIIC digital cutting and creasing machine at their Brook Park, Ohio, site at the end of 2019, Digital Room has now increased production with a Beam 2 machine at their site in Van Nuys, California. “With the constant increase in e-commerce, custom- ers want to be able to decide the shape, size, color and quantity of the items they need – they do not want to be limited to what they are told they can have,” Chase Cairncross, COO, Digital Room, said. “By using digital finishing technology, we eliminate the need for physical dies, we shorten the cycle time from order to delivery and we offer our customers unlimited design creativity, all benefits that are extremely challenging using conven- tional converting equipment. That is how we started us- ing the Highcon Euclid IIIC machine for corrugated. As our business grew, we realized the potential of extending the digital finishing revolution would allow us to expand the range of products for other categories we are able to offer our customers.” “We were up and running, delivering customer jobs within four days of the equipment arriving at our facility,” said Cairncross. “In less than four months, we are already operating three shifts per day.
