Robyn Smith - President/Publisher: Len Prazych - Vice President “Customers expect us to continually deliver product en- hancements and improvements throughout the life cycle of our equipment, and now more than ever, it’s important that we support them,” comments Shlomo Nimrodi, CEO at Highcon. “The initiatives launched, once implemented at each of our customers’ sites, will have an immediate benefit, but they will also secure future success too. For example, our new unified software platform approach will ensure that all customers continue to benefit from our on- going R&D investment in software tools for years to come.” The company is introducing consumables and services at a new bundled price, allowing for consistent pricing of any job. Customers will be afforded the simplicity, predict- ability and consistency to make it easier to understand their costs and drive better future business decisions – crucially, making considerable savings in the process. Highcon is also launching its fifth Generation DART Consumable set (5thGDC), engineered to improve crease quality and reduce setup time by up to 20 percent. It also features a broader range of supported boards, leading to increased application possibilities and ensuring that fin- ished jobs meet the quality requirements of major brands. The initiative represents years of R&D investment in opti- mizing specialized proprietary consumables, for dynamic, digitally driven physical creasing. These latest updates have been launched in response to customer feedback matched to its own R&D roadmap. They have been designed to help customers to better meet the challenges of the pandemic, as well as an in- creasingly competitive landscape where margins are tight and product differentiation is key.
