Maxcess International, created by the merger of Maxcess with RotoMetrics earlier this year, has been increasing R&D investments to deliver significant benefits for its customers.
The merger, announced in January 2020, combined the web handling specialist Maxcess, with the rotary tools manufacturer, RotoMetrics under a new name of Maxcess International. Since then the company has seen increased R&D investments along with several new initiatives to help its customers with productivity improvements.
‘An early R&D initiative to combine RotoMetrics’ anvil technology with Fife’s digital sensors is showing tremendous promise to help tag and label customers increase productivity,’ said Sean Craig, global vice president of R&D. ‘In addition, the integration of performance coatings from Componex, Webex, Valley Roller, Menges and RotoMetrics offer increased performance on a variety of roller products including nip rolls, idler rolls and more across a variety of industries, including packaging and medical applications.’
With significant investments in R&D, Maxcess is expanding its Industry 4.0 digital technologies, with end-to-end monitoring and data collection, allowing customers to run smarter production lines with minimized downtime and optimized speeds.
‘While Covid-19 has impacted our ability to have face-to-face meetings, we continue to focus on cross training our organization, identifying several complementary and bundled technologies to help our customers work better, faster and smarter,’ added Molly Moroni, vice president of sales for North America.
‘By highlighting our combined technologies, we’ve been able to help customers do more, which is increasingly important given the resource challenges customers are facing. Many of our customers deemed essential during this pandemic have been improving productivity and output of key PPE products,’ concluded Moroni.
