This month’s issue sees news of many product developments across the industry, especially from coating and laminating machine manufacturers, plus advice on the benefits of appealing to new customers in neighbouring markets in order to develop new expertise and increase sales. This is the motto for one specialist company that is constantly evolving to stay ahead of rapidly changing global legislations, saying that this is the key to securing new contracts over its competitors. As well as this, manufacturing processes are always in need of updating, and as technology moves on, changes to software systems will allow machine operators easier access to feedback data to highlight the weakest points of an operation, and it seems that remote access using programmes on almost any device is the way forward.
