E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?
EDM – Encoder driven marking
Hybrid – Print-laser combination
MAP – Module automation platform
MOF – Mark on the fly
FPS – Flexible positioning shuttle
E.E: What estimations do you have for 2023?
N.R: Since the outbreak of war in Ukraine, the entire economy has been acting more cautiously and investments have been questioned, delayed or even postponed. Economic conditions are currently being reorganized and restructured. So, we expect Europe’s high-tech industries and their restrained activism to change again in the near future and to strongly increase. The demand of stopped or new investments as well as maintenance will take off.
