DEK customers secure a future-proofed productivity advantage with value-driven Horizon platform

Jan 28, 2009

Horizon from DEK is currently changing what manufacturers can expect from the screen printing marketplace, delivering significantly more choice and value to generate a future-proofed productivity advantage. With the flexibility and freedom of choice necessary to deliver maximum Return on Investment, Horizon is being widely adopted by manufacturers looking to compete successfully in today's economic climate and beyond.

The DEK Horizon platform offers a comprehensive array of advanced features as standard, including optimized printer frame technology, motorized stencil alignment, fast product changeover, 2.0 Cpk print process capability and 6-sigma production performance � offering a clear productivity advantage from the outset. However, Horizon also equips manufacturers with the power to choose from a wide range of advanced options retrofittable in the field to address future applications, production needs or technologies. Putting options such as speed improvements, intelligent board support and rapid understencil cleaning within easy reach of manufacturers in any environment and at any time, Horizon dramatically reduces cost-of-ownership to maximize value over platform lifetime.

Commenting on Horizon's capacity to alter the screen printing marketplace, DEK's Karen Moore Watts explains: �Now more than ever, customers know that what they need today might not be the answer tomorrow. Horizon takes this element of risk out of every screen printing purchasing decision, delivering a proven combination of unprecedented choice and unbeatable value. The platform has everything our customers need to achieve major advances in throughput, yield and productivity today. But it's also got the flexibility they need to achieve their goals tomorrow � whatever they may be. Horizon's industry-leading accuracy and repeatability enables it to grow alongside precise business requirements without compromise. Coupled with our award-winning Service & Support, we can keep the platform in spec to deliver the lowest cost-of-ownership across its lifetime.�

The powerhouse behind Horizon's range of standard and optional productivity tools is DEK's advanced Instinctiv� V9 machine user interface. Delivering a wide range of utilization and productivity benefits, Instinctiv V9 enables real-time feedback, shorter time to first print, lower operator training requirements and easier error avoidance and recovery.
