Premier Autoclave Service & Solutions are to rebrand their autoclave and oven software. The official launch of Cure Manager will take place at The Composites Engineering Show.
Premier explains its software has been a longstanding frontrunner in automotive and aerospace industries and the new name is to coincide with the release of the next software update.
The company explains the Cure Manager software, previously called Prodigy, will preserve the features that have developed its strong position in the market today. These include total traceability, password protected, variety of control options (hottest, average or coldest thermocouple, air temp or thermal head), remote dial-in (minimised downtime), self-diagnostics, out of hours SMS amongst other features.
Scott Dyson, Premier Head of Sales commented “As part of Premier’s continuous development we feel Cure Manager better describes the control system’s function and as an aside it’s an exciting opportunity to put a fresh brand into the market.”
“The customer feedback we’ve received of late has been outstanding. RUAG Space has commented on user-friendly functionality vastly improving their efficiency. ARRK Europe referenced AMS2750E capability opening the door to new customers and Cytec Materials talked of their front end upgrade at the Heanor site increasing productivity by an estimated 20%.”
Premier Autoclaves will be exhibiting on stand B142 at the show.
