Oak Brook, Illinois, April 14, 2021- Maxcess, a global leader in innovative products and services for web handling applications, has announced a new software update to its revolutionary DST-1 Object Recognition Sensor to make setup and material changes faster and more intuitive. Released in 2019, the DST-1 ushered in the next-generation of guiding sensor technology, allowing ONE sensor to perform the job of many to increase output while reducing scrap, saving you time and money.

“We gathered valuable customer feedback from around the globe to redesign our user interface from the ground up for the DST-1,” said Darren Irons, Global Product Manager for Fife Guiding. “We listened to our global customers and revamped the user interface software to guide just about any material in three steps. No user manual or setup instructions are required to be up and running in seconds.”
