Highlight Industries recently visited a customer to talk about adding a new high speed automatic wrapper to their packaging line.
They currently have two of Highlight’s Freedom 6500 automatic rotary arm stretch wrap systems, built in 1996 – 21 years ago!
They also have a 1 year old non-Highlight high speed automatic, which they are not pleased with – and looking to replace.
During Highlight’s visit, we evaluated the machines and came up with some numbers that help illustrate how Highlight machines are built to last:
Between the two old Highlights, one had run 661,000 cycles and the second had run 857,000 cycles.
The second Freedom’s carriage traveled a total distance of 35,600 miles, which is far enough to go around the earth 1.43 times!
Both Highlight machines are still running well, and with a little service, which our distributor is planning to do, they should keep running for many more years.
To add to the customer’s army of Freedom machines, Highlight is quoting that same robust technology that can circle the earth, and we’re also talking about adding the HiLIFE system, which is the latest technology from Highlight to monitor your system and load performance.
So we’re crossing over from the past to the future, keeping what works and improving it with state-of-the-art technology.
Highlight has countless success stories like this one – machines proving themselves time and time again, running for years, and putting customers at ease about their product protection. This is just another example of Highlight’s heavy duty equipment.
