Go from Power to EmPower, our top-notch maintenance program  

To help our customers maximize payback from their cutting equipment, we are offering an all-new EmPower contract, our next-generation service package. The main difference between the former Power and EmPower contract is that our new maintenance program is now 100% digital, and fully integrated into the cutting room. With a brand-new series of applications, such as Knowledge Center, Maintenance Manager, Dashboard, Digital Support, users can now access centralized maintenance data and training sessions, and have remote technical support online without disrupting their ongoing production processes.
