Sioux CCM is experiencing a growing number of customers that require ‘intelligent’ products and systems. Advanced control of physical quantities, in multiple domains, call for Layer 2 and Layer 3 deliverables. Sioux CCM strives to embed them in customized fit-for use industrial solutions through the ‘I-MECH Center’ service approach. In this way, Sioux CCM will catalyze the I-MECH output towards various SMEs, preferably throughout Europe. It is expected that this service will eventually introduce a 10% growth (2M€) per year, during the 4 years after founding the IMECH Center.
Additionally the I-MECH deliverables, to a large extend, can be integrated into our GSC via the pilot application. The two most important markets for GSC within inkjet (now 40B$) are high volume production printers (Roll to Roll as well as Sheet to Sheet) and label printers. These markets are growing 30% per year. This growth is driven by “customized print” via digital print. Beside these large markets there are some small size one-off markets. They are interesting because they sell specials that need engineering effort to make the GSC part of whole customized solution. For this development and design work Sioux CCM is an interesting party.
