Extreme durability combined with excellent usability - contrasts which were successfully combined in this user interface. A modular housing system of the highest protection class (IP69K) preserves the modular user interface as well as its electronics from damage.

The newly defined color and navigation concept of the GUI and the universal design of buttons and icons facilitate efficient and intuitive use by the operator via the PCT (Projected Capacitive Technology, as used inside modern smart phones).

Parameters such as the cleaning position, knife and tool change, etc. can be set faster and safer. The case displays a clear, straightforward and timeless design, which also harmonizes sustainably with the various machines of Tipper Tie.

Formerly of colored plastic, today the system is made completely of stainless steel investment casting with tempered glass and a substantially reduced number of parts and variations. As a result, customers of Tipper Tie enjoy a perceivable, aesthetic and technical performance increase with considerable cost savings.
