    Hey Chris,

    Perhaps these are outside your intended scope, I am more of a process guy, but these things come to mind:

    - Moldflow included?
    - Warranty on # of shots
    - Parts fall freely or must be pulled manually
    - 25% Spare parts on critical components and/or wearables
    - 70% reduction in price for 3 plate mold designs
