Retrofit & Modernization
Unplanned idle periods, lackluster energy efficiency, high maintenance costs, etc. – when aging machines and systems cause problems, the decisive question for you as an operator is: Should we invest in new equipment or should the existing system be updated to the state of the art? For purpose of making this very decision a little bit easier for you, we have obtained extensive knowledge on the topic of retrofitting and will now give you a short overview on the subject.
Retrofitting is recommended for older production machines when the mechanical parts contain a lot of steel or automation is outdated and susceptible to breakage. This is because, first of all, the costs for a retrofit are usually between 20 and 60 percent of those for purchasing a new machine, and second of all because it can take a long time for a new machine to be delivered once it is ordered. Our technology and industry expertise make us the perfect partner for your retrofitting project. From comprehensive consulting through to punctual execution. Our customized concepts utilize the latest technology and follow a clearly defined implementation process – perfectly suited to your requirements, timeline, and budget.
