Machine retrofit - an economic alternative

Modernization of your machines, also called retrofitting, is the solution when it comes to giving your machine park a new life. We can help you get your machines back in top shape. In most cases, the mechanics is still in a good or very good condition, but the controller and drives are worn out, resulting in increasingly frequent failures and more and more trouble getting spare parts.

In practice, this means:
- Replacement and reinstallation of CNC controls and/or drives of the latest generation, irrespective of the technology used before
- Mechanical reworking and modernization of the complete package, if necessary.

Depending on the equipment you need and on the degree of conversion, you can achieve the following main advantages:
 - Increased productivity by reducing the standstill and downtimes and through faster machining cycles when machining complex parts
 - Higher quality through higher accuracy and simple operation and programming
 - Greater ease of operation and programming
 - Faster machining cycles when machining complex parts - Greater precision
 - Spare parts supply guaranteed for a long period of time
 - Reliable and safe data management
 - Larger memory capacity
 - Networking and CAD link options.
