Modernizing instead of new acquisition

The careful analysis of your system is at the beginning of each retrofit projects if existing, supported by the electrical documents, the PLC programs and the source codes. Should these documents not be available then our specialists will carry out an analysis directly on location. Generally applicable is to find the optimal cost-benefit balance. The target of each retrofit measure is after the reconstruction to achieve a facility that is as good as new with the highest production safety and cost reduction through modern and effective control technology.

The shutdown period of the facility is reduced to a minimum during the reconstruction. This is guaranteed through the optimal planning, the pre-testing of the systems and the simulation of the automation processes by us. We are in the position with our knowledge and the wealth of experience in the automation, production and manufacture to realize this quickly, safely and cost efficiently.
