The constant advance in technology requires companies to upgrade and/or retrofit their current equipment to meet the latest industry standards. Retrofitting offers the opportunity to modify and upgrade an old machine in such a way that it can be used in production for many more years.



Machine Safety

The high cost of new machinery means that more and more production plants are considering retrofitting their machines once their payback period is over, adding better performance, new applications, better safety systems and adapting to the new regulations.



Industry 4.0

One of the challenges with industrial machines is connectivity and limited ability to collect and analyse data real-time. Thus, when updating older equipment manufacturers must consider how they can make a piece of machinery ready for digital manufacturing – often referred to as Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
