Investment in a new system is not limited to the purchase price. The budget also has to provide for conversion work and the associated long stoppage times. When viewed against this background, renovation is often more attractive in terms of cost than purchasing a new system.
Renovating extends the service life of your system, increases return on investment and brings it up to the current state of technology. A newly designed system, on the other hand, can optimise the hydraulics, reduce costs and increase the system’s useful life.
Optimising a hydraulic circuit and introducing modern components usually increases energy efficiency. This often goes hand-in-hand with higher working speeds and greater productivity. Operating costs drop, as does the total cost of ownership (TCO), while profits rise.
Legal regulations are continually amended and extended over the product life cycle of a machine. Operators have a legal and moral obligation to observe such regulations, particularly in relation to the protection of health and safety. By retrofitting you bring your system into compliance with the latest legislation.
After renovation, a system works like new. However, unlike a new system, the operator does not have to completely retrain the operatives. The operatives need to become familiar with only the changed aspects of the machine and new components, such as the controls.
