What exactly is a retrofit? How to always stay up to date

You know it yourself: Plant downtime in production is the worst-case scenario. If something doesn't run smoothly, a replacement part has to be found - and as quickly as possible. But what if it is no longer available? This is not uncommon for machines that are 10 years or older.

New life for your machine

However, it is not only in terms of replacement parts availability that older-generation foam cutting machines eventually reach their limits. After all, the demands on your industry are high and constantly growing: better performance, increased energy efficiency and optimized production reliability are necessary to remain competitive in the future. 

So is a new machine absolutely essential? No! The solution is retrofitting: we bring your contour cutting machine back up to date with smart system modernization. We replace components that are affected by discontinuation and make your old machine as efficient as a new one with targeted conversions. Whether a small update or a comprehensive upgrade: we will find the optimum retrofit for you.

Don't wait until it's too late - give your machine a new lease of life now!

Are you still unsure whether a machine modernization is right for you? You may already find the answers to your open questions in our FAQ. You are also welcome to contact us directly - we look forward to hearing from you!

What retrofit solutions are available?

At Bäumer, you will find a wide range of retrofits to suit your machine and your requirements. We offer you solution packages for electrical or mechanical partial retrofits as well as for a complete electrical retrofit of your foam cutting machine.

How do I find the right retrofit for my machine?

Use our Retrofit Finder to find out which solution is right for you. Simply select the machine and year of manufacture and we will automatically show you the retrofits that are suitable for you.

When is the right time for a machine modernization?

The sooner, the better!! To avoid additional work and save costs, it makes sense to plan your retrofit in advance. For example, if you discover during maintenance that a replacement part will no longer be available in the foreseeable future, this is a good time for a retrofit. This way, you minimize the risk of failure and are always on the safe (and efficient) side.

Is a retrofit also possible at short notice?

Yes, retrofitting is also possible at short notice in the event of acute problems. We have our standard retrofits in stock for you and can also deliver overnight if necessary. Many of the components can then be installed by your technicians themselves. In the event of longer delivery times for a retrofit, we will provide you with a loan component to bridge the gap.

How much does a machine modernization cost?

That depends entirely on your machine and your retrofit. However, the retrofit is usually significantly cheaper than a new purchase and pays for itself quickly, as it directly increases the productivity and operational reliability of your machine. We will be happy to advise you personally and calculate the costs for your individual retrofit!
