Is outdated technology jeopardizing your production safety? Upgrade now!

The faster technology develops, the shorter the life cycle of electrical components becomes. What does this mean for your production? On the one hand, the risk of discontinuation threatens the availability of spare parts and, in the worst-case scenario, can lead to significant machine downtimes. On the other hand, technical progress also offers completely new opportunities: benefit from more fluid and modern operating options and increase your efficiency!

Our control system conversion for your contour cutting machine ensures that you can work at the same level as a new machine. And it's very straightforward: as your original equipment manufacturer (OEM), we have detailed documentation of your machine and service history. You get everything from a single source – and can rely on a smooth retrofit process.

B-Flex: The easy way to a new machine control system

Ready for your upgrade? We keep the control system conversion for your contour cutting machine in stock, pre-assembled. Our technicians can therefore modernize your machine control system quickly and at short notice. Additional space is not required!

Our standard B-Flex control system conversion package includes:

  • A new switch cabinet including all necessary components
  • A new industrial PC with a 21.5-inch screen
  • The Windows 10 IoT operating system
  • An Intel Core i5 6440EQ CPU board

As the operation is very similar to the original interface, only brief training of your employees is required after the conversion. Technical support via remote maintenance (SOPHIE access) is available at all times.
