Modular standard conversion IS-M

Technology, in particular control technology, is progressing at an ever-increasing pace. Yesterday’s computer is old today, and tomorrow it will already be out of date. After a certain time, spare parts are no longer available, dramatically jeopardizing production reliability. Control engineering and mechanical systems are improving from generation to generation, offering new opportunities for improving efficiency and quality. A new retrofit concept for older IS-M vertical cutting machines is available and in stock now for machines from the year 1984.

Reduced machine downtime

Renewed access to replacement parts

Full utilization of existing material

Excellent value for your money

Turn old into new: Modular standard conversion

Retrofit solutions bring your machine back up to date and make your units even more powerful. The investment pays off within a short period of time, since retrofits improve the productivity and operational reliability of the machines.

The new IS-M modification is split into four partial retrofits that are available individually or as a complete conversion package. The new complete conversion package consisting of steps 1-4 offers you a price advantage of up to 40% compared to the previous complete package. Your technicians can install the retrofits themselves.

From partial to complete retrofit

Step 1: Stop drive replacement

The old DC controllers are no longer available as replacement parts and are replaced by a frequency controller with a maintenance-free asynchronous motor.

After[Translate to English:] Erneuerung Anschlagantrieb

Step 2: Unit drive replacement

The old and no longer available DC controllers in this case are also replaced by a frequency controller with a maintenance-free asynchronous motor.

After[Translate to English:] Erneuerung Aggregatantrieb NEU

Step 3: SPS replacement

If your IS-M is still controlled by a type A0444 or A120 AEG SPS, replacement parts have not been available since 2015, and faulty parts will result in the machine downtime.

An IS-M retrofit includes a new and updated SPS S1200 by Siemens.

Step 4: Panel replacement

A new panel with touchscreen controls is installed on the existing or a new stand. Operation very much resembles the old system, meaning that no training is required after the retrofit.

After[Translate to English:] Erneuerung Panel NEU

In addition, the “knife protector and grinder” conversion is possible.
