Retrofit for Future
New investment or retrofit? Many producers raise this question during these days. For some of them in times of fast changing market situations an upgrade of existing machinery may present less risks than an investment in new machinery.
“Securing the machine’s functionality and spare parts availability represents a key issue when thinking about retrofit”, explains Jan Ebener, head of sales of GEORG machinetools. “However a sustainable decision between retrofit versus new investment must be regarded under various aspects and the individual circumstances and conditions of the customer have to be carefully considered.
For quite some time GEORG machinetools supports its customers in finding the right solution. And being advised by a supplier who can offer both possibilities an objective customer advice is granted.
Carl Krafft & Söhne took this advantage. At the occasion of EMO Hannover this customer who is specialized in the manufacture of rolls, rotation-symmetrical components and machinery parts placed his order for the modernization of his existing turning lathe.
The scope of supply includes besides the replacement of the electrical equipment a new machine control type SIEMENS 840 D Solution Line and a complete new carriage side with machine bed and machining carriage. Finally Carl Krafft & Söhne will receive a strong fully operational turning lathe for turning diameters up to 3,000 mm, center length 15,000 mm suitable for workpiece weights up to 30 to.
“At the end it’ s always nice to see a competitive product on which we have put the stamp of GEORG’s quality”, says Jan Ebener. “Also on those of our competitors.”
Georg supports the expansion of the EasyCore service center
Our customer EasyCore is an up-and-coming service center in Turkey that wants to significantly increase its possibilities and capacities by investing in a GEORG precisioncut TBA 400 ecoline. The customer visited us for the preliminary acceptance of his machine and was trained by us on his new investment. We are proud to support EasyCore in the expansion of their service center.
Aperam Guegnon, a global player in stainless and electrical steel, has signed a contract with our service team to equip an over 20 year old GEORG slitting line with a new slitting shear. We are looking forward to a good cooperation.
LTC relies on Georg robotline technology.
This year Georg comissioned two GEORG precisioncut TBA 400 robotlines at LTC in Italy successfully. The lines produce fully automatically complete transformer cores up to 1700mm lamination length and up to 440mm lamination width.
