Retrofit for Future

Carl Krafft & Söhne

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.”

Successful commission of TBA400 at Lemi

TBA400 with high-speed configuration at our long-standing customer Lemi Trafo JSC.

Together with one slitting line which was put into operation a few weeks ago, the new TBA400 expands Lemi's machine park and supports their growth strategy.

The benefits of pin stacker technology for the distribution transformer production can also be gained from a Transformer Magazine article 'Demand driven core production' we published recently.

Finally, a special congratulations to our technicians and also to our customer’s employees for carrying out the commissioning in record time.
