One of Antrok’s key strengths is the retrofitting of existing – mostly older – systems. By replacing outmoded components with new, state-of-the-art technology, we bring tried-and-tested systems back up to date. The basic elements of the machine remain completely intact. The main advantage for our customers lies in upgrading and modernising their plants, which brings about an increase in productivity at significantly lower costs than a new purchase.
Retrofitting equipment has different objectives depending on the situation. The focus, however, is on increasing production volume by embedding older machines in modern IT environments or retrofitting automation technology. Retrofits are also useful when systems need to be converted to match modified product dimensions or when the potential for optimisation is evident, such as in the context of feeding, the efficiency of the machines used or energy consumption. Other areas reviewed by us within the framework of retrofitting include ergonomics and worker safety, which are subject to constant tightening due to evolving regulations.
