Modernization of machine tools

with the latest control and drive technology

We offer you an enormous increase in your productivity through modernization and conversion to CNC controls and the latest drive technology.

Modernization is usually an inexpensive alternative to purchasing a new machine tool. It is usually worth converting a robust old machine, even if it has been in service for a number of years or decades.

A machine tool that has been modernized by us is equivalent to a comparable new machine. However, the cost of modernization is significantly lower than the cost of a new machine tool with the same performance. And delivery times are usually significantly shorter, as many elementary components do not have to be newly manufactured. The machine body of older machines in particular is very robust and can be used almost indefinitely. It also accounts for a large part of the manufacturing costs.
