Retrofitting with Berghof – as good as new, but much cheaper

The smart upgrade for the secure future of your production system, transport system or sorting system

Prevention is better than cure: Make your aging production system, transport system or sorting system fit for the future again – before an expensive equipment failure forces you to.

The ravages of time naturally also gnaw away at industrial automation solutions. This is because development is proceeding at a rapid pace, especially in this area. Important functional enhancements or urgently needed spare parts are therefore not or no longer available, even for many still fully functional systems.

It is risky, if you ignore this issue in the long term: There is then not only a threat of competitive disadvantages because production and maintenance costs can no longer keep pace with the best competitors. In extreme cases, this can even lead to - partial or complete - production stoppages, the financial damage of which can threaten the very existence of your company.

    The heart and brain of the vehicles of large conveyor systems, e.g. in the food or automotive industry.

Don’t let things come so far. Speak with us right here and now. And let Berghof bring your production system, transport system or sorting system back up to date with a retrofit concept individually tailored to your company.

You have properly read: It is NOT necessary to replace your entire system in the vast majority of cases – at least not at Berghof.

Because for us, the focus is always on the optimum solution from a cost perspective. This can also be the replacement of just a few components, such as only the control system(s). On the other hand, we can often incorporate existing technology such as control cabinets, cabling or drive technology into the modernized plant. This saves money and time.

Our experts support and take over the complete process of upgrading and retrofitting, so that your plant operates again with maximum efficiency at the cutting edge of automation technology: from analysis, product selection and project planning, to programming, installation, commissioning and training.

Often, a retrofit of the plant can even be implemented during ongoing operation. If not, we guarantee minimum downtimes of your production system, transport system or sorting system and take care of a cost-optimized implementation.

Ensuring compatibility with existing systems and mixed operation with old and new technology is a focus we place great emphasis on at Berghof.

In order to guarantee the retrofitting of further functions and to be able to react optimally to any situation, we also keep your old control system(s) available as a backup.
