Retrofit – Modernizations for highest demands

What does Retrofit mean?

In addition to to the project planning of new ECM machines, stoba Customized Machinery also offers the modernisation of older systems - for our own machines as well as for third-party products. Our experienced engineers and technicians use their extensive know-how in machine tools from a wide range of manufacturers to replace existing machine and system parts with more modern and productive components. This can involve generators, the machine's control system, the electrolyte circuit and much more. Thanks to this process, machines and systems are brought up to the latest state of technology - a machine overhaul with added value, because the constant new acquisition of expensive machines becomes superfluous!


Advantages of retrofitted machines

The technical overhaul of your machines by our Retrofit Team has many advantages: 

  • Integration of current components
  • Adaptation of the safety technology to the current status
  • Comprehensive in-house engineering for software, hardware and mechanics
  • Extensive safety inspection of the overhauled system by stoba experts with many years of experience, which ensures the greatest functional safety
  • Creation of new CE with documentation
  • Competent implementation of training including documentation
  • Comprehensive service and support by our employees, from quotation to commissioning

More efficiency through system modernisation

By overhauling old machines as part of our Retrofit Service, we turn your existing machines into powerful systems which ensure greater efficiency and higher productivity in production - and that at significantly lower investment costs than if you replace the machine. Your machine will be retrofit to ensure it can keep pace with new machines of the latest state of technology. As a reliable partner at your side, we also carry out the optimisation as is best for your company and in compliance with your individual requirements. A detailed cost-benefit analysis, the comprehensive know-how of our experts and many years of experience in the areas in CNC control, lathes, maintenance and general retrofitting, among others, help us to modernise your systems exactly according to your wishes and to carry out a system modernisation that perfectly matches your application.

Production of new workpieces through machine retrofitting

Bringing your used machine up to date with Retrofit not only has the advantage of making your work more effective - we can even retrofit your machine so that you can produce completely new components with the overhauled machine. Whether respective extensions are possible, naturally depends on the type of machine and must be evaluated individually. Thanks to our team's many years of experience, however, our customers can be sure that they will receive professional, sound advice in this regard and that we will  develop a suitable concept for the machine overhaul individually in each case. 

Extended operational life of machines through Retrofit

The calculation is actually quite simple: If we overhaul, modernise, convert or upgrade your system, it is significantly less expensive than if you purchase a new machine. Because a general overhaul is naturally associated with lower costs than the purchase of a completely new product. And there also is no need for time-consuming research into the right supplier and the appropriate features. Delivery and set up of the new production machines and removal of the old machine do not have to be organised.

Retrofit machine vs New machine

Digitization continues to progress and Industry 4.0 places great demands on producing companies. There is usually no way around system modernisation. Compared to the purchase of a new machine, our machine retrofit makes this step easy for you: Retrofitting makes your production fit for the digital future and as a result has the same advantages as a new acquisition, for example:

  • Possibility to produce new workpieces or components
  • Increase the capacity of the machine
  • Secure and accelerate processes
  • Overall strong increase of performance of production system
