Retrofit stands for modernization of existing machines or equipment. Older machines usually come off worse compared to new machines with respect to productivity and operating consumables. The existing electrotechnical equipment, such as automation and drive technology, no longer correspond to the required safety standard and the state-of-the-art. On the other hand the well-proven mechanics of the smt machine is still in good condition.

In many cases the modernization of a machine is more economic than purchasing a new one. In order to avoid high investments for replacement and losses in production, smt offers retrofits of existing machines to the latest state-of-the-art.

  • switch cabinet
