itle of this article shall be measured by a company of not more than one. When this choice turns out to be difficult, the burden of responding often falls on us. When would the repair of the machines be indicated, and when to fully modernising the whole line? When dealing with one and the other area of activity, we can bring them a little closer to the reader.
What we call in this context “modernising” is simply the construction of a series of machines from scratch-however, upgrading also means overhauling machines already present in the plant. In each of these cases, it is all about modernizing, minimising failure and maximizing efficiency and efficiency.
Acquiring a new machine or the entire production line is often a great challenge; Not only in budgetary terms. It is also about the full technological compatibility of the cooperating devices. The maximum efficiency and efficiency of machines with minimized service and operating costs must be reconciled with each other.
There are no shortage of companies that look forward to the fact that the equipment being acquired is susceptible to the possible expansion of its functions. This far-reaching look favours Remal, offering competitive solutions based on technological innovation. Temporary and provisional is our common foes.
That’s why we almost always offer options that are not hermetically sealed for extension in terms of various functions. However, it is not uncommon that, due to financial reasons, a given machine must be completely personalized under precise demand. The company should then bear in mind that potential expansion will entail higher costs.
If we decide to extend the functional line/machine in the phase of its use, it does not have to pardon the work of the plant by disabling it from exploitation. However, this is necessary if the equipment manufacturer has not reserved this option. In this case, the budget is absorbed not only by the renovation works, but also by the losses resulting from the “unemployment” of the machine undergoing improvement. While we strive to prevent side effects, similar situations often show that total line reconstruction is the least problematic option-despite the goal of a considerable financial effort. It is, for this reason, that reconcying the existing machine with the new one, sometimes involves faults in communication. The control systems of a series of equipment may sometimes not find a “common language”.
In contrast, replacing the control system with a new one does not necessarily promote the desired accuracy or speed of the machine if the operating components are not listed. So it is quite clear that the modernisation is more comprehensively, the more powerful the risk of unwelcome complications decreases.
Of course, the machine waiting for the expansion of the function, must first undergo a scrupulous review. The process of its work in the current state must be monitored; Then it is compared with the hardware specification, which assumes the correct functioning of the device. All this minimizes future incompatibilities, but requires time resources.
Often, the age of the equipment-although it does not qualify for the museum-gives itself to know the repetitive and more frequent faults. For the same reason, the market is vain to look for spare parts, even because the drive is obsolete with the size of several generations. Is it worth the time to decide on the renovation?
Well-very often we meet with situations, when the opposite happens, and it is the employees of Remal advise against replacing the equipment with a new, proposing renovation. A lot depends on the professional assessment of the condition of the machine, which began to refuse obedience. It is sometimes the case that a modern control system gives you the opportunity to resurrecting the original hardware capabilities, without compromising any valuable functions.
Moreover, with the help of modern propulsion technologies, these possibilities can even be picked up. If we replace all critical components-such as control systems, propulsion, control-the machine is able to regain the old abilities with a considerable vowing. It is quite surprising how much you can refresh the equipment, which apparently seems to be already a hopeless case.
It is therefore clear from the foregoing that the choice of one of the modernisation options should be consulted by specialists. In Remal, we have a richly documented experience in the renovation of whole machines, but also partial repairs and comprehensive reconstruction of the line. This applies to the entire cross-section of industries, from metallurgy to energy, to mining and the wood industry.
