Upgrading / modernization of old plants & machines - mechanics remains, control and/or sensor technology new.

Retrofit advantages:

  • Extending the service life of the machine
  • Reduced downtime
  • Legal compliance
  • Lower production costs through monitoring
  • Acquisition of process and machine data
  • Control from the control station, from a distance
  • Predictive maintenance possible

Retrofit kit

  • Your old machine will be equipped with a retrofit module from creative BITS
  • This allows access to all essential key figures (freely definable)
  • The machine can be integrated into a production process
  • Constant monitoring of production costs, operating performance, condition of the equipment, ...
  • Faster changeover times,
  • Quality control, logging, monitoring
  • Proactive maintenance intervals by predicting possible malfunctions
  • Reduction of unplanned downtimes
