Machine modernisation

Modernising machines and production lines

Machine modernisation is a way to modernise existing production lines and machine tools to meet today’s requirements. Our core areas of expertise are automation modernisation and upgrades that provide the customer with the latest industrial automation and safety technology available while functionality and efficiency will be substantially improved. Our solution also includes the required mechanical design and safety engineering.

Paper industry’s roll grinding and giant trimming machines are examples of great improvement in machining accuracy thanks to modernisation.

Machine modernisation and related services

Support and life cycle services we deliver:

Siemens SINUMERIK control

We use well-known and reliable Siemens Sinumerik technology, specifically equipped with the Sinumerik 840D sl, Sinumerik 828 D and Sinumerik 808 controllers. Sinumerik controls have a long life cycle and large global network of suppliers that provide extensive maintenance services.

Roll grinder

The customised roll grinding control product is specifically designed to modernise old roll grinders. The control can also be connected to old analogue drives if maintaining them is considered economically practical. The system is capable of utilising various types of roll measuring device structures. We can also provide our own fully automated roll measuring device for customers who would like to optimise the productivity and quality of their own roll grinding.


We provide safety, risk analysis and CE marking services for machine tools, manufacturing cells and machine lines while taking into account the requirements of the Machinery Directive. We perform the risk analysis required for the machine rebuild and the possible CE marking process either on behalf of or together with the customer. Our experienced designers help evaluate the necessary security measures and design a cost-effective as well as reliable solution.
