Many presses and other production machinery reach the stage where worn and/or obsolete components and equipment give rise to frequent breakdowns and loss of production. The basic machine framework maybe in "good health", but the sub-systems are worn out or obsolete.
In some cases the existing machine needs to be modified to accept more sophisticated multifunction tooling or handling systems.
This where MPPS can assist customers by undertaking a refurbish and/or complete upgrade and modernisation to improve functionality, increase productivity and reduce maintenance requirements.
In the case of mechanical presses the old design of mechanical clutch and brake units increasingly give rise to excessive friction lining wear and increasing maintenance costs and are best replaced by a "Clutch Conversion" to a modern combined Clutch/Brake Unit – see 'Clutch & Brake Conversions' page for further details.
MPPS has the ability and resources to upgrade existing machines and to adapt and convert them to suit the customer's new requirements – see 'Refurbishment & Upgrades' page for further details and examples of recent work.
