How things stand
"To date, all over the world, a REP injection moulding machine never shuts down due to an obsolete component missing.
We always propose replacement solutions or retrofits to allow for service continuity."
That our presses remain active thanks not only to the soundness of the technical solutions implemented, but also to:
- an original "all options" design that with the benefit of our retrofitting program ensures an on-going functional upgrading capability eliminating the threat of obsolescence
- monitoring press condition as provided for in our maintenance contracts
- where required, a policy of renovation designed to give the older presses a new lease on life.
