Retrofit and second-hand cutting machine service for EuropeESAB Cutting Systems is extending its refurbishment, retrofit and second-hand cutting machine services in Europe. A new facility based at the company’s Headquarters in Karben, Germany, is designed to offer customers in mainland Europe cost-effective alternatives to investment in new cutting machines.

As part of the refurbishment services, all the critical machine components of an existing machine can be renewed to enhance machine performance, safety and accuracy. Part of a refurbishment can include the retrofit of, for example, a Vision 51R CNC control system. This will give a new lease of life to an existing machine, with a number of packages available as drop-on replacements for old, unsupported control systems.

Vision 51R offer major productivity and operational advantages by minimising downtime, offering faster processing speeds for graphics, shapes and calculations as well as for all nesting and standard shape cutting programs. Increased nest and parts storage memory is a major advantage whilst there are also more communication options with off-line programming systems.

ESAB Cutting Systems provides a range of Vision 51R retrofit packages as well as full service and spares support. Further enhancements on drives and processes can be retrofitted at a later date. Users will therefore continue to get the most from both the control system and the cutting machine well into the future. Retrofits can also often be carried out on-site.

For those companies looking for a fully refurbished second-hand machine, both Karben in Germany and Andover in the UK have a continually changing stock of machines.
