Have your process and production needs changed since you have received your EKP?

Maillefer Services can help Customers to modify the method of reel handling, reel sizes, wire size or some other functions in the EKP which are different or are missing now from the equipment.

Are you having difficulties to get spare parts or tech support for your EKP?

In case your 20 - 30 years old but faithful EKP still has the original PLC and analogical DC-drives it is highly recommended to replace those obsolete items with modern technology to secure spare parts supply and technical support for the EKP, when required.

Are you having availability difficulties due to an unreliable EKP and need to improve its performance?

The overall effectiveness of an equipment decreases with time as systems become worn and outdated or operating standards drop below the optimum levels. Shortcuts, substitutes, and work-around are often used in an effort to maintain functionality. This results often in lost time, lost production, and unsafe conditions.

Through an equipment electro-mechanical refurbishment, which includes a new control cabinet, our Maillefer manufacturing facilities helps you restore the equipment to original performance levels and allows you to meet your availability and reliability requirements once again. Suffer no more from random machine failures due to unreliable operation of the worn mechanics and aged electrical components.  In order to minimize your line downtime, Maillefer can also offer you a spare machine throughout the time your EKP unit is being upgraded with new components and parts.
