All overhaul and modernisation work is carried out in Germany at the Arinstein production site in Berlin. When machine tool equipment is modernised, more than 75% of its units are replaced: CNC system, electrical equipment, drives, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, bearings, ball screws and rubber goods. At the same time, upgrade costs often represent 40-60% of the cost of a comparable new machine.
Many companies offer a shortened version of modernisation – replacement of the CNC system and electrical automation. However, practice shows that components that are not replaced with new ones, such as hydraulic hoses and hydro valves, have a limited lifetime and may need to be replaced in the near future. Another disadvantage of such modernisation is the lack of spare parts, many of which are no longer available.
When cooperating with customers, we offer modernisation only on the basis of modern components from leading manufacturers (Siemens, Rexroth, Parker, Hawe, Lapp, Igus, RSF, Sauter, Flender, etc.) with obligatory overhaul of the equipment. The starting point for the cooperation with the customer is a specification sheet in which requirements and desired results for the overhaul and modernisation are defined. The ARINSTEIN specialists assess the technical condition of the plant and agree the scope and costs of the work with the customer.
