Machines in educational establishments are often not used as much as their equivalents in production environments, resulting in older machines continuing to be used for longer. Older machines still fitted with their original guards and safety-related control systems – or even those upgraded at some point in their working lives – might therefore have safeguarding measures that are not up to current standards. However, mechanically these machines may still have years of life left in them.
We can advise you whether it is possible to refurbish and/or upgrade your existing equipment as a cost-effective and environmentally friendlier alternative to buying new.
Examples of upgrades include new guarding, tooling, electrical components and re-paint. So don’t write-off your old equipment – contact us to find out if we can give it a new lease of life and save you money in the process.
