Icon Retrofit – Provitec GmbH

Fast, reliable and sustainable modernisation of your plant and machinery using state of the art technology/

We carefully analyse your plant and machinery at the start of a retrofit project, drawing on any available electrical documentation, PLC programs and source code. In the absence of these, our specialists carry out a plant analysis directly on site. In general terms, it is important to find the best balance of costs and benefits on a measure-by-measure basis.

The aim of any retrofit measure is is to ensure that plant and machinery are as good as new post-upgrade and offer maximum production reliability while reducing costs through advanced and effective control technologyPlant downtime must be kept to a minimum during any retrofit. We achieve this through optimal design, by pre-testing all installed systems and with in-house simulation of automation processes. Thanks to our expertise and many years of experience in the areas of automation, production and manufacturing planning, we can ensure the fast, reliable and cost-efficient implementation of your solution.
