As specialists for older Siemens automation systems (MMC 216, SIMATIC S5, SIMADYN D and C, COROS) we have the necessary know-how to modernize such old systems.

Substantial characteristic of our modernization strategy is that we implement the modification to a large extent during operation of the line. This is of great advantage to the customer because lengthy downtimes are avoided and production can be continued during the change phase.

For example the following modernization projects were realized without requiring additional downtimes apart from the plant stops planned anyway for normal maintenance work:

MMC - S7 parallel operation

  • MMC automation of a hot-dip galvanizing line
  • SIMATIC S5 and SIMADYN D-automation of a continuous galvanizing line
  • MMC material tracking of a continuous annealing and pickling line
