Breathing new life and functionality into existing machines

+ Retrofit and re-drives

We're Specialists in the retrofitting and redriving of existing machines - whatever the manufacturer.

Our technical team are highly experienced in the retrofitting and upgrading of existing machinery to increase performance, improve functionality, provide longevity and remove obsolescence.

Often electronics become obsolete rendering a mechanically sound print station or screenline obsolete. replacing the drive and control system can breathe new life into your production line.

E+R took a relatively new Stork SPG SP5, Screenline and replaced the entire drive and control system to improve the operational efficiency and accuracy of the unit. This saved several million pounds in capital expenditure ensuring a much longer working life for the unit.
