Upgrade and Retrofit Solutions

Nonwoven production lines are complex and diverse. They can process an extraordinary variety of fibers and materials to produce a wide range of products. With good care and regular maintenance, the machines and equipment have a very long service life. Machines and complete production lines from AUTEFA Solutions and the former AUTEFA in Friedberg (Bavaria, Germany), Fehrer in Linz (Austria), FOR and OCTIR in Biella (Italy) and Strahm Hi-Tex in Switzerland have been in use for decades. We provide our customers with valuable and cost-effective solutions and upgrades that enhance existing systems and allow them to adapt to ever-changing market conditions. Our modifications yield significant improvements in occupational safety, reduce work effort, increase process reliability, and minimize complaints.

Part wise integration of new AUTEFA Solutions machines in existing lines

Partial integration of new AUTEFA Solutions machines into existing production lines offers numerous advantages. One such advantage is that it allows individual machines in the line to be upgraded independently, without having to replace the entire line at once. This approach can help to minimize disruption to ongoing production and reduce downtime, resulting in improved productivity and efficiency.

The part-wise integration of new AUTEFA Solutions machines offers a cost-effective, flexible, and efficient way to upgrade and improve existing production lines, helping companies to remain competitive and meet evolving market demands.

The efficiency and safety of production operations can be greatly improved by upgrading the electrical systems of existing lines, particularly switchgear and drive systems.

We recommend upgrading your software to the latest available version. The new software version improve performance, enhance security, and provide access to new features and functionalities.

Modifying the HMI (Human-Machine Interface) of existing production lines, even those from different manufacturers, is possible and can offer numerous advantages such as increased efficiency, improved usability, enhanced functionality, and better data visualization.

Upgrading single machines in a production line independently can offer significant advantages. For instance, it allows for a targeted approach to upgrading specific components, making it possible to address the areas of the production process that require the most improvement. This can lead to better overall performance, improved efficiency, and increased productivity.

Energy assessments for existing lines and development of a conversion concept offer several advantages for companies looking to improve their energy efficiency and reduce their carbon footprint.  With our energy assessments we can identify areas where energy is being wasted and therefore  leading to potential cost savings. By implementing energy-efficient measures, such as replacing outdated equipment or optimizing building insulation, companies can reduce their energy bills and increase their profitability.

Conducting a safety assessment of an existing production line or machine and developing a retrofit concept offers significant benefits. We help identify potential safety risks and hazards so that preventative measures can be put in place. This improves workplace safety, reduces the risk of accidents and prevents injuries. Developing a refurbishment plan helps to modernise outdated equipment and technology, making the production process more efficient and effective. our experience shows that this leads to increased productivity, reduced downtime and improved profitability.

Conducting quality assessments of existing production lines and developing a conversion concept  offers significant advantages. We help to  identify areas of the production process where quality can be improved, allowing for targeted improvements to be made.  Customers appreciate the  higher quality of their products, increased customer satisfaction, and improved competitiveness.
