More and more companies prefer the modernization of an existing cylindrical grinder over the purchase of a new machine. The reasons why are various in nature: Firstly, many companies swear by the rugged design of older machines and, secondly, they often achieve similar, if not higher, quality with a retrofit - at significantly lower costs.

Benefits of an M.+M. Mai Retrofit Solution

A cylindrical grinder restored by M.+M. Mai can easily compete with a new machine in terms of precision. Finally, all of the mechanics as well as the control and drive technology are renewed with a retrofit. The overhauled machine meets all current safety standards. The advantages of the old machine, such as its robust design and easy operation, are retained. The following reasons speak in favor of modernization over buying new:

  • Lower costs

    A completely overhauled machine comes very close to a new machine in terms of wiring, but costs much less.

  •  No need for conversion

    Your employees don’t need to change to a new machine, but can continue to work seamlessly with the old machine.

  • Environmentally friendly solution

    Since many components from the old machine can still be used in a retrofit, the number of parts that must be disposed of is reduced.

  • Fast resumption of production

    Through a quick and professional overhaul, the downtime of the old machine is kept low.

  • Reusable components

    Accessories and operating tools of the old machine can also be re-used after the retrofit.
