To prevent unplanned downtime and ensure your machine's continued longevity, Instron’s system retrofits provide a comprehensive overhaul of your machine and replace many at-risk components. This update rejuvenates your system and can extend its life for years.
Many legacy components in the existing machine are replaced with current and modern hardware, ensuring that replacement components are immediately available should the need for service arise. The items that are replaced will be restored to Life Cycle Phase 1, ensuring minimal downtime should one of these more critical parts of the machine fail, as these items are fully serviceable and in current production from Instron.
