When you manufacture products in your own production facility, the “economy of scale” concept is paramount. You are investing significant amounts of company resources in equipment that should reliably do what you need it to. Machines should work efficiently and with minimal need for maintenance and repair if they are used and cared for correctly.
One of the most important ways to ensure smooth operation with your equipment is at the machinery setup and modification stage. That is crucial if you’re deciding to save money by buying used production equipment and modifying or retrofitting it to your needs.
SMB Machinery has been providing setup and modification services for more than 25 years. We are an industry-leading provider of used packaging and process equipment solutions, and we can help get your production up and running for the best chance of success.
Machine Setup and Modification
Purchasing pre-owned equipment means you may need to upgrade the equipment to modern electricals and automation controls if it was using older standards or ones different from your industrial requirements. SMB can guide you in bringing equipment up to code and safety requirements with their experienced team.
SMB will organize the setup and testing of used equipment in your facility that you need to produce new packages and sizes. We will ensure the correct setup of your machines by using the OEM’s change parts. This will minimize downtime and keep production rolling along to help you maximize ROI. We will also upgrade and convert your electrical systems with PLC upgrading, rewire and documentation services and voltage conversions.
Full Equipment Rebuild
When a full rebuild is required to meet your production needs, SMB will manage the process from start to finish, returning the finished machine to you in “like new” condition mechanically and aesthetically. We will evaluate and test bearings, chains, sprockets and shafts, and test and replace any electrical components as needed. All full rebuilds we complete are shipped with a six-month mechanical warranty and a 30-day electrical warranty.
