        Retrofitting and overhauling

        After several years in operation a machine loses accuracy and productivity which affects the economic efficiency of the production. This is where WEMA VOGTLAND steps in. Experienced specialists and different service offerings make the machine fit for the second half of its operating life, no matter what the task is - from a mere overhauling to a complete retrofitting, i.e. a modernization comprising new components such as new controls, automation or tool handling.
      • Special Machines

      • Particularly engineered for your component

        In the framework of re-tool projects but also as new stand-alone solutions we offer customized special purpose machine tools based on a modular concept.

        Rotary table machines, rotary transfer machines, transfer lines and custom-designed special-purpose machines – all these machine types are designed and manufactured on demand, always tailored to customer’s individual needs. They are designed for large and mid-scale production and can be used in flexible machining systems.

        In permanent close co-operation with our customers we do not only work out problem solutions, but invest in new patented technologies which are often a result of joint development.

        An excellent example for this approach is the Linetec machine developed by SVQ GmbH. From the beginnings of a lineboring fixture to a complete, fully automatic machine for precise lineboring of cylinder heads in a micron range. A proven solution which has since been sold to customers worldwide.
      • Relocation

      • WEMA VOGTLAND Technology GmbH relocates machines in combination with the necessary overhaul or rebuild activities, no matter whether it is a single machine or a complete manufacturing plant. Based on our broad logistic know-how proven in many successfully completed projects we can offer even relocations of complete manufacturing plants.
      • Fixtures for metal cutting manufacturing

      • Optimum clamping of the workpiece is one of the most important factors of the machining process. SVQ GmbH as a leading fixture company with many years of experience and own engineering, manufacturing and assembly resources in Germany and China offers customized clamping solutions, whether it’s for a new investment or the modernization of existing equipment.

        • Retrofit 4.0

        • In the light of the megatrend Industry 4.0 the GLOBAL RETOOL GROUP jointly with a partner from the software industry developed the concept Retrofit 4.0, a complete package consisting of hardware, a software product and a retrofit service package which is aiming first of all at existing manufacturing plants.

          The GLOBAL RETOOL GROUP as a retrofit and automation specialist with the relevant PLC and data base programming skills and the hardware know how for the necessary sensor systems takes over the retrofitting of the required measuring and control equipment.

          The software tool allows collection of the data, processing them in a usable manner and visualizing them accordingly. Thus decision-makers are provided at the right moment with relevant information. Plan deviations are recognized at an early stage, optimization potentials are identified and evaluated easily and efficiently.

          In addition, the tool can be used for the precise planning of servicing and maintenance activities. The goal is to replace the traditional predictive maintenance by a „maintenance on demand“ where the machine itself gives an alarm as soon as it requires maintenance or inspection.
