Why Retrofit?

In the last 20 years more and more manufacturers and fabricators have opted for upgrading and retrofitting their existing press brakes instead of replacing, or buying new. 

Why? Because, on average, the cost of retrofitting an existing press brake is usually less than a third of the cost of purchasing a brand new machine that is comparable in quality and technology.                  

Why get rid of a press brake that is still structurally sound? After all, the steel frame is as good as day one, which only leaves the CNC and electronic aspect of the press brake needing replacement.

The cost-effectiveness of retrofitting an existing press brake has saved companies a great deal of money. The machine is now more reliable, productive and efficient, featuring the latest in press brake control technology and automation, without having to purchase a new machine.

So if you are contemplating upgrading your existing press brake, you are considering a very wise decision.

Evolution Machinery has close to 35 years of experience in the field of CNC press brake automation and service.
