New Life for Old Systems Regardless of Make or Model

Changing business needs? New market demands? Aging technology? Dematic Modernization upgrades and modifies existing systems to the performance and functionality you need now.

Another key capability of Dematic Customer Service is our department dedicated to providing modernizations. Its mission is to extend the service life and functionality of Dematic and non-Dematic equipment with minimal disruption to operational schedule.

Modernizations are upgrades and improvements that can add years of life to components and entire systems. Specific benefits include:

  • Extend longevity and ROI of aging assets
  • Minimize future capital expenditures
  • Lower total cost of ownership
  • Add functionality
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Improve system availability

Within the modernization group, Project Managers, Engineers (Controls, Mechanical and Software) and Installation & Planning Coordinators are dedicated to revitalizing existing systems — an expert team that performs work on live, mission-critical systems with minimal interruption.

The process begins with a Modernization Audit where Dematic experts conduct a technical review of your equipment, controls, software and material flow. They look for areas of pending obsolescence, poor operation, and opportunities where new technologies and practice will return value.

Dematic has a wide range of products and services that can be customized to the need of each client. We focus on uptime and life cycle cost, and the benefits are not limited to Dematic products and systems.

Typical Modernization Programs:

  • New Equipment Controls
  • Upgrade/Replacement of Software Systems
  • Component Upgrade Kits
  • Equipment Replacement
  • Energy Management
  • Re-missioning Old Systems
  • System Expansions & Relocations
  • Safety Upgrades

For over 30 years Dematic has been modernizing and breathing new life into nearly every make and model of material handling systems. Our proven, low-risk methodology of analysis, design, plan and test has extended the value and productivity of systems throughout North America.
