INNOVATION THROUGH AUTOMATION

Weld Upgrades & Retrofits

Upgrading and Retrofitting Your Welding Operation

Automation and welding technology are advancing with new features and capabilities every day. Newer technology has the potential to improve equipment reliability, weld quality and overall throughput for your operation, with an incredible return on investment (ROI) for your business.

Upgrading and retrofitting a welding system can improve its performance, efficiency and safety. However, it is not a simple task and requires careful planning and execution. Some of the steps involved in upgrading and retrofitting a welding system are:

  • Assessing the current state of the welding system and identifying the areas that need improvement or replacement
  • Choosing the appropriate upgrade or retrofit options based on the welding system’s specifications, requirements and budget
  • Obtaining the necessary equipment, materials and tools for the upgrade or retrofit project
  • Installing, testing and calibrating the new or modified components of the welding system
  • Documenting the changes and updating the maintenance and operation manuals

Midwest Engineered Systems can help you make the decision to replace, upgrade, or re-purpose existing welding automation components easily by upgrading only the obsolete components while retaining the functional equipment. We can also provide part and system programming for new products on your existing robot welding system.
