Bühler Leybold Optics retrofits and upgrades

Retrofits or upgrades nowadays represent a very economical means to achieve lower downtimes and reduced running costs. Bühler Leybold Optics has long been specialized in offering retrofits – even for non-Bühler Leybold Optics systems. Bühler Leybold Optics offers various machine upgrades and retrofits to improve the productivity of old systems for which components are very expensive or do no longer exist.

We offer upgrades for ophthalmic optics, precision optics, optoelectronics, web and large-area coating machines.

Our range spans upgrades for operating systems (Window XP to Windows7) for the industrial PC, and the exchange of coating sources or plasma generators to full refurbishment of a complete system consisting of a new generation of PLC, switch cabinets, water and compressed-air distribution. A large variety of customized retrofits or upgrades are available, ask your local Bühler Leybold Optics partner or our specialists.

Your benefits from retrofits or upgrades are savings on capital expenditure, performance improvements through new technology, and faster cycle times. Problems such as poor spare parts availability for older machines are solved following a retrofit for which we then also guarantee ongoing spare parts availability for retrofitted machines.
