Barwell Global, leading manufacturer of rubber processing machinery, is offering low investment machine upgrade packages to Barwell owners to improve manufactured product quality, ease operator control and reduce running and maintenance costs due to less wastage, cheaper replacement parts and enhanced usability.

When customers purchase a Barwell they benefit from a lifetime of reliability and support, part of this commitment is to ensure that older machines are continually improved enabling processors to produce high quality moulds efficiently by incorporating the latest technology and innovation. As a result, Barwell has developed machine upgrade packages for their HT3500, HT2000 and ECO range of high quality market leading preformers and extruders.

Stephen Grocott, Managing Director of Barwell Global explains the background behind the programme, “We understand, especially in today’s economic conditions that customers cannot afford to spend vast amounts of money on new machinery, but Barwell machines are built to last a lifetime so this is not always necessary. However, we need to ensure that we can effectively support our machines to keep production and quality levels high whilst reducing on-going maintenance costs and avoiding potential downtime. Our new selection of upgrade packages tick all these boxes”

For a relatively small investment, Barwell’s highly experienced engineers can advise an appropriate upgrade so that you will experience instant benefits and long-term peace of mind.

Improvements range from enhanced hydraulic and electronic control systems, large displays for simpler operation and control including increased functionality, flash card memory for safe product and cycle storage, integral automatic weighing and adjustment - resulting in reduced human intervention, quicker production, improved accuracy and reduced material wastage. Reduced wastage is particularly important with the continual rising costs of raw material.

Barwell upgrades also ensure that machine maintenance is simpler as out dated electronic components are replaced. This means that all replacement parts are readily available, ensuring downtime is minimal, and that fitting is easier and at a fraction of the cost.

The Barwell commitment to the customer is a fundamental part of their reputation of providing high quality, competitive machines supported with expert maintenance, advice and care.
