Machine Upgrades

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 molds efficiently by incorporating the latest technology and innovation.

As a result, we have developed machine upgrade packages for our HT3500, HT2000, C2, C3. MIDI, MR400 and ECO range of high-quality market leading preformers and extruders.

Barwell machines are so reliable and efficient that they eventually outlive most of the technology used in their control system, so control systems need to be addressed to ensure they can be supported and meet your requirements.

Machine upgrades are a simple and cost-effective way to make existing machines almost as good as new, and complete with up-to-date technology and safety features. This will often negates the need to purchase a new machine.

Benefits of upgrading:

  • Meet the latest international safety standards
  • Improvement in manufactured quality and accuracy
  • Easier operator control and usability
  • Increased production speed
  • Reduction of potential downtime
  • Less wastage
  • Cheaper replacement parts

What is involved in an upgrade?
Barwell’s highly experienced engineers can advise an appropriate upgrade and you will experience - for a relatively small investment - 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, enhance operator safety features, 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 continually rising cost of raw material.

Barwell upgrades also ensure that machine maintenance is simpler as outdated electronic components are replaced.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.

How to upgrade your Barwell?
To find out how Barwell can improve your machine and bring it to almost the standard of a new machine, please phone on 330-225-9557 or email us with details of your current machine.
