Even feeders need to stay up-to-date

That’s why we offer a wide range of modernization services: to bring new life to older Coperion K-Tron feeders. Our focus is not just on what is possible but what is practical.

Coperion K-Tron gravimetric feeders installed more than 10 years ago could benefit from a free, no-obligation modernization review. Many components, especially electronic parts, become obsolete over the years and are no longer available as spare parts. Alternatively, changes in your process or production procedures can also be potential triggers for modernization of your equipment.

The aim of our modernization packages for feeders is to maximize the productivity, availability and operational safety of your systems. Modernizing your feeders increases the availability of spare parts considerably. Integrating the latest weighing and control technology into your Coperion K-Tron feeding systems has a direct impact on product quality and extends the life of your equipment.

With state-of-the-art technology, your feeders can benefit from the latest developments to perform with maximum accuracy and consistency. In addition, targeted modernization measures can reduce downtime for repairs and service calls to a minimum. Instrument calibration can be eliminated and the system is less sensitive to external disturbances such as environmental vibrations.

The K-Link interface options enable simple and extensive integration into current system controls.

Coperion K-Tron offers a variety of standard modernization packages (see below). In addition, we create tailor-made proposals that are individually prepared to your needs. We grant one year warranty on all replaced new parts.
