A modern sheet metal working machine can be upgraded with new features and functions during its long lifetime. Prima Power's modular engineering philosophy allows many solutions for improving the performance and versatility and for increasing the automation level and so the upgrading of a machine or manufacturing systems even years after the original installation (every case has to be analyzed).
When new capabilities are added to the production technology already in use, it can cope with even more diversified production tasks and offer increased productivity. The planning and fulfilling of these possibilities is an essential part of Prima Power services.
