Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/14/2016 -- At the heart of a material handling system are its control and its mechanical parts. viastore Systems recently released an information guide on retrofitting and modernizing businesses' material handling processes. When the control technology starts to show its age, the availability of the system will decrease, and spare parts will no longer be attainable. The outcome, unscheduled downtimes, failed deliveries, production halts, and annoyed customers. Viastore Systems modernizes the control systems step by step. Often the new and old system will work in parallel, with clearly defined back up strategies. The change over to the new system is done on the weekend, during scheduled downtime, or during working hours. viastore's experienced project managers ensure smooth and speedy implementation. The benefit is more dependability and better performance.
Businesses will realize many benefits when using viastore to modernize:
- System downtime
- Rising maintenance costs
- Cost-intensive spare part supply
- Lack of spare part availability shorter servicing intervals
- Increased incidence of faults
- Rising energy costs
- Ergonomic and social aspects
