An obsolete PLC is a weak link within your foundry. It only takes one obsolete part to break for a foundry to experience downtime. Spare parts often become difficult to source with age, and even if they can be found, the cost involved can make repairs a ‘false economy fix’.
While it can be possible to opt for like-for-like functionality when replacing a PLC, the latest models invariably offer a host of new features and functions, meaning a fresh approach can help foundries to improve diagnostics, troubleshooting, maintenance monitoring and data gathering, while also offering remote monitoring capability.
For ultimate peace of mind and maximum uptime, we always advise planning your PLC replacement in advance to ensure it takes place at a convenient time, long before any parts fail.
