First Step: An Audit of Your Production Equipment

We first conduct an audit of your VMI installations to identify obstacles in your production performance and ways to remove them. Our technicians specialize in conducting audits for  industrial production lines for both bakery products (continuous mixers, automated batch mixing systems) and health products (cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, fine chemicals) and will work with your teams to find the best solution. At the end of our documented diagnosis, you will have a clear action plan to increase the lifespan of your equipment.

We prepare a methodology and a schedule for on-site intervention based on your team’s availability and your production requirements. We can perform the intervention while the line is in operation or at a standstill.

Our Expert Technician carries out an in-depth analysis of the mechanical, electrical, and automation aspects of your mixing or kneading line. This analysis includes the history of errors on your machine, maintenance schedules, and production records. He gives you detailed recommendations and offers concrete solutions. 

At the end of the audit, our experts assist you in implementing the recommended solutions. Your teams or our VMI experts carry out the following steps.

Second Step: The Retrofit Service

Technology is constantly evolving, and that unfortunately accelerates the obsolescence of some industrial machine components. To meet the challenges of your production, VMI offers a wide range of custom modifications to upgrade your equipment.

VMI’s retrofit service allows you to optimize the performance of your mixing equipment to make it more reliable. Benefits include:

  • Reducing maintenance costs.
  • Limiting production downtime.
  • Securing process continuity.
  • Gaining flexibility and productivity.
  • Upgrading your installations to reach the level of the current safety standards
  • Improving working comfort for team members

We can add new functionalities in all areas: mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, automation and software. Depending on the situation, upgrading your equipment can be an alternative solution to replacing the machine entirely. Our engineers help you set up a solution that’s adapted to your unique needs and environment.
