Field Upgrades

T-TEK's earliest projects included modifications to competitors palletizers done on the customers site with minimal downtime. These projects have varied over the years from replacing a processor to stripping a machine down to frame, repainting, and installing all new, upgraded components. It may be done to speed up a piece of equipment, upgrade the technology, run a new product, increase the safety, or improve the diagnostics. T-TEK has modified equipment originally built by many manufacturers including Alvey, Wyard, Production Automation (PAI), vonGal, Columbia, SECO, and many others.

Common Upgrades

Top of the Machine
T-TEK removes the divider, all pattern forming components and roller beds from your palletizer as it sits in your plant. We replace them with pre-fabricated, upgraded T-TEK components, wire them, test them, and run in production. This can be done in as little as 4 days of down time!
Hydraulic
T-TEK removes the existing hydraulic tank, hoses, and actuators from the machine in place and upgrades to our T-TEK Hydraulic System. This can be done over a long weekend.
Servo
T-TEK removes all hydraulic components and upgrades them to electric processes on site. The upgraded machine will be more consistent and handle a wider variety of product. If your plant has difficulties with hydraulics, our Servo Upgrade might be for you.
Depalletizer
T-TEK has upgraded a variety of manufacturer's depalletizers in the field. Modifications to the sweep system, hoist, processor, or matt can all be done in the plant.
Processor
We remove the old processor, clean the panel, run new wire where needed, and put back the latest appropriate processor. This can usually be done over a long weekend. This is a great way to extend the life of your equipment and get you in step with the technology cycle.
Safety
Many current pieces of equipment do not have up to date safety functions. T-TEK can review your current machine and upgrade it to current safety levels.
Remote Operator Panels
Touchscreen technology has come a long way over the past 10 years. Older machines with a one line display can be updated to touchscreens with more capability to share information to operators and maintenance personnel.
Pattern Additions
The lifeblood of manufacturing is the ability to change. New products are being created all the time and one may require capability that your palletizer does not have. T-TEK frequently reviews a wide variety of equipment for the ability to run new products and pallet patterns. We then add the needed pattern forming components, program and run on schedule.
