System Upgrade & Retrofit Services

At Industrial Indexing Systems, we have many years of experience with factory automation upgrades and retrofits.

As machinery ages, maintenance and repair becomes costly and, at times, impossible if spare parts are unavailable. When this happens, we have the knowledge of existing applications and offer support in upgrading and retrofitting outdated motion controllers, servo drives, and motors with current technology.


Our factory automation upgrade and retrofit services begin with an upgrade strategy, which includes research and designing pre-engineered packages. Older systems and equipment developed by Industrial Indexing Systems can be upgraded to the newest technology available and all software is completely transferable. We offer upgrade packages for hydraulic or servo driven blow molding, thermoforming, paper and film converting, and multi-needle quilting machines.

Upgrading and retrofitting to modern technology is a proactive plan to minimize downtime and decrease production losses. Upgrades increase system performance and will prolong the life of capital equipment.
