Retrofits & Upgrades
Innovation is constant at ONLINE Engineering. With each system we create, we strive to ensure that we are exceeding your expectations.
While improved designs are standard on all new systems, we also want systems in the field to benefit from recent innovations. To do this, we are working to develop affordable retrofit kits. For more information about retrofits as they become available, use button below.
System Upgrades and Modification
From upgrading the pumps in a dispense system to redesigning an output to accommodate a new packaging system, our engineers are skilled at creating upgrades that will keep your system working for you.
RETROFIT & UPGRADE OPTIONS
Hepa Fan/Filter Unit
Replaces obsolete fan/filter unit on lines shipped prior to 2016. Increases primary filter longevity and eliminates cleaning of pre-filter.
Easy Clean Vacuum Manifold
Replaces the use of silicone sealant with a polyurethane o-ring and provides quick access to the central cavity. Significantly reduces the time required to recover from media aspiration and general maintenance.
Cam Style Breaker Bar
Eliminates station wear on the pivot bar’s fixed pins by replacing them with cam followers. Provides smoother motion and increases station longevity.
Provides constant and automatic tracking of the main conveyor belt. Retrofit will be customized to the existing equipment with independent controls for legacy systems and HMI integration for newer lines.
Individual Pump Control
Replaces synchronous pump drive with independently controlled motors, allowing for fine tuning of volume on each pump without mechanical adjustment.
Main Conveyor Drive Conversion
Replaces the drum style main conveyor drive with a drive roller and motor combination, significantly reduces cost and lead time of drive replacement and eliminates the need for drum roller lubricant. If the current drive is not located mid-line, relocation will simplify belt tracking.
Meniscus Generator Lip Seal
Replaces the o-ring style seal on the eccentric drive pins with a lip style seal, reducing the risk of media or cleaning fluids seeping into the meniscus drive assembly.
EZLoad™ Magazine Upgrade
Replaces existing fixed-front magazines with spring loaded gates, improving ergonomics by eliminating the upward reaching motion associated with loading dishes
Vacuum Generator and Feedback Sensor Upgrade
Replaces existing vacuum generator and potentiometer style vacuum sensor with updated components including push-button sensor control and digital display, simplifying the adjustment of setpoints.
Orientation Sensor Upgrade
Replaces existing optical proximity or legacy fiber sensors with updated fiber optic sensors, improving the consistency of orientation regardless of indicator type.
Reduced Lane Function
Allows for production to be run on half of the lanes of the system. Recommended for systems with six lanes or more. This is often preferred when running specialty or low volume production runs.
