Machine upgrades

Crabtree can help your business to grow by applying our extensive technical knowledge and design and manufacturing expertise to innovative new projects.

As the IP holder for Crabtree equipment we can draw upon decades of product insight to upgrade existing machinery, which can enhance your capabilities and allow you to offer new services in metal decorating and coating.

For Crabtree to provide the utmost in flexibility we’ve had to work with many clients around their existing infrastructure, assisting them in adjusting or developing what they already have – this experience means we can build machines around a clients’ requirements, skill level, budget and substrate.

This could include component upgrades such as raised infeeds, which remove the severity of the movement, allowing you to have more control at speed and in turn increasing your production speeds. Other examples of our work include:

  • Installing a four-colour line in six weeks on request
  • Converting a 10-year-old two-colour to a four-colour when a client's budget was limited
  • Migrating clients from conventional cure to UV
  • Enhancing existing equipment production speed and performance
  • Responding to urgent requests, sending 45 per cent of parts the same day

If you’re experiencing quality issues, slower print rates or want to discuss how an upgrade to your machinery can help you improve efficiencies and make cost savings – without having to invest in potentially expensive new machinery – we provide FREE assistance over the phone or via email, whatever the age of the line or your budget.
