No machine is designed or meant to last forever, but that doesn't mean you have to send it to scrap. ProBal can offer an electronics upgrade to any existing dynamic balancing machine. Many times manufacturers will no longer offer service or support for aging equipment. We can take an existing balancing machine frame and attach new sensors, encoders, and drive systems.

When your system is outdated, becomes unreliable, or even completely stops working, buying a new machine to replace it isn't your only option. We can help you minimize disruption, frustration, and downtime by upgrading your electronics and controls. You get to keep your machine that you're already familiar with AND enjoy all the same technology and serviceability as a new machine.

At a fraction of the cost of a new machine, and far less hassle than buying a used machine, upgrading your existing machine is a fantastic option!

Call or email us today for a review of your machine and guidance on the upgrade options.

A retrofit for a balancing machine involves replacing sensors, encoders, computer, wiring, and motor drives with new components. ProBal can conduct an electronics retrofit on any mechanically sound dynamic horizontal or vertical balancing machine bringing new life to old frames. Many machines start to fail due to their aging electronics and a retrofit kit can keep you running for another decade or more!

What are the benefits of a dynamic balancing machine retrofit?

  • Economic alternative to purchasing a new machine
  • Modern electronics are more accurate and sensitive than worn out and out-of-date components
  • Retrofits can be done at the machine site eliminating the need for rigging and transport cost
  • The amount of time the machine or process is out of commission is dramatically less than delivery for a new machine
  • Lifetime warranty on core electronics and one-year parts and labor warranty on sensors and computer

ProBal has made a commitment to lifetime software updates to keep your machines current and accurate. Our support team is knowledgeable in a wide range of balancing applications and can assist with advising you on how to work with your specific type of parts. We will make sure you know how to get the work done that you have in front of you to current industry standards. Extend the lifespan of your balancing machines even if it’s from the 1950’s!
