SAFETY IN MACHINE OPERATION

Plant safety and machine safety are crucial for safe, trouble-free operation. For new machines and plants, safety  is guaranteed by a CE marking, but after many years of operation or a conversion, the question arises: 
How safe are your machines?


RETROFITTING OLD MACHINERY AND MAJOR CHANGES

In the retrofit training covering major changes, impact of interlinked machines, and documentation of retrofitting measures, you will receive the latest information on the CE declaration after retrofitting measures and will learn how to preserve the validity of the old certification so that recertification is not required.
