    Study and white paper: Retrofit in intralogistics

    Older logistics systems are reaching their limits when it comes to digitalization and networking. 38 percent of those surveyed in the Unitechnik study see this as one of the main reasons for a retrofit. The study results are based on a survey of over 100 participants from production and logistics. There are also practical reasons for modernization: 68 percent cite spare parts problems and 51 percent complain about too many faults. One in two (53%) are planning a retrofit, 27% of participants have already modernized - and the trend is rising.

    The advantages are obvious: the investment costs are lower compared to new plant construction and a significant increase in efficiency can still be expected. Outdated plant components can thus be brought up to the latest state of the art and become part of an overall digital strategy.
    The study can be downloaded here free of charge. Unitechnik has also produced a white paper on the same topic. It explains the results of the study and serves as a guide for a successful retrofit project. Benefit from practical examples and many tips from an experienced retrofit expert.
