Rebuilding scenarios


We efficiently execute modernizations of existing lines trying to keep down times as low as possible. Modernization of a control system while maintaining control cabinet, electrical consumers or sensors just takes to switch-off the production plant for 2 to 3 days, meaning that it can usually be realized over a weekend. Thus, this results in no one or as maximum one day of actual shutdown of production.

Usually, we execute partial modernizations, extensions of aggregates and devices during ongoing operation. Our control is hot plugging capable with regard to hardware and software. As far as older hardware does not allow this possibility, we will most definitely find a solution to minimize interruption in production.

From the start, HMI 2017 software has been structured so that a complete exchange of operating interface, article management, order management or other control components can be executed without interrupting control circuits of the line. Preparatory works in the control system are executed without completely switching-off the line during ongoing operation.


Modifications and extensions

Despite the apparently lower effort in comparison with new lines, modifications and extensions are a challenge no less significant. The modification of existing systems, the implementation of new functions and devices require comprehensive technical knowledge the more so as we also look after systems that may possibly be non-marketable for some time; however still meet their objectives.

We do not dread upgrading and extending those systems. Naturally, we would like to provide advice on your way to a new, cost-effective and modern control.


Another technical and logistic challenge is the optimum integration of old and new technologies, the implementation of upgrades and improvements into existing systems. Demands for spare parts availability, increased requirements for quality management and quality certification, minimization of the risk of failures or the simple desire to benefit from the tremendously increased software and hardware possibilities that were developed in recent years alone – have in most of the cases compulsorily to be realized by a modernization of the plant and control technologies.

We support you in the development of cost-saving modernization concepts that we will immediately put into practice for you. Depending on the requirements and your propensity to invest, these might be partly or completely to be realized upgrades. Optionally, we will install only new control software or new control software incl. computer technology or a new PC control incl. new switchboards and fieldbus technology. Even older installations will come closer to modern manufacturing technology by a new operating surface and new PC technology.

New plants


In over 35 years of company history, AMT Automatisierungstechnik GmbH has automated more than 700 new plants. Practically all of our customers are regular customers; a significant number of them operate various lines with our control system at different locations and who will always come back to order new features or control systems for further lines.

The spectrum of lines automated by AMT Automatisierungstechnik GmbH ranges from small, one-row electroplating lines with just one transport device up to multi-row, multi-storey major plants with several dozen transporters, loading / unloading stations and peripheral handling devices. Even small manually operated lines without automatic material transport profit by the usage of a modern control system as offered by our company, resulting in production transparency, exactness of the process flow and traceability of the manufacturing processes.
