Machine Overhauling through reverse engineering
Last year’s European More4Core project showed 44% of the assets present in the North-West European industry will reach the end of their lifecycle within the next decade. Replacing all this machinery is financially unfeasible, while at the same time manufacturing plants would rather continue to use current installations. Prolonging the lifecycle therefore seems to be the magic word. But how to go about this?
Johan Tollenaere of Energetic Machinery in Stekene sees reverse engineering as a good place to start.
