Refurbishing / reconditioning of Tetra Pak® filling machines & downstream

As an owner of Tetra Pak® filling equipment you are striving to keep your machines in perfect techncial condition at all times. Should you decide to have your Tetra Pak® machinery undergo a partial or full scale refurbishing mission we are able to assist. Your machines shall be disassembled to their bare machine structures and then build up again. All steel parts are cleaned, shot blasted, coated with special antirust and finally repainted. Depending on the project scope we shall replace all major machine mechanical and electronic parts with genuine Tetra Pak® spare parts. Machines sections and single parts which are still in good condition can be reused or reworked before re-installation in order to save time and costs. Upgrade kits and format conversions will be installed during the entire refurbishing mission. Missing parts, for instance hand rails and platforms, are produced at our factory and then fitted onto the machine. Refurbishing missions of Tetra Pak® machines are usually carried out at our factory in Magdeburg, Germany.
