For many people the investment in purchasing a new sizer cannot be justified, however if your old machine is basically sound, have you ever thought about upgrading it with a LYNX Retrofit package?
Lynx are the only sizer manufacturer that specialises in complete retrofits. Other manufacturers will be happy to sell you electronic upgrades but we understand that the mechanical and electronic components of a sizer go hand in hand. An electronic upgrade will help to highlight problems with your older equipment but you are then left with a sizer sporting flash electronics but still suffers from inaccurate weighing, mixed sizing, incorrect drop counts, fruit going over the end of the machine due to lazy gates etc etc. With 25 years in the industry, Lynx have a proven formula that works, giving excellent production increases to customers with equipment we have retrofitted. Over time Lynx has developed the tools to take you to the next level. We can undertake a retrofit to any stage that you can afford.
STEP 1: ELECTRONICS
Latest version Winlynx software & controller, 24v power supply, gate drivers, label interface & remote internet support.
STEP 2: GATES
Latest release gate solenoid assembly with bolt in adapter plate to suit existing pintrack.
STEP 3: SINGULATOR, CUPS & WEIGHING
Brand new 8ft singulator & soft transfer, new cups & weigh head package providing 4x point weighing accurate to +/- 1 gram.
ALTERNATIVELY – A FULL RETROFIT
This is the option that brings an old sizer up to date with a new chains, flight bars, singulator, weighing electronics & aluminium extruded top including pintracks. A full retrofit provides all the advantages of a brand new sizer at a fraction of the cost as the frame, cross conveyors & depending on condition, drive components are retained. Recently through careful planning & design, a 2 week retrofit of an 8 lane 35 drop sizer yielded a 45% throughput increase of over 100 bins per shift. The smile on the customers face told a story on the first day of packing as he realised the results of his decision.
