Expand the functionality and extend the life of your equipment


Many ABB products can be in service for 20 years or more, however when a product reaches the end of its lifecycle, ABB can help mills with a smooth transition to new software and equipment. 

Throughout the product lifecycle, we work to provide solutions that expand the functionality and extend the life of your equipment, while maintaining your core investment. As we advise papermakers on their technology needs, alternative solutions and emerging technologies, we also consider their future engineering needs. Based on existing requirements and lifecycle status, ABB migration teams recommend and develop timely, cost-effective solutions that effectively address evolving market opportunities and demands.
