Commercial, industrial and defense sectors all have certain products that have functioned well but have remained in use far beyond their anticipated life projections. When this happens, the technology used in the design often becomes so outdated that components necessary for maintenance become unavailable.
Instead of dealing with the hassle and risk of locating maintenance parts on the secondary markets, it makes sense to evaluate the aging product or system and design a “drop-in” replacement. Unlike designing a new product, the redesign of a legacy system is typically a low-risk moderate-cost endeavor as long as sufficient documentation is available.
In those cases where documentation is insufficient or non-existent, a Reverse Engineering effort might be required – depending on the complexity of the product. Call us today to discuss extending the useful life of your products or systems.
