Increase Productivity, Decrease Risk – Upgrade to a New Control Cabinet.

It is time to upgrade your control cabinet

We would like to help reduce your risk of costly downtime while increasing your productivity and extending the life of your machine.

You have received this email because your Wintech machine is more than 17 years old and the control cabinet contains many obsolete hardware and software components.

As technology changes, components become obsolete, are no longer supported or become unavailable. The Wintech team has worked hard to stock parts to provide support and find backward-compatible solutions for these old systems as long as possible.


If your control cabinet looks like one of the earlier generations, Types A, B or C, we are no longer able to source the critical components that control your machine. The operating systems these cabinets were designed for are not compatible with the new Controllers or Motor Drives and likewise, the new operating system is not backward compatible with the old hardware. Should there be a failure of either critical system on your machine the result could be anything from a lack of accuracy through to complete machine failure.

Email us your machine Serial # and we will prepare a Replacement Cabinet proposal for you.


The Type D control cabinet which was supplied with machines in the approximate Serial No. range 290 to 360 is also nearing a moderate level of risk. Depending on the machine model and position in the Serial No range your existing cabinet may be compatible with the current STM32 Controller.

⇒ Email us your machine Serial # to enquire if your Type-D cabinet is going to need replacing.

The good news is that we can extend the life of your machine and build you a NEW cabinet with improvements to provide increased safety, productivity and a wide range of new features and benefits.

To ensure that your business does not suffer from costly downtime and loss of production we encourage you to schedule a cabinet upgrade.
