55% of the industrial machines produced in the USA, have been manufactured during the floppy drive era, according to Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System US (data retrieved from FRED – period 1976 – 2016).

Many of these machines are more durable than the machines produced in our days and they are still working. However, floppy data exchange drives are easily spoiled in an industrial environment. Without working floppy drive, using the machine is complicated or even impossible.

Unfortunately, the biggest problem is that the floppy drives are difficult to find, as they are not produced anymore.

Instead of making huge investments for new equipment you can easily replace your old floppy disk drive with fast, easy to use and reliable USB emulator.
