CNC retrofittingCNC retrofitting restores machines to OEM performance levels and can even surpass the original capabilities of the machine at a significantly lower cost than buying a new machine.
For outdated CNC machines, updating to a newer control can add capabilities that the standard control was lacking.
For older machines that have mechanical wear, restoration to OEM Spec gives the machine better reliability and new life.
CNC retrofitting involves upgrading controls, replacing electronics, wiring, servos, and drives. CNC retrofitting is normally provided for machines that are still mechanically sound but have outdated or defective CNC or a manual machine that needs to be automated.
In both cases the benefits of CNC retrofitting are:Higher feed rate
Higher accuracy machining
Shop floor programming
Decreased set-up times
Data Exchange with networked PC's
Ability to store programs to increase flexibility
This pace of development affects computers of all types. But it is particularly striking on the floor of a machine shop. Here, evolving computer numerical controls (CNCs) meet machine tools whose structures have changed little since before these controls were introduced. The uneven rate of change often means that the machine tool remains mechanically sound and serviceable long after its control has been replaced by a newer released model. As a result, some shops find themselves saddled with inoperative machines, because the cnc is obsolete and replacement components can no longer be found. Still more shops use CNC machines which could be utilized more effectively if only the controls had access to the power and features of more recently developed models. One option is to buy an entirely new machine with a brand new control, and scrap the old machine entirely. However, another option is to retain the mechanical structure, and retrofit a replacement CNC.
