  Good Reasons to Retrofit

  • Existing Machine size, use, quality and versatility not found on a new machine at any price.

  • Continuous machining, No hesitation. Smoother machine action, Faster rapids, Faster feedrates
  • Much easier programming, More programming features.
  • PC based, easy to update, easy to add-on accessories.
  • Software updateable, Never becomes outdated.
  • Use new CNC features not available with old control such as Digitizing, Engraving, 4th axis and Probing.

Turn a classic NC mill back into a workhorse!

Many old NC machines are made out of superior US cast iron and have excellent mechanics. The old NC machines often used large US made ball screws and quality support bearings. These old machines are rigid and heavy duty. The problem is the old NC control! By now, the old electronics are troublesome and parts are hard to come by if not impossible. Adding to the problem is the fact that even when the old controls were new they were very limited in their capabilities and NOT very user friendly.

Sometimes just finding a comparable new machine to your original is next to impossible. They just don't make'm like they used to. The rigidity and strength in some of these old machines is just unmatched. Retrofitting gives a classic machine a new lease on life.
