Giddings and Lewis Horizontal Boring Mill CNC retrofit

Giddings and Lewis 5" 350T Horizontal Boring Mill CNC retrofit upgrade.

This G&L 5" 350T boring mill belongs to KD Machine in New Castle, PA. The shop purchased it used for $125,000 in 2013 and had it retrofitted by Bill Myers of CNC Services East, Monaca, PA, who installed a new Centroid M400 CNC control along with new axis servo motors. Kenny, owner of KD Machine says the boring mill has already paid for itself and "its so easy to run even I can do it" Featured in Modern Machine Shop here to read the article..

The 350T G&L is the newest addition to the Horizontal line up at KD Machine. This machine is one of five horizontals equipped with Centroid M400 CNC controls. The first one is about 6 years old. Kenny says he keeps coming back to Centroid since the control makes it easy to get the work thru the shop and out the door.
KD Machine specializes in large parts and serves the railroad and oil industries.
