Retrofitting or rebuilding a machine tool could be, in most of the cases, a very cost effective investment. It would give a new life to an older machine for which the maintenance is starting to be an issue.

  • Extended machine life
  • Increased return on the initial machine investment
  • Limited cost compared with a new machine purchase
  • Increased reliability
  • Increased productivity
  • Latest and best technology
  • State of the art programming environment including conversational systems

Retrofit or Rebuild

An aging, unreliable, or feature-limited CNC can be the cause of the high costs associated with maintenance and downtime of your machine. Retrofitting a new state-of-the-art control to one of your existing mechanically sound - high value - machines will extend its life and enhanced its productivity. Or perhaps a complete or partial mechanical rebuild and an updated CNC is required to maximize the return on investment. In either case, there is a FANUC CNC that is just right for the application, one that is capable of delivering the productivity and quality needed for today’s challenging business environment.
