What is CNC Retrofitting?
CNC retrofitting is the process of replacing or adding newer, more advanced controls and electronics to an existing machine. Retrofitting can include a new upgraded controller, replacement of old parts and possibly a complete rewire, as well as other changes.
Replacing your CNC machine can get you better functionality, user-friendliness and precision, but it is a big expense. All these benefits can be achieved with a CNC retrofit, saving you money. Do you want enhanced machine performance and productivity without the cost of a new machine tool? MTL’s CNC retrofit service may be the right option for you.
What does a CNC retrofit entail?
A ‘retrofit’ might range from replacing a single or dual-axis numerical control to a complete CNC package. Our experienced engineers can advise you exactly what you need and give you a quote to upgrade your machine.
Can my machine be retrofitted?
We assess machines thoroughly to identify areas where retrofit would be beneficial. Any machine can be considered for a control upgrade, and this alone can be a huge cost saving compared to replacing the machine. Many CNC operators opt for retrofitting the control solutions over buying a new machine as this is more efficient, less wasteful and cheaper overall, giving your business some financial breathing space. It is worth having your machine assessed for a CNC retrofit. Below is a list of the types of machines we commonly operate with,
Can you Rebuild a CNC machine?
At MTL, we are able to offer a CNC Rebuild to complement the CNC Retrofit, meaning your machine is just as good as a new one. This includes disassembling, assessing and rebuilding each component, resetting all mechanical bearings and seals, sanding or scraping worn surfaces, and replacing linear guides. Our CNC mechanics are highly trained and experienced in rebuilding and retrofitting CNC machines, press brakes and other mechanical tools.
