Is Retrofitting a Good Option

That’s a good question. Many don’t begin to consider this question until it’s too late and a machine is down. If you take a moment now and consider,

  • Are you spending time and money on rework or trashing parts that are out of tolerance?
  • Do control maintenance costs keep increasing?
  • Has downtime become the norm?
  • Is your control not keeping up with your programming needs?

What if you could replace an outdated, under-performing control and make more money? The Mori-Seiki above was from the 70’s and had a tape reader. Working or not, this machine got a huge upgrade. There are many benefits to retrofitting a good machine:

  • Increased up-time
  • New, modern control – no part file memory problems and virtual tool-path display
  • Increased material removal rates with “high-speed capable control” (high speed machining capability)
  • Faster feed rates, no hesitations
  • Faster parts – up to 70% decrease in cycle times if programmed with iMachining
  • Extended tool life
  • Update-able control software
