Galco Industrial Electronics can retrofit obsolete CNCs on machine tool mills, grinders, lathes and routers with FANUC FA America products. Machine tools represent significant capital investments and must maintain their viability for many years. Keeping them updated with the latest control technologies via CNC retrofit is one way to do that successfully today. A CNC retrofit includes upgrades to the CNC, the servo motors and drives, the spindle motor and drives, and a portion of the associated wiring and related electromechanical components. Unlike rebuilding and remanufacturing, a CNC retrofit does not include any major repairs to the machine mechanics, so the machine itself is otherwise still in working condition.
When savings are taken into account, versus leaving the equipment as is and accepting the current availability and performance of an outdated machine tool, a CNC retrofit can quickly pay for itself. The updated machine can perform with better quality, better efficiency, and better uptime.
