CNC Machine Retrofit

Every company has one – the trusted machine tool that has been a staple workhorse in the plant for years. It works competently enough and gets the job done, but with newer and faster machines on the market today, you wonder if you could achieve better performance and results with something else.

This is where Pelican retrofit team comes in. We can provide a viable alternative to purchasing costly new machines by improving the mechanical and electrical performance in your current medium to large-sized machine tools. The result? Machines that will achieve optimal performance, be outfitted with the latest technology, and end up costing your company far less than if you were to replace it.

This Toshiba Shibaura horizontal boring mill, from the early nineties, was refurbished mechanically with new ballscrews, slideway grinding and turcite replacement. A 60 tool magazine was added, and a new Heidenhain TNC-530I was integrated along with a new electrical PDP and cabinet air conditioning.

This VDF CNC lathe, over 20 years old, underwent a complete mechanical overhaul to bring it up to modern day speeds and capabilities. The overhaul included: the regrind of slideways, renewing turcites and hydraulics turrets, installing a completely new electrical PDP cabinet, as well as a new Fanuc 18iT CNC system complete with motors and drives.
