CNC Retrofitting

CNC RetrofittingAn essential cost effective service for upgrading your existing NC or CNC machine tool to the latest 'state of the art' technology. All our retrofits are complete, where every machine is rewired and all electrical components are replaced. We provide comprehensive documentation including electrical schematics, ladder diagrams, macro and parameter listings, giving you a machine tool you can rely on and guaranteed, with a control system of your choice. Retrofitting, re-manufacturing and rebuilding can provide the answer to your manufacturing needs at a fraction of the cost to replace with a new machine tool. Re-engineering your machine tools will greatly assist you meet the demands of higher productivity by improving quality and performance.

CNC Retrofitting deals in replacing or adding equipment to existing machine tools to improve energy efficiency, extend their lifespan and ultimately increase their general output.

Benefits of CNC retrofitting:

  • Benefiting from new technologies and materials
  • Optimisation of existing tool components
  • Product adaptation for newer or altered tools
  • Spare parts availability


The term Retrofitting allows new or updated parts to be fitted to old or outdated machine tools, typically when the design of a part or tool has been amended.
