CNC Retrofits

Larger older machines typically have plenty of life left structurally and mechanically The problem is,  they run into aging electronics that are often discontinued, or not supported. Retrofits breathe new life into old machine tools, extending their service life by 10 to 20 years.

Retrofits solutions:

  • CNC Only
  • CNC, Motors, and Drives
  • Complete Electrical System, including above and all other electronics on a machine
  • Mechanical Retrofits, including ball-screws, linear guides, etc.

DeTechSol has provided CNC retrofits for over 10 years for Siemens, Fanuc, Heidenhain, and other CNC builders. We have been established as a Siemens Solutions Partner for the last 8 years.

We have provided Retrofits across the United States, and as far ranging as Mexico and Republic of Columbia.

Success Story

Customer Problem: Replacement parts are no longer available for a large aging laser machine. The machine is critical to production in an aerospace application – to replace the machine would require an exhaustive re-conformance of the manufacturing process

DeTechSol Solution: DeTechSol implemented a complete CNC, Motors, and Drives retrofit on a 5-axis Armada laser machine, including replacing all linear scales. A custom interface was developed for the laser, which is a standalone piece of equipment.
