New life for your veteran grinding machines

When new production opportunities arrive at your shop but your current machines aren’t quite ready for it, remember this: a quick retrofit might be all that’s needed.

Whether it’s the spindle or the gauge or FANUC Panel i, upgrades are a surefire way to breathe new life into your CNC grinding equipment.

Benefits of grinding machine retrofits:

  • Extend the service life and preserve the value of your equipment
  • Prepare your machine for new applications
  • Upgrade machine components to state-of-the-art technology
  • Enable your employees to continue using familiar equipment

How grinding machine retrofits work:

  • There’s no need to ship your machine out of your facility. UNITED GRINDING technicians perform all retrofit work right there on your floor.
  • Time to complete varies depending on the extent of retrofits being done. Generally, it takes a couple of days to perform a single retrofit. If, for example, you’re installing a spindle upgrade and a new FANUC Panel i control, the work should be completed in just under one work week.
  • Once the work is completed by our trained technicians, it comes with a full warranty.

Retrofits are most commonly performed on STUDER, WALTER and EWAG equipment, but upgrades are available for other UNITED GRINDING brands, including MÄGERLE and BLOHM.
