Services > Retrofits / Spare parts


The value of old, solid machines is often underestimated. A reasonable modernization can increase the productivity of old machines considerably or even bring it on new machine level. Therefore under modernization of a machine, we do not understand the replacement of old through new parts, but the increase in performance, the expansion of technological features and adding new features. This can be, among other:

  • Increase of spindle speed

  • Increase of spindle torque

  • Rebuild tool clampning to newest version with inner coolant

  • Rebuild spindle with an exchangable taper sleeve and newest taper version

  • Complete new spindle systems

  • Rebuild roller bearings to hydrostatic one and vice versa

  • Rebuild sliding guideways to linear guideways or hydrostatic guideways

  • Rebuild hydrostatics (new control valves, increase stiffness)

  • Rebuild hydraulics (noise reduction, less energy consumption)

  • Update or exchange rams with live spindle

  • Automatic docking

  • Working space enlargements

  • Working travel extensions

  • Tool changer upgrade

  • Work piece changer upgrade

  • Increase rapid travel speed

  • Linear scale upgrade

  • New drives (eg. trapezoidal spindle to ball screw spindle including new servo motors)

  • Special heads (eg. upgrade of NC-facing head, grinding head...)

  • etc.
