CNC retrofitting refers to the process of adding or replacing an existing CNC machine with more advanced control technology and electronics. Work performed during the retrofit can include the replacement of obsolete parts, upgrading systems and an entire rewire, to name just a few examples. The purpose of this is to enhance the machine’s performance, productivity and capacity without having to completely replace machine tools.
Standing for Computer Numerical Controlled, CNC machines are innovative metalworking manufacturing tools designed to control complex machinery like lathes, laser cutters, milling machines and other types of industrial tools. Utilising pre-programmed software that dictates its movement, these machines perform tasks – such as cutting, drilling and rotating – according to code.
