CNC Machine Tool Retrofitting.

Retrofitting the CNC control on your machine tool is an effective and economical way of upgrading your machine tool and the machine tools capability.

When we take on a retrofitting project we not only replace the CNC control but refurbish the machine tool both mechanically and electrically.

At the end of a project all documentation is handed over to the customer , we train the machine operator and request that during the rebuild that a maintenance person assists with the rebuild so that they can gain knowledge of the rebuild for future maintenance as well as gain knowledge on the new CNC control .

Please contact us for information.

Retrofit Customers :
Pitchline Engineering  (PTY) Ltd.
Pitchline Engineering manufactured 10 CNC lathes of which 2 have live tooling ( milling) function. DMT assisted with the Fanuc Series 0iTB controls installation, parameter setup, servo, spindle setup and PMC software.

Each CNC has a Pitchline Barfeeder connected ,the barfeeder is controlled and monitored by the CNC PMC.
Retrofitting using FANUC 31i CNC controller
Xemco Heavy Machining (Port Elizabeth)
The FANUC 31i CNC control was used to retrofit a 3 path horizontal Gray Borer for XMECO Heavy Machining in Port Elizabeth. The machine has a total of three heads making up 6 axis.The first path also has a milling head with live tooling. All electrical layout panel design machine interface was done by DMT as well as the CNC contol setup and PMC programming.
First Class Engineering (Port Elizabeth)
Retrofitting using the HUST CNC controller
We use the HUST CNC controller series where the customer requires a Analog type servo interface for a retrofit. This becomes very cost effective when the customer only requires his CNC controller to be retrofitted and we interface the original Analog servos to the HUST CNC controller.
We can also offer a HUST CNC controller package that comes with new AC servo motors and drive units.
