Customer Success Story: Optimizing Rol-Tec’s Cylindrical Rubber Roll Grinder With A MachMotion Retrofit

Rol Tec Retrofit With MachMotion Controls

A Major Production Setback

Rol-Tec, a leading provider of precision manufacturing, faced a significant operational setback. Their cylindrical grinder, a crucial asset in their rubber roll production, failed due to a crippling control malfunction. This unexpected halt caused major disruptions in their production lines, forcing them to assess the machine’s condition and viability.

The challenge that Rol-Tec confronted was worsened by the age of their cylindrical grinder. As technology advanced, equipment that was once cutting-edge no longer met the needs of the industry. The problem was made very apparent in the obsolete controls that no longer met the demands of modern precision manufacturing. Struggling under the weight of obsolescence, their rubber roll grinder was teetering on the precipice of abandonment.

Seeking A CNC Retrofit Solution

The once-thriving machine now stood idle, and Rol-Tec knew they had to do something quick to keep them in production. Rol-Tec found a glimmer of hope with a solution to resurrect their rubber roll grinder. They reached out to MachMotion and began their journey to giving their machine a second life. The journey toward revival commenced as the machine was retrofitted with state-of-the-art controls to replace the antiquated ones.
