Machine Rebuilders CNC has been performing machine repairs and control upgrades for 30 years and has vast experience giving old iron a new life. When Machine Rebuilders began to realize their need for advanced controls and custom software setup, they found MachMotion.
Because each system requires a different controls setup, and with technology ever-changing and developing, it was important to Machine Rebuilders that they would be able to install a control that they felt confident in… One they knew the provider would stand behind and support for years to come. When Machine Rebuilders reached out to MachMotion, our engineering team was able to help them size servos and a new VDF to replace the old DC spindle. After discussing the turn-key installation options, Machine Rebuilders invited us to do a 3-day onsite install and power-up in New Derry, PA.
In preparation for the install, Machine Rebuilders set up the new servo motors; replaced the DC spindle with the new AC motor; installed the control and electrical enclosure; and pulled the main cable set to the enclosure. Day one of the install, the MachMotion sales engineer helped terminate all the machine electrical in the electrical enclosure. The following day, we worked together to button up some final electrical work and started powering up the controls. It took a few hours to check rotation on coolant, hydraulic, lube pump, and diagnose a faulty solenoid, but eventually we began servo tuning and powered up the spindle. On the final day of the onsite install, we ran test programs and set up IO integrations for door switch, spindle jog and the lower table brake.
Machine Rebuilders was able to get their machine up and running to the exact specifications they needed, and we’re already looking forward to the next opportunity to work together.
