Why Upgrade Your CNC Machine Controller?

MachMotion Answers the Question: Why upgrade your CNC machine controller?

MachMotion Why Upgrade Blog

Ask yourself this: Why would you replace your router, grinder, lathe, mill, or waterjet when you could upgrade your CNC machine to last longer?

Many companies, from multi-billion dollar corporations to small manufacturing job shops use their CNC equipment until the controller goes bad. Oftentimes, they then throw the whole machine away because it is unusable in its current state. But underneath the CNC machine controller, there is a frame. There are ball screws. There is a 50-horsepower AC motor that has 10, 20 maybe even 50 more years of life left in it. They already have tooling for this machine. They know how rigid it is and how hard the operators can push it. Most likely, it’s built better than the machinery rolling off the showroom floor today. 

Why would a CNC owner throw away a router, grinder, lathe, mill, or waterjet when they could give it a second life? At MachMotion we have been helping companies for over 20 years breathe new life into good machines because there’s nothing wrong with your machine. It just needs a new CNC machine control.
