  2. Don't Scrap a Mechanically-Sound Machine!

    Don't Scrap a Mechanically-Sound Machine!

    When the controls went bad on their AMW large gantry surface grinder and they couldn’t get support or replacement parts from the original manufacturer, HF Rubber was at a crossroads. They had a mechanically-sound machine with an incredible capacity, but without reliable controls, how could they keep production going?

    Knowing that a new or rebuilt machine could easily be a six-figure investment, they reached out to MachMotion for a more affordable option. We performed a machine inspection and gathered technical information for a control upgrade quote. After discussing the application and getting a concrete understanding of HF Rubber’s manufacturing needs, we decided to do a full turnkey installation.

    We built all the motor mounts and brackets, finished all the engineering and prewired an electrical enclosure in the MachMotion shop. When we went onsite, we were able to quickly and efficiently mount up all the components for the control upgrade and provide the most cost-effective solution for this beast of a machine.

    By upgrading their control with MachMotion, HF Rubber was able to keep the capacity of their machine, with all the fixtures and tooling they were familiar with, and upgrade all the electrical systems with a rock-solid control that has FREE support for life.

  3. What's Your Backup Plan?

    What's Your Backup Plan?

    To the casual observer, this may look like an ordinary thumb drive. But 10 years from now, it could be the lifeline that keeps our customer from stopping production.

    The loss of valuable machine settings can render a working machine totally useless. We talk to customers almost every day that use controls with old computer hardware from the 1990's. We often hear stories of a hard drive going bad and bringing the customer to a total stand still. Even if they replace the hard drive, all the machine settings are gone forever.

    If this customer had a MachMotion control, they would not be dead in the water.

    The flash drive you see in the photo comes standard on every control we sell. It automatically creates a backup of the entire machine profile every week. So, if the control hard drive goes down, we can replace it, restore the software and restore the settings unique to that machine.

    Want an added layer of protection? You can ask our support team to create an additional backup to keep in your desk drawer or desktop PC. And, if you get a turn-key install from us, we will keep a backup of your system on our server with the records of your install.

    We have been upgrading CNC controls for 20 years. We know the friction points that companies and operators experience. Let us design a system for you to replace that outdated control and give you an update that is modern and has lifetime support.

  6. Essential Business Gets Back Up & Running with a MachMotion Upgrade

    Essential Business Gets Back Up & Running with a MachMotion Upgrade

    This New Britain Bed Mill exclusively bores laminated glass, used as light filters in hundreds of products. Unfortunately, Newport Corporation’s bed mill control was out of date, rendering the machine useless.

    In order to get back up and running, Newport reached out to MachMotion for a control upgrade. They opted for self-installation on their straight-forward knee mill kit, then brought us on site to complete the setup. By upgrading with MachMotion, Newport was able to expend minimum effort and achieve maximum result!

    After a successful install, this New Britain Bed Mill is back in the business of making lenses used in the COVID-19 quick test instruments and is looking forward to their next MachMotion upgrade. We thank them for their essential services and for partnering with us!
