Machine Tool Rebuilds

Sometimes the best, most economical way to enhance the performance capacity of your machines is to rebuild them. Good candidates for machine tool rebuilding are your production units that are less than 12 years old with a reliable CNC control.

What is a Machine Tool Rebuild?

The term machine tool "rebuild" service refers to a complete overhaul of a machine to its original mechanical specifications without needing a new CNC control. The mechanical components of the machine are cleaned, inspected, and rebuilt, using either new or re-machined parts. If you are in need of CNC control service, a retrofit is the best fit for your machine. If you need both a rebuild and CNC controls, a remanufacture is the best fit for your machine. KRC Machine Tool Solutions can help you with your rebuild needs for boring mills, gantry, and bridge mill machines.

How do I know if my machine tool needs to be rebuilt?

Most often, signs of a machine tool needing a rebuild include increased downtime and costs. If your CNC controls are still in good shape but your machine is deteriorating, it may be a good candidate for a mechanical rebuild.

What are the Machine Tool Rebuild / CNC Rebuild Steps?

  • Rebuilding all mechanical components including replacement of all bearings and seals
  • Grinding of the hardened ways, hand scraping of wear surfaces, or replacement of linear guides
  • Ball screw repair or replacement
  • Hydraulic and lube system rebuild, including new valves and hoses
  • Repair or replacement of way wipers and way covers
  • Painting
  • Return of machine geometric alignments, as well as positioning accuracy, to OEM specs

Our staff of experienced field service engineers will remove and install units, as well as provide any other CNC machine tool services required.
