OLD MACHINE NEW TRICKS"
The NEW standard question asked by
major corporations before awarding work is, "Will the work be done on CNC?"
you are losing market share or find yourself unable to compete on multiple parts deals, repeat parts, or specials, consider
a CNC retrofit investment of your existing horizontal boring mills, copy milling machines, NC, first generation CNC machining,
and turning centers.
Did you know.....
-Retrofitting your machine costs a fraction of new?
may be tax advantages to retrofitting vs. purchasing new?
-You receive a one (1) year limited warranty on all electronic
-The complete process of remanufacturing a Nomura or similiar boring mill takes less than eight (8) weeks?
-We recondition the old "carcass" as well as retrofit?
-The resale value of the completed product can be
as high as 80% of a new CNC machine?
-Our in house private training program helps you to start cutting chips immeadiately?
-We install Mitsubishi, Anilam, Dynapath, Creative Evolution, Yaskawa, MDSI, and other quality controls?
an on-going customer follow-up program to monitor machine performance after installation?
The decision to invest in your future in upgrading machines
to CNC leads to the question "should I retrofit an existing machine or purchase new?"
New vs. Retrofit
Many times all the expenses related to the purchase of
a new machine are not considered until after the decision. Such as, machine delivery lead time, freight, new concrete
pad, electrical, reallocation of space, and debugging after arrival.
Low Cost Investment
Normally, the typical retrofit candidate is probably already written off. Eagle converts this good "carcass"
to CNC power by replacing the existing mechanical gear drives, and Acme Screws, with Servo Motors and precision ground ball
screws. A new Mitsubishi or other control, along with covers and paint, finish the machine to a "like new"
appearance and operation.
In many cases there are tax advantages
as personal property taxes are reduced to the retrofit portion of the machine. Consult with your accountant on how this
may apply to your situation.
24 Month Warranty
All mechanical work performed
by Eagle has a six (6) month /2000 hour parts and labor warranty. All new electronic components have a twelve (12) month
parts and labor warranty. Mitsubishi offers a twenty-four (24) month replacement warranty on all of their components.
Turn Around Time
Eagle designs and documents all parts used in the conversion
process. On machines we have already retrofitted the turn around time is dramatically reduced.
Included with your retrofit investment is up to sixteen (16) hours of hands on training
to enable quick start to cutting chips after the machine is installed.
A complete set of electrical prints are furnished with the machine as well as control operation manuals to meet future maintenance
and trouble shooting issues.
Follow-up after the installation
is critical after completion of the retrofit. Eagle maintains regular customer contact even after the retrofit is completed.
