Complete remanufacturing includes a comprehensive rebuild of all machine components and an upgrade in capabilities beyond the ability of the original machine. Various gauging systems such as Vollmer, FMT, probes, SBS electronic wheel balancing, and Barnes coolant systems are available. Other accessories such as belt grinders, grooving attachments, bed extensions for Farrel roll grinders, etc., are also available.
Older machines are fitted with new state-of-the -art CNC controls, servos, and spindle drives. Controls available are GE/Fanuc, Giddings & Lewis, and Siemens. Field retrofits are also available for Herkules, Waldrich, Farrel, and Voith grinders. Giddings & Lewis point-to-point and contouring machines can also be retrofitted in place.
We rebuild spindle assemblies, valve bodies, transmissions, equalizer drives, work rests, journal rests, lubrication systems, and other components. Replacement parts are available from our large inventory of serviceable used parts. New parts are available for Farrel, Mesta, Landis, and some Cincinnati machines. Some components are available on an exchange basis to reduce downtime.
We recently completed remanufactures and installations of a Farrel two-wheeler for a customer in Indonesia and single-wheel Waldrich and Farrel roll grinders for a paper mill application in China. All of these machines were equipped with roll calipers and automatic shape compensation.
