Here are a few more projects that we were given. These photos are just an example of the wide variety of machine tools that we have retrofitted over the years.

Cincinnati Gilbert Boring Mill
This machine tool had been retrofitted previously with a GE 550. It was housed in a freestanding cabinet and used an old "behind the tape reader" program drip feeder. Wow, is that old or what?
This machine had for it's control an Allen Bradley CNC. We replaced it with a Dynapath Delta 50 CNC. We also replaced the older servo and spindle drives, but, we continued to use the Inductosyn scales with newer interface electronics. Very accurate and precise.

Devlieg Mill Electrical Panel
This is a picture of the components we installed on the Devlieg mill pictured above.
This is an operator station for a laser cutting machine using a GE Fanuc CNC and laser resonator. Incorporated on board is a Laser Mechanism's height sense unit calibration and tip stand-off controls.
