REMANUFACTURED MILLING, DRILLING, GEAR GASHING, TURNING MACHINES
Our foundation of knowledge from a history of rebuilding all types of verticals has helped craft our approach to designing and building new machines. When it comes to rebuilding, we employ an approach we call “Remanufacture PLUS”, referring to the restoration of a machine to new condition while also adding new components such as control systems, bearings, seals and ball screws. A fresh paint job and new guarding with power doors leaves a rebuilt machine indistinguishable from one that is brand new, while also allowing the customer to preserve an original foundation or footprint of the machine and providing a prohibitive cost savings over buying new.
If you are considering remanufacturing an existing machine tool or are having a hard time justifying a new piece of equipment, give Phoenix a call. Our combination of experience, innovation and leading-edge engineering ensures the right solution for your application.
The decision to buy new vs. rebuilding an existing machine often times is not a simple one to make, but consider what you’re getting when choosing Phoenix for your remanufacturing needs.
THE COST OF REMANUFACTURING MACHINES
Among the most important aspects of the decision to replace or rebuild a machine is price. Not only will remanufacturing often save anywhere from 50%-60% of the cost of a new machine, the downtime of a machine being rebuilt would be months less than the delivery of a new machine and the loss of production must be taken into account as well.
BENEFITS OF CONTINUITY WITH REMANUFACTURING
With older machines in particular, the heavy-duty castings that make up the major components can be maintained and modified if necessary. These castings are often more rugged and durable than anything that is made today. Preserving the machine’s original footprint also saves the engineering hours and cost of constructing a new foundation and keeps operators and maintenance personnel familiar with every aspect of the machine they have learned to operate.
PRODUCTION BENEFITS OF REMANUFACTURED MACHINES
Phoenix goes well beyond a simple “paint-and-scrape” type job when evaluating a remanufacture/retrofit project. The goal is not to simply restore a machine to its original state but to update components such as spindles or drive systems, ram assemblies, controls and guarding to maintain or increase production capabilities.
