CNC control retrofit possibilities

There are many ways to update your CNC controller.
Some people wish to do it themselves. Others need it professionally installed with the least amount of machine down time. There are minimum component systems for tight budgets and "replace it all" systems providing the greatest amount of speed, accuracy, and reliability. This is my preferred upgrade as the customer pays once to gain many years of trouble free service.

Value is always a consideration. Many customers wish to compare the price of their broken down machine against the cost of a control upgrade. The true value lies in comparing the cost of a brand new machine tool against the cost of upgrading their known good iron with a new control.

  • 1. Your machine is already in place. We perform our CNC control upgrades on-site without the added expense of rigging or transportation. 
  • 2. You know what your current machine is capable of. Where is the value in purchasing a used machine with unknown qualities. It may or may not work out as expected.
  • 3. A new CNC control upgrade provides your machine with the features and reliability of a new CNC machine tool at a fraction of the new machine price.
  • 4. Centroid CNC controls can grow with your shop requirements. At the time of installation or years later you can add new features such as, increased part precision through laser compensation or linear encoder feedback, ridged tapping, probing, or part digitizing.
