Drive retrofits are smart and economical ways to revive your aging CNC equipment.
The Challenge: Our customer had a Mori Seiki SL-2B that was still a solid machine but the legacy spindle drive CIMR-MT-15K was beyond repair.
Our Solution: We retrofitted a newer Yaskawa M5 series inverter and spindle drives in the customer’s original CIMR-MT drive chassis.
In addition, we mounted several other components such as a signal converter for the resolver and relays for the machines I/O. Then custom cable connectors were installed to interconnect the old and new components. Lastly, we performed software customization to match the replacement drive parameters.
The result of this project was a plug and play replacement solution that was easily installed in the legacy machine and got it up and running again!
