New life for old iron– Michael Kelley, mechanical engineer for International Tool Machines, Palm Coast, Fla., emphasized how the company’s retrofits extend the life of the CNC grinding machines ITM builds, which can be 25-plus years old. “The strategy tends to be economical as the retrofit machine runs almost like a new machine,” he said, noting a retrofit is usually 30 to 60 percent of the cost of a comparable new grinder. “Many customers find a high return on investment when an old machine is retrofit.”

Cutting downtime– Overall, Tivoly was pleased with ITM’s results. “It was quite a challenge for ITM because of the machine’s age,” Gowdy concluded. “They were exceptional in working with us on the new software, which they had to program from scratch. They tried to get the old programs out of the old controller, but it wouldn’t give them up.”

Gowdy is especially satisfied with only 2 hours of machine downtime so far this year.
