FANUC Retrofits for CNC Roll Grinders

CNC Roll Grinders require unique CNC technology and can't be retrofitted with just any CNC, but they aren't limited to Roll Grind OEM's controls either.  

Our Roll Grind Retrofit solution combines the reliability of FANUC CNC systems with the power of CNC Engineering's Open Vision™ Grind software to modernize CNC Roll Grinders like Herkules, Farrel, Waldrich Siegen, South Bend, and Craven. The robust operator interface and advanced CNC hardware mean easier operation and less downtime, as well as better access to support, service, and parts if needed.

Moving Forward with Your CNC Roll Grind Retrofit

In today’s high demand environment keeping downtime to a minimum is critical. CNC Engineering specializes in retrofitting machines on customers’ floors with minimal downtime, usually 3 – 4 weeks.

If mechanical work is needed, CNC Engineering partners with mechanical houses who specialize in Roll grinders and lathes and can repair machines on the customers floor, remove parts of the machine that need more complete rebuilding, or even remove the entire machine for a complete machine re-manufacture.

CNC Engineering, Inc. is the largest and most experienced FANUC Authorized CNC Systems Integrator in North America. We have retrofitted more than a thousand CNC machine tools over our 38-year history, with a special focus on CNC Grinders.
