Rambuadi Mill Retrofit - Still Going Strong!
I CANNOT EXPRESS how pleased I am with the Rambaudi retrofit you did for me in 2013! My workload on that machine went from an almost daily “Rambaudi this, Rambaudi that and Rambaudi bla bla bla” down to “what machine are you talking about?”. That is absolutely not an exaggeration!
Producto Polisher Machine
While retrofitting a Producto Polisher Machine with a FANUC 0i-MF control, the CNC Engineering team ran into a few unique Engineering, Custom Programming, and Startup challenges. Upon completion of the Retrofit, the customer said, "Your team was excellent working through the challenges. The next two machines will be significantly easier and faster at install thanks to these efforts."
As I mentioned on the phone, working with CNC Eng. was a very positive experience, we appreciate the disposition and diligence on your end and want to thank you for the collaboration in making it happen.
Blohm 412 Grinder Retrofit
All of the CNC Engineering staff that I have been working with are very professional and great to work with since day one. I have been in charge of Purchasing for over 15 years and worked on many project with suppliers from all over. You can tell when a company has a good product and plan to executes their goals. I watched that progress from the beginning with you folks and I am very satisfied. Thanks again and great job to all of you that we have been working and the others behind the scene.
Rambaudi Mill Retrofit
You normally don’t hear from folks unless something is wrong, so that’s a testament to the EXCELLENT job CNC did on our Rambaudi mill. I was involved when it was originally installed in 1985, and it NEVER ran as carefree as it has in the last 3 years since your retrofit. Thanks so much.
Webster Bennett VTL Spindle Upgrade
"We have just completed an installation of a new drive on our CNC VTL. A couple of things came to light. One was the competence of the (2) gentlemen doing the install, Dan Goepfert and Frank Carllo. Not only did they conduct themselves with professionalism, they were helpful in answering questions and worked well with the machinist in charge of that machine.
The other more noteworthy event was after they had a malfunction during the install. They were able to recover from that with-in 24 hours, keeping us on schedule with this retrofit. They never made excuses, but just dug in and got the job done. With that kind of dedication, I am confident your business will continue to be a success. I would like to thank you for a seamless install and a job well done. You should be proud of your employees."
Tool Probe Solution designed and installed on a Olympia and a Solenoid Relocation on a Niigata machining center

The amount of expertise of your Applications Engineer / Probing Specialist and delivery of these projects in the short amount of time is to be commended and recognized.”
Recently completed Probing Solution utilizing a Renishaw OMP40 touch probe interfaced to a Komo Twin Spindle Router
“We recently contracted CNC Engineering to integrate an existing touch probe to a Komo Twin Spindle Router for one of our customers. The Applications Engineer they assigned to the project went over and above the standard Renishaw application to include both Y and V axis plus M19 and M17 issues. He displayed an incredible knowledge of machine controls and was very flexible to the onsite work schedule.”
Probing Application Development for a 5-Axes CNC Machining Center
“I’ve been doing business with CNC Engineering for many years. We recently partnered with them on a 5-axes CNC milling probe capability project and the results have been nothing short of brilliant. We manufacture a large aerospace application housing assembly with a bore geometry that is as complex as it gets and we nailed it, right out of the gate, with the probe application developed by CNC Engineering. The resulting process is, conservatively, 3-times more efficient than the prior application.”

“CNC Engineering, Inc. did an outstanding job supplying and installing the RT Cable Plus system for our customer. Your installer was extremely professional and clearly paid attention to detail. The product is first class the spring cable retractor is a nice touch that just adds to the professionalism of the install. In fact, our customer said they will NEVER buy another rotary table system without your RT Cable Plus.”
CNC Engineering has completed 7 different retrofit projects for Stanadyne Automotive
“CNC Engineering did the retrofit very efficiently and with a minimum of disruption to our operations. Frank did the installation to our complete satisfaction and was very easy to work with. We were running the very day that the installation was completed. Frank came back a couple of weeks later for a follow-up visit. The machine operation was modified with some desired changes, after giving the department an opportunity to gain some hands-on experience using the new control.”
Dorries VTL control integration utilizing a FANUC 0i-TB control
“I would like to let you know that the CNC Engineering, Inc. crew here for the Dorries upgrade did an excellent job. The install team did a great job on the installation and rewiring of the machine and we were very impressed with the programming skills and knowledge of your engineers. Your team also did a good job explaining the system and providing training for our operators. Again, I would like to state that your people have impressed us here at SKF and this is the main reason we have given you our upgrade work.”
Retrofit of a Bryant LF2 OD Grinder utilizing a FANUC 0i-TB control
“We found the old Teachable controls on our Bryant Grinders problematic, but we were able to keep up with production demands. When CNC Engineering, Inc. replaced the Teachable controls with GE Fanuc controls we increased our productivity by 30% per machine and we now have extra capacity available for new business.”
Lodge & Shipley PT-50 lathe retrofit utilizing a FANUC 0i-TC control
“This is the biggest shaft we manufacture and without the L&S (retrofit) it would cost us three times as much to outsource. Our operator likes the way the machine runs and is happy to be back on it. Thanks again.”

FANUC 0i-TD Retrofit for Mori Seiki LL8
“I am very impressed with CNC Engineering. Their quality and knowledge surpassed my expectations on the retrofit of my Mori Seiki LL-8. The guys came into the shop knowing exactly what needed to be done and got right to work. They breezed through pulling all old components that needed to be removed, and gave me insight on possible future problem areas. The installation team completed all of the new wiring and new servos were installed. The engineer stepped in and, in seemingly no time at all, had my machine working like brand new. He spent time with my operator and me, making sure that we fully understood everything about our new control.”
FANUC 0i-TD Control System for Saw Blade Grinder Dressing System
