A grinding machine rebuilding and upgrading service is now being offered by Jones & Shipman Hardinge, including machines produced by sister companies in the Hardinge Group – Kellenberger, Hauser, Voumard, Tschudin and Usach.
“The service is designed to maximise the lifespan of a machine which, while perfectly sound in structure and capability, could benefit from upgrading,” explains Jones & Shipman Hardinge UK managing director Mike Duignan. “If you take a universal Kellenberger Varia for example, a refurbishment and upgrade to include the latest Fanuc 0i control with the new Kellenberger menu-based programming software, could be as much as 25% cheaper than buying a new machine.”
Furthermore, through the company’s UK and European headquarters, Jones & Shipman Hardinge has the facility to supply a loan machine for some Kellenberger products, so that production is not interrupted.
