Grinding machines manufactured by Jones & Shipman Hardinge (www.hardinge.com
) and its sister companies in the Hardinge Group — Kellenberger, Hauser, Voumard, Tschudin and Usach — are established features in many machine shops.
Now, building on the manufacturing and technical resources within the grinding companies of Hardinge Inc, customers can access a re-building and upgrading service being offered for high-value CNC grinding products.
Jones & Shipman Hardinge UK’s managing director, Mike Duignan, said: “It is a service designed to maximise the life span of a machine that, while perfectly sound in structure and capability, could benefit from upgrading.
"If you take a universal Kellenberger Varia, for example, a refurbishment and upgrade to include the latest Fanuc 0i control with the new Kellenberger user-friendly menu-based programming software could be as much as 25% less than a new machine.
"Furthermore, we can supply a loan machine for some Kellenberger products through our UK and European headquarters, so that production is not interrupted.”
