Heller Crank Mill Upgrade completed

We have recently completed the control system replacement of a RFK200 Heller Crank mill. The original UniPro control system is now obsolete with continued support and servicing being a major problem. Our client is a prestige automotive component manufacturer and whilst the machine was still mechanically sound, the control system provided a constant headache with regular breakdowns and machine malfunctions. Over the course of the project, we completely removed the UniPro control system and associated control panel and replaced with a new state of the art Bosch Rexroth MTX CNC control system, complete with new Axis and spindle drive systems, new AC servo motors, linear encoders, upgraded safety systems and a brand new control panel and all associated hardware.
