We tear the "old" hobber down to bare castings. We clean, inspect and paint them. After which, we begin the reassembly process. Slides are fitted by hand scraping to the original specifications. Power flaking provides renewed surface lubrication. Servo driven precision ball lead screws are added. Change gears and associated mechanisms are eliminated. We pay particular attention to the lubrication scheme, and typically install lube systems with fail safe monitoring. All bearings and seals are new. Bearings are usually the same as factory originals (i.e. high precision.) All hydraulic components are new. All electrical components are new. The electrical enclosure is AIR CONDITIONED and NEMA 12. Advanced circuit protection is utilized. Below is a Pfauter 400 after stripping down.

However, when the machine is installed, we also train other operators as well as
the maintenance personnel.. See what it's like to work with us
