Rebuild & Retrofit

Rebuild & Retrofit

Teardown and inspection is one of the most important steps in the rebuild process. Our technicians carefully remove all electric, pneumatic, hydraulic and lubrication systems, along with all major components and break them down to their individual pieces. All machine ways are machined, ground and/or hand scraped to precision alignment.

Each and every piece is then cleaned prior to inspection to determine the amount of wear or damage. Naturally, all worn components are either repaired or replaced. In the process of rebuilding a machine, we also:

  • Evaluate the spindle condition
  • Replace all bearings
  • Inspect and grind bearing journals as required
  • Grind, scrape and fit all parts to the point that they’re as good as new, and rebuild or replace all hydraulic and electric motors.

Only then do we begin the process of mounting and aligning the machine’s components.

In the final steps, the machine is started and components are tested for placement and performance.

Teardown & Inspection

From teardown to final testing, Inter-Motion can professionally rebuild and retrofit any manufacturing machine in your inventory, no matter its age.

Not only can we rebuild it to like-new condition, but we will bring it up to OEM standards of performance, as well as current OSHA standards for safety. At the same time, we can retrofit your old manually or hydraulically operated machine with electronic controls and automated processes that lower costs and boost productivity.

It can be tough to justify a new machine in any environment; but it’s even harder in a tight economy … even though it may be desperately needed to improve efficiency. Instead, why not let Inter-Motion rebuild your old unit to perform just as well at a fraction of the cost?

If you don’t already have the machine you need, we can even help you locate an appropriate model and handle all pick-ups and deliveries.

Each step in our machine rebuilding process is a critical part of providing you with a manufacturing unit that will give years of trouble-free service, and help you remain competitive in a tough, global marketplace.
