We recently came across this article from thefabricator.com This spells out all of the things to consider when updating an older machine. These are all things we review with our customers but still a good read with great information.
Items outlined in article to review
- Table Location
- Power Track
- Power source
- Cutting gases used
- Review the CNC and Lifters for replacement (We generally replace these as part of our retrofits)
- What consumables you will need after the retrofit
- Training users
