Family-owned machine shop retrofits legacy equipment using FANUC controls

Family-owned and operated Lincoln Park Boring Company found a niche in handling large parts and metal fabrication for a number of industries. However, the company was facing the problem of having legacy machines.

To bring its equipment up to 21st century standards, Lincoln Park enlisted the help of machine builder Fives Giddings & Lewis, a FANUC-authorized integrator. By installing FANUC controls in the retrofit, Lincoln Park now has a machine with much more capabilities and tighter tolerances than before. Additionally, the FANUC controls can run the equipment faster to accommodate rapid travel rates. The FANUC retrofit has resulted in more efficiency, shorter production times and the ability for Lincoln Park to go after new business.
