This machine was already a 5 axis grinding machine, with two spindles. It was originally equipped with a PC based control utilizing stepper drives and motors, and was no longer supportable by the OEM. So we installed a new Siemens 840D CNC and Siemens 611D digital servos, plus a new Normac two axis rotary dresser.
From our customer:
Just a quick update for today. I just finished my 3rd piece today of those P&W shafts, I have never made 3 in one day!!!!! Thanks again for your support and software modifications to make machine do what we need it to do. I will send another email in near future with an update after using new software for a few jobs.

This Liebherr LC-1002 was in excellent mechanical condition, but the controls were very problematic. The old control was the proprietary Liebherr system, with little support or parts available. The controls we installed were GE Fanuc 18i-MB CNC with GE Fanuc Alpha HVi digital servos and spindle.

This large hobbing machine was a fully mechanical machine with both index and differential change gears. The customer wanted a fully CNC controlled machine, with some additional guarding and mechanical repairs. So we removed all the mechanical gear trains and installed a new GE Fanuc 18i-MB CNC, new GE Fanuc Alpha HVi digital servos, and new Heidenhain scales to control this large machine.
