Retrofitting a CNC machine is a good way to bring the life back to the older machines. There are times to do it and times to not do it. If there are things that you could be making and you have a machine you aren’t using, it’s time for a retrofit. If you see that your successful competitors are doing the same, you should see if you can emulate what they are doing to becoming successful.
- Retrofitting is great if you have an older machine that could use some upgrading.
- If you feel that there are new opportunities coming, it can be a good time to upgrade.
- If competitors are doing it also, it’s a good idea to do the same.
