Rebuilt & Remanufactured Honing Machines

Durability is and was a top priority in the design and manufacture of our honing  machines. As a result of this, there are many machines built decades ago that are still being used in production today with features that are no longer "state of the art". With this fact in mind, we offer customers the option of upgrading or modernizing these older model machines.

By choosing to update or rebuild an older machine, we can often provide a more cost-effective solution for those who are working with budget constraints and faster delivery for meeting accelerated project demands. Cost can be matched with a combination of mechanical and electrical upgrades to satisfy your requirements.

Whether you are retooling for a new workpiece, looking to increase the productivity and quality of your existing machine, or you’ve found that maintenance is no longer feasible, a remanufacturing of a machine may be the correct solution for you.
