A re-manufacture includes all the characteristics of a rebuild and a retrofit plus a redesign of the machine to enhance its capabilities and improve its productivity.

Engineering improvements that can be included in remanufacturing include:

• Increased cutting feed rates
• Extending axis travels
• Increased spindle speeds
• Adding tool changers or pallet shuttles
• Converting manual machines to full CNC

Remanufacturing can save up to HALF the cost of a new machine, and is most appropriate when replacement costs exceed $400,000..
