Rebuilds, Retrofits & Upgrades

Rebuilds & Retrofits

For more than a century, thousands of companies across the globe have trusted FENN equipment to achieve their metal forming requirements. However, over time, applications and production requirements can change, and machines may no longer prove useful in their original configuration. Rebuilds, Retrofits and Upgrades can prove to be a favorable choice for customers unable to adequately use their existing metal forming machine. For a fraction of the cost of a new machine, FENN equipment owners can increase their machine’s capabilities and stay current with safety standards all while improving accuracy and increasing repeatability.

Torin Mechanical RetrofitsThe Torin mechanical retrofit program is designed to maximize the potential output of older model Torin spring coilers with the latest Torin CNC technology. With the elimination of clutches, brakes, and feed crank gears, retrofitted machines become simplified with fewer mechanical parts that need future replacement. The precise, variable speed servo control of feed and cam shaft independently enables greater flexibility when making complex springs. This also eliminates the need to change gears or adjust feed crank gears, clutches and brake, and allows for cam shaft reversals. Additionally, unlimited accurate feed length is provided by precise servo control. Experience expedited set-up time by adjusting the timing of the cam shaft via offsets in the spring program rather than re-clocking the cams mechanically. Also save time and labor by using modern Torin  programming. Maximize your machine’s potential with a rebuild!

Torin® Electrical UpgradesFENN also offers CNC control upgrades for older Torin® servo-controlled coilers. The control retrofit includes a complete replacement of the control system with the same state-of-the-art technology that is currently implemented on new spring coilers. With this package you can eliminate the risk of relying on obsolete components, low production rates and other issues such as poor-quality springs and worn mechanics. Additional benefits of updating your controls to modern systems include: greater efficiencies, easier for operators to learn and use, as well as increased productivity. Modernized platforms ensure your machine can be supported for years to come. When you increase the reliability of your machine, you minimize the risk of future downtime for repairs.

Rebuild Your Swager

FENN Swager Before After Rebuild

With rebuild service offerings, FENN machinery owners can take advantage of the OEM’s knowledge of the equipment and expertise to mechanically and electrically rework aged Swagers. The first step to rebuilding your Swager is to call FENN. After discussing the condition, age, wear and production goals of your machine, FENN’s experts will be able to make a recommendation for your rebuild. The next step is to ship your machine to FENN (located in East Berlin, CT) where our knowledgeable factory technicians will complete a full mechanical and electrical evaluation of your Swager. FENN will then provide you with a Comprehensive Swager Evaluation (CSE), which will outline customized recommendations based on your machine’s age, condition and intended application. An estimate of time, labor and materials required for the rebuild will all be included in your personalized CSE report. Upon review, you may choose to take back your Swager or proceed with the rebuild process. To learn more about FENN’s Swager rebuild program, contact us today! +1.860.406.7257.
