RECENT CUSTOMER REBUILD OF A BRIDGEPORT MILLING MACHINE

Review the rebuild and repair of a Bridgeport Milling Machine. Our experts completely in our shop the following:  re-aligned the X, Y, and Z axes. The table was removed, ground parallel, and scraped to fit the saddle. The saddle was then scraped to fit the knee, while the knee was scraped to fit the column. In this project the head was also completely rebuilt including a new digital readout and table power feed.

Finished in a durable gray paint, the unit was subject to comprehensive operation and functional testing to verify that it operated to factory specs, ensuring many more years of service. Typical timeframe for a project such as this is only 4 to 6 weeks, and a great alternative to a new Bridgeport milling machine.
