Machine Tool Renovation


With years of experience and modern machinery, DARPAMotion Ltd. is able to restore and modernise machine-tools, from exchanging the control unit to their complete mechanical restoration and automation. Our highly qualified and experienced professionals, modern machinery and technology enable us and our partners to do our jobs economically, efficiently and quickly.

The company’s in-house developed and manufactured products let us modernise machine-tools with great flexibility. Our PLC products can replace obsolete wired, relay-based logic with digital control. This soft PLC system controls digital I/Os and even processes power-meter cell signals, allowing implementation of further functions with a simple software update. Our DCSD servo amplifiers and CPS power supply make modernization of older, brushed DC servo-driven machine tools and machining centres economical by keeping their feed drive motors. Our CNC controller can be customised according to the customer’s needs, for example, we can create a unique UI for our customer’s system.
