As Mattison, Bourn & Koch offers a wide variety of rebuild and repair services at our facility to help keep your Mattison surface grinder running well. We offer services for both horizontal and rotary Mattison surface grinders. Being the OEM means that we have the knowledge and expertise to service your Mattison surface grinder properly. We make the distinction between rebuild and repair, where our competitors do not. When we rebuild your Mattison magnetic chuck, we do not just repair it, we rebuild the entire chuck. Our in-house repair services allow you to repair only what needs to be repaired, cutting down on costs and downtime.
Some of the Mattison Surface Grinder repair services we offer at Bourn & Koch are as follows:
Mattison Rotary Chuck Rebuild
Mattison rotary surface grinders utilize a magnetic chuck to hold workpieces for grinding. Over the years, your Mattison’s magnetic chuck will lose its ability to effectively hold workpieces. This is when your magnetic chuck requires a rebuild.
Our Mattison chuck rebuild service is the most comprehensive chuck rebuild available. Our service technicians have decades of experience with rebuilding magnetic chucks. We don’t just repair your chuck, we rebuild to like new condition. You’ll get more service life out of a Bourn & Koch rebuilt Magnetic magnetic chuck.
We also offer “loaner” magnetic chucks in select sizes to reduce downtime while we rebuild your chuck.
We perform the following when your Mattison magnetic chuck is rebuilt:
- Complete disassembly and evaluation to determine root cause of failure
- Removal of magnetic coils and potting compound
- Winding of new magnetic coils
- Installation of new magnetic coils, potting compound, bolts, collector ring
- Reassembly of newly rebuilt magnetic chuck
Mattison CNC & PLC Retrofits
Bourn & Koch offers CNC & PLC retrofits for all makes of Mattison surface grinders. We can not only add CNC or PLC capabilities to your older, manual Mattison to increase capabilities, ease of operation and accuracy. We can retrofit the outdated controls on your Mattison to newer, modern, CNC or PLC controls. CNC & PLC retrofits for Mattison grinders can be performed at our Rockford, Illinois plant or in certain cases, on-site at your facility or shop by our field service technicians.
