As Motch, Bourn & Koch offers a wide variety of rebuild and repair services at our facility to help keep your vertical turret lathe running well. We offer services for all makes and models. Being the OEM means that we have the knowledge and expertise to service your machine tool properly. We make the distinction between rebuild and repair, where our competitors do not. For instance, when we rebuild your spindle, we don’t just replace the bearings and call it a day. Our in-house repair services allow you to repair only what needs to be repaired as well, cutting down on costs and downtime.
Some of the Bullard VTL repair services we offer at Bourn & Koch are as follows:
Motch CNC & PLC Retrofit
Bourn & Koch offers CNC & PLC retrofits for many makes of Motch VTLs.. We can add CNC or PLC capabilities to your older, manual Motch and also retrofit your Motch to newer, modern, CNC or PLC controls. CNC & PLC retrofits for Motch can be performed at our Rockford, Illinois plant or in certain cases, on-site at your facility or shop by our field service technicians.
Motch Spindle Rebuild
As vertical turret lathes age, their spindles and gearboxes will begin to wear. The bearings, bushings and gears and the spindle wear out, causing run-out and inaccuracy. While the spindle unit is here, it is fully inspected, cleaned up, reassembled, tested and painted. Whether the repair is small or large, Bourn and Koch is there to help with your Motch.
