B&O’s Latest Control Retrofit: Giving Trusted and Reliable Equipment New Life

Bardons & Oliver has a long history of building the most dependable cutoff equipment available on the market. Over time, controls and electrical components deteriorate or become inoperable, while the mechanical components still function at a high level. This was the case with our latest retrofit customer located in Western Iowa. When working with the customer, our goal was not only to upgrade the electrical components, but also help provide more machining features and improve their overall equipment capabilities. To help give the 34ACL machine a boost we integrated new:

  • Allen Bradley Compact Logix PLC HMI Panel View Plus
  • Allen Bradley Kinetix Servo Drives & Motors
  • Allen Bradley Powerflex Spindle Drive & Motor
  • Auto Lubrication System
  • Independent Slide Operation
  • Programmable “Pecking” Cycle
  • Perforated Belt Chip Conveyor
  • 60” Automatic Finished Part Unloading System & Discharge Table
With these latest upgrades, they can now produce longer finished parts and provide additional machining capabilities to their customers. This recent 34ACL retrofit will continue to produce reliable parts for years to come. Along with the merit that 125 years of machine tool building brings, Bardons & Oliver equally provides top-notch technical support. We are committed to continuous improvement in designing, manufacturing and delivering high quality products that meet or exceed customer expectations.
