Rebuild & Repair of a Bridgeport Manual Milling Machine for the Machine Tool Industry
(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
Dan's Machine Tool, Inc. provides sales and service to the machine tool industry with over 100 years of combined experience.
The project highlighted here was for the rebuild and repair of a Bridgeport vertical milling machine. The unit had seen many years of use and was in serious need of refurbishment. Our technicians hand scraped and completely 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. The head was also completely rebuilt and a new digital readout and table power feed were installed. 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. At Dan’s we specialize in bringing new life to older equipment; a project such as this requires only 4 to 6 weeks to compete, and is an economical alternative to the capital purchase of a new machine.
