Machine Redesign and Rebuild Services Information

Machine repairMachine redesign and machine rebuild services redesign and rebuild machines. Machine redesign and machine rebuild services are used to enhance machinery capabilities and improve machinery productivity.


There are several types of machine redesign and rebuild services. Examples include:

  • machine repair
  • machine retrofit
  • machine reengineering

Machine repair is fixing any sort of mechanical or electrical device that is out of order or broken as well as performing routine actions that keep the device in working order, or to prevent trouble from arising.

Machine retrofit includes the installation of new parts or equipment onto existing equipment.

Machine reengineering is an engineering process used to transform an existing system into a new form through a combination of reverse engineering, restructuring, and forward engineering.

Other machine redesign and rebuild services are commonly available.


Machine redesign and machine rebuild services provide a variety of machine assistance to various industries. A machine redesign service will build a product to precise design specifications as well as fabricate and assemble, retool and rebuild, and reverse engineer. A machine rebuild service provides a simple face-lift to a complete redesign and rebuild of any machine, including mechanical and electrical. In many cases, a machine rebuilder can refurbish and rebuild older equipment at a fraction of the cost of new equipment. Machine repair includes cleaning and lubricating machinery, performing basic diagnostic tests, checking performance, and testing damaged machine parts to determine whether major repairs are necessary. Machine retrofit requires knowledge of a machine’s history as well as the goals of manufacturing. This allows for an automation controls retrofit project to be much more focused on the requirements of improved productivity and quality. Before re-engineering a machine, it should be determined whether or not any specific measures will be needed to guarantee the performance of the re-built machine. Re-engineering using modern axis and spindle drives on an original structure can be a technically efficient and cost-effective solution. Machine redesign and rebuild services are available to provide most industry redesigning and rebuilding needs.


Machine redesign and machine rebuild services are utilized in most industries for the redesign and rebuilding of existing machinery. The International Standards Organization (ISO) establishes voluntary guidelines for development, production, and installation. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) represents the United States in ISO. Machine redesign and rebuild services must follow machine specifications and adhere to maintenance schedules.
