CNC Retrofit Package

MS-Tech CNC Controls have been installed on hundreds of different machines, such as CNC machining centers, CNC turning centers, CNC grinders, 5-axis CNC machines, Flame cutters, CNC routers, CNC spinning machines, CNC plastic injection machines, etc. We can tailor and configure a retrofit package to fit your specific machine. Please fill in the Quotation Request linked here for a quote and pricing.

Alternatively, check out our eBay store for a partial list of our CNC packages. If your machine is not listed, please contact us directly or fill in the quotation request form and we will get back to you as soon as possible.



Core User Features & Functions:

The following core functions are only a portion of MS-Tech’s CNC control’s capabilities.  MS-Tech’s CNC system allows for full Fanuc G-Code compatibility. 

 The CNC control comes with the following major functions:

  1. Automatic mode for running NC program, including, single-step, optional stop, block skip, restart functions, etc.
  2. Edit mode for CNC program editing, including find/replace, G-code help, M-code help, go to a line/block, etc.
  3. MDI (Manual Data Input) mode for entering and executing CNC commands block by block, which may be selected from command history listing.
  4. Manual mode for homing, jogging by hand-wheel or by key, etc.
  5. Setup mode for tool offset and work offset data editing including offset measurement function, etc.
  6. Service mode for machine diagnosis, including ladder logic diagnosis, error message tracking, etc.
  7. Simulation function for verifying CNC programs before running
  8. Standard G-code and M-code programming per convention.
  9. Search program either by block number or by line number
  10. Inch/mm automatic conversion for tool and work offsets
The following features have been designed to enhance the user experience:
  • Built-in 3-D tool path display
  • Built-in conversational programming
  • Program down/up load from/to USB flash disk or RS-232C com port
  • Capable of handling long NC programs up to 300,000 blocks long
  • Super user-friendly -- most people master the operation within 20 minutes
  • Easy subprogram handling
MS-Tech's CNC Retrofit Package uses a +/- 10V command signal to interface with the machine and uses quadrature encoder signals for feedback.  If the machine uses resolver-based signal feedback, then third-party conversion board will be required.

Easy Installation:

MS-Tech’s CNC control is a combination of state-of-the-art quality hardware and advanced software for CNC machines.  Each component of MS-Tech’s hardware and software was designed specifically for use in its designated function.

 As a result, MS-Tech’s CNC retrofit kit contains the key components needed to install our system and have it running fully operational.   Servo drives and motors are not included in MS-Tech’s listed price.  While we do sell them upon request, typically MS-Tech’s CNC system interfaces with existing motors and drives seamlessly, allowing you to replace the CNC control while keeping the mechanically good components the same, providing a more efficient (in both time and money) retrofit process.  However, there are some machines that have existing drives incompatible with MS-Tech’s CNC system; please contact MS-Tech for more information.

 MS-Tech provides a full installation manual and allows for free, unlimited email-based technical support.   You will be surprised at how easy the control system is to install and use.

The following is provided to assist your installation process:

  •      Full installation manual
  •      Retrofitting checklist
  •      Suggested Wiring diagrams
  •      Licensed CNC Software pre-installed
  •      Machine specific Parameters pre-configured
  •      Cabling between major control units is provided
 MS-Tech offers an optional, quick installation service for its CNC control package, designed to minimize machine downtime.  Typically, two MS-Tech technicians can have a machine retrofitted and operational within 5 work days from arrival.  For information or a quotation regarding our installation service, please contact us directly via phone, email, or eBay message.

Core features for retrofitters:

The following features are intended to help retrofitters to expedite and simplify the retrofitting process.  MS-Tech’s CNC control package has the following features:

  • Built-in PLC ladder programming utility for I/O control
  • Built-in PID tuning utility for motor performance tuning
  • Built-in diagnostic utility for system trouble-shooting
  • Built-in macro for automatic tool change control

Intuitive Interface:

MS-Tech CNC is capable of doing complicated machining jobs with ease of operation and programming.  Our interface was designed to provide operators with the greatest convenience for day-to-day use -- a typical operator can learn how to use MS-Tech's CNC system within 20 minutes.  A full operator manual will be provided with the CNC system.

A customer wrote to us: “As we bring in additional employees and more people interact with the MS-Tech controls, the feedback is always very positive and everyone remarks how easy and user-friendly the controls are to use”.


 Servo Motors and Drives:

 MS-Tech’s CNC control system can interface directly with your pre-existing motors and drives for most machines.  However, new MS-Tech servo motors and drives can be ordered to prevent issues from outdated and worn drives, as well as save time by directly interfacing with the CNC control system.  These motors and drives are not included in the eBay price -- for more information regarding these items, please contact us directly.
