    Default Plug and Play CNC retrofit kit for an older CNC?

    I have some good old Iron. Milltronics Partner 1 CNC. I would like to remove ALL of the old electronics, wiring, motors, etc. and install a complete newer retrofit kit. But I don't really know what to go with. Since my machine was already a CNC, I don't need to upgrade to ballscrews or anything like that.


    I would love to find a set up that only really requires me to machine some brackets for the motors, mount the box, and simple jobs like this. My electronics knowledge is pretty basic. So something CLEARLY labeled and as close to plug and play as possible on the wiring side is preferable. Hopefully something to run directly from my own desktop computer and not have a large controller hanging off the machine.

    Any recommendations?

    I'm not sure about that model. Does it have a tool change? Most of the retrofit kits are not difficult to install. The hard part is when you need to tweek the PLC program for the tool changer. But that should be pretty easy to find pre configured ladder programs with Centroid or MachMotion.
