Machine Tool DRO/Scale Retrofits & Upgrades


Retrofitting machine tools and measuring equipment with digital readouts (DRO) provides improved productivity, greater ease of operation and advanced precision. Digital readouts can be retrofitted to tools already in operation, no matter the number of displayed axes. Scales are the determining factor for accuracy of measurement. Hammond Company can install new or upgrade existing linear encoder scales to protect the scanning unit and its carriage to increase accuracy.

Hammond Company installs DRO and scales for machine tools from companies including, but not limited to, Heidenhain, Renishaw, Acu-Rite and Metronics.
