Our Rebuild and Refab Process

Bikle Mfg. inspectors fully inspect the machine after assembly while it is being rebuilt. This is our guarantee to you that quality is built in every step of the way. The machine is typically test run with production parts in the presence of the customer. Quality, workmanship, and customer satisfaction is a way of life at Bikle Manufacturing.

Disassemble

After disassembly and cleaning are performed, parts are inspected for wear and defects. You, the customer, are invited to witness any problems discovered and discuss repair options. Often the parts needing replacement, whether OEM or when unavailable, can be made in house for a substantial cost savings and a quicker turn around. Hydraulic, pneumatic, lubrication, and coolant systems can be restored or replaced.

Resurfacing

There are no shortcuts to a proper “way” restoration. At Bikle Mfg. we use the old fashioned approach that gives recognition to older machines for their rigidity and longevity. We plane for straightness, hand scrape for fit, and flake for oil retention. Hardened ways are precision ground. Original heights can be restored by using several accepted methods.

Rewiring & New Electronics

Plastics used in wire and electrical controls have a limited life when exposed to oils, heat, and coolants. We prefer to replace all wiring, terminal strips, relays, and operators’ switches. The latest specifications and codes are always followed. Electrical devices can be supplied to meet your standards.

PLC/CNC Controls

Providing and installing most brand-name PLC and CNC controls is not foreign ground to us. Our technicians have many years of expertise in this area and are constantly striving to stay in step with the latest technology. In the CNC world we are all well aware: if the control is down, so is your production.
