TRAK Bed Mill Rebuilding Division

TRAK bed millTRAK bed mill rebuilding starts at the core by regrinding and hand scraping the ways.  This is what gives TRAK milling machines a distinctive feel. Bridgeport Machine Rebuilders will regrind and/or hand scrape all mating surfaces of the iron; column ways, dovetails, saddle, and the gibs. This provides a customized surface to surface fit.

All ways are reground and/or scraped to original tolerances, set by Southwestern Industries. 

The lubrication system is the most important component of the way surfaces. At times the lube system will be overlooked and for lack of a better word, neglected. We focus on this important part of the machine to insure a longer life for the machine rebuild. A poor lubrication system will certainly shorten the life of a CNC milling machine.

Southwestern Industries has produced a quality machine for the last 20 years, again knowingly or unknowingly setting the stage for machine rebuilders as a competitor. Our TRAK bed mill rebuilding service can and will produce a milling machine comparable to a new TRAK machine, for 50-60% of the cost of a new machine.
