HELLER Services - Retrofit of a BEA 2

Retrofit Made by HELLER

New possibilities for your existing HELLER machines

The solid mechanical construction of HELLER machines guarantees longterm precision far beyond the depreciation period. After a service life of many operating hours, a machine tool's production performance and precision no longer satisfy current requirements. Partly this is due to unavoidable wear and tear but also to the changing requirements of today's machining tasks. We can make your HELLER machine fighting fit for new tasks. With a solution that is more cost-effective than buying a new machine.

The original HELLER Retrofit factory overhaul restores your existing machines to state-of-the-art condition. Our knowledge and quality awareness as a designer and manufacturer provide the perfect foundation for this. A factory overhaul pays dividends for older machines from the following series:

  • BEA – the ruggedness of this machine series is legendary. The highly rigid construction provides maximum precision. Give high-precision machining a new chance with a HELLER Retrofit.
  • MCP – the system machines from the MCP series offer maximum productivity, making them ideal for performance-oriented machining. A HELLER Retrofit helps to ensure that it stays that way.
  • MC 16 / 25 / 26 – dramatically reducing per- piece costs without compromising on functionality was the development goal successfully achieved with the MC series. Continue to benefit from these advantages and shape up your MC for your production tasks.
  • MCH – whether equipped with horizontal spindle or 5-axis swivel head unit, the machining centres from the MCH series are true all-rounders in production, providing a universal solution for any machining task.

Not only will we restore the performance of your machine, we will also increase productivity by up to 20%. With a control upgrade and numerous retrofit options and software updates, the performance of your machine will enjoy an additional boost.
