Retrofitting Precix and Techno Routers

Over the years, we received requests from several major universities and companies to retrofit their Precix and Techno Routers that had outdated or inoperable controls. Our engineers chose the Flashcut Benchtop Retrofit Kit to rejuvenate these machines with the latest in precision multi axis and spindle speed control. These stepper and servo retrofits have since been launched across the country and the Routers are running better than ever.

Do you have a Precix, Techno or similar router that needs better controls?  Email our experts at sales@flashcutcnc.com or call us toll free at 888-883-5274.
