Bottom-Line Performance


RPD Facility Center

Sometimes, the best and most economical way to maximize your business' production is to rebuild or repair the machines you have at hand. Supported by skilled & qualified craftsman, breathing new life into your old equipment can result in a machine that runs just as well, if not better, than when it first hit your shop floor.

At RPD, our expertise is tailored to do exactly that. We rebuild and remanufacture your used and battered machining centers and grinding machines - specializing in serving automotive OEMs and other high-volume parts suppliers.

From updating obsolete controls, to adding a 5th axis, to reverse engineering, our team has seen it all. Call today at (847) 253-0340 or email our team at

What We Do
Subassembly rebuilding is a full or partial reconditioning of the machine that offers a quick turnaround time in bringing your machine back to like-new, OEM condition.
In this complete overhaul of a machine, RPD strips the machine down to the base, where all major castings are steam cleaned, sand blasted, primed, and painted and every machine is thoroughly tested by our engineers before returning to your shop floor.
Retooling & Retrofitting:
RPD also offers newly designed and upgraded tooling, as well as the ability to update hydraulic, pneumatic, or electrical control devices. Our team can also replace your machine’s controls with the latest technology to support your production demands.

We see the impact of rapidly evolving technology every single day. These technological advancements are particularly evident on a shop floor, where obsolescent control technology can render machines ineffective and inefficient. Today, it is not uncommon for shop floors managers to use machines that mechanically could work much more productively if updated with newer technology capable of supporting features available in newer controls.

Integrating a new retrofitted CNC Control into your machine can increase reliability, decrease future repair costs, increase your lines production capabilities all while leading to shorter cycle times. Trust the engineering experts at RPD, who with over 30 years of CNC experience can get your machine running like new, inside and out.

Our team of qualified machine tool technicians have the knowledge and experience of fully retrofitting JTEKT or FANUC software. From testing to installation, providing new controls or installing new drives and motors, our team has done it all - helping you bring your machine up to today's technological standards.
