Bring Your Used Machine up to Modern Standards:
This procedure not only applies to Thermwood owned machines, but also to customer-owned machines to bring them up to today’s standards.

Thermwood Refurbished Machine - What Do You Get?
Every one of these machines has been completely refurbished by Thermwood Corporation. They have been completely disassembled, sand blasted, painted and re-assembled back to new machine specifications. All components have been inspected and either refurbished or replaced with new components. Once the machine refurbishment process was completed, the machines went through the same quality control testing as a new machine. The machine has a 1-year parts and labor warranty.

Here are just a few of things that are typically replaced during the refurbishment process (these are valuable upgrades that you will not receive when purchasing a used machine from an after-market dealer):

  • Machine Worktable

  • Spindle

  • Wiring

  • Power Track

  • Servo Drives

  • Control System.

All Refurbished Thermwood CNC Routers undergo an extensive process:

Why buy a Thermwood Factory Refurbished Machine instead of a used CNC Router:

  • You’re buying a machine that has been factory-dissembled, re-assembled and inspected.

  • Any components that do not meet factory specifications are replaced, if there is any question of a component’s integrity, it is replaced.

  • All Refurbished machines come with a full factory warranty - This warranty is one-year parts and labor.

  • You are getting a machine that has been enhanced with the new Thermwood SuperControl with the latest version of Windows technology. This is the same control that ships with new machines, and is designed from its very core to operate a CNC Router with efficiency and higher productivity. It is a fully multitasking control utilizing an Intel® Core™ 5th Generation Six Core Processor. It features a high level of hardware integration, extensive use of reliable surface mount technology and a built in upgrade path for future technology.

  • You are buying a machine that includes a full 5-day operators training course located at Thermwood Corporation in Dale, Indiana.

  • You are not buying someone else’s problems caused by neglect, as can be the case with buying a used machine from another source.  These machines are fully disassembled, painted and reassembled back to new machine factory standards.

  • These machines go through a complete quality control inspection to insure each machine meets factory specifications before they leave the factory.

  • A full technical service division for service and parts supports all Thermwood Refurbished machines. This includes Free Lifetime Phone and Forum Support, the ability to upgrade in the future, and support with program questions for your specific machine. One year of  Advanced Support (including Virtual Service) is standard with all refurbished machines. 

  • You may also choose to list your company with our Free Production Sharing Service.
