Dennis Thone started NCS in 1980 having worked for an American OEM for 3 previous years. He started his career assembling machines from the ground up. From scapping castings for near perfect alignments, installing ballscrews, limit switches, servo motors, wiring all components to the CNC and then startup of the total system for shipment to the customers location.
After a brief employment with Burgmaster as Senior Applications Engineer and  Fanuc/Siemens joint venture, General Numeric Corp as a Sales/Applications Engineer, decided to go out on his own providing any and all services to the CNC community such as programming, maintenance repairs, or accessories like Touch Probes or 4/5th axis upgrades.
He started relationships with other maintenance and machine tool rebuilding companies that did not have the technical experience to attach a CNC to a manual machine or update existing CNC with new.Realizing a need to provide services for manufacturing industry.
We have retrofitted machines for the top machine rebuilding companies in California and have delivered to:
Amada Manufacturing - Buena Park, CA.
American Airlines Airplane refurbishing center : Tulsa Oklahoma
Northrup Grumann : El Segundo, CA.
Allied Mechanical : Ontario, CA.
NC Dynamics : Long Beach, CA.

and many more 

We provide much more than just service for our customers. Bring your tired electronics up to date high quality retrofit using the latest technology from Fanuc Automation or Mitsubishi Electric Automation. and now FAGOR Automation.

HIGH END does not mean HIGH COST. It means, we use our expertise to retrofit larger machines with a new control, motors & drives that, in some cases, would cost less than 1/4 the price that you would pay for a new machine.

We also can provide special engineering for turnkey applications such as family of parts programming, adaptive feed rate control, horsepower monitoring, tool life management, probing or in-process gauging can be including as part your retrofit.
