  • Refurbished 8270 XLIs

    Does anyone know if Qubica/AMF steam cleans refurbished machines before painting them? If so, I'm wondering if this process could damage and /or rust out bearings and assemblies.
    Also wondering exactly what refurbished is supposed to include. Besides the new motors and electrical on these, do they check and replace old bearings and main assemblies such as pit rollers, PBLs, Light ball sensors, table drive shafts, etc. Thanks,

    Drill should be able to answer your question as that is the machine he bought from AMF a few years back I believe.

      The ones here are usually sand/bead blasted rather than steam cleaned....

        Drill did indeed get rebuilt 70XLi's a few years back, but I don't know how they were cleaned. I belive I have seen a pic somewhere showing machines being cleaned with steam. I would think the water woud or could get in bearings and kill them in a hurry, but I would think the machines would be mostly disassembled before cleaning.

          This is correct! The front end is completely stripped prior to the steam clean and the painting.
