CNC control monitors and other monitors in manufacturing facilities often use old, out of date technology. Find out today if you have CRT monitors in your facility and what we can do to improve these systems. At K+S Services, we offer industry-leading CRT repair and conversion services to update your facility.
CRT Replacement and Restoration
A CRT, or cathode ray tube, screen is the precursor of LCD. This older technology uses millions of phosphor dots that are struck by an electron beam to create an image. Blank spots on your monitor or can lead to programming issues and an inoperable screen may render your machine inoperable.
Choose our repair services to restore your monitor. K+S can work with your existing technology and use our inventory of both modern and obsolete components to repair your current setup without changing the footprint or functionality.
Repairing a CRT monitor allows you to continue to use the same tried-and-true system you have been using with your equipment. A CRT monitor is not as efficient as an LCD screen, but it can still provide a reliable display for your systems.
Because of the inefficiencies of a CRT monitor (slower startup, increased energy usage and smaller viewable screen area), many industrial facilities are switching to LCD monitors. An LCD, or liquid crystal display, offers many benefits, none more important than the extension of operational life.
Ask your K+S Sales Representative about the pros and cons of conversions and repairs. Depending on the type of monitor you’re using, a repair project may be more affordable, but can cost more in energy usage over time. Either way, you can be confident that your monitor will be fully functioning to your required specifications.
Benefits of LCD Monitors
Replace your old monitor with a modern LCD screen to improve your energy efficiency, reduce heat emission and enjoy a 100% viewable screen. Compared to a CRT monitor, LCD monitors have very little to no electromagnetic radiation.
A high-resolution screen can assist your technicians in operating the controller. A CRT screen is difficult to read, particularly in a busy, fast-paced working environment. LCD screens offer higher resolution and a wider range of viewing.
Once you switch to LCD, you’ll enjoy far less energy usage. A CRT monitor uses up to 250% of the power of a modern LCD screen. While the monitor power usage may be minor compared to your industrial equipment, this can still result in real energy savings over time.

Extensive Inventory of Replacement Parts
Our inventory includes a wide range of components you need for a quick repair or conversion project. We remanufacture components to restore your old CRT monitor and can provide complete replacement services to upgrade your existing system. Because of our diverse inventory, we can accelerate the timeline of many of our services to reduce downtime.
Recycling Your CRT Monitors
Upgrade responsibly by using our recycling program. Defective or outdated electronic devices, hydraulics and motors all contain usable components. Some contain components that aren’t environmentally friendly and need to be disposed of properly. We offer recycling services to responsibly remove obsolete systems.
Recycling not only reduces your impact on the environment but also reduces the cost of removing inoperable equipment. These services can avoid the junk removal costs that you would otherwise pay to clear your electronics, motors and other obsolete equipment.
