Is it a stepper-motor machine?

It might be step-direction from the controller PC, or it might use serial comms to some "cleverness" inside the box.
Pictures of the things that the motor wires go to first would help with the guessing.

this machine is RS232 com port driven , so the option is to see if the electronics can be modified as Andypugh suggests , post a picture of the inside of the electronics and lets see .
if this using uses standard stepper driver boards then it could be straightforward , however if it's a custom board then it could be a major undertaking , and needing newer stepper driver boards etc , so it all depends if your electronics savvy
and are up to the task .
