Need Immediate Service?
Expert help for your machine is just one call/click away!
Thousands of good heavy machine tools “go to work” each day, as they have for generations. Today, they are joined by newer, lighter, more complex machines. Subsequently, machine tool repair, rebuild, and retrofit projects come in as many varied sizes and requirements as there are makes and models of machines. Peiffer has the depth of experience and tenacious ingenuity to get your machine tool working — the right way — again.

Whether machine repairs are made at your location or back at our shop in Pennsylvania, our team will troubleshoot what’s wrong, provide a plan, and make the repairs needed to get you up and running again.

Machine Tool Rebuilds
Machine tool rebuilding, the Peiffer way, involves detailed, “from the ground up” processes to assess, measure, dismantle, catalog, research, scrape, grind, paint, fit, align, and test run. Hydraulics, pneumatics, electrical, mechanical, safety — all aspects of machine operation come under the highest levels of scrutiny to assure like-new operation and accuracy.
You can rely on the machine tool rebuilders at Peiffer to get your rebuild job done right—on time and on budget. Our in-house facilities were built for this work, and our breadth of experience enables us to get it done:
