Machine Tool Repairs & Rebuilds

Repairing Machines To Like-New Condition

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 and rebuild 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.

Calling Peiffer is the first important step to getting your machine back to full production. From decades of experience, we know the right questions to ask and how to proceed. We’ll tell you the truth about what needs to be done and provide you an honest quote. Bottom line is this — you don’t have time to waste nor extra dollars to spare: you need a Service Partner you can trust to get the Job Done Right — the first time.

Common machine tool repair operations handled by Peiffer include:

  • Machine Tool Disassembly and Reassembly
  • Machine Tool Evaluation/Inspection
  • Way Work (including scraping, alignment, and linear way replacement)
  • Spindle Repair and Rebuild
  • Ball Screw Repair and Replacement
  • Gearbox Repair and Replacement
  • Hand Scraping

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.
