Expert help for your machine is just one call/click away!
At Peiffer, we believe that the key to maintaining machine “up time” is preventing “down time.”
Whether it is newly purchased or a long-serving workhorse, your machine tool will benefit from regular inspection and maintenance. Our trained ears, precision tools, and more than 65 years dedicated to working with machines provide the highest-quality service your maintenance budget dollars can buy.
Scheduled Machine Tool Maintenance to Avoid Downtime
Through regular inspections and maintenance, you can hopefully avoid costly emergency repairs. Most machine tools benefit from PM service at least once a year. This schedule can be adapted based on a variety of factors, including the use of the machine, materials being run in the machine, climate, and the environment the machine is running in. PM service is recommended for all machine tools – regardless of age of the machine.
For our PM work, we work within your schedule to inspect and service your machine tools. Many long-time Peiffer customers prefer to pre-arrange machine tool maintenance calls during plant shutdown times to minimize the impact on their operations. Don’t have time to shut down? Let’s talk about how we can embed a Peiffer team member into your operations for predictive or preventive maintenance over a period of weeks or months.
