Keep Your Machine Tools Operating at Peak Performance
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 60 years dedicated to working with machines provide the highest-quality service your maintenance budget dollars can buy.
Our preventive maintenance inspection includes the following work:
- Check way lube, electrical, and mechanical systems for performance.
- Clean and lubricate the machine tool.
- Identify areas to watch for wear or misalignment.
- Provide a report of our findings, as well as any recommended repair work.
PM Program Options
At Peiffer, we provide three levels of preventive maintenance programs to meet your needs and budget. Each program can be further customized for your machines and their maintenance needs.

Scheduled 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 tool. Many long-time Peiffer customers prefer to pre-arrange maintenance calls during plant shutdown times to minimize the impact on their operations.
