CNC machine tools represent a important capital investment of every machine shop. To maximize ROI (return on your investment), this equipment needs to be kept in top operating condition. Preventive maintenance is a recognized way to maximize the return on investment in capital equipment.  Our service technicians are trained to work with all of the machine brands that we represent.

What services are performed?

Changing oils and filters are regular maintenance steps. Preventive maintenance entails many additional steps to maintain high degrees of repeatability and extend the overall life of your equipment. Our preventive maintenance service technicians are experts at diagnosing problems before they occur. They perform a full CNC machine check-up.  Electronics, motors, pumps, hydraulics, lubrication, axis movement, spindle, tool change functions and alignments are all inspected and finely tuned as part of our preventive maintenance service. When you sign up for our preventive maintenance program, you will receive a reduced labor rate contract for repairs made as a result of our findings. Optional calibration services ensure that your machines are operating most accurately.

Why Laser and Ballbar Calibration?

Ballbar and laser calibration improves the performance and accuracy of your machine tool, optimizes your machines potential, and therefore improves product quality and also detects problems in advance before they down your machine tool. Accuracy and repeatability are critical to any machine application. With our laser and ballbar calibration services we will assess, monitor, and improve the static and dynamic performance of your machine tools. Laser and ballbar calibration is essential to establishing a known and repeatable level of your machines performance and process capability and therefore should be considered the first step in your machines process improvement. Ballbar calibration tests how well any axes are in synchronization with each other and how well they interpolate together. Laser calibration provides a comprehensive accuracy assessment in the axis ballscrew and drive system. We can then make adjustments throughout the entire ballscrew within the control to compensate for the inaccuracies in the screw pitch, yielding a highly accurate axis within less than a micron.
