Services & Solutions

At American Machines, we service what we sell, as well as machinery sold by others.

We supply punches, dies, saw blades, machine tool repair parts and service for most fabricating machinery in use today. Call or email to discuss your needs and one of our tooling or repair specialists will attend to your requirements, or recommend someone who will be able to help.

Need replacement blades or forming tooling? Often we can have what you need in your hands by the next business day. Have an OSHA guarding issue? Need a custom production forming line? We can help.

 

Custom Solutions

  • No two projects are identical and often machine tool applications require modification and customization to meet the requirements of the manufacturing process. We offer the technical expertise to deliver your project on time and within budget.

 

On Site Installation

  • American Machines offers on-site installation assistance and training with factory trained technicians for most of the machinery we provide.  This assures your project is completed right from the start and your machine is making a return on your investment in the briefest amount of time.  Additionally, our experienced and knowledgeable technicians may often suggest ways of optimizing the machine’s integration into your operations which may further enhance your company or facility’s productivity.  In cases where on-site installation by our techs is not practical or logical in the case of a very small machine or small investment, our staff stands ready to assist by telephone, email and fax during your installation process.  We want to earn your business and look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.

 

Maintenance and Repair

  • We service what we sell.  Whether it is a half million dollar investment in a 600 Ton Cincinnati Autoform Press Brake with the latest high tech productivity and  enhanced options, or a six thousand dollar 45 Ton Ironworker we stand ready, trained and capable of keeping our customer’s equipment working for them and returning on their investments. Our technicians are often trained and familiar with competing brands and we service many of our competitor’s machines as well as discontinued orphaned (by manufacturers who are no longer in business) equipment.  Our phones are answered live 24/7.  We respond to you on the next business day with a plan to get your equipment up and running in the shortest time practicable. Recently, we put a new control console on a discontinued 5/8 in. x 8 ft. shear (not sold by us) manufactured by a Danish company which has been out of business for 5 years.  This machine was purchased by the US Navy in Italy and is installed onboard a maintenance ship.  Without this 2 lb. component, the machine was useless and had been so for nearly ½ year before we were contacted.  We offer CNC controls and retrofits on large, expensive turning and chip making machines such as G & L.

 

Tooling and Parts

  • We can procure tooling and parts to your exact specifications at competitive prices, including many OEM parts.
