Full Circle Preventive Maintenance (PM) Program

Through the Full Circle Preventive Maintenance (PM) program, we handle equipment maintenance and servicing, allowing you to concentrate on your core business.

We match preventive maintenance with your production schedule, ensuring that your operations can continue uninterrupted. Preventive maintenance helps to reduce machine operating costs and extend the life of your equipment. This increases uptime and productivity for your shop.

Parts Availability Program

When you need a part that is not available, productivity can suffer. Through our Parts Availability program, we partner with you to understand your uptime needs, identify critical parts, and stock these parts in our warehouse so they’re available to you when needed, and delivered in a timely manner.

Repair & Rebuild Programs

We repair and rebuild fixtures and machines for all of our AFM, TEM or ECM processes. We rebuild the fixtures and machines on a scheduled basis and at competitive prices. This saves you time and money.

Our trained technicians:

  • Inspect and remove the fixtures
  • Replace only the worn parts
  • Perform thorough preventive maintenance of the fixtures
  • Re-assemble the fixtures and perform testing
  • Re-install the fixtures into the machine

Critical components like the chamber and mixing block of the thermal energy method (TEM) machine can wear out and lead to unsafe operating conditions. This can also lead to costly downtime and part replacement if not properly maintained.

Our trained technicians will inspect the components in your factory and provide a written report of the part condition, repairability and estimated cost, and estimate of remaining component lifetime.

Process Improvement Programs

A machining process is a function that covers the machine, fixture, consumable, and machining parameters. Any variation in these processes will cause deviation from the original setup.

Our application expert group can evaluate your process and implement changes to improve productivity.

Control Upgrades

PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and HMI (Human Monitor Interface) systems work together like the keyboard and software of a computer. Every 7-10 years these critical machine control systems become outdated, meaning that support may no longer be available as newer versions of the systems become mainstream.

At Extrude Hone, we work closely with our clients to proactively upgrade machine controls so that costly downtime is minimized.

Training Programs

We offer training programs for Extrude Hone equipment and processes. Training programs target specific customer needs and can be fully customized. From learning to operate a machine to understanding the science behind the process, from theory to hands-on operation, from a single person to large groups, we can cover it all.
