CNC Preventative Maintenance

CNC preventative maintenance is the most effective way of ensuring a smooth and trouble-free production facility. Ensuring that all machines are properly monitored and all necessary maintenance actions are taken according to an appropriate schedule.


We can offer a tailored monitoring and preventative maintenance programme that will address every aspect of long term performance including: general condition checks, geometry checks, oil and filter replacements, scheduled replacement of consumable items, etc. This can be linked with direct production monitoring and data collection using Factory Wiz software. To ensure that your machines enjoy a long, productive and breakdown-free life call us now to discuss the right preventative maintenance package for you.

CNC Maintenance Training

Not every job needs a full call-out visit from a service engineer. With the right training, many routine maintenance tasks can be carried out by your own staff. And when breakdowns and crashes do occur, sometimes all it takes is a quick call to the Engineering Solutions service desk and a trained machine operator can fix the problem straight away.

CNC Maintenance Consumables

We maintain a comprehensive stock of all maintenance consumables, such as wipers, filters and bulbs, that need to be changed at regular intervals. A quick call to our service help desk and your products will be on the way. We can arrange consumable purchasing packages for you to simplify ordering and allow call-off of parts as required.

We also hold stock of critical spares for next day delivery for all our principal brands. Alternatively, e-mail the spares department for availablity and delivery here >.

Test Equipment

When we install and repair machines we use specialised equipment such as test bars to ensure that they are correctly aligned and working to the highest possible levels of accuracy. If you want to ensure the continued accuracy and alignment of your machines, despite crashes and multiple setups, you can purchase the same equipment from us to use in your own facility. We can advise you on the appropriate equipment for your machines and we will train you how to use it to maintain consistent accuracy and identify areas of concern at an early stage.
