Servicing at TM Machinery

With challenging economic conditions leading to woodworkers hanging on to existing machines for far longer than usual, it’s more important than ever to be able to call on a highly reputable service company. For nearly 30 years, T.M. Services & Spares has repaired and maintained a wide range of industrial woodworking machinery. Founded in 1984 by ex-Wadkin engineer Tony Morris, the company focussed on offering a top class machinery maintenance service, which remains at the heart of the business today.

Its highly trained field engineers, amongst the most experienced in the UK, can repair and maintain most types of  woodworking machinery. These include panel saws, wide belt sanders, classical machinery, moulders and edgebanders. They pride themselves in being able to source parts and technical assistance for even the oldest of woodworking machines.

In addition, the back-up team at head office has decades of experience in resolving customers’ problems, providing prompt and cost effective solutions.

The company has grown to become one of the UK’s most respected woodworking machinery service specialists, providing nationwide coverage. It offers a rapid response to breakdowns as well as delivering regular service programmes.

While some companies struggle, maintaining wide belt sanders is a key area of expertise, and in this area that T.M. Services & Spares offer an unsurpassed service. Sanding machines are different to other woodworking machines and require specialist knowledge when it comes to servicing and making major repairs.

Its field engineers can repair and maintain most makes of machines used for general sanding, calibrating, veneering and finishing.

Fitting new feed mats, recovering and fitting contact rollers and converting oscillation systems are all highly complex jobs which T.M. engineers regularly carry out to extremely high standards.

Using a reliable service company which keeps adequate stocks of machine parts is vitally important

As sole UK sales agent for Striebig vertical panel saws, sister company T. M. Machinery knows that a pre-planned saw maintenance programme helps guard against possible breakdowns and expensive downtime.

In addition, this will provide a safer, more productive working environment and fulfil statutory obligations under UK and European safety legislation.

The service division is geared to keeping Striebig saws operating at maximum efficiency at all times and increasing their life span.

All of its service engineers carry relevant spares to every service call, from huge UK stocks, reducing the likelihood of return visits. A next-day, spare parts delivery service is provided, with spares available for all Striebig machines built as far back as 1968.

Spending a relatively small amount each year on a service and maintenance contract, whatever the type of machine, is a valuable long-term term investment. It’s just like taking out a service contract on a car whose warranty has expired. It will save money, ensure you keep within the law, and reduce the danger of accidents.

With ever more stringent Health & Safety requirements it makes sense to have a preventive maintenance programme in place to minimise the potential for breakdowns, rather than having to react after trouble strikes.

Failure to adequately service and maintain production equipment might invalidate manufacturers’ warranties. It could also mean costly downtime and lengthy disruption to business, which is something no-one can afford in these difficult times.
