Machine Rebuilding Services
As machine rebuilders, Precision Service MTR helps businesses extend the life of their equipment and keep them in pristine condition. Machine rebuilding, also referred to as remanufacturing, involves taking machines apart for cleaning, repair, or replacement purposes. Machine rebuilding can restore equipment back to its original manufacturing tolerances, resulting in like-new equipment with improved longevity.
Machine Rebuilding vs Repair
When a machine is repaired, only the damaged components are worked on. Rebuilding, on the other hand, is a more transformative process. It involves completely disassembling a machine to restore each of its functions to like-new form.

In general, if a machine requires frequent costly repairs, opting for rebuilding might save you more money in the long term, while allowing you to extend the service life of your equipment. Machine rebuilding will restore your equipment’s systems and components, resulting in bringing your machine back to OEM specs..
Machine Rebuilding Process
Machine rebuilding services require comprehensive knowledge of equipment processes. The rebuilding process itself is complex and requires expertise in the machine’s alignments, hydraulic, mechanical, electrical, and control systems. During machine rebuilding, each system is disassembled, inspected, cleaned, and either repaired or replaced as required. The duration and complexity of the machine rebuilding process depend on the equipment being worked on.
In general, machine rebuilders perform five basic steps:
- Disassemble machine components completely to the machine’s base, clean, and inspect
- Way grind, scrape or replace linear guides. “Depending on machine”
