Structural Machinery Solutions
Many companies claim to “fully refurbish” machines, but often this translates as: “wiped down with an oily rag and sold with a tailgate warranty”. That’s not the way we roll at SMS, Inc. Fact is, we are not a general used machinery dealer: as a former Kaltenbach daughter company and the sole North American importer of Kaltenbach saws for over 30 years, we refurbish Kaltenbach saws only. We know these machines inside out, and our service/parts guys have a combined 90+ years experience on Kaltenbach machinery.
When we say “fully” refurbished, we mean fully: each machine is stripped down literally to the last nut, bolt and washer. Everything is cleaned, checked and tested. Worn, broken or missing parts are replaced (with correct OEM items). The machine is rebuilt to original factory specifications - and performs as new. For an additional fee we can have the machine electrostatically repainted.
In the case of KKS (steel) machines, the gearbox – the heart of the machine - is an extremely heavy-duty, three-shaft, two-stage helical ground design. On every KKS we refurbish the ‘box is stripped down, all gears, bearings and gaskets replaced with new, before the ‘box is rebuilt to original factory tolerances, ready to provide decades of reliable service.
Installation, start-up and operator training is included in the machine price, just like on new Kaltenbach equipment, and the entire machine is covered by a 6-month full parts & labor warranty.
Payment terms on refurbished machinery are 50% down, with balance due before shipment/collection. On completion of the refurb’ you may inspect our work and if you don’t like what you see, you can cancel the order, and we will refund your down payment in full, on the spot, with no questions asked.
Note: we can also refurbish your existing Kaltenbach machine, and bring it right back to original factory specification, at a fraction of the cost of a new machine!
