TM Services has been repairing and maintaining a wide range of industrial woodworking machinery for more than 30 years.

Its highly trained field engineers, who are amongst the most experienced in the UK, can repair most types of machinery. These include panel saws, wide-belt sanders, classical machinery, moulders and edgebanders.

TM Services prides itself 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 customer problems and providing prompt, cost-effective solutions.

Since its establishment in 1984, the service division has grown to become one of the UK’s most respected woodworking machinery service specialists. It offers a rapid response to breakdowns as well as delivering regular service programmes.

Maintaining wide-belt sanders is a key part of the division’s expertise. Sanding machines are different from other woodworking machines, requiring specialist knowledge when it comes to servicing and making major repairs.

While some repair companies struggle in this area, TM Services offers an unsurpassed service. 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. Services’ engineers regularly carry out to extremely high standards.

The engineers are dedicated to keeping every kind of woodworking machine operating at maximum efficiency at all times and increasing their life spans. They all carry relevant spares to every service call from TM Services’ vast UK stocks, reducing the likelihood of return visits. A next-day, spare parts delivery service is also provided.

TM Services also offers a pre-planned machine maintenance programme, whatever the size of the operation, which helps guard against possible breakdowns and expensive downtime. In addition, this service provides a safer, more productive working environment and fulfils statutory obligations under UK and European safety legislation.

TM Services’ director, Matt Pearce, comments: “Spending a relatively small amount each year on a service and maintenance contract, whatever the type of machine, is a valuable long-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.

“Equally as important, it makes sounds business sense to have a preventive maintenance programme in place to minimise the potential for breakdowns, rather than having to react after trouble strikes.”

Matt points out that a failure to adequately service and maintain production equipment might invalidate manufacturers’ warranties.

Many different kinds of woodworking operations rely on TM Services to keep their machinery running as efficiently as possible.

Timber frame specialist MTE in Leicester has been using TM Services to maintain its various types of saws – which range from band to wall saws – for well over ten years. Its operations director Kirk Eversfield says: “We are very happy with TM Services as throughout this time they have consistently performed over and above what you would normally expect.”

Another highly satisfied long-term TM Services’ customer is Lee Palmer, the maintenance manager at the prestigious Oundle School in Northamptonshire. He says: “We have a fully equipped joinery workshop on site and TM has been providing us with a machine maintenance service for some time. We are very happy with them as they give us a good level of service whenever we need it.”
