Aftermarket Support & Services

No matter how good we make them, we can not keep our machinery from needing a replacement part from time to time. We understand how important it is to keep your mill operational. When it runs, it makes money.

A Full Inventory

Just like other companies stock nuts and bolts, we stock the common wear components for our machinery, as well as roll shafts, mill stands, gears and more . In fact, we maintain several million dollars worth of parts in our inventory. It’s this kind of inventory that allows us to ship 96% of our spare parts orders the same day or next day. What other roll forming or tube mill company can say the same?

Spare Parts

Although keeping an appropriate sparts parts inventory is very important, it’s only half the battle. It’s equally important to have the right people to assist you with identifying what parts you really need. Keep in mind that Formtek’s brands’ have sold a lot of equipment in our 100 year history.

If you’re not sure what part you need, try to get the serial number of the mill.  The number was stamped on the nameplate and on the top of the mill base on the entry side of the machine.  Another way to identify the mill is by knowing the original owner.   If none of this information is known, try to get the part number normally stamped on all the parts.  If none of those items are available, give us a call, so we can help.
