• Custom Machining and Equipment Repair for over 50 Years

Reverse Engineering Services at Kiefer Tool & Mold

In the manufacturing industry some equipment or machines can become disenfranchised or have design flaws that are not initially apparent. Part of the services that we provide at Kiefer Tool & Mold is the reverse engineering [also called back engineering] of components for equipment or machines when documentation is no longer available or design flaws arise. Our staff of engineers, machinists and millwrights have over 50 years of experience in the field of manufacturing equipment repair and will be able to provide assistance in getting your machine back up and running. We provide a full inspection and documentation of the component along with material suggestions, assembly processes, machining, welding and fabricating. Our in house material stock can also provide a quick turn around time for expedited repairs or remanufacturing of components.  Kiefer Tool services include the reverse engineering of machine parts, manufacturing and industrial equipment components including replacement parts, tooling, dies, cylinders, bolster plates, gibs and more. This is performed so that we can replace parts and components that are no longer available or that need to be reinstalled right away.
