Maintenance & repair services

Investing in a Tolerans stitching solution provides access to a complete service program tailored to suit each customer’s needs for preventive maintenance and repair actions including remote support.

We offer several types of service contract where our service technicians make one or more visits per year for preventative maintenance and machine cleaning. We also replace specified wear parts and test run the stitcher in the press at full production speed. If you use stitching frequently, we can design a service contract that best suits your needs.

Maintenance instructions

The function and high-performance of our machines are dependent upon proper maintenance, some of which the customer can perform. In order to make maintenance easier and procedures simple to understand, Tolerans machines are supplied with detailed maintenance manuals. To further clarify the various procedures, we’ve created videos and animations, which can be seen here.
