When you purchase an E.H. Wachs® product, you’re partnering with the industry leader in portable weld prep machine tools. That partnership means the equipment you buy today will be supported with the training, service, parts and upgrades that keep these machines working in the field, day in and day out, year after year.
Incorporated in 1883, E.H. Wachs has been manufacturing quality products for nearly 135 years. Each product builds on the strength of the previous one, while incorporating new technologies, materials and innovations to advance the power and versatility of these superb machine tools. Our DynaPrep MDSF has so many unique and patented features it makes lesser machines look and feel outdated. New modules for the MDSF help future-proof your investment - our latest FFC and FFR modules for example add flange facing and ring grooving capabilities, often saving the need to bring multiple machines onsite.
At Wachs we back up our motto of Complete Support each and every day. We support our standard machines with a great warranty, but support means more at Wachs – support means partnering with a manufacturer who understands what it takes to complete a project on time and under budget. Like the ability to rent machines, to manufacture custom tooling, to modify standard products, or design and build customized machining solutions.
Support includes training options, at your location or ours. And support also means that, unlike other machine tool manufacturers, when you partner with E.H. Wachs for equipment you’re not competing against us for service. At Wachs we take pride in saying we don’t just build machines, we build relationships - one customer at a time.
