M-2000 systems have an excellent track record of reliability with many controllers having run for several years without incurring a failure. This is the kind of  "up time" required by 24/7 operations.

Maul Technology has satisfied customers around the globe that can attest to the integrity of its wide range of products and services. We are very conscious of the need to build and maintain close working relationships with its customer base. We feel the best way to achieve long lasting partnerships with our customers is to provide superior products and excellent service. This philosophy has been applied to the M-2000 product line. These systems are tools, very large tools, which must enable glass manufacturers to produce higher quality ware more efficiently.

We are constantly looking to improve these products by carefully considering customer requests for the incorporation of new features that will enhance their production processes. New software releases are offered on a continuing basis and as new technology is utilized, additional performance improvements can be realized from the installation of hardware upgrades that are made available from time to time.

On-Site Service

Our on-site service teams are experienced and arrive well equipped to align, set up and make whatever final adjustments are needed to maximize machine performance. They will provide whatever level of service you require, from relatively minor repairs to full scale installation and commissioning projects along with any subsequent service and maintenance needs thereafter.

We will provide a full service team or an individual service engineer as required, well supported by substantial stock holding of spare parts and a high quality manufacturing service of spare parts which are universal in their suitability for use on all major IS machines.

We take customer service to the customer with complete facilities for every form of on-site mechanical and electrical work. Teams of highly skilled service engineers are well equipped and quick in response for every customer operating need.

Machines can be quickly assessed and estimated for repair with detailed lists of parts. Modular sections and mechanisms can be refurbished and refitted or replaced with new components. Machine upgrading can substantially update existing installations to bring performance and response in line with the recent advances of control technology, with electronic timing, electronic conveyors and servo-controlled mechanisms.

Any form of machine process and configuration change can be engineered, together with on-site mechanism repair.
