Our Commitment to Excellence
Whether you’re seeking a new knife planer machine to perform heavy stock removal, upgraded dust collection to keep your worksite clean or a robust slag grinder for effortless dross removal and deburring, you can’t afford to waste your time and money on machines that fail to keep up with your production requirements. That’s where Timesavers comes in. Here are a few core benefits we offer all of our valued customers.
Outstanding Customization Options:
The problem with most metalwork and woodwork machinery manufacturers is that they offer very limited customization options, meaning that their machines are only effective on a select handful of applications. This is especially problematic for wood or metalworkers who are dealing with incredibly difficult materials or demanding work processes. After all, no one understands the needs of your shop better than you do. Unlike a vast majority of our competitors, we partner with our customers in choosing the exact specifications they need for each machine they order, including machine widths, head configurations, abrasive belt lengths, brushes, contact drums and more. The result? Outstanding machines that are personally tailored to your production processes, maximizing efficiency and ensuring your machines will continue to perform and excel for years and years.
Technical Machine Support
Timesavers is fully committed to offering the best customer experience in the industry. That’s why we’re continuously expanding our impressive parts inventory and hiring highly experienced tech professionals, guaranteeing maximum support. Moreover, one of our highest priorities is keeping your machines in peak condition to prevent production downtime. Not only do we offer a dedicated machine parts and service call center to quickly and conveniently answer your questions or concerns, but every machine we sell is engineered, built and supported by our factory-trained and certified machine service techs. Put simply, when you invest in Timesavers, you’ll never worry about finding machine parts and service support again.

Fortunately, Timesavers can provide your shop with any replacement part for all Timesavers/AEM, Sandingmaster and Grindingmaster machinery at affordable rates, meaning that you won’t have to sacrifice quality or productivity to avoid high maintenance costs.

Who We Help
Over our seven decades of experience in the sanding industry, Timesavers has designed production machinery for an extensive variety of applications. Primarily, our mechanical solutions are focused on wet and dry metalworking and woodworking productions, but we also offer high-quality machines for specialized finishing applications. Here’s a brief rundown of the primary customers we serve.
Woodworking is an intricate craft that necessitates familiarity with a number of materials and production strategies. For example, certain woodworking machinery and configurations that work flawlessly for orbital sanding might be completely insufficient for panel sanding. Moreover, certain woodworking processes require highly specialized types of machinery in order to effectively sand through the most durable materials. Fortunately, Timesavers produces many types of sanders for just about any woodworking application imaginable, including heavy stock removal, panel sanding, wide belt sanding and calibrating, orbital sanding, veneer and lacquer sanding, brush sanding and more. Most importantly, all of these machines can be fully customized for optimal results with the specific materials and production setups your shop utilizes. For a more detailed look at our full selection of woodworking machinery, be sure to visit our Wood Solutions page. Whether your team specializes in millwork, furniture or cabinet making, odds are good that we have the perfect sander for you.
Like woodworking, each type of metalwork demands a different approach when it comes to creating a smooth edge or perfect finish. This is especially true when contrasting crafts like precision grinding with heavy slag removal, with each requiring finishing machines of vastly different caliber. At Timesavers, we make it easy for metalworkers to find the right machine for each job by creating specialized solutions for deburring, straight grain finishing, edge rounding, calibration, slag removal and more. If you’re fed up with guesswork and taking chances on your metalworking equipment, then we invite you to design your own personalized Timesavers machine, choosing the exact features (including head number, types of heads, wet-vs-dry, abrasives, etc.) you need to attain the best finish possible for your parts and materials.

Special Finishing Manufacturers
Woods and metals are far from the only types of materials that benefit from a flawless finish. Many manufacturers dealing in rubber, vinyl, fiberglass, laminates and other special materials are constantly on the lookout for new and more efficient finishing machinery to speed up their production lines and create a more attractive and pristine product for customers and clients. As a result of our acquisition of Dubois Equipment Company, Timesavers can deliver a number of specialty finishing systems for mirror coating, plastic coating, ceiling tiles, glass coating, rubbers, vinyl, concrete, leather and more. Pair these industry-leading solutions with our exceptional dust collection machinery, and it’s no surprise why manufacturers of almost every sandable material in existence trust in Timesavers to make their production processes as fast, productive and safe as possible.
