  • Machine Tools

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, November 15, 2022 - 

Being able to plan and deliver predictable results is key to maintaining a competitive edge in manufacturing. When it comes to machine tools, the company you choose to purchase from plays a big role in ensuring this success. 

What exactly should a shop look for in a machine tool company in order to rest-assure it can meet expectations? It starts before the machine tool is even purchased, by partnering with an experienced applications based company to ensure your machine tool investment is fully recognized. 

World Class Design and Detailed Assembly

The world class design and detailed assembly of Shibaura machine tools starts with the organization's culture, which is customer-centered. With the voice of the customer in mind, each machine is designed and assembled purposely to solve a manufacturing problem. From there we ensure these large, complex designs are manufactured to exact standards.

All machine tools are assembled at the Shibaura Machine factory undergoing strict quality control protocols. From using inspection tools to verify alignment and reviewing the geometry throughout the entire machine assembly process, every component is validated. This type of attention to detail means your shop can plan and deliver predictable results for the long haul. 

Leverage our tenured applications engineers to match the best solution to your machining needs. So whether that means manufacturing high precision parts or one-off prototypes you can expect improved productivity and on time delivery year after year.


While Shibaura Machine takes extensive measures to engineer world-class equipment, some still in use after 30+ years, it is inevitable that when you run machines day and night maintenance and replacement parts will be needed over time. This is why Shibaura Machine’s service and parts department makes it easy to connect with online service requests and provides over-the-phone support to connect you with technical support experts for urgent questions.

Reliable uptime is key to maintaining a track record for on-time delivery. Our team is committed to getting the right parts out quickly the first time to keep shops up and running with minimal downtime. In addition, our nationwide service technicians can come on site to make sure your machine is running at peak efficiency.


Delivering predictable results and keeping up with incoming orders also requires having trained machinists running the machine tools. 

Shibaura Machine’s training programs provide hands-on training with our machine tools and technologies. These classes bring hands-on training through a curriculum that is easy to understand and implement.

Customer Committed Partnership

For over the past 100+ years, Shibaura Machine has made a name for itself through its predictability and accuracy. We are committed to helping our customers advance and grow which includes ensuring our machine tools deliver reliable on-time service.
