F.A.Q.

Ajax machine Serial Numbers are generally located on a nameplate on the front, left side of the machine with the exception of the Wire Drawers which tended to have nameplate on the Operator’s side towards the back (exit end) of the machine. Some machines will also have serial number on the control panels.

CECO (Chambersburg) machine Serial Numbers can be located by finding your specific machine’s parts sheet in our “Parts” tab and the Serial Number location is noted (typically on the front center and the bottom right side of the machine).

Machine manuals can be purchased by submitting a Purchase Order and providing the machine’s Serial Number to our Sales department who will then generate either a digital or hard copy manual which includes the operator’s manual, maintenance manual, parts sheet drawings, general assembly drawings, etc. The price of a manual ($500) includes a Certificate redeemable for $500 off of the next parts purchase for this machine. [Minimum order of $1,000 or more and must be placed within 90 days of receipt of the parts manual.] Please allow two weeks for delivery.
