1994 – Began repairing and modifying sheetfed and web presses. After working as a service technician for over 10 years installing and repairing different types of production machinery finding many of the trip’s made completely avoidable if machinery were engineered/built with a little more care and intuition, found there is a need for something “better”.
Providing Engineering Services Since 1994
2009 – Started “Linemods LLC” out of my garage, purchasing a new manual lathe and a skid steer to serve as my “loading dock” – Outsourced most parts, which after a few years found a definite need for in-house CNC milling machine
2012 – Built an “outbuilding” to allow needed production, adding CNC mill, automatic saw and of course dedicated space also adding 2 employees to
2017 Renovated former vacant grocery store in Balsam Lake, WI adding another CNC mill, CNC lathe with bar feeder and New large capacity waterjet table. The added equipment has allowed us to increase turn times and quality along with “Value Add” service to our venue – We had designed some signage for Turtle Lake WI and Amery WI – These were “side projects” outside of the normal machinery projects that we truly enjoyed – We are now making trinkets out of our waterjet scrim always looking for new ideas!
Experts in Automation
We carefully designed plows, tipper plates bump/turns and other deck components to complement our systems.
In 2017 we developed our Stealth (I series) Ink-jetting conveyor (featuring synchronous Urethane transport belts that are virtually flat to the deck). Linemods filed patent for the “I series” in August 2018.
The “I series” originally designed for ultra-precise scanning of paper documents. The “I series” has features that make this a super accurate versatile transport system. Much more practical for ink-jetting than any wide belt system.
Our first I series inkjet system is the “Stealth 207” We can effectively transport products up to 1100 ft per minute.
Just waiting for Inkjet systems to catch up with us! We have truly precision designed finishing machinery – We can build very short & wide transports
In 2019: RDF 205 Modular Die Cutter
We have improved the design adding CE Certification. Features Mag/ Mag cylinder for pocket folders or Optional Mag/Anvil for kiss cutting. Can be installed downstream of digital press or just about any feeder.
We also have scrap units.
