GlassBuild PREVIEW 2015

Dillsburg, PA. (August 24th, 2015) GlassBuild America 2015 ATLANTA


The 2015 edition of the Glassbuild America show in Atlanta is almost here! This will be a big year for JMC as we are showcasing the latest version of our fabrication centers; and an entirely new line of equipment for the commercial market.

In addition to proudly displaying one of our latest SFMC fabrication centers, the really big news is we have partnered with Mecal of Italy to provide our customers with a world class option for their CNC processing needs. The Mecal line is one of the premier CNC machine manufacturing companies in Europe. “Mecal by Joseph” will be the same line of quality Mecal equipment; sold and serviced by Joseph Machine Company in the USA.

To further expand our product line, we have also partnered with KMW Engineering of Germany to offer corner cleaners. The KMW cleaners, serviced by JMC here in the USA, will be an excellent choice for our customers. Adding these quality lines of equipment to our already vast selection of standard and custom equipment, truly makes JMC your one stop shop for machinery. The sales and service staff will be eager to work with our customers, and demonstrate the diverse selection of equipment being displayed.

The same JMC team our customers have relied on for years will be in attendance, as well as some new faces. While at our booth please introduce yourself to Tim Minne; our new commercial products director. Tim brings many years of experience in the commercial market to JMC and will be a great asset to our customers looking to improve their quality and efficiency.

Another new face will be that of Sotirios (Steve) Birbas. Steve has a strong background in electrical, Allen Bradley, and machine commissioning. Steve has been to the Mecal facility and will be heading up our efforts to service the Mecal line. The entire service staff, led by our service manager Glenn Lookabill, is ready to assist our customers on the new lines.

Like Timbuk 3 said, “the future’s so bright we gotta wear shades!” That’s exactly how we are feeling here at JMC. Please come and join us in booth 2247 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta Georgia. The show runs September 16th through the 18th starting at 10:00 AM each day. See you there!

Trio 206 & 206X PLC’S discontinued

We have been notified by our vendor that the Trio controller 206/206X, used in many of Joseph Machine Company machines, will be discontinued later this year. Inventory of this controller still remains; but JMC is taking a proactive approach in order to minimize the impact to you, our valued customer.

The discontinuing of the 206/206X will eventually require a conversion to the newer version Trio on affected machines. We recommend adding Trio controllers to your spare parts inventory. We encourage all customers to order replacement 206/206X Trio controllers over the next few weeks, to ensure availability as demand increases.

The conversion plan for replacing the current Trio with the new model (MC405) is complete. The plan involves the following:

  • Physically replace and re‐wire with the new TRIO controller

  • Re‐tune servo(s)

  • Update PLC and HMI programs


It is possible that some of the work required can be completed by plant maintenance personnel; but we recommend a JMC technician be onsite to complete the more technical aspects of the conversion.


Our goal during this time is to make this process as streamlined as possible. In order to manage this conversion properly, and to minimize the impact to the customer, we have assigned a team of resources. As stated above, this WILL require a JMC representative to be onsite. Through a combination of customer and JMC resources, it will be possible to perform the necessary work. In summary, we ask that customers do (2) things.


  1. Order replacement TRIO controllers in the short term

  2. Plan for a JMC technician to complete the conversion as time permits to minimize interruption of production

As always, we value our relationship and hope to work together to get through this conversion. As questions arise, please don’t hesitate to contact Glenn Lookabill This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Sincerely,

Doug Campbell returns!

Dillsburg, PA. (July 25th, 2013)  –  "Mr. Campbell returns": 

Doug Campbell began work at Joseph Machine Company on June 23rd, 1997Doug has been an accomplished assembler for JMC but over the years and as time goes by it's easy to begin to take your workplace for granted.... 

Doug served our country in the Army from 1981-83 so he thought that maybe a new job associated with a military based organization might just scratch the itch to work elsewhere.  Doug began working at the Lincoln Military Housing facilities doing warranty type maintenance. He felt making his way back to a military based work structure might provide an environment he would appreciate.

After months had passed, we here at JMC noticed regular visits at JMC from Doug while he was employed at Lincoln Military Housing. So when after approx 9 months had passed and Doug was seen talking to Scot Hamm (our production manager), it did not cause us to think anything other than he was here for a regular visit. This time, however, Scot happened to be looking through a file of resumes in search of an additional assembler as the workload here was continuing to grow. Scot asked Doug "when can you start?" and shut his folder of assembler candidates.

Doug soon started back and the answers he gave when asked why he chose to return to JMC were "I wasn't challenged enough at my new job" and " I missed it here". Doug was asked if anything had changed while he was gone and I was not too surprised to hear that he felt that the work atmosphere had gotten even better.  That improvement was credited to the shop floor personnel. "That group has continued to improve in attitude and in quality over the past year, and the work atmosphere is simply better because of it" Doug said.
Doug takes pride in his work, pride in his country and in that fact that the machines he helps to assemble are made right here in the USA. That desire to serve our country continues in the Campbell family as his son Shawn has been serving in the Navy for 7 years.
