Machine-as-a-Service 

We know that capital expenditures are hard to come by, especially when you need to invest large capital sums to upgrade your manufacturing capabilities.

Our Machine-as-a-Service (MaaS) program is a way for you to upgrade your technology and manufacturing capacity without the capital investment. We can get new equipment on your floor immediately, moving your new machine from a capital expense to an operating expense.

Built on BlockChain. Built for Performance. Built to solve your manufacturing limitations today. Let's work together. 

The Arnold Machine, Machine-as-a-Service (MaaS) program allows you to have high quality, high performance machines without using CapEx funding.

  • Pay per Minute
  • Minimal Down
  • No Minimum Contracts

How it Works

After shipping and installation, you only pay per minute the machine is active and available. This allows you to use the machine as an operational expense instead of a capital expenditure. Unlike leasing, the MaaS program is no risk. If you’re not making money, we’re not making money. If the program isn’t working out, simply return the machine.

For data-driven insight on how the machine is working, we provide monthly performance reports and proactive replacement part deliveries prompted by machine count. Should an issue occur, you will have access to 24/7 live technical support.

Available Machines

Arnold Machine Chain on Edge 2 part Adhesive Coating Machine

The Arnold Machine Chain on Edge (COE) Adhesive Coating line is an automated 2 part coat adhesive spray line that can be either continuously moving or indexed and dwell for a programmable amount of time. The system allows for preheating the parts prior to receiving the first coat, first coat dry, second coat and final dry prior to offloading. It is designed to accommodate a wide variety of parts and apply coats to the outside/inside diameter to cylindrical parts, profiled parts, and many others. These systems are often seen in the rubber to metal bonding industry for applying the adhesive that adheres the rubber to the metal part.

Arnold Machine Rotary Basket Washer

The Arnold Machine Rotary Basket Washer is designed to accommodate a wide variety of part sizes and geometries using standard or specially designed baskets and fixtures. Best suited for batch, precision and ultrasonic cleaning, typical rotary basket washers come in 2, 4, 6 and 8 basket capacities. Rotary basket machines can be configured for spray, partial immersion or full immersion; and include ultrasonics as an option.

How We Use BlockChain Technology

By using SteamChain’s Secure Transaction Engine, BlockChain securely documents machine data and automatically executes real-time monetary transactions.

Built on secure blockchain technology, SteamChain’s Secure Transaction Engine for Automated Machinery (STEAM) leverages existing machine data as the framework for automated incremental transactions between end-users and original equipment manufacturers.

Each process is logged automatically, is free from tampering and made accessible via secure dashboards for OEMs and end-users.
