Ajax CNC Phone/Email Tech Support

AjaxCNC offers you several options for technical support:

1. Remote CNC Tech Support session via TeamViewer

  • All new controls include 2 hours of Phone/Remote Desktop technical support
  • Support: (814) 353-9256 (Press 4 or ex 108/112)
  • Please email a report of your system to tech@ajaxcnc.com prior to calling

Phone support is best handled in conjunction with a TeamViewer connection to the machine. This allows us to be MUCH more efficient and thorough in investigating your issues.

We strongly suggest a remote Tech Support session to deal with any issues you may encounter and is the fastest and most valuable way to get everything solved properly. A remote session will allow our techs to quickly home in on any of your issues and get them resolved ASAP. A remote session is much faster than going around and around via email and worth the $90 an hour to get the system running properly. Our techs go thru a checklist of items and often correct things that you might not have even been aware of that were not setup properly. We can’t stress enough of how valuable this service is.

Just listen to what a recent customer has to say about the remote support session:

“A few weeks ago I was at a crossroads with a few problems I could not resolve. After a few weeks of lost sleep and stewing about it, I reluctantly called the help line and spoke to one of the tech’s. I then stated my problems and was transferred to Scott who initially sold me the conversion kit. Scott was able to take remote control of my computer (I have a separate card installed for my LAN) and together we resolved most of my issues in one hour. Total cost $90.00.

The point of my post, is that this is probably the best investment I’ve made since I bought the conversion kit. I wish I had done it weeks earlier as I now have a functioning machine.”
