About FMG

FMG Enterprises has been servicing and rebuilding vacuum pumps and peripherals since 1985 for customers that depend upon cost-effective, ultra-reliable vacuum systems. FMG is staffed by experienced equipment engineering professionals who continually work to achieve the best results for every customer.

FMG introduced the industry’s first certified pump program delivering superior quality and reliability by ensuring that each pump is rebuilt to meet or exceed standards established by their original manufacturers. The FMG Certified™ Pump program reflects the quality delivered to leading equipment manufacturers who demand superior components, rigorous inspection & testing at every stage of rebuild.

FMG specializes in Turbomolecular and Cryogenic vacuum pumps that are rebuilt for customers worldwide. Turbomolecular pumps are rebuilt utilizing specialized cleaning equipment and a testing and balancing system housed within an on-site clean room. FMG rebuilds all other OEM pumps and also buys, sells, trades, and customizes pumps to meet specific application requirements. Special discounts are available for DoD and University customers.

FMG is proud to have long relationships with major vacuum pump manufacturers including being an authorized service center for companies such as Kinney Vacuum, Stokes, and Alcatel. From the smallest vacuum pump to 10,000 CFM pumps, FMG has the capability to offer a broad range of products and services to meet any customer’s requirements. FMG’s Santa Clara facility has 20,000 square feet of manufacturing space, 10,000 feet of pump inventory plus a 500 square foot clean room.

FMG provides many product support solutions including Exchange Programs, on-site Pump Management Programs, Training Programs and Preventative Maintenance Programs.

FMG utilizes 22 plus years of experience to engineer a best-of-breed method in choosing the optimal combination of OEM and third-party parts to provide maximum pump performances.

FMG’s number one priority is to get the customer back on line as quickly as possible, no matter what it takes.

  • FMG is equipped with a computerized system to track and schedule preventative maintenance, as well as preserve historical data to monitor the life cycle of your vacuum pump.
  • Inventory control monitoring and action call control observation software is available to accommodate each customer’s needs. Reports include work orders, action calls, failure categories, transcription logs, budget forecasts, customer activities, etc.
  • Installation and start up of new pumps and support hardware.
  • Decommission or complete disposal of pumps from tools.
  • Tear down and cleansing of exhaust pipelines from pump to abatement systems.
  • Solution advice on system configurations and equipment for correct process application setup.
  • Safety walk-throughs performed by site Support technicians.

Start up / Shutdown Support

  • Shutdown / start-up support of pumps during all required shutdown events; including major holidays.
  • Removal of pump for repair from the ‘doghouse’ location or from the customers equipment.

Vacuum Pump Training Programs

  • Explanation and training on the assembly and preventative maintenance helps your team understand the inner workings of vacuum pumps. You get better acquainted with your systems to recognize early signs of trouble and to prevent premature failures, and costly downtime.

Vane to Dry Pump Upgrades

  • The cost to maintain a single vane pump in one year can easily cost more than upgrading to an FMG rebuilt Dry Pump. A Vane to Dry pump Upgrade ensures that you eliminate the risk of process contamination due to oil migrating from the Vane pump.
