Netstal is the latest injection moulding machinery manufacturer to offer a range of refurbished machines on the internet.
KraussMaffei began offering used test and laboratory machines on its web site and on eBay in May and now Netstal has set up a department for buying, overhauling and selling used machines as “Original Netstal Revised” and opened a section on its web site at www.netstal.com/2ndhand with a substantial stock list.
Netstal says its aim is to enable companies to buy machines secondhand, but overhauled by the original manufacturer. It is also opening its “revision” service to customers wishing to have existing machines rebuilt to bring up performance levels. Depending on the work done, it is offering a warranty of up to 12 months.
Machines are rebuilt to original manufacturing drawings and with original spare parts. Netstal says that machines can be delivered in “nearly new” condition.
