When adding or replacing machinery for metal decorating the customer is faced with a variety of choices.

Buying new or used is one of them, it is very important to remember what the equipment is used for, obviously in the case of a printing machine it is to decorate cans.

The decoration on the finished can cannot reveal to anyone what machine it has been decorated on. Whilst many claim that they can it is a fact that you cannot. This means that buying a new machine is not the only way to improve quality. A well-chosen used machine can print just as well as any new model.

Reliability is another factor, this is down to maintenance and upkeep. Some older models are very simple to maintain and operate, spare parts are readily available from many sources. Older machines were built to last and they do. When buying a machine originally built and designed for another material the original designed life should be taken into consideration.

A badly used, worn out machine will always be cheap and a questionable investment, a well maintained and reconditioned machine although seemingly more expensive makes very good economic sense.

Our machines are carefully sourced and picked, they can be bought as is or refurbished, Iether way it is a smartchoice.
