When is a machine ready for the Multivac Resale website?
All packaging machines available via multivacresale.com are prepared for delivery to your plant with one goal in mind: to provide our customer with a ready-to-run machine that will immediately produce packages with trouble-free operation for years to come. The level of machine preparation depends upon the incoming machine condition. Upon completion of our demanding quality inspections and multi-point certification process along with sanitation, replacement of wear/tear parts, etc., the machine is prepared for shipment.
What does fully remanufactured mean?
Our full remanufacturing process begins with only the original machine chassis being retained. Every machine component that has experienced wear is replaced with new, genuine OEM MULTIVAC replacement parts, including chains, sprockets, bearings, motors, valves, belts, amplifiers, contactors, overloads, relays, hoses, etc. These new OEM components are installed onto the fully sanitized chassis by our OEM factory trained technician. MULTIVAC, Inc. uses only factory supplied fixtures which are assembled to factory certified specifications. We do not rebuild by simply replacing parts, we remanufacture.
Why is the “OEM Certified” designation so special?
You won’t find OEM Certified MULTIVAC pre-owned and remanufactured packaging equipment anywhere else.
