While browsing the internet recently, I was astounded by the number of used induction sealers for sale on “used equipment” websites.
While a few of the systems were relatively new, the vast majority were either extremely old, outdated, obsolete, or overpriced! The majority of the equipment was sold “as is,” with no warranty or guarantee that it would work at all.
I’m not saying that a good piece of packaging equipment can’t be found at a reasonable price from a used equipment dealer. However, given the low cost of today’s new induction sealing systems, why would a packager take a chance?
New semi-automatic systems can be purchased for around 2.5L. Automatic production line sealers are available for less than 6L each. New systems are guaranteed to function correctly and come with a full warranty.
In addition to the warranty, you will receive application assistance, readily available spare parts, and service support from an experienced staff. Used equipment dealers do not have the personnel or experience to provide this level of support.
So, if you’re thinking about buying a used induction cap sealer machine, give us a call for a quote on a new system. You might be surprised at how cost-effective it is.
At the very least, contact us with information about the used equipment you’re interested in, and we’ll be happy to give you an honest appraisal and tell you whether it’s a good deal or a dud!
