What Will I Receive as a Finished Product?
As suppliers and buyers of Used welding equipment, we sometimes get into stock a piece of equipment - a reliable and well built brand of machine which is in full working order but cosmetically looks a wreck. The paintwork will be battered and bruised, maybe the electrical control unit is nearing the end of it's life but the mechanical workings of the machine are still in good condition as it was built to last.
Westermans over the years have perfected the art of supplying a customer with a nearly new looking machine whilst offering them unbeatable value against the cost of a new machine - reason number one for choosing refurbished industrial equipment. This may bring more superior equipment that may have thought to have been 'out of budget' once, right into your current financial allowance. Choosing to buy refurbished equipment instead of new equipment also has the advantage of a quicker delivery time, instead of a matter of weeks, maybe even months you are looking at days. Meaning less downtime for your business and more profit!!
Take this PPE Pipemaster profile cutting machine. A machine which will offer a pipe cutting facility of most pipes. As well as cutting pipe ends to length, it can accurately cut 90 degree saddles, mitre cuts, right angle branches, complete mitre segments or bevel angle cuts, by using oxy-fuel cutting torches. As you can see, the machine looks very worn to begin with, however with a thorough refurbishment process including a paint re-spray and colour coding to suit your workshop if applicable,replacement of any parts needed and a full service - often including a video of the equipment under power prior to shipping - the machine is now like new! All in all the refurbishment of this pipe profile cutter took around 7-10 days.
