Used injection moulding machines Gindumac to co-exhibit with Krauss Maffei at Fakuma 2021
Used machinery dealer Gindumac will be co-exhibiting with KraussMaffei at Fakuma — International Trade Fair for Plastics Processing — in Friedrichshafen, Germany, from October 12-16, 2021. The two companies have already been linked by a strategic partnership for the used machinery business for several years.
The German company Gindumac markets used injection moulding machines worldwide via its transactional online platform and takes care of the holistic transaction processing from machine evaluation to logistics. Since the middle of this year, the company has also been investing increasingly in the immediate purchase of used machines.
In the cooperation with KraussMaffei, the focus this year is particularly on the services “old against new” and “Asset-Management-as-a-Service”.
New machine comes, old machine goes
When plastics engineers are planning new investments, Gindumac offers a free, market evaluation of the machines in use, for all makes. This enables companies to include a realistic sales value of the used machine in their planning for replacement or new investments even before a decision is made.
In the cooperation between Gindumac and KraussMaffei, used machine sales and new machine purchases can be handled in this way as a complete package in a customer-oriented “old against new” model.
“The objective with old-against-new is to offer maximum value and planning security for manufacturing companies. The new machine comes in, the old machine goes out. All at the best possible price, taking into account production requirements, market value, marketing period and delivery times,” says Benedikt Ruf, Managing Director of Gindumac GmbH.
Value management for machine fleets
Gindumac’s expertise in machine evaluation also plays a central role in the “Asset-Management-as-a-Service (AMaaS)” service. The aim is to support plastics processing companies with value appraisal, global marketing, professional payment and logistics processing as an integrated value management system for their machinery.
Whether valuation, marketing, relocation or new investment, Gindumac offers the necessary support in both decision-making and implementation.
With the knowledge of marketing potentials, investment decisions on direct investments, relocation options, sale & lease back programs or governmental investment support can be better weighed in practice. At the same time, Gindumac provides support during implementation. AMaaS offers a modular and flexible solution for machine park management.
At this year’s Fakuma in hall A7, booth A7-7303, trade visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the evaluation and marketing of used injection moulding machines.
