Manncorp Trade in/Trade up Program

Trade in Manufacturing Equipment for Credit Toward New Manncorp Machines

Manncorp machines recently traded-in and certified for resale.

Improve operations at your company by trading in used manufacturing equipment purchased from Manncorp, and trading up for models that will better suit your needs. Whether you are interested in being as up-to-date as possible in an affordable way, or you are looking to improve problems your current line is causing, trading up is a great solution.

Why Trade In Used Equipment with Manncorp?

  1. Fixing Issues - SMT equipment that isn’t compatible with your company’s production can result in slower turnaround times, imperfect solder paste applications, and other common issues that lead to costly repairs. To avoid a reduction in the quality of your board output, your company can inexpensively swap old equipment for new.
  1. Low-Cost Upgrade - You can bring your production to the next level without breaking the bank. 50% or more of equipment costs can be spent on pick & place feeders alone, but Manncorp has kept the same universal feeders on all our MC-series machines, which helps eliminate the need for this additional investment. When you trade up for a new pick & place machine, you can keep your current feeders while upgrading the heart of your machine line-up.

For example, if you have an MC400 Automatic Pick & Place machine, but would like to upgrade to a faster MC389, your company can reduce costs by trading in the MC-400 but keeping the existing feeders.

Which Machines are Eligible & How Much are they Worth?

If you want to purchase a Manncorp machine, you are not limited to just trading in pick & place machines, and the trade doesn't need to be 1:1.

For instance, one recent Manncorp customer decided to trade in an AP430 stencil printer for an MC389 pick & place machine, while another customer traded in a CR4000 reflow oven and a magazine loader also for the MC389.

The trade-in value depends on the types of machines being traded, their model and age, and the service history a customer has on their used machinery. Newer manufacturing equipment and equipment that has been well taken care of will have higher trade-in values. To avoid a machine’s value depreciating, you should trade in sooner rather than later, resulting in a lower risk of loss.

Pro tip: If getting the latest and greatest industrial equipment is important to your company, this may be a good year to take a tax deduction. Interest rates are currently low, and good quality equipment is in high demand, resulting in favorable trade-in values being available.

The Equipment Trade-up Process

If you decide to trade up for new Manncorp equipment, we will pick up your used machinery and send you the new machinery. Once your used manufacturing equipment has arrived at our facility, it will be inspected by our team. Worn parts will be replaced, and everything will be quality-checked before the machine becomes part of our certified, pre-owned equipment offerings.

When deciding which machines to upgrade to, the machines listed on the Manncorp Certified Pre-Owned Equipment page are also options for you to use your trade-in value towards.
