19 year old MasterTig still going for many years to come . . .

by Admin 2. July 2019 09:17

 Recently a MasterTig ACDC 3500 machine was recently spotted by one of our reps in a workshop during a site visit, the customer had written the machine off thinking it wasn’t worth being repaired due to its age. The MasterTig was bought in 2000 and used sporadically until about a year ago when a fault emerged, and it was no longer used.

After a quick assessment from our Service Department it turns out the water cooler needed repairing. With a service, repair on the water cooler and a very good clean carried out by our Service Manager, James the machine has been returned to the customer to be used for many more years to come.
