Obsolete Equipment

If it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Right? Well, that may not always be the case. Keeping equipment that is obsolete could end up costing you more than an upgrade. You will have to compare the cost of maintenance and prolonged downtime against the cost of the upgrade to decide. When a piece of equipment becomes obsolete, the original equipment manufacturer has discontinued product production. This doesn’t mean you can’t get a replacement part, but they are often limited and costly.


The following list of equipment are becoming, if not already, obsolete:

Avery Weigh-Tronix
  • GSE-350
  • GSE-375
  • GSE-675
  • PC-820
  • PC-821
  • WI-125
  • WI-127
  • WI-130
  • WI-1310
  • 2500
Mettler Toledo
  • LYNX
  • PUMA


If you are currently using one of the listed pieces of equipment, we recommend you come up with a replacement plan. Eventually the equipment will get old and need repairs. When that time comes, replacement parts might not be available. Contact us for replacement options!
