Spare parts: Nothing is Better than the Original

Müller customers swear by original Müller spare parts because these are designed to optimally match the system and application of each Müller machine. Due to efficient distribution centres at all Müller production centres and in ten additional countries, most spare parts can be dispatched on the same day and delivered by courier within 24 hours.

    End-of-life announcement for older generation machines

    The longevity of machines manufactured by Jakob Müller AG may be a blessing for you as our customer. For us as a manufacturer it is however an increasingly difficult task to provide after sales support to our customers' satisfaction at economically justifiable costs.

    The search for alternative suppliers and the re-engineering of parts which are no longer available, specifically components of older generation electronic control systems, invariably lead to spare parts prices which we cannot expect you to pay.

    Therefore, we have decided to discontinue services for following machine types, of which the production was ceased approximately 20 years ago:

    Narrow fabric weaving machines

    • NB...: all types (up to 1998)
      Discontinuation of service. Orders for all-time requirements possible up to 30 September 2017.
    • NCR, NCS (up to 1984)
      Discontinuation of service. Orders for all-time requirements possible up to 30 September 2017. Most parts will remain available, as the basic machines have many similarities to other NC machines.
    • NFJM/NFJK SEC2 (up to 1995)
      Parts for basic machines will remain available, as they are mostly identical with later NFJM/NFJK versions. Parts for the SEC2 jacquard will no longer be available, but retrofitting of the NFJM with the SPE2 is possible.

    Warp Crochet Knitting machines

    • RA, RB, RBJK
      RDJMT, 2, 3 (up to 1999)
      RD3MT1, 2 (up to 1999)

    Label weaving machines

    • MVC (SEC/ UNI1) (up to 1995)
      Parts for basic machines will remain available, where they are identical with later MVC versions. Parts for the SEC jacquard will no longer be available!
    • MBJ1 (SEC/EJM, UNI1) (up to 1992)

    To those customers who wish to continue to operate these machines we are offering the opportunity to place a final order with us for the associated spare parts to cover their future operational needs. These parts can be ordered until 30th September 2017 at the latest with following restrictions:

     

    Parts which are already obsolete, and for whatever reason cannot be manufactured or procured anymore, will not be re-engineered or re-produced with new tooling etc. In case such parts are still available from stock we will sell them on a "first come first served" basis.

    Affected customers should contact our spare parts department as soon as possible so they can build up an adequate stock of spares. Please mark your corresponding requests for offers and orders with "All-time requirement 2017".

     

    After the 30th of September 2017 we will no longer accept any orders for the spare parts in question and will also not be in a position to provide any helpdesk support or field service for these machines. 

    Should you have any questions regarding this announcement please contact your agent or the Jakob Müller subsidiary serving your company.
