This notification states the End of Life (EOL) for the following Marel Products: B35/31/32 PortionCutters.

END OF LIFE (EOL) for B35/31/32 PortionCutters

Since the last B35/31/32 left the production line here at Bornholm in July 2005, we have been able to supply spare parts and service for these machines. We have also made several upgrades and fixes when parts were obsolete.

However, we have reached a point where many of the upgrades are also obsolete.

In 2011 we announced that spare parts were no longer held in stock. Today the situation is that several vital parts cannot be obtained any more, for example:

  • Cameras
  • PLC – CPU and some modules
  • Touchscreen
  • Software
  • Knife motor
  • Inverters

Although upgrades are still available for some of the parts mentioned, we cannot any longer guarantee that we will be able to repair the machines.

Another issue is that many of our service technicians have been employed after we stopped producing the machines. Since we cannot perform service training on the machines qualified technicians are also becoming an inadequate resource.

Regardless of the announcement above, our service department will try to help our B35/31/32 customers when possible.

Best regards
