Should you replace your old Nordson Melter with a New Melter?

With budgets tight and not much capital available, companies are looking for alternatives to buying new.  

Sometimes the decision is simple to keep the old and repair or rebuild, but who do you trust to perform good quality work?  

A good analogy for comparison is an old car that seems to run okay, but with a minimal amount of money, you can make the old car run well and last many more years with no monthly car payment.

Same with packaging line equipment, such as the Nordson melters.

Write down the pros and cons in order to make your decision.

Example:

New
Repair/Rebuild
PROs
1 year warranty on complete unit
6 month warranty on unit w/exception of circuitry
