I am looking for different opinions on semi auto cut and clinch machines. I am currently using Multitroniks Ragen machines and looking to replace them ASAP. I am looking for suggestions of different machines.

Contact Systems is doing OK, I wouldn't worry about parts or service. I would call them if your looking at used, they probably offer a warrenty.

The 400 is probably the benchmark for semi auto through hole, I would recomend this machine regardless of how Contact Systems is doing. There are thousands of these machines out there and there are quite a few groups out there that provide service for them.

Contact Systems are nice and easy to program and operate. I would recommend the 400 series as well

Dear paul, I do not know where Barney is getting his information. I am the Sales Manager at Contact Systems, and we are not going out of business as Barney seems to think. We are alive and well with exciting and new products being introduced at the Apex 2004 show. As for the 400E, it is the standard of the industry. Contact Systems offers new and refurbished models for sale. Please call for more information
