End of Life & End of Service Explained
Learning that a system in your facility is reaching its "End of Life" or "End of Service" from the manufacturer can seem scary but don't fret! You don't need to buy a new system. We're here to answer all of your questions and are ready to service your equipment and keep it running like new for years to come.
So, what do these terms mean? Let's start with a comparison:
End of Life:
End of Life (EOL) indicates your imaging system has reached the limits of its primary market viability, and as a result, support for parts or service is limited for the original manufacturer.
Many third-party companies, including Block Imaging, are able to support these systems.
