 *Arc Machines, Inc. is committed to providing excellent service and support to our customers during the entire lifetime of its products. However, units do reach an unavoidable stage and need to be discontinued due to; changes in manufacturing technologies; lack of availability of parts; the use of parts that no longer comply with regulatory guidelines. Certain Pre 2006 units may contain componentry that is obsolete and will be supported until stocks of obsolete components have been depleted. AMI encourages customers to take advantage of our new products, and in some cases, AMI may offer attractive upgrade options for pre 2006 production date owners of M207s. Please contact AMI or your local AMI Representative with questions regarding upgrades options.
