• Lifecycle Management

    ll products go through a lifecycle from product design and introduction through to removal from the market at the end of life. Edwards’ vacuum equipment is no different, so to aid understanding of your current equipment we have designed an easy to use lifecycle model.

    Each of the 4 stages within the lifecycle model provide a clear definition of what to expect in terms of product support, technical assistance, service offering scope and complimentary service solutions.

    Obsolete Status:

Cost of maintenance is likely to rise during the obsolete phase. Product Upgrades and optimisation services available to increase your value

    End of Life Status:
