MekCare Service & Support FAQs
Mek has been supplying powerful Automated Optical Inspection systems for over 25 years. With each passing year customers have increasingly higher demands for support and inspection specialization of AOI/SPI systems in complex IT environments. Mek is continually investing in people and training to be able to offer its customers that higher level of support, and now also provides the option of taking out a service subscription to ensure that you are always covered.
As of April 1, 2021, Mek (Marantz) has introduced MekCare service & support packages. This service will be available for all customers worldwide. MekCare is a fixed cost service subscription for Mek AOI/SPI systems that are out of the warranty period. The MekCare service subscriptions guarantee full support, maintenance, calibration and service replacement parts (Warranty Plus) for your Mek system.
Below you will find some of the Frequently Asked Questions about the process for taking out one of our MekCare service plans.
What does MekCare mean for me?

I have several Mek (Marantz) AOI systems. Do I have to purchase a separate MekCare service plan for each system?
Yes, each machine should have its own MekCare service plan. To make it easy, the service plans within an organisation should be the same for all your machines. An appropriate discount will be applied to reduce the total amount. Please enquire about a suitable package. In general, for each additional machine an extra 5% discount on the total will be applied.
Is a MekCare service plan automatically renewed?
Yes, your plan will be automatically renewed unless cancelled 1 month before the expiry date. You will receive an automatic email reminding you of the pending renewal.
What are the consequences if I do not take out a MekCare subscription?
To be eligible for ongoing AOI / SPI support, at least the REMOTE plan is required. Also, access to the online
features included with the plans such as Software downloads and iMentor training are terminated. Without a
plan, normal service fees will be charged should support be requested.
