  • What does IN VIFA BOX mean?
  • Your order is in a sarcophagus with other orders en route to our national logistics centre in Spain.
  • What does D17/D17 - SSV or V mean?
  • D17V = hole of 90mm through the 45 width side D17 = 2 holes of 45mm length through the 90 width side. D17-SSV means only the the holes are not drill through the whole profile, it'S drilled only so deep that the fast connector fit in the hole. For a square profile 45x45 is the only difference if you select D17 for one side and D17V for the side then these 2 bore holes are turned about 90° to each other. Motedis -USINAGES
  • What is the Babble Factor?
  • Motedis fully automates the purchasing process in our online customer interface and we remove unnecessary services to offer you very competitive prices for small and large orders. In this way, industry standard products are available to anyone who can deal with a robot of a few words. Our customers don't need help with the application of the products, as they already know exactly what they need and how to use it to bring their ideas to life. The interference factor is calculated as follows: Our software analyses our experience with you as a customer. Through normal communication efforts, you get better prices and additional offers. Automatically, without the intervention of an employee. The system "likes" you (SLY). No more communication efforts with employee intervention, the system "doesn't like you".
