terms of sale, delivery and payment

These Terms of Payment apply for companies, legal entities governed by public law

and public law special funds. Our goods and services are supplied exclusively on the

basis of the following conditions. Any deviating purchasing conditions of the customer

not expressly recognised by us will not become part of the contract through acceptance

of the order. By placing the order and accepting the goods we deliver, the customer

confirms its consent to our terms and conditions.
1. Offer and contractual conclusion
All our offers are always subject to change without notice unless otherwise explicitly

agreed. Our delivery contracts are based on the latest version of our catalogue.

Dimension and weight values, as well as illustrations, drawings and data, are non-

binding and can be changed by us at any time. Therefore, deviations cannot be ruled

out and do not justify any compensation claims against us.

Orders  are  considered  accepted  only  when  confirmed  by  us  in  writing.  If,  for

organisational reasons, the customer does not receive a separate confirmation upon

the delivery of goods, the invoice shall also be deemed the order confirmation.
2. Prices
The prices are in EURO, ex-works, excluding VAT, packing, freight, postage and

insurance. Unless otherwise agreed, our list prices valid on the day of delivery

shall apply. For orders below 50 EUR goods net, we must make a minimum quantity

surcharge of a 10 EURO for cost reasons.
3. Tool costs
Unless any other agreements have been reached, the tools fabricated for the purpose

of executing the order shall remain our property in all cases, even if we have invoiced a

tool cost component separately.
4. Payment
Unless otherwise stated on the invoice, the purchase price falls due for net payment

within 30 days of the invoice date (without deduction of discount). Invoice amounts of

below 50 EURO are due for payment immediately.

In case of payment default, we shall be entitled to charge default interest. The amount

corresponds to our interest rate for current account credits at our main bank; the

minimum however being 8 percentage points above the relevant base interest rate

applied by the European Central Bank. Moreover, in case of default following written

notice  to  the  customer,  we  shall  be  entitled  to  cease  to  fulfil  our  obligations  until

payments are received.
5. No set-off
The customer can set-off only with legally confirmed or undisputed counterclaims.
6. Right of withdrawal in case of delayed acceptance or payment and insolvency
If  the  customer  fails  to  accept  the  goods  in  due  time,  we  shall  be  entitled  to  set  a

reasonable period of grace, after which we can dispose of the goods elsewhere and

supply the customer on a reasonably longer term. Our rights to withdraw from the

contract under the provisions of Section 326 BGB and demand damages for non-

performance  shall  not  be  affected.  If  the  customer  fails  to  pay  for  the  goods  once

payment is due, we shall be entitled, at the end of a reasonable period of grace we

have set, to withdraw from the contract and demand the return of any goods already

supplied. Section 323 BGB remains unaffected in all other cases.

If the customer applies for the opening of insolvency proceedings, we shall be entitled,

prior to the ordering of security measures by the insolvency court, to withdraw from the

contract and demand the immediate return of the goods.
7.  Customer-specific fabrications/project fabrications (custom fabrications)
Customer-specific  fabrications  require  binding  information  on  design,  quantity  etc.

in written form at the time of ordering. For manufacturing reasons, we reserve the

right to supply up to 10% above or below the order quantity. Technical modifications

or  cancellations  are  subject  to  any  costs  incurred.  The  return  of  customer-specific

fabrications is impossible.
8. Delivery and packaging, transfer of risk
The delivery date is non-binding; although stated to the best of our knowledge. It is

subject to us receiving correct, defect-free and complete deliveries. The stated delivery

dates relate to completion in the factory, starting on the day the order is accepted by us.

Delivery is EXW (ex-works) in accordance with Incoterms 2010. Therefore, the costs

are borne by the customer. The risk is transferred to the customer when the goods are

passed to the person, company or facility nominated to execute the shipment. This

applies also for partial deliveries, or if we have assumed responsibility for delivery and

installation. The risk shall be transferred to the customer even in the case of delayed

acceptance.

In  the  absence  of  specific  shipping  instructions,  we  shall  proceed  as  we  deem  fit

and without any obligation to the cheapest or most expedient method. The customer

agrees that the order can also be delivered in parts, insofar as this is reasonable for the

customer. We shall charge a 5 EURO processing free for shipping to third parties that

we supply on behalf of the customer.

The packaging complies with the packaging ordinance. Disposable packaging shall be

charged at cost price. The packaging cannot be taken back.
9. Performance impediment and/or impossibility
If we are hindered in the fulfilment of our obligation due to the onset of unforeseeable

circumstances, which we are unable to avoid despite reasonable effort in relation to

the nature of the circumstances (e.g. operational interruption, delay in the delivery of

important raw materials, defects in the delivery), the delivery time shall be extended

by a reasonable period, insofar as the supply of goods or services is not rendered

unreasonably difficult or impossible.

If  we  have  to  accept  that  these  circumstances  are  not  only  temporary,  we  shall  be

entitled to withdraw from the contract either in whole or in part.

If  the  supply  of  goods  or  services  becomes  impossible,  the  customer  shall  not  be

obliged to furnish its own contractual service. Section 275 BGB applies mutatis

mutandis.  If,  however,  the  customer  is  solely  or  predominantly  responsible  for  the

circumstances that led to impossibility, it shall remain under an obligation to render

the return service. The same applies if this circumstance occurs at a time when the

customer is behind schedule with acceptance.
10. Samples/returns
Samples shall be provided only against payment. If samples or models are provided,

a credit note shall be issued with the subsequent order if the order value is 125 EURO

net or more. Goods can be returned only by agreement, although custom fabrications

are excluded from such return.

In the case of returns for which we are not responsible (e.g. incorrect order), we shall

charge a processing fee of 10%, the minimum value, however, being 7.50 EURO.
11. Retention of title
The goods shall remain our property unless full payment of all claims and/or until

the cheques provided for this purpose are honoured. The itemisation of claims in an

ongoing invoice, as well as balancing the account and the recognition thereof does

not affect the retention of title. The customer is entitled to sell on the retained goods

during the ordinary course of business. However, the customer is not permitted to

pledge the goods or transfer them by way of security. It shall assign its claim ensuing

from the selling on of the retained goods to us in advance. The customer shall be

entitled to collect the claim to the extent that it has fulfilled its obligations towards us.

At our request, the customer shall be obliged to state third-party debtors and we shall

be entitled to report this and the assignment.
12. Property rights
We reserve property rights and copyrights to all contractual documents such as

drafts, drawings, calculations and cost estimates. Such documents must not be

reproduced or disclosed to third parties without our consent. Any rights to patents,

utility models etc. reside solely with us, insofar as such patents have not yet been

filed. Our products are allowed to be replicated only with our written consent.

If objects are fabricated according to drawings or samples, the customer shall warrant

that any third party property rights are not infringed by manufacture or delivery. If

a third party forbids manufacture and delivery on account of property rights, we

shall be entitled to stop manufacture and delivery immediately. The customer shall

be obliged to reimburse us with all costs incurred and indemnify us from third party

compensation claims. Compensation claims by the customer are impossible.
13. Warranty
If the customer agrees with us a particular quality of the goods, we shall base this

agreement on our technical delivery specifications. If we have to deliver according to

customer drawings, specifications, samples etc., the customer shall assume the risk

for suitability for the intended purpose. If, after the contract is concluded, the scope

of goods or services is changed at the customer‘s request and this impairs the quality

or suitability of the goods, claims for defects on the part of the customer shall be ruled

out, insofar as such impairments are caused by the customer‘s requests for change.

The time at which the risk is transferred is decisive for the contractual state of the

goods. Wear and tear of wearing parts caused by ordinary use does not constitute a

defect. Claims for defects are ruled out in the following cases in particular: Unsuitable

or improper use, incorrect installation and/or commissioning by the customer or third

party, normal wear and tear, incorrect or negligent handling - in particular excessive

use -, unsuitable equipment, replacement materials, chemical, electrochemical or

electrical influences, unless such defects are caused by ourselves.

If  the  goods  contain  a  defects,  we  shall  provide,  following  a  reasonable  period  of

grace set by the customer, either a replacement or a repair as we deem fit. If such

subsequent performance fails, the customer shall be entitled to either reduce the

purchase price or withdraw from the contract. Any further warranty claims are ruled

out. In case of negligible deviations from the agreed quality, no claims for defects

shall be recognised.

The discovery of defects must be communicated to us immediately in writing. In the

case of recognisable defects, however, within 10 days of acceptance, in the case of

non-recognisable defects immediately after they become evident. The warranty is 12

months, starting with delivery of the goods ex-works.
14. Liability
With the exception of harm to life, body or health on account of a breach of duty by

ourselves, our liability shall be limited to intent or gross negligence.
15. Place of fulfilment, place or jurisdiction and governing law
The place of fulfilment for all obligations ensuing from this contractual relationship is

D-70734 Fellbach.

The place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes ensuing from the contractual relationship

is the court responsible for the headquarters of Andreas Maier GmbH & Co. KG.

All disputes ensuing from the contract or regarding the validity thereof shall be finally

decided by a court of arbitration in accordance with the Court of Arbitration Ordinance

of the German Committee for Arbitration Court Procedures or the Conciliation and

Arbitration  Arrangement  of  the  International  Chamber  of  Commerce,  recourse  to

ordinary courts of law being excluded. The legal dunning process, however, remains

permissible.

German law shall govern (BGB and HGB). The applicability of the UN  Convention on

Contracts for the International  Sale of Goods  (CISG) is ruled out.
16. Severability clause
If  individual  provisions  become  legally  invalid,  the  remaining  provisions  shall  not

be affected. The legally invalid provision shall be replaced by regulations that most

closely reflect the economic purpose of the contract with reasonable consideration

for the mutual interests. The publication of these Terms of Sale, Delivery and Payment

renders all previous versions invalid. This does not apply for any contracts concluded

prior to announcement.

The mosT imporTanT on The subjeCT

of vaCuum Clamping TeChnology

WhaT is a vaCuum?
A vacuum is the state in a space which is free of matter. In
practice, we already call it a vacuum when the air pressure in
a space is less than that of the atmosphere.

uniTs of measuremenT used
The most common units are the pascal and the bar.

>

100 Pa = 1 hPa

>

1 hPa = 1 mbar

>

1 mbar = 0,001 bar

vaCuum Clamping sysTems
Vacuum clamping systems are used above all in the wood,
plastics and non-ferrous metals industries for quick,
simple machining; they are compatible with CNC machine
tools. Here vacuum technology is used in connection with
special handling systems, for example in order to fix an
aluminium plate and machine it from all sides. This increases
productivity and cost-effectiveness: the fixing does not
cause any damage to the workpiece, and no laborious, time-
consuming aligning of the workpiece is required. The latest
clamping systems allow attachments of various sizes and
shapes to be exchanged in a very short time, thus facilitating
flexible handling of a wide range of workpiece shapes.

WhaT does vaCuum Clamping mean?
In vacuum clamping, an underpressure is generated under
the workpiece being clamped, i.e. a pressure differential is
created which presses the workpiece against the clamping
plate. Thus the workpiece is not, as one might think, actually
“sucked“, but is rather pressed against the vacuum table.
The sliding force of the workpiece depends on its surface
structure, the pressure differential and the area on which the
vacuum acts. The larger this area is, the better the holding
forces

Why does a vaCuum generaTe a holding
forCe?
All surfaces of an object are subjected to an even pressure of
approx. 1 bar by the surrounding atmosphere. The integrated
Venturi nozzle or an external vacuum pump then removes
some of the air from under the workpiece being held, thus
removing part of the pressure load on that surface. What
remains is a one-sided pressure on the top surface of
the workpiece, whose size depends on the degree of the
vacuum. Generally it is 0.7 - 0.8 bar. This means, for example,
that a vacuum of 200mbar (absolute pressure) is generated.
The pressure differential acting on the workpiece is therefore
800mbar (approx. 0.8 kp/cm²). The size of the clamping force
is then only dependent on the clamping area.

general informaTion

>

During workpiece machining, check the operating vacuum

continually on a pressure gauge.

>

For heavy-duty cutting, always secure the workpiece with

stops.

>

Only ever use sharp tools which are suited to the material

being machined.

>

In particular with small machining areas, keep the

machining forces as small as possible, e.g. through the use
of small grinding diameters at high speeds.

>

Before workpiece machining, check that the workpiece is

located securely.

Force (F) = Pressure (P) x area (A)

example for order no. 374504 (400 mm x 600 mm):
Vacuum plate 40 cm x 60 cm = 2400 cm²

Calculation of the retaining force (F) in Newtons (N):
2400 cm² (A) x 9.3 N/cm² (P) (pressure difference) = 22320 N

Conversion:
100 N ~ 10 kg

The benefiTs of amf

vaCuum Clamping TeChnology

>

The AMF vacuum clamping plate can

be operated using compressed air
and the integrated Venturi nozzle, or
with an external vacuum pump.

>

The height-adjustable eccentric stops

absorb the sliding forces, and can be
adjusted individually to the workpiece
height.

>

Easy positioning of workpieces by

fastening with stop pins. These also
absorb the sliding forces.

>

Irregularities in the workpiece surface

are compensated for by the sealing
cord. The workpiece contour can be
represented optimally using the grid
pattern on the plate.

>

Lateral grooves allow the vacuum

clamping plate to be fastened to a
baseplate or onto the machine table
using AMF clamps No. 6325.

>

Fixtures can be positioned on the

vacuum clamping plate with a
precision of ±0.01 mm using one
locating pin and one diamond pin
each.

>

The compressed air escapes into the

machine chamber on the back of the
vacuum plate. The suctioned liquid (eg.
cooling lubricant) can flow of through
the same outlet.

>

Depending on the size of the

clamping plate, workpieces can be
clamped using more than one suction
point. This can also be used to clamp
multiple workpieces – even different
ones.

>

For efficient changing of the

vacuum clamping plate, it can be
used in combination with the AMF
“Zero-Point“ clamping system. This
minimises setup times and increases
machine runtime.

Vacuum clamping plate, grid 12.5

No. 7800

Design:

The vacuum plate has grooves and suction points on its upper side. By inserting the sealing cord, one

or more fields can be defined for the desired workpiece size. All suction points are interconnected.

Easy positioning via holes for stop pins or lateral, height-adjustable eccentric stops.

Lateral grooves or fastening holes allow the vacuum clamping plate to be fastened to a baseplate

(e.g. machine table).

Fixture plates can additionally be fixed using a sword or locating pin. It is also no problem to integrate

the vacuum clamping plate into the AMF „Zero-Point“ clamping system size K20 (see the AMF

catalogue „Zero-Point Systems“).

Application:

The workpieces being machined are clamped through generation of a vacuum by means of the

integrated Venturi nozzle technology (included in scope of supply) or with an external vacuum pump.

By means of individual grid allocation it is also possible to clamp and machine multiple, different

workpieces at the same time.

Typical applications are milling and grinding operations.

The vacuum clamping plate is ready to use right away – all of the necessary components are

included in the scope of supply.

Advantage:

-  The AMF vacuum clamping plate can be operated using compressed air and the integrated Venturi

nozzle, or with an external vacuum pump.

- Cost savings through use of the Venturi nozzle

-  Low compressed air consumption, thus low operating costs

Example: 1 m³ of compressed air costs 0.0078 €. At an average consumption of 40 l/min, this

corresponds to 0.0187 €/h.

- Multiple suction points, thus flexible grid allocation and clamping of multiple parts possible

- Vacuum plates can be combined with each other

- High holding forces

- Universal use

- High coefficient of friction allows secure clamping of unmachined workpiece surfaces

- Sealing cords compensate for small irregularities in the workpiece surface

- Distortion-free, vibration-free five-sided machining

Note:

Operate only with dried, filtered, non-lubricated compressed air! Venturi nozzle useable up to 60 °C.

Max. Suction volume against atmosphere: 21.8 l/min.

Operating pressure for max. suction volume flow: 3.5 - 4.0 bar.

Please observe the installation instructions 7800.

On request:

Special dimensions are possible.

Vacuum clamping plate, grid 25

No. 7800

Design:

The vacuum plate has grooves and suction points on its upper side. By inserting the sealing cord, one

or more fields can be defined for the desired workpiece size. All suction points are interconnected.

Easy positioning via holes for stop pins or lateral, height-adjustable eccentric stops.

Lateral grooves or fastening holes allow the vacuum clamping plate to be fastened to a baseplate

(e.g. machine table).

Fixture plates can additionally be fixed using a sword or locating pin. It is also no problem to integrate

the vacuum clamping plate into the AMF „Zero-Point“ clamping system size K20 (see the AMF

catalogue „Zero-Point Systems“).

Application:

The workpieces being machined are clamped through generation of a vacuum by means of the

integrated Venturi nozzle technology (included in scope of supply) or with an external vacuum pump.

Rotary vane vacuum pump

No. 7800VP

Application:

If compressed air is present where the vacuum clamping plate is used, we recommend using the

AMF rotary vane vacuum pump. It ensures reliable continuous operation of the clamping plates used.

Due to its small design, the pump can be attached directly to your machine.

The AMF rotary slide vacuum pump can be used for vacuum clamping plates up to a size of approx.

4,200 cm².

Note:

Replacement oil can be ordered under order no. 428722.

On request:

Other sizes and suction performances are available on request.

Application:

The liquid separator effectively removes condensate (water) from the vacuum clamping system and

so protects it from contamination.

Advantage:

- Removal of 99% of the contained liquid

- maintenance-free

- system’s operation and maintenance costs are minimised

- easy to install (before the vacuum pump)

Note:

The set is supplied in the assembled state.

Orders  are  considered  accepted  only  when  confirmed  by  us  in  writing.  If,  for

organisational reasons, the customer does not receive a separate confirmation upon

the delivery of goods, the invoice shall also be deemed the order confirmation.
2. Prices
The prices are in EURO, ex-works, excluding VAT, packing, freight, postage and

insurance. Unless otherwise agreed, our list prices valid on the day of delivery

shall apply. For orders below 50 EUR goods net, we must make a minimum quantity

surcharge of a 10 EURO for cost reasons.
3. Tool costs
Unless any other agreements have been reached, the tools fabricated for the purpose

of executing the order shall remain our property in all cases, even if we have invoiced a

tool cost component separately.
4. Payment
Unless otherwise stated on the invoice, the purchase price falls due for net payment

within 30 days of the invoice date (without deduction of discount). Invoice amounts of

below 50 EURO are due for payment immediately.

In case of payment default, we shall be entitled to charge default interest. The amount

corresponds to our interest rate for current account credits at our main bank; the

minimum however being 8 percentage points above the relevant base interest rate

applied by the European Central Bank. Moreover, in case of default following written

notice  to  the  customer,  we  shall  be  entitled  to  cease  to  fulfil  our  obligations  until

payments are received.
5. No set-off
The customer can set-off only with legally confirmed or undisputed counterclaims.
6. Right of withdrawal in case of delayed acceptance or payment and insolvency
If  the  customer  fails  to  accept  the  goods  in  due  time,  we  shall  be  entitled  to  set  a

reasonable period of grace, after which we can dispose of the goods elsewhere and

supply the customer on a reasonably longer term. Our rights to withdraw from the

contract under the provisions of Section 326 BGB and demand damages for non-

performance  shall  not  be  affected.  If  the  customer  fails  to  pay  for  the  goods  once

payment is due, we shall be entitled, at the end of a reasonable period of grace we

have set, to withdraw from the contract and demand the return of any goods already

supplied. Section 323 BGB remains unaffected in all other cases.

If the customer applies for the opening of insolvency proceedings, we shall be entitled,

prior to the ordering of security measures by the insolvency court, to withdraw from the

contract and demand the immediate return of the goods.
7.  Customer-specific fabrications/project fabrications (custom fabrications)
Customer-specific  fabrications  require  binding  information  on  design,  quantity  etc.

in written form at the time of ordering. For manufacturing reasons, we reserve the

right to supply up to 10% above or below the order quantity. Technical modifications

or  cancellations  are  subject  to  any  costs  incurred.  The  return  of  customer-specific

fabrications is impossible.
8. Delivery and packaging, transfer of risk
The delivery date is non-binding; although stated to the best of our knowledge. It is

subject to us receiving correct, defect-free and complete deliveries. The stated delivery

dates relate to completion in the factory, starting on the day the order is accepted by us.

Delivery is EXW (ex-works) in accordance with Incoterms 2010. Therefore, the costs

are borne by the customer. The risk is transferred to the customer when the goods are

passed to the person, company or facility nominated to execute the shipment. This

applies also for partial deliveries, or if we have assumed responsibility for delivery and

installation. The risk shall be transferred to the customer even in the case of delayed

acceptance.

In  the  absence  of  specific  shipping  instructions,  we  shall  proceed  as  we  deem  fit

and without any obligation to the cheapest or most expedient method. The customer

agrees that the order can also be delivered in parts, insofar as this is reasonable for the

customer. We shall charge a 5 EURO processing free for shipping to third parties that

we supply on behalf of the customer.

The packaging complies with the packaging ordinance. Disposable packaging shall be

charged at cost price. The packaging cannot be taken back.
9. Performance impediment and/or impossibility
If we are hindered in the fulfilment of our obligation due to the onset of unforeseeable

circumstances, which we are unable to avoid despite reasonable effort in relation to

the nature of the circumstances (e.g. operational interruption, delay in the delivery of

important raw materials, defects in the delivery), the delivery time shall be extended

by a reasonable period, insofar as the supply of goods or services is not rendered

unreasonably difficult or impossible.

If  we  have  to  accept  that  these  circumstances  are  not  only  temporary,  we  shall  be

entitled to withdraw from the contract either in whole or in part.

If  the  supply  of  goods  or  services  becomes  impossible,  the  customer  shall  not  be

obliged to furnish its own contractual service. Section 275 BGB applies mutatis

mutandis.  If,  however,  the  customer  is  solely  or  predominantly  responsible  for  the

circumstances that led to impossibility, it shall remain under an obligation to render

the return service. The same applies if this circumstance occurs at a time when the

customer is behind schedule with acceptance.
10. Samples/returns
Samples shall be provided only against payment. If samples or models are provided,

a credit note shall be issued with the subsequent order if the order value is 125 EURO

net or more. Goods can be returned only by agreement, although custom fabrications

are excluded from such return.

In the case of returns for which we are not responsible (e.g. incorrect order), we shall

charge a processing fee of 10%, the minimum value, however, being 7.50 EURO.
11. Retention of title
The goods shall remain our property unless full payment of all claims and/or until

the cheques provided for this purpose are honoured. The itemisation of claims in an

ongoing invoice, as well as balancing the account and the recognition thereof does

not affect the retention of title. The customer is entitled to sell on the retained goods

during the ordinary course of business. However, the customer is not permitted to

pledge the goods or transfer them by way of security. It shall assign its claim ensuing

from the selling on of the retained goods to us in advance. The customer shall be

entitled to collect the claim to the extent that it has fulfilled its obligations towards us.

At our request, the customer shall be obliged to state third-party debtors and we shall

be entitled to report this and the assignment.
12. Property rights
We reserve property rights and copyrights to all contractual documents such as

drafts, drawings, calculations and cost estimates. Such documents must not be

reproduced or disclosed to third parties without our consent. Any rights to patents,

utility models etc. reside solely with us, insofar as such patents have not yet been

filed. Our products are allowed to be replicated only with our written consent.

If objects are fabricated according to drawings or samples, the customer shall warrant

that any third party property rights are not infringed by manufacture or delivery. If

a third party forbids manufacture and delivery on account of property rights, we

shall be entitled to stop manufacture and delivery immediately. The customer shall

be obliged to reimburse us with all costs incurred and indemnify us from third party

compensation claims. Compensation claims by the customer are impossible.
13. Warranty
If the customer agrees with us a particular quality of the goods, we shall base this

agreement on our technical delivery specifications. If we have to deliver according to

customer drawings, specifications, samples etc., the customer shall assume the risk

for suitability for the intended purpose. If, after the contract is concluded, the scope

of goods or services is changed at the customer‘s request and this impairs the quality

or suitability of the goods, claims for defects on the part of the customer shall be ruled

out, insofar as such impairments are caused by the customer‘s requests for change.

The time at which the risk is transferred is decisive for the contractual state of the

goods. Wear and tear of wearing parts caused by ordinary use does not constitute a

defect. Claims for defects are ruled out in the following cases in particular: Unsuitable

or improper use, incorrect installation and/or commissioning by the customer or third

party, normal wear and tear, incorrect or negligent handling - in particular excessive

use -, unsuitable equipment, replacement materials, chemical, electrochemical or

electrical influences, unless such defects are caused by ourselves.

If  the  goods  contain  a  defects,  we  shall  provide,  following  a  reasonable  period  of

grace set by the customer, either a replacement or a repair as we deem fit. If such

subsequent performance fails, the customer shall be entitled to either reduce the

purchase price or withdraw from the contract. Any further warranty claims are ruled

out. In case of negligible deviations from the agreed quality, no claims for defects

shall be recognised.

The discovery of defects must be communicated to us immediately in writing. In the

case of recognisable defects, however, within 10 days of acceptance, in the case of

non-recognisable defects immediately after they become evident. The warranty is 12

months, starting with delivery of the goods ex-works.
14. Liability
With the exception of harm to life, body or health on account of a breach of duty by

ourselves, our liability shall be limited to intent or gross negligence.
15. Place of fulfilment, place or jurisdiction and governing law
The place of fulfilment for all obligations ensuing from this contractual relationship is

D-70734 Fellbach.

The place of jurisdiction for all legal disputes ensuing from the contractual relationship

is the court responsible for the headquarters of Andreas Maier GmbH & Co. KG.

All disputes ensuing from the contract or regarding the validity thereof shall be finally

decided by a court of arbitration in accordance with the Court of Arbitration Ordinance

of the German Committee for Arbitration Court Procedures or the Conciliation and

Arbitration  Arrangement  of  the  International  Chamber  of  Commerce,  recourse  to

ordinary courts of law being excluded. The legal dunning process, however, remains

permissible.

German law shall govern (BGB and HGB). The applicability of the UN  Convention on

Contracts for the International  Sale of Goods  (CISG) is ruled out.
16. Severability clause
If  individual  provisions  become  legally  invalid,  the  remaining  provisions  shall  not

be affected. The legally invalid provision shall be replaced by regulations that most

closely reflect the economic purpose of the contract with reasonable consideration

for the mutual interests. The publication of these Terms of Sale, Delivery and Payment

renders all previous versions invalid. This does not apply for any contracts concluded

prior to announcement.
