Hello Experts,

I am having trouble describing the distinction between a machine component and 
partly completed machinery, particularly when the machine component is a 
collection of parts at least one of which moves.

As an example, consider a printing press sold to EU which is large and has 
three major sub-systems, a media pre-treatment module (to prepare the media to 
accept the ink better), the printing press proper, and a media speed drying 
module. None of the sub-systems can, nor is intended to, function separately, 
and there a bunch of miscellaneous parts that are shipped to assembly the units 
together. The main controller is part of the printing press proper.

So, in planning to ship this product to the EU it is not clear to me if I have 
one machine with three major components shipped in 4 crates that goes through 
final manufacturing on site at the user location, or (somehow) three partly 
completed machines and a box of miscellaneous parts. I am leaning towards the 
former, but I cannot find much discussion of finer strategic points such as how 
to mark the crates etc.. to ensure smooth Customs clearance.

Are any of you aware of any guidance on such large equipment that is shipped in 
multiple pieces? Of course any advice from the listserv would also be welcome.

Best Regards,
