Bus/Financial
French term or phrase: appareil de vente
From terms and conditions of sale:

"Nos matériels et fournitures considérés comme spéciaux, ainsi que les appareils de vente peu courante non prévus à notre catalogue, ne peuvent être repris ou échangés."

Eurodic gives this as "vending machines" but I think this might be too specific. Is it a general term? All I know about the company in question is that they are in the l'emboutissage de précision - deep-drawing - sector, something to do with metal-forming and not mentioned at all in my document, which is commercial/legal.
Thanks for any help.

Thanks a lot for setting me on the right track! Bit confusing as I don't even know who the company is or what they sell really...
