Spanish term or phrase: a maquina cerrada
Si la inspección y diagnóstico fue para presupuestar una reparación a máquina cerrada, esto se deve especificar en la propuesta, indicando que la propuesta es preliminar y que una vez desensamblado el sistema ó conjunto a reparar, se determinará el precio final por ese trabajo.

not sure of the correct technical term here ....fully enclosed machines perhaps? anyone know for sure? Thanks!

installed/mounted equipment

In other words, part of a functional system.

Equipment can be assembled, but not installed. An automotive engine is assembled then installed into the engine compartment, bolted to its mounts, connected to the transmission, hose, fuel lines and wiring are attached, etc.
