After the Klingons destroyed the industrial base of several dozen Cardassian planets in 2372, the Detapa Council secretly contacted the Federation Council and made an urgent request for industrial replicators. The Federation Council approved the request, and gave the Cardassians twelve Class 4 replicators so that the Cardassians could at least start building new power plants and factories.
Unfortunately, all twelve CFI replicators, which were transported to Deep Space 9 via a Vulcan freighter were hijacked by the Maquis, under the direction of former Starfleet Security officer Michael Eddington. (DS9: "For the Cause")
