Best way to save an assembly as (1) file for layout purposes?

What is the best/most efficient way to save an assembly as a single file to be used in a layout.  Some of our machines are fairly large and we use 10-12 of them in a single layout.  Putting that many large assemblies in a single model bogs down the computer a great deal.  I tried saving the assembly as a part file, but it still seems to keep to much information.  I mainly need the "shell" or outline of the machine, minus all the parts inside or places you cant see.

Any suggestions?
