Why are you considering a new CNC machine?
July 12, 2017
It may be the most important question to ask in your business when you consider doing anything new. If you can’t answer,”Why are we doing this?” in a compelling way that supports a good business case for making the change, then you’re probably not making a good change.
You may follow that up with,”What are we trying to accomplish with this purchase?”
But first, start with the,”Why?”
Some whys make sense, while others don’t. Here’s some good reasons you may consider why you need a new CNC machine:
Customer requirements demand new production capabilities
You could have nearly an infinite number of reasons that make good business sense.
So, what CNC machine and brand will deliver you the results you want? Sometimes, it can be hard to tell from manufacturer websites whether their machine will accomplish what you want. And you don’t want to have to make dozens of phone calls to attempt to figure that out.
Techspex.com actually allows you to search 500 machine tool brands and nearly 8,600 machine models available. It’s a great place to create your first list of what CNC machines and brands you’ll consider to help you achieve your goals. You can compare all your choices side-by-side to make the short list and final selectio easier.
It should be easy to get what you want, even if you have a tight budget now. Some CNC manufacturers will give you affordable financing for several months so you can get your machine into production and get your capital flowing. Then, you pay a normal monthly amount after a fixed time period.
The perfect-fit CNC machine your company needs is out there, whether you’re a small job shop or large-scale production environment. Don’t compromise. It’s better to keep looking until you find exactly what fits your operations.
