When making a major buying decision it’s important to consider factors beyond the initial price tag. After all, our goal is to get the greatest overall value. When buying capital equipment, that means getting the right machine for the job and the best return on our investment.

Asking these and other pertinent questions can help you determine the true cost of CNC machine ownership. Every case is unique, of course, and only you can decide which machine tool offers the best overall value. The wrong choice can lead to extraordinary repairs, downtime and training costs. Not to mention greater operator costs, scrap, rework, shorter machine life and missed opportunities.
