With the advent of new Fiberlaser Technology bracing our shores around 4 years ago, we have learnt a lot through continuous experiences, the good and the ugly. It is with this in mind that we are endeavouring to point out a few key aspects of what to look at when acquiring a Fiberlaser Cutting Machine.
Fiberlaser Technology is a relatively new technology and has hit the South African market, as well as global market by storm. Pricing on these machines is very competitive, as it is far easier to manufacture machines to integrate this technology. Having said this, there are a myriad of suppliers form the East, Europe and the Americas. We are bombarded daily with emails and offers from unknown suppliers from all over the world. This can cause much frustration and confusion as to making the correct decision on which fiberlaser machine supplier or manufacturer/agent to choose from. The entire process becomes very overwhelming. There are established household brands in our market, which can be trusted and compared to either a Mercedes Benz or Toyota. The challenging fact being that these household brands are generally more expensive. Many of these emails that we do receive from the less known brands, which obviously will be much cheaper. The pitfall here, however is that price is not the only decision making factor, in the acquiring of the fiberlaser cutting system.
