Through years of experience in the industry, Ludwig Oellermann, MD of MicroStep SA states that selling cheap machines to valued customers in actual fact cheats them from being able to produce high quality products on a consistent basis, which in turn then cheats the end user.
Therefore buying cheap will lead to an inferior quality product over time, dissatisfied customers, many more breakdowns leading to unexpected downtime and loss in production and ability to bill the customer. An erratic supply to the end user leads to a bad name and the unlikelihood of repeat business.
What also tends to happen when you buy from cheap CNC Plasma Cutting suppliers is that your service and support tends to be limited during the warranty period and then tends to fall away completely after the warranty period has ended. Initial cost saving when buying a cheap machine will in time lead to much more frustration and income loss which then does not become quantifiable as to why you as a company are rather saving money on your purchase.
Yes you will have monthly repayments on your more expensive CNC Plasma Cutting machine but these will be planned and expected and calculated, which means no impact on bottom line profits.
Our overall advice is do not buy on price only and rather determine your long term goal.
