Would Your Shop Benefit from a Multitasking Machine?

SIZE DOESN’T MATTER
Investing in a multitasking machine is costly, which can be a challenge for smaller shops looking to make a purchase within budget. However, small shops often produce a large number of varied parts and therefore need more functionality and flexibility on their floor. For that reason, smaller shops are driving a lot of multitasking sales today. While part of that may be from the price point going down, a much larger part is that small shops have realized the huge efficiency boost that multitasking can bring to the table. Faster setups, reduced fixturing costs, improved part accuracy, and shortened lead times are all advantages of multitasking machines.
Overall, multitasking machines are a huge benefit to your shop if you’re looking for an efficient and accurate way to produce high mix, low to mid-volume parts as well as specialty and customized parts.
