4 Questions to Ask Your Vendor Before Committing

A few questions to ask your vendor before making a commitment for your production runs:

-Does a high-quality machine producer with a solid history of reliability build the equipment installed at the vendor?

-Does the manufacturer provide local support to your vendor in case equipment needs repair during production of your parts?

-Is the laser equipment capable of handling the parts you need i.e. — a decent wattage and size? For example, prior to the invention of the fiber laser, the lower the wattage the lower the cost to operate the laser. That has changed drastically; fiber optics is three times faster than a conventional laser.

-Does the company have a long history of producing high quality parts?

If you responded with a “yes” to all the questions, then it is time to take the next step—give them a call to discuss your project. Not sure who to contact? Consider Tampa Sheet Metal in Tampa, Florida.

Tampa Sheet Metal Specifies in Fiber Laser with Steel Metal Parts

Specifying fiber laser steel metal parts compared to other options reduces cost and meets higher quality standards. For companies outsourcing sheet metal parts for electrical, building, packaging, medical, oil, gas, marine, power generation, packaging, and other applications, should consider specifying steel fiber laser parts.

 

Why? Fiber laser steel cut parts are produced extremely fast, at precise measurements, allowing for more per parts per sheet. All three of these factors reduces the overall cost per part. In addition, the parts will be of higher quality compared to other options.

Other benefits of laser cut steel parts:

-Thick and/or thin materials can be efficiently processed
-Can produce parts that have curves
-Laser parts do not leave tool marks or scratches
-Setup time and programming are reduced
-No tool development time or tool inventory is needed
-Surfaces and edges are smoother

 

However, as everyone knows not all fiber lasers are created equal in terms of performance, quality, and reliability. This is why it is essential to investigate your vendor’s equipment before making a commitment for your parts.
