As anyone in a highly technical field understands, you often can’t just waltz into a shop and buy a piece of advanced machinery like you would with regular office equipment. In some cases, you can buy the parts, tools, or software you need right off the shelf. However, specialized supplies require a bit more energy, effort, and engineering to produce. Of course, having the exact instruments you need to maintain and improve your daily operations is well worth the investment. At Eagle Engineering, we’re proud to provide a wide range of support services for manufacturers, including custom equipment and machines. We understand and exceed our clients’ distinctive demands. In the following blog, we’ll explain what to do if you can’t find the machine you need on the shelf.
Why Off-the-Shelf Might Not Work For You
Are you getting frustrated trying to fit your manufacturing plans into the restrictions of predefined off-the-shelf products? If you haven’t previously experienced the advantages of customized machinery, you might be selling your business short, limiting your capabilities with prefabricated “solutions.” There are a number of reasons why off-the-shelf might not work for your needs. Ready-made equipment:
- Is often difficult to use from a software standpoint. In an attempt to satisfy all potential clients and industries, these machines actually help none. Eagle Engineering can design a system with an intuitive interface and the capability to handle every project you tackle.
- Often requires modification or adjustment to work at all. If you’re constantly spending time, money, and effort to tweak off-the-shelf tools for your purposes, don’t you think it would make more sense to just go custom? Eagle Engineering offers turnkey machinery for manufacturers.
- May not exist for your particular niche. If you can’t find the machinery you need to produce your merchandise, you might actually take this as a positive sign. You need equipment like no other to create extraordinary, high-quality products.
- Could be more affordable. Most manufacturers assume that customized machinery must come at a higher cost. However, if you consider what you’re spending to fiddle with your off-the-shelf equipment and how much productivity you’re losing over non-optimal systems, custom machinery might actually be less expensive (and more effective) on the whole.
