ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL, December 21, 2020
People throw out a lot of words when marketing these days. It’s hard to sift through fact or fiction. When a manufacturer states they offer world class design of their machine tools, what exactly should you be looking for in that company?
World class design is more than just taking a large, complex design and manufacturing it to exact standards. World class design is a culture within the organization, focused on the customer and helping them navigate the best design of their parts to save them time and money.
What Does World Class Design Mean?
Several factors stand out in companies that truly offer world class design in CNC machine tool manufacturing.
- The company invests in R&D
Machine tool technology is rapidly evolving. Being able to make machining easier through improved automation should be a core focus. Having a continual dedication to R&D means the company is always looking for a better way to improve.
