Do you rely on contract production for cutting and engraving components and parts? It provides companies with the opportunity to outsource specific production processes to external service providers when they cannot carry them out in-house. But is this expensive route always the best solution? Although many of the benefits for contracting the production process seem tempting at first glance, buying an efficient JustLaser laser machine pays for itself over an extended period.
Contract production refers to the outsourcing of specific work processes to third parties providing, for example, laser cutting or engraving, CNC milling and water jet cutting as services for the production of components and parts.
The reasons a company might decide to go for expensive contract production are extremely diverse. Outsourcing is often the result of bottlenecks, the exhaustion of production capacities, the lack of certain machines and production processes, and even gaps in the technical knowledge of skilled personnel.
It doesn’t matter whether the contract production is for laser work, CNC wood processing or other technical processes – at first glance, outsourcing seems to offer a lot of benefits. That’s why companies often fall back on the services of third party companies in their production processes – because, for example, it eliminates the need to buy expensive machines, does not involve overheads or maintenance costs, keeps wage bills low, offsets a lack of expert knowledge or skilled personnel, or allows for capacities to be fully utilised.
The extent to which these factors have an effect on the production process depends greatly on the process chosen and should not be generalised. Contract production also involves some disadvantages such as restricted flexibility, dependence on suppliers, greater lead times and delayed order processing.
One of the main arguments for contract production is that it eliminates the cost of purchasing machines, which are often expensive. But that’s not the case at JustLaser!
