All the benefits of buying your own laser machine

Why investing in a laser system is worth it.

WHEN IS IT WORTH INVESTING IN YOUR OWN PRODUCTION PROCESS INSTEAD OF CONTRACT PRODUCTION?

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.

WHAT IS CONTRACT PRODUCTION?

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.

THE (ALLEGED) BENEFITS OF CONTRACT PRODUCTION

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.

IS IT WORTH INVESTING IN BUYING YOUR OWN LASER MACHINE?

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! With us, you can buy a high-quality laser machine, which will win you over with its faster throughput rates and which guarantees higher productivity, and which has a relatively low investment risk compared to the competition.

In contrast to expensive contract production, investing in your own laser machine will yield a profit after just a few years. We’ll be happy to calculate your return on investment (ROI) for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us.

You can enjoy numerous benefits when you buy your own laser machine:

  • High flexibility: you can respond flexibly to orders, implement them quickly and efficiently in your own company, and aren’t dependent on the free capacities of a third-party company.
  • More creativity: as you can implement the production process in your own company, you can be more creative and free in the way you approach implementing projects and orders.
  • Great versatility: many alternative technologies – sandblast engraving, for example – are less versatile and much more material-bound than laser cutting or engraving. You can not only use the flexible laser machines from JustLaser to process a wide range of different materials, surfaces and tools, they can also adapt perfectly to different shapes and patterns.

 

LASER CUTTERS

WHAT BENEFITS DOES A LASER MACHINE OFFER IN COMPARISON TO CONVENTIONAL DEVICES?

Laser marking and laser cutting with JustLaser laser machines is a particularly precise and gentle way to process a wide variety of materials. Furnish a variety of hard and soft materials such as metal, wood, paper, plastics and textiles with contrasting, forgery-proof and permanent markings, or manufacture blanks in a contact-free and particularly gentle way. Anyone who invests in a JustLaser laser machine will enjoy significant benefits in comparison to CNC contract production and other methods:

  • Low production costs: high material utilisation and cutting speeds as well as short processing times make laser technology an extremely economical production process – even for individual parts. This means that costs can be kept very low.
  • Maximum precision: it doesn’t matter whether it’s laser cutting or marking – unlike contract production milling, for example, the process with JustLaser laser machines is distinguished by maximum precision. Small and complex inscriptions on difficult-to-reach places can be made using modern JustLaser laser machines just as easily as fine cuts or unusual shapes with narrow and clean cut edges.
  • No maintenance costs, no tool wear: as using a laser is a contactless process, it isn’t just gentle on all materials – it also leads to absolutely no tool wear and results only in low maintenance costs.
  • No tool changeover: it doesn’t matter what material you want to process with your laser machine – there is no need to change tools. As a result, you don’t need to worry about time-consuming retooling, and can benefit instead from increased production efficiency.
  • Easy integration: intelligent software solutions facilitate programmable and automatic processing. Lasers can also be integrated into existing production lines. Configuration options and automation functions ensure numerous application possibilities and optimal system utilisation.
  • Easy to use: JustLaser laser machines are controlled digitally, while our laser software automatically selects the ideal parameters for the desired process. This not only simplifies the work process; it also always leads to optimal results.
