Laser cutting and engraving machines are highly useful pieces of equipment in industries that require regular manufacturing and design processes to take place. It can be cost-effective to own a laser machine, depending on your requirements and how frequently you will be using the machine. Here are some things to consider if you are weighing up whether or not to invest in a laser cutting machine:
• Cost. Total up the amount of money you spend outsourcing design work. The laser machine will cost money initially of course but it could save money in the long run.
• Convenience. Will the convenience make any extra costs worthwhile? It could save your staff lots of extra time.
• Space. Laser engraving and cutting machines can require a lot of space. Think realistically about where you could position one and then look at the machines that are available. Some require a lot less space than others.
