4 Things Custom Machined Parts Can Do That Factory Made Parts Can’t

Custom machining parts might seem like a luxury that doesn’t have a lot of pay off. This couldn’t be further from the truth.

Having custom parts will allow you to do jobs that either you couldn’t do or do well with factory made parts.

Other times your machines might need custom parts to keep them up and running correctly. We’ve made a list of things that custom parts can help with. Let’s learn more!

1. Handle Special Jobs

Some jobs will require special tools or parts to complete. In the past, you may have had to turn down some of these because you didn’t have the right equipment. Not anymore.

If you can custom make parts, then you can adapt the equipment that you do have. With the made-to-order parts, every task will seem to be much easier. This improves workforce productivity and allows you to grow your bottom line along the way.

2. Replace Old or Discontinued Parts

After you have machines for some time, they can become outdated or obsolete. That makes it hard to replace the parts as they wair out.  If an older machine that you use regularly goes out, you’ll lose money either in the downtime or by having to buy a new machine.

This is where custom made parts come in. You can easily have the part made to fit your machine regardless of how old it is. People who make these part can reverse engineer just about anything. You’ll just bring in the old part, and a new one can be made. This can cut down your wait time and get you back up and running quicker.

3. Give You a Hand with Tricky Material

Some materials are harder to work with than others, especially if you don’t have the right parts. Examples include plastics, bronze, and steel equipment.

You can’t use your regular equipment and processes with them. Because of this you might have had to limit the materials that you’ve worked with in the past.

4. Streamline Production

When you have custom equipment, you can cut down on time it takes you to do a job. Since the equipment that you are using is specially made for the job you are doing, you can get to it faster and better.

If you can make your own custom parts, then you never have to deal with suppliers. That also means you can make adjustments as you go without having to wait for someone else to send you more parts.

Regular Factory Made Parts Don’t Do All of That

When all of your employees are working at their full capacity, you’ll save a lot of money. For most companies, paying employees accounts for about 90% of total operating costs. When they work more, you make more.

Factory-made parts are limited in what they can do, while custom-made parts offer more versatility.
