Custom Machines- Standard Parts
When we get a chance to design and build custom machines, like our custom machine coolant filter units, we like to use standard parts. We believe in designing and building custom machines like ones that we would want to own. We use Standard parts for our Custom machines because Standard parts are easy to access and find if they ever need to be replaced. I have been in the industry long enough to know that there is far more money is using all custom parts. We have also been on the other end, where we are the customer with a custom machine that was built with custom parts, and know what it is like when one of those small parts needs to be replaced. Finding a custom part that is needed to fix the machine is not easy, and comes with a pretty hefty price tag. We believe in running our business in a way that will make things easier for the customer. We have been a customer ourselves, and know how it feels to spend time running down a small custom part, and having to pay a pretty high price to get it. Using custom parts does ensure the customer will have to come back to you if the custom machine ever needs parts replaced, but we would rather have our customers come back because they like our work and service.
Machines are supposed to run long and hard with minimum maintenance. If something fails it should be easy to replace with a standard, easy to access part. This is the most ideal situation for the consumer. Building custom machines with planned obsolescence and fancy parts just for the sole purpose of being able to inflate the price is not the way we want to run our business. We build custom machine filter units that may not look incredibly fancy, but they work well, last long, and are built with parts that are easy to find and easy to replace if ever needed. We believe in the golden rule- “Build the kind of machine you would like to own”, and that is exactly what we do.
