AccuBurn-Laser-Cutting-PrecisionSome manufacturers consider taking their laser and plasma cutting in-house with the idea of saving money and keeping tighter control over the process and production. This could be due to a souring relationship with a vendor or just because they feel it gives them a competitive edge.

There is no doubt, some heavy equipment manufacturers have figured this out and are successful handling this in-house after years of perfecting the art of precision and efficiency.

On the other hand, outsourcing metal cutting (and forming) is an advantage for many, especially if there is a reliable, cost-effective and customer service-driven provider for these services. There are many pros to leaving laser and plasma cutting to the experienced professionals and here are just a few:

  • The initial cost for acquiring appropriate equipment
  • The risk of not knowing exactly what equipment is appropriate or necessary from a cost and performance standpoint
  • Once purchased, ensuring that the maintenance and service team is in place to avoid down-time
  • Evaluating then hiring, and maybe even training employees to run the machinery, and deliver precision parts on a tight schedule
  • And, of course, workshop space


These are just a few of the reasons that outsourcing may make the most sense for your part needs.
