The net machine is an elemental indicator for the attractiveness of an offer. Yet it is important to pay close attention to cost drivers which are just as important as the net machine price to evaluate and compare the investment costs related to machines of different manufacturers.
These additional cost drivers are often hidden or badly presented in quotations, but should be known and considered to make a sound decision.
Essential cost aspects are:
Net machine price
Scope of delivery for given net machine price
Installation and runup costs
Costs for machine foundation
Costs for all requested equipment
Costs of adapting and linking the equipment to the machine
Packaging and transport costs
Costs for CAD/CAM software
Costs for training of the relevant employees
Additional costs such as travel, loading and board expenses for service team for installation and runup of the machine
