What to Look for in a Quality Machine Shop

June 10, 2020

When it comes to top-tier metal fabrication, fabricators should be able to assess your project needs and come up with an approach to ensure quality results. Various processes are used in the fabrication process, each process works in conjunction to build your custom project seamlessly. 


While there are a myriad of machine shops available who offer custom work, finding high-quality custom metal fabrication can be difficult to come by. But making certain that your project is in good hands is essential for its success. 


Thankfully, there are a number of factors to consider before choosing one machine shops’ services for your next custom project. In today’s blog we discuss a few factors to consider when looking for a reputable machine shop for the job.


Machine Shop Equipment Capabilities

When searching for a machine shop for your custom metal fabrication shop, it is essential to consult with shop fabricators on whether or not they are capable of meeting your project needs. Depending on the complexity and scale of your project, certain fabricators may not have the skills of equipment capable of yielding the results you’re in need of. It’s better to ask to see if your project is feasible for the machine shop in question to accommodate - if not, take your search elsewhere. 


Reliability and Turnaround Times 

Does the machine shop you’re looking into have a solid reputation for adhering to deadlines and maintaining efficient turnaround times? If your custom project is time-sensitive, it is best that you do your research by reading up on reviews when it comes to meeting deadlines. The last thing you want is for project delays to occur which can potentially impact other related timelines. 


Customer Service and Satisfaction

While you conduct research on whether or not a machine shop is reliable in terms of meeting deadlines, you should also check to see if there’s a trend for positive (or negative) customer service experiences. Having to work with fabricators who lack customer service skills can end up giving you more stress than you need. Get a general consensus for most client experiences with the machine shop by searching through multiple consumer platforms for reviews.
