One of the most challenging aspects of being a startup or smaller OEM is the difficulty in finding the right contract manufacturers. Many of these types of OEMs find that the big contract machining services only work on large volume orders and they may not provide prototyping services.
It is essential for small to mid-sized OEMs as well as startup companies of any size to understand that quality contract machining services are available. One simple way to find experienced companies is to search for machining services specializing in your specific industry. Many of the US-based companies focus in providing parts and components of the oil and gas, aerospace, energy and medical device fields, all which require precision machining, prototyping and the ability to work with a variety of materials.
The Experience Advantage
One of the big advantages for any OEM in working with an experienced contract manufacturing company is the wealth of expertise and industry knowledge the company brings to the table.
With experience comes in-house quality control measures that ensure precision parts and components with every order. The familiarity with industry standards, particularly in medical components, oil and gas, aerospace and energy sector production, means the OEM can rest assured that the parts conform to all requirements.
The best contract machining services work to provide the customer with a quality part at the lowest possible price. With the latest in equipment and technology, they can provide increased production levels, helping to reduce the cost per unit for production.
In addition, with the various value-added services provided by top machining companies, the logistics and supply chain costs of production can be reduced. By using one service for machining, wire EDM, prototyping, welding, engraving and assembly, the OEM can save money while having full assurance of quality control to meet customer and industry standards.
