To upgrade to new tube filling machinery or not?
That is the question that a lot of product manufacturers face on a regular basis. None more so than when it comes to either repairing, reconditioning or completely replacing worn-out tube filling machines using used tube fillers spares.
Sometimes a company can become blind in the endless pursuit of delivering the high standards of product quality and performance needed to survive in a competitive business world.
Instead, many production businesses can meet their needs and save money by looking inward at what they need to meet their purpose rather than feel compelled to keep up with what is new out there.
There is nothing wrong with choosing to use used tube fillers on your production line rather than believing you need to swap out new for old when your tube fillers break down or have been in action for a long period of time.
Your tube filling machines are an integral part of your production process, but that doesn’t mean you need to completely replace the whole tube filling machine when it becomes worn.
Looking for a new tube filling machine can be expensive and you will need to find one that meets a good balance between a performance that meets your needs and not wasting money on features that you don’t need.
All production machinery comes without a guaranteed infinite lifespan. An average mid-priced tube filling machine will have an eventual expiry date. But this will differ greatly from machine to machine depending on use, care and how well it is maintained.
All of these things contribute greatly to the lifespan of your tube filling machines. With this in mind, you can still cut costs and extend the life of your equipment without the need to upgrade every few years.
One way to avoid overspending is to have your malfunctioning tube fillers stripped back to the bare bones and rebuilding back to a high level of functionality and performance.
Or if you are desperately in need of replacement tube fillers, then looking instead to buy used tube fillers and used tube fillers spares, and having them completely refurbished so they look and perform like new.
You don’t have to worry about having to justify the costs of a brand-new tube filling machine and making a dent in the company bottom line because of it.
Instead, you can get many years of high-quality production at a fraction of the cost by investing in either used tube fillers or looking to have your existing tube fillers completely overhauled and refurbished.
As ever, the best way to save money on your manufacturing equipment is to do your research. Don’t just look at the price of new tube filling machines, look for a solution that will fit your actual needs and is something that will work best to give you what you want to achieve.
In most cases, this will be via sourcing used tube fillers to replace your old ones that are beyond repair and having them refurbished, converted and upgraded to deliver exactly what you need.
