When a project requires complex machined parts from an outside supplier, predictable and repeatable results are essential. When tolerances and deadlines are tight, there's no wiggle room for error.
Sadly, mishaps can and do occur but when they happen too often something has to give. A great supplier has the capacity and capability to absorb these mishaps. But finding them can be tricky and getting it wrong can be expensive. It pays to choose wisely!
Searching the internet for great precision engineering suppliers is like wading through a pile of very similar CVs. If every engineering website you look at is saying the same things - ISO approval, years of experience, 5 axis machines - how can you choose who is the best fit for the job?
This blog post outlines nine things to look for that make filtering the engineering wheat from the chaff straightforward. And... look out for the tenth, which really could be the clincher!
