About the presentation
Purchasing a machine tool is no small decision – it’s a decision that requires evaluation beyond the initial purchase price of the machine tool. At first glance, this assessment may seem like a daunting task, but Wade Anderson and the Okuma team took the guesswork out of this process by developing a Return on Investment (ROI) Calculator, which includes key criteria to consider by stores of all sizes. Using the calculation method, store owners and operators can calculate metrics such as total profit per job, part cycle time, cost per part, margin levels, and more. As a bonus, session attendees get access to a free ROI calculator, making it easy to choose the right investment for your store.
