|How can I get a quote?
Every page on our web site has a file upload link towards the bottom where you are encouraged to send CAD models of your parts to our engineering department for a free customized quote. If you don’t have any files to upload and are looking for a general quote, you can contact our sales department (800-535-0135) and discuss your needs with one of our technical sales people.
|How long does it take to get a quote?
Once we receive your CAD models, a project manager will contact you to discuss your time requirements in receiving a quote. Because we are essentially designing complete fixtures, it does take a day or two to complete the quoting process. We have expedited quotes on occasion when customers are in an absolute panic – just let our project manager know your timeframe. If you don’t have models to send, we can often give you budgetary estimates over the phone based on your requirements.
|How do I know what components I need?
During the (free) fixture design process, our engineers will invite you to join in on a GoTo Meeting over the internet where you’ll get to see your fixturing solution in full 3-D solid models. This is the time our engineers can discuss with you the base table size options, tooling component selection and even discuss part loading, weld sequence, clamping recommendations, etc.
|Do you have any starter kits?
Yes. We have a huge variety of tooling kits from general, everyday use kits to packages designed for small business startups to kits specially geared for motorcycle builders. Our technical sales department can discuss your specific application to help point you in the right direction when it comes to picking out a kit.
|Are engineered quotes more expensive than pre-configured kits?
No. A quote based on fixture designs created by one of our Application Engineers is just tailored more specifically to the types of parts you are most frequently welding. An engineered package may contain more or less components than one of the pre-configured kits we offer. Regardless of how you select your package, our Lifetime Exchange program guarantees you will always have the tooling you need to get the job done.
