4. Supply chain still an issue
As much as we all wish it wasn’t, supply chain issues that began a few years ago are still with us today. Raw materials and parts still take longer to get and are harder to find. In our welding booth, we saw it first-hand.
“I met several people who had to change their part designs due to the fact they couldn’t get the components they needed to build it the old way,” said Sales Engineer, Charlie Anthony. In cases like this, Bluco’s modular solutions can help in several ways.
First, the versatility of modular solutions allow for design changes that you may not have predicted. If you can’t get the tubing you used to use for your part, chances are you can adapt your existing fixture to hold the alternative stock.
Second, our team of application engineers can help you eliminate kinks in the supply chain in several ways. They can reconfigure an existing solution, or help you plan ahead by adding features and components that boost the versatility of a new solution to accommodate foreseeable changes. They can also help you identify operations that could be brought in house, and design the modular solutions that make it possible.
