Guilty of “Square Wheels” in your business??

We’ve all had those moments where there’s a lot of work to do, we’ve got a method of doing it which takes time, but we persevere “because it works”, despite there being an easier, faster or more efficient solution just within reach.

Here at Selmach we refer to that as the “Square Wheels” problem. So often we hear from our customers the same two phrases: “I’m too busy to think about getting that new machine, maybe later once I’ve got less work on”

Then, when they have bought that new piece of machinery and got it in the workshop up and running; “I should have bought this years ago, it would have saved me so much time, energy and money!”

Here are a few scenarios our customers regularly encounter, and the solutions that we’ve suggested for them:

Cutting down tube, box and flat with an angle grinder

Using a handheld plasma for repetitive cutting tasks or outsourcing profiling altogether

Using a tape measure instead of a measuring system

Using a manual machine to cut, roll or bend 1000s of repeat parts

Using a mag-drill or pillar drill for punching out holes

Notching tubes with an angle grinder/drill

Using a sledgehammer to flatten out a warped plate

Thinking you can’t justify the cost of a new piece of machinery

If you’re worried about financing new machinery, fear not, we can guide you on purchasing via finance, spreading the cost over several years at a competitive rate.
