After many years of selling CNC Cutting Solutions into the marketplace and mainly promoting the MicroStep brand, we came to the realization that we also need to start supplying entry level CNC Cutting Solutions to fulfil the needs of our customers.

The reason why we decided on entry level Cnc cutting equipment is to support different customer needs. (i.e. companies entering the cutting market for the first time, budget constraints and newbies unfamiliar with market positioning or processes, as well as hobbyists)

This is a huge market which would be put off by a very expensive cutting machine. We wanted to make sure that everyone is covered and included. Our motto that we do not just sell machines, remains, and our top priority here as FactorySmart is to guide potential business owners or first-time business owners that are a bit in the dark, to help them make an educated decision.

We as FactorySmart want to help our customers grow and reach their potential and also help them to plan to exceed that potential by growing their businesses. Whether you are a hobbyist who is passionate about cnc cutting machines or someone looking to cut steel for their own engineering shop, we have a solution for you.

Once companies have purchased an entry level machine and have realized the potential for growth, when cutting for themselves, they venture into cutting for other engineering shops. This is when they require a machine with higher consistency and tolerance and the ability to add various processing options to one machine (micro punch marking, plasma edge marking, inkjet marking, pipe cutting, tapping and drilling, bevel cutting and milling) This is where an investment is made for a high end, high-definition plasma cutting machine.

We love seeing companies grow and once they have a full machine shop, we incorporate other machinery, as well as specific software to offer a complete wholistic package, that gives the business owner, the ultimate control over their production.

….But we are getting ahead of ourselves. Here is why we have partnered with the various suppliers to offer everyone out there an opportunity to reach their full potential.
