Choosing the right equipment There are benefits and disadvantages to each kind of finishing procedure, and it’s ultimately up to the individual shop owners and project managers to determine the right fit for each unique project. But if a company reaches the point where adding a piece of equipment to aid with finishing procedures makes sense, there are still a few important issues to consider. Pham says that he encourages his customers to make a list of questions before purchasing any equipment. “How easy is the machine to use, and what labor is involved in using the machine? What technical support and training will I receive when I take delivery?
