Know the TCO to avoid mistaken purchases

The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is the real cost of owning and using a piece of equipment such as a computer or a production line during its cycle of activity, from the time of purchase to its disposal and includes all aspects related to ownership (hardware, software, maintenance, training, and technical support) in operation and not just the simple purchase.

Calculating the TCO of a product before its purchase is therefore essential not to make the mistake of considering only the amount indicated in the offer to evaluate two or more quotes, because this leads to choose the product that only appears to be the less expensive but which will actually bring a high and unplanned emerging costs.

How do you calculate a correct TCO?
A very common mistake is to consider only the costs of purchase and installation in the evaluation of a product. Especially in the different end-of-line systems, there are many factors to consider and vary from technology to technology, for example the parameters to be evaluated for marking systems are not the same as those of a metal detector, an X-ray system or a checkweigher.

To calculate TCO correctly, there are many factors that need to be considered: energy consumption, the actual performance of the machine with respect to the consumable, the ability of the system to support production increases compared to those initially estimated, the cost of extraordinary maintenance or periodic calibrations are just some of the data to be analyzed.

To clarify this important topic, Nimax has reserved a space in its booth at Cibustec exhibition in Parma where we are waiting to answer all your questions.

While waiting to meet you, we recommend that you read this short white paper introductory LOW TCO, HIGH PERFORMANCE
