The digitization of your company is now or never

Not so long ago we were asking ourselves whether the industry was mature enough to deal with digitization processes. It wasn’t long before the market gave us its response, just like in many other areas, those that were ready were few, the majority found themselves in the middle ground waiting for others to get going to see whether the digitization process is as interesting as suggested or whether it failed to meet expectations, and then there was a third group of "deniers", a term that has become popular over the last few weeks and which includes those that systematically tend to apply the same phase for almost everything: "this isn’t for me".

The sheet metal world is not immune to the difficulty of estimating the right price for the product. There is an infinite number of processes that add value to a product: material used, scrap generated, cutting time, consumables used, labor associated with production, miscellaneous indirect costs, etc.
