Why buy exhibition demo fiber laser cutting machine?
There are many laser machines or industry equipment show each month. Most well-positioned enterprises will take demo machine there. Some machines have been sold in advance. But some of them are not sold.
Many people may think demo machine is a used machine. They would like to buy a new one directly from factory. But if I was an end user, I would buy it definitely. Why? Here are the reasons:
Quality machine with enough aging test
All company hope to show their best machine on the exhibition. That can let visitors have the best impression on them. So usually demo machine has better quality compared with other same model sent from factory directly. For normal machine, manufacturer may do 10 items quality test. But for demo laser cutter, they may do more than 15 items test and each items may test twice. So its potential fault is much less than other machines.
Take fiber laser cutting machine for example, demo fiber laser cutting machine will run longer time on the spot. Usually exhibition will continue 3~4 days. And demo laser machine can run about 5~8 hours each day, totally about 20~30 hours during exhibition.
We know all fiber laser cutter need more than 8 hours aging test if the manufacturer is reliable and responsible. For aging test, actually the longer the better. 8 hours is the mini request running time before delivery. Even many companies do aging test less than 1 hour.
So demo fiber laser cutter have the longest running test and they can find more potential problems. Also engineers can find out the best cutting parameter.
You can get best price from exhibition
Firstly, about demo machine, all company hope to sell it out on the spot. As the cost is pretty high if they send it back to their factory. Some people choose to put machine in local stock, still will cost high storage.
In this case, most companies can accept lower price than normal. Of course, the discount should be reasonable. From our experience, you can try to ask max 10% discount.
Secondly, you will save shipping cost for demo machine. Because you just need to transport it from hall to your factory.
Thirdly, customs clearance also will be much easier. Some companies have do formal customs clearance, and you just need pay them tariff except machine cost. Also there are some companies just do temporary customs clearance. You need to offer some document to your customs office and pay tariff. But it is much easier than you import laser directly. Besides, you can save large destination seaport charge.
Above all, it is a smart decision to buy a demo machine from exhibition. We can get a machine with better quality and lower cost. Will you buy an exhibition demo machine?
