Free Affordability Calculator Breaks Down Costs of Owning, Running CNC Machines

Yeti Tool has launched an affordability calculator tool that customers can use for free to help them break down the exact cost of owning and running a CNC machine in 2024.

There are additional costs to consider when purchasing and operating a CNC machine such as extraction bags and cutters, as Yeti Tool co-founder and Director Andy McLaren commented:

"Our free costing tool factors in extraction bags and cutters, so that SmartBench customers get an accurate idea of the running costs."

"We include all elements such as cutter lifespan and extraction bag life."

Customers using the new costing table can change the model to suit their needs, so each of our SmartBench products can be costed precisely.

The table also allows customers to include items such as how many hours they wish to use their CNC machine, and for how many days per week.

"Our affordability calculator tool will enable customers to work out all the costs involved in owning and running a CNC machine, as well as giving them real-time information on when they can expect to see a return on their investment," added Andy.

"This free tool can be used by part-time hobbyists or full-time CNC manufacturers to establish the costs and profits to be delivered by their SmartBench over the months ahead," he concluded.
