Making the decision to invest in new equipment can be difficult. There are many aspects to consider, including measuring the costs and benefits of adopting new technology. If the goal of the machine is simply increasing the speed and throughput of an existing process, this process can be straightforward. But if the technology will impact the capabilities, processes or workflow of an operation, the decision becomes complicated.

With IMTS 2018 approaching, this issue is likely on the minds of many. A webinar titled “Weighing Your Future: Evaluating Cost, Profit and Financing when Adopting Transformative Technologies,” presented by Index Traub, can help guide companies through the process. Index Traub’s president and CEO Tom Clark and Equipment Finance Group president and CEO Chris Lyle will cover the methodology to evaluate technologies that significantly alter an operation, give insights into questions to ask exhibitors at trade shows when considering new technologies and offer a comparison of financing options for investing in such technology. 

The webinar will take place August 23, 2018, at 2 p.m. E.T.  Attendees can visit short.productionmachining.com/Index823 to learn more or register.
