Why Is In-House Tooling Fabrication Important in Custom Metal Services?

homeBlogWhy Is In-House Tooling Fabrication Important in Custom Metal Services?

In the realm of manufacturing, especially within the architectural metal industry, efficiency and cost-effectiveness are not just goals—they are imperatives. For specialty contractors like Johns Architectural Metal Solutions, our focus on crafting custom metal panels for construction projects demands a commitment to delivering the best solutions possible. A significant part of this commitment involves in-house tool fabrication, a practice that enhances our ability to prepare high-quality, custom metal solutions for our clients. Let’s explore why in-house tool fabrication is a cornerstone of our service excellence.

Shorter Turn-Around Time

One of the most compelling reasons for embracing in-house tooling fabrication is the ability to significantly reduce production times. When outsourcing tooling needs, manufacturers can encounter various delays—ranging from transit times to waitlists and potential communication errors. These delays can push back project timelines, affecting the overall delivery of the project.

At Johns Architectural Metal Solutions, we understand that time is of the essence. Our in-house tooling capabilities enable us to operate on our schedule, without the dependency on external suppliers for parts or materials. This autonomy allows us to produce and deliver our custom metal panels and products with a shorter turn-around time, helping our clients meet their project deadlines more efficiently.

Cut Down on Costs

Cost reduction is another vital benefit of in-house tooling fabrication. Outsourcing, particularly international outsourcing, can introduce additional expenses such as tariffs, shipping and handling costs. These expenses can accumulate, making the supposed cost-saving measure more expensive in the long run.

By performing tooling fabrication within our facility, we eliminate these hidden costs. This approach not only ensures cost efficiency but also prevents potential damage during extensive travel, further saving on expenses related to product quality control and replacements.

Ensure High-Quality Results

Quality assurance is paramount in the architectural metal industry. Our clients expect and deserve products that meet the highest standards of craftsmanship and durability. With in-house tooling fabrication, we have direct control over the entire production process. This control allows us to adjust materials, equipment and processes in real time, ensuring that every product reflects the quality our clients expect.

Outsourced tooling can sometimes result in communication breakdowns and discrepancies in quality standards. By keeping this critical aspect of production in-house, we guarantee that every product leaving our facility meets our rigorous quality standards, ensuring client satisfaction.

Accessible and Flexible

Flexibility and the ability to respond quickly to client needs are crucial in the custom metal services industry. In-house tooling fabrication provides us with the agility to make immediate adjustments to our products. Whether it’s a last-minute design change or an unexpected project requirement, our in-house capabilities allow us to adapt quickly without the delays or additional costs associated with outsourced tooling.

This level of accessibility and flexibility means that we can better serve our clients, providing them with tailored solutions that meet their specific needs and timelines.
