Calculating the Total Cost of Ownership

When budgeting for a Plek machine, it is important that you should be aware of the total cost of ownership. This is quite easy to calculate from a current Plek price list.

  • COST OF MACHINE PLUS SETUP, TRAINING AND TRANSPORT COSTS
    Take the basic price of the Plek machine and factor in setup, training and transportation costs. Normally we will include these in any quote for a machine that we send you.

  • ADD-ON COSTS
    Software add-ons can be purchased outright, or on a pay-per-use basis. If you require additional hardware, such as an on-instrument STS, you should include these costs in your calculations.

  • SERVICE COSTS
    We recommend that you opt for a service plan to keep service costs to a minimum. If you opt for service-on-demand, software updates and support, for example, become significantly more expensive.

  • FRETCUTTER RESHARPENING
    The frequency of fretcutter resharpening depends on the number of instruments you process plus several other factors. A useful as-sumption for a repair shop is to budget for one to two resharpenings per year.

  • MAINTENANCE COSTS
    The Plek comes with a standard 2-year warranty. We recommend that maintenance take place 2 years after that, and thereafter at 4-yearly intervals. You should budget for the maintenance procedure plus travel and accommodation costs for your nearest technician.
