Extend your delivery time

Order your part a little earlier, with a longer delivery time the costs will be significantly reduced. If we have more time to make efficient planning, our production costs will decrease. And that is reflected in the final price.

Choice of material

Choose a cheaper material. MDF and cardboard are our most popular budget materials. View here which other materials fall into this category.

Repetitive material discount

Are you ordering a number of different products? Then have them all cut from the same material to activate the 'repeating material discount'. This will automatically appear in your shopping cart.

Optimize your drawing

Place different parts in a drawing closer together, and remove double or unnecessary lines.

The entire line length is used to calculate how much time it takes us to produce a part. Make sure all the lines in your drawing are correct. You pay too much due to double or unnecessary lines, and that is a shame.

Volume discount

We can produce larger quantities of the same part more efficiently, which reduces the price per piece. In the shopping cart you can immediately see how much volume discount you can get for your part.


Do you want to produce on a larger scale? With the AutoSPOT, our automated laser cutter, we make large-scale laser cutting cost-efficient. Contact sales to discuss the possibilities.
