Why is a Lagun Milling Machine Better Than a Bridgeport?
When it comes to milling machines, the two most popular brands that come to mind are Bridgeport and Lagun. Both of these are household names in the industry, known for producing high-quality machines. However, we argue that Lagun milling machines are a better investment than Bridgeport machines for five main reasons.
1. Consistent Quality and Reliability
Lagun has been in business for over 50 years, producing a wide range of milling machines with a high level of consistency in terms of their quality and reliability. They are designed to last for years and can handle any workload, making them a great choice for businesses that require a dependable machine. On the other hand, Bridgeport has been criticized for inconsistent quality control, which can lead to unexpected downtime and maintenance costs.
2. Improved Technology and Features
Lagun milling machines are equipped with advanced features, such as automatic tool changers, power drawbars, and high-resolution digital readouts. These features make it easier and faster to set up the machine for machining and improve the accuracy of the final product. Bridgeport machines, on the other hand, often require additional add-ons to get the same level of functionality.
3. Better Price Point
Lagun milling machines typically come in at a lower price point than Bridgeport machines, allowing businesses to invest more in additional equipment or staffing. This lower cost of ownership can be especially beneficial for small to medium-sized businesses that have a limited budget.
4. Range of Sizes and Configurations
Lagun offers a wide range of milling machines in different sizes and configurations, allowing you to choose the perfect machine for your business. This flexibility is especially beneficial for businesses with a variety of projects or those who want a machine that can handle any type of job.
5. Better Customer Service and Support
Lagun has a reputation for providing top-notch customer service and support which can be essential for keeping your machines running without delay. This level of support reduces downtime and increases overall productivity, allowing businesses to get more out of their investment in their equipment. In contrast, Bridgeport has been criticized for being unresponsive to customer service inquiries and for not providing adequate support.
In conclusion, while both Bridgeport and Lagun milling machines are popular in the industry, the latter is the better investment. Lagun milling machines offer superior quality and reliability, advanced technology and features, more flexible pricing options, a range of sizes and configurations, and exceptional customer service and support.
