Guardian Safety Chuck
Lower Cost of Ownership Saves Money, Saves Time, and Gives You Higher Quality and Performance
Montalvo’s Guardian Safety Chucks give you a lower cost of ownership compared to other manufacturer’s chucks. When upgrading your current chucks or adding chucks to a new machine, incorporating the total cost of ownership into your selection ensures long term benefits beyond just the initial purchase price.
For example, consider the following scenario:
A pair of Montalvo Guardian Safety Chucks, compared to a pair of lower cost safety chucks from another manufacturer. If maintenance/replacements need to be performed once a year here is what the costs look like over 5 years.
*numbers utilized do not represent any actual pricing, but are strictly for example purposes.
|Chucks Purchase Price||$2,000.00||$1,000.00|
|# of Times Maintenance Performed Per Year||1||1|
|Cost Per Maintenance||$500.00||$1,000.00|
|Year 1 Cost||$2,500.00||$2,000.00|
|3 Year Total Cost||$3,500.00||$4,000.00|
|5 Year Total Cost||$4,500.00||$6,000.00|
Although the other manufacturer’s chuck is 50% less in initial purchase price; in only 3 years an individual has ended up spending more money, due to higher maintenance costs. Even more so by year 5. Montalvo Guardian Chucks feature hardened, field replaceable inserts which greatly reduce maintenance cost and time. Replace just the inserts and not the entire handwheel or chuck.
This gap will only widen when factoring in the Guardian Chucks hardened design, and higher quality construction potentially lowering the number of times maintenance will need to even be performed.
Not to mention an easier maintenance process and taking less time to perform maintenance and alignment, saving even more time and money.
