People tend to go into business for different reasons. Some have a passion for what they are doing and some folks just see an opportunity to make money. I guess one reason is not by default better than the other, in both cases you have to try and serve your customers well to stay in business. The difference sometimes comes down to the level of service that each type of company can offer and what type of products they offer for sale.
Soigeneris got started as a result of needing to buy a small table top mill for a university research project. We found a good machine from Taig, and over time found out what nice folks they were. What our research turned up was that there were a few good companies out there, selling the smaller scale CNC products that were very good and very knowledgeable. We also found several that were of questionable nature, usually making wild claims about accuracy/resolution that were just nonsense.
Coming from an industrial background and into the university laboratory setting, in both arenas I was used to having access to reliable data on a piece of equipment from which to judge its suitability for a particular project. With the smaller scale CNC equipment it seemed the quality of information, as well as the quality of the equipment, was wildly variable.
Soigeneris was started to try and bring both good quality information and good quality products to the small scale CNC market. The products we sell are those we use in our own shop, good quality products that we are proud to own, use ourselves and recommend to others. We test a lot of different products and many of them don’t make the grade. We won’t offer something for sale just because we think we can make a buck on it.
Some of our products are the result of customer feedback. The EZ-G540 is a great example of this. Customers commented that they did not like soldering on the DB9 connectors and for some finding the right resistor to use was difficult. So the EZ-G540 was designed to meet these needs and has been a great success (so much so that other vendors copied the design!)
