The ROI of an in-house PCB prototyping machine is easy to compute based on cutting out outstanding costs alone. But what's exciting to a manager who's glad they approved the capital equipment expenditure (CapEx) of a mechanical or laser-milling machine is seeing the machines at work in the hands of engineers solving other problems.
