Choose a local manufacturer or a Chinese manufacturer
What are the advantages?
- When choosing a local manufacturer, the slitter knife can be purchased at a reasonable price and can meet the local market's demand.
- The production that is done by adopting a traditional method with manual processing and low-cost labor will be designed according to the requirements and needs of each industry. Because only manual processing is needed, high-quality products are also produced.
- Choosing a Chinese manufacturer has the advantages of fast delivery and cheap cost of labor.
- The quality of the Chinese products may be lower than those produced by local manufacturers. But this does not mean that all Chinese products are inferior; you still need to choose a manufacturer carefully and ensure they can produce a product of good quality.
How to confirm the quality of the product before purchasing?
- You can view it yourself. Visit their factory directly, or ask a third party to visit it in your place.
- A machine's quality is also determined by its parts. A part produced locally can be easier to understand because you can visit the factory yourself. Still, if it is a Chinese manufacturer, you need to visit their factory or contact them with a third party before purchasing.
- The machine's appearance may look good, but do not judge the quality solely on appearance.
