4.What kinds of CNC machines do Chinese factories usually use?


Besides the above-mentioned machines made overseas, Chinese factories also choose brands that are made domestically. For instance, Genertec Dalian Machine Tool (DMTG), Shenyang Machine Tool Co., Ltd. (SMTCL), and JIER Machine-Tool Group Co., Ltd. (JIER)[7]. Generally speaking, among the top brands mentioned above, CNC machines made by Japanese companies or German companies produce the parts with the best precision and quality, but these machines also cost a lot more than machines made in China. However, components require less precision and quality, Chinese machines would be a superb choice, as these machines are usually very economical.
