The most common processing technology for hardware accessories processing is through modern technology. Development of the plating of the surface of the hardware accessories, to ensure that…

Advantages of vacuum coating technology

Compared with wet coating technology, vacuum coating technology has the following advantages: (1) The film and the substrate are widely selected, and the film thickness can be controlled to prepare a functional film having various functions. (2) The film is prepared under vacuum conditions, the environment is clean, and the film is not easily contaminated,…

Why is there a big different in CNC quotation

Cnc processing manufacturers have different advantages, small factories are suitable for proofing, large manufacturers are suitable for large quantities, and must find suitable CNC processing plants according to our own requirements, usually calculated according to the length of product processing time. So how do you calculate the cnc processing price? 1. Problems with the processing…

3D printing is a technology that changes The Times

3D printing, which was born about 30 years ago, is also known as additive manufacturing (AM). At first, 3D printing was only a small hobby, and it was soon used in rapid prototyping (RP) and manufacturing workshops. Faster, lower cost production processes. Nowadays, new production-grade printers and materials that can replace metal and glass-reinforced parts…
