1.1 Training & Industry Support

Most of our partners have one or several fields that they work in. You don’t need to be a professional in every application field. The most common area to name, for example, jewelry polishing, zinc die castings, aluminum dies casting field, stainless steel laser cutting parts deburring, steel stamping parts deburring etc.

Base on our partner focus field, we offer practical advice with our 30 years’ experience. For example, a potential partner locates with belt manufacturing area. In this area, most belt buckle made from Zink (zamak3). So we can recommend him/her to use our vibratory finishing process for smoothing process to replace manual work.

We will tell our partner what should do and what should not do, from which point we start our work and where we end our job. So our partner doesn’t need to make his own try.

1.2 FREE workpiece Testing Service

Having a testing room is expensive but it is helpful when a new business comes. To help our partner have a good starting, we offer FREE workpieces testing service.

When our partner receives inquiry with workpieces sample, he/she can send us the parts with the surface requirement. After we receive the workpieces sample, we will carry out our laboratory test. Then we send the sample back with all process details and video. Therefore, our partner can explain better to convince the customer.

The workpieces processing is also important to select the right media and chemical. Because we have thousands of collections of media with different size, shape, recipe, to choose the right media and chemical combination is the key to success.

1.4 Machine type and model recommendation

Selecting right machine type and model is not an easy task. Therefore many factors need to take into consideration. Bellow, we make the short list of issue that we think important:

  • Workshop area for machine and operators
  • Daily production volume for workpieces
  • How many shifts of the customer factory?
  • Customer budget for the project

 

2. Beneficial Price

The profit of the partner comes from the difference between buying and selling price. To motivate our partner, we will offer a prize package including machine, media, and chemicals. The profit is enough to cover housing, labor, tax, and shipments. On top of that, our partner doesn’t need to make a huge investment in the first stock.

Competitive price compared with USA/Europe Product

For media manufactured from USA or Europe, the price is way higher than those made in China. Besides, in China, we have our own Kaolin mine resource to keep a stable price without affected by the raw material market.

3. Market Protection

It is not an easy task to explore new market and gain a good reputation. A well establishes business usually take years of effort to build trust.

One of our partner Anton distribute our product in Belarus, he is our exclusive reseller, so we will not sell to anyone else in that countries. If anyone sends us an inquiry through email, we will forward contact information to Anton.

In some countries, we may appoint more than two distributors. To avoid competing with each other, they either work in different application field or work in a different area. For example, a distributor locates in Ho Chi Minh City will not compete with another distributor located in Hanoi (Vietnam).
