3. The One with Good Quality Control

Quality is the most important thing we care about on our way to find the right CNC machining manufacturer, and quality control ability shows how good the quality will be. Before we can know the quality without any product on hand, the best way is to have a study of how their quality control is. For CNC machining industry, a medical-grade supplier’s quality control should be excellent but that would add expense to a commercial-grade product that may not need such high level. Quality control for commodity-type parts will be at a lower but appropriate level. The typical quality control flow for a machining company is incoming raw material inspection, In-Process Quality Check, Finished Parts Inspection, Outgoing Quality Control.

5. Ask for Prototyping Before Production

For CNC machining industry, prototype or sample is the best way to know the machining quality. CNC machined services don’t make any mold, which cost a lot in the metal die-casting process. So it won’t cost you much to have the sample made through CNC machining process. In China, most CNC factories provide samples within 3 working days, and you only need to pay the set-up cost, material cost, and shipping cost. If the quantity you required for production reached a certain amount, the initial cost can be returned back. If the sample is not good enough, you can change for another machine shop without big losses.

6. The One with Good Customer Service

After prototyping process, you’ll have a better idea of how easy it is to communicate with the machining company. Do they listen to your needs? Do they stick to deadlines? Do you enjoy working together? All these shows you how well the customer service of the company you are working with. If the CNC machining manufacturer meets your needs through the prototyping process, they’re more likely to be the right one. In China, most of the machining company have good customer service, they have flexible working on your changing needs, deadlines, and budget. And they are willing to try something new in order to meet your quality standards.
