In many cases, we could help customers to identify such kind of opportunities to save both material and labor cost. Normally customer is used to applying traditional way to produce welding component and assembly, and not aware of other better and cheap way due to being lack of abundant professional knowledge and enough communication with their suppliers.
For example, we got a RFQ from one of our customers to produce clamp assembly in welding process 3 years ago. After we carefully checked the drawing and sample, we fully understood product function so that we propose to re-rebuild this part via casting process. It takes Shantin 6 months to finish this project and the new part benefits customers lower cost. Shantin now is in mass production of these parts for customers as well.
