A while ago, a new customer approached us for a quote on a product from China that consisted of several CNC machined parts; including an anodized aluminum housing, brass threaded insert, o-ring, and several fasteners. Some of the dimensions had tight tolerances, within .001 – .002.
The product required assembly and custom packaging in China. He had received a domestic quote of around $2.00 for the product; the problem was he needed to sell his product for $2.00 and still make money. Our quote came in at just over 60 cents for the complete, machined and assembled product – 70% less than the domestic quote. He was thrilled at being able to sell his product at a competitive price with a wide profit margin.
Of course, a low price is meaningless if the parts are out of tolerance or have a poor finish. Our factory has nearly 100 machines, including CNC lathes, machining centers, and custom machinery created for our customer’s jobs. They also have a temperature controlled quality control and inspection lab, with certified gages.
How to Find the Best Factory in China for Your Product
Our factory in China consistently held the tolerances shown in the drawings for all components, and the finish was first class. Since then, we’ve made hundreds of thousands of parts for this customer.

Although a competitive price is what sparks the need for our customers to source their parts and products from China, quality is just as important. Some of today’s CNC machine shops in China have late model equipment with the ability to manufacture to close tolerances, ISO certification (as does the factory mentioned above), and computerized inspection equipment such as coordinate measuring machines, and utilize SPC (statistical process control).
