New partnership with the Chinese manufacturer WEIJING for hydraulic wedges and impactors

«In response to several clients' requests, we have sought to enhance our offerings to become the specialist in part finishing across Europe. After a six-month extensive test in a reputable UK foundry, we have forged a new partnership with the Chinese manufacturer WEIJING for their hydraulic wedges and impactors, facilitating the separation of casting parts from their gating system. We have worked to upgrade this equipment to our standards to ensure our customers receive the same level of reliability and after-sales service that P.S. Auto Grinding is renowned for”, so Paul & Christopher Smith.

European industries may be hesitant to invest in Chinese equipment

In the opinion of the two managers, there are several reasons why European industries may be hesitant to invest in Chinese equipment despite their open lower prices:

  • Quality and reliability: Their quality and reliability may vary. European companies may fear additional costs related to repair, replacement, and production downtime.
  • After-sales service: The availability of spare parts and the speed of technical support. They may fear that Chinese manufacturers cannot offer the same level of service as European manufacturers, leading to prolonged downtime and production disruptions.
  • Safety and compliance standards: Equipment may not always comply with European safety and compliance standards. Customers may fear not being able to comply with local health and safety regulations if they use Chinese machines, leading to fines and litigation.
  • Brand image and reputation: Investing in Chinese equipment may be perceived as a compromise of price over quality and reliability, which could tarnish the brand image and reputation with their customers. Companies may prefer to invest in locally manufactured machines or in countries known for their quality and innovation to maintain their competitive position in the market.

All equipment and spare parts stock are based in Germany

Due to Paul & Christopher Smith, there are no longer many reputable foundry equipment manufacturers in Europe, some even hide the origin of manufacture behind the “Made in” brand. «We at P.S. Auto Grinding believe in our ethos of being transparent in our drive for perfection. Through this partnership, we address our customers' needs for quality and price, as well as their concerns through our after-sales service. All equipment and spare parts stock are based in Germany to ensure next day delivery to most areas in Europe », so Paul & Christopher Smith. « We remain at your disposal for any inquiries and information regarding these new product ranges: Hydraulic Wedges Breaker and impactors.«
