CNC Machined/Machining Parts Manufacturers Under COVID
Know how CNC machined/machining parts manufacturers are affected by COVID-19. X Rapid Technologies continues to offer quality services even under the pandemic.
X Rapid Technologies- An efficient CNC machined part manufacturers for your company
X Rapid Technologies is a reliable CNC machined part manufacturer that creates precise machine parts that resemble the product planning accurately.
In the recent market scenario, the work style of CNC machined part manufacturers has also changed. The Zero Covid policy of China has changed how CNC machined part manufacturers work across the globe. Before the pandemic, CNC machining part manufacturers used to take hundreds of orders at a time, but as the pandemic started, the work process of CNC machined part manufacturers changed and now CNC machining part manufacturers don't take a huge order at one time. To avoid the Covid outbreak, every case had to be identified and disposed of quickly to cut off that transmission chain. Thus, the Covid 19 pandemic has changed how CNC machining manufacturers work across the globe.
As we have to live with the virus in our environment, CNC machined part manufacturers in various continents are still following the prevention policy.
The challenges CNC machining manufacturers had to face in the co-in-19 pandemic
CNC machining manufacturers had to face several challenges throughout the Covid 19 pandemic and even after the situation got under control.
Fewer orders from the foreign countries
CNC machining manufacturers used to take a lot of orders from different countries as the manufacturing industry is not restricted by any geographical border. When the pandemic occurred, the orders from foreign countries decreased, and CNC machining manufacturers had to work within geographical territories.
Limited influence on international shipment
Most orders of CNC machined part manufacturers are shipped via international express, but when the pandemic occurred, the orders of CNC machining part manufacturers got delayed because of several restrictions on the airlines and the ports.
How have the challenges helped CNC machining part manufacturers to improve?
As the pandemic situation occurred, CNC machined part manufacturers had fewer orders and projects to do, so they shifted their dimension and invested their time in improvement. Though it was a hard time for CNC machining manufacturers, it also helped CNC machining part manufacturers to gain more knowledge about the process and learn more techniques to make complex designs precisely.
Why are products by CNC machining part manufacturers preferred over other technologies?
CNC machining parts manufacturers used their skills to create precise CNC machine parts. CNC machining is undoubtedly the best process to create prototypes and several products for different industries, including the automotive and retail industries.
The products by CNC machining part manufacturers are always preferred over other technology as the products made by CNC machined part manufacturers are more precise and accurately resemble the product planning.
The products by CNC machining manufacturers involve less human labor as it is an automatic computing technology that makes accurate designs, no matter how complex they are. Compared to other technologies, products by CNC machined part manufacturers are more strong and more durable.
Prototypes by CNC machining manufacturers are famous across the globe as this famous prototyping technology helps manufacturers to understand how the actual product will look and work so that they can do the necessary changes.
How the CNC machining part manufacturers of X Rapid Technologies turned this bad time into a time to improve?
The CNC machining part manufacturers of X Rapid technologies were not ready to give up; rather, they started to learn more techniques and improve their skills as CNC machining manufacturers. We also developed our website and launched that with new observations about the advancement of CNC machining. Our CNC machining manufacturers gathered the previous projects and read them to understand how we can do better. The Zero Covid policy has become an opportunity for CNC machined part manufacturers to learn more and provide their customers with a better experience once the storm is over.
2022 is the third year since COVID-19 broke out. China still sticks to the dynamic zero-COVID policy. How does it affect those CNC machining manufacturers?
Firstly, let us have a glimpse of the definition of a dynamic zero-COVID policy. It is the general policy of the current prevention and control of the COVID-19 epidemic in China and refers to an integration of comprehensive prevention and control measures taken in China to quickly extinguish the outbreak in the present situation when there are indigenous cases. Under this policy, once a case occurs, it should be quickly identified and disposed of, thus cutting off the transmission chain, and achieving the goal of zero transmission in communities outside quarantine.
Following the lockdown of the first-tier city Shenzhen, the city with the largest number of cases was in lockdown for a while. Fortunately, most CNC machining manufacturers are located in Guangdong province. X Rapid Technologies is in Shenzhen city. Thanks to excellent epidemic prevention and control measures, we are running normally but do be affected.
1. Orders from foreign countries do decrease
Many CNC machined part manufacturers receive orders from companies outside China. Because of the epidemic, many big companies we serve have reduced R&D work. For example, an automotive company stops all new car development jobs. As a result, the orders of CNC machined parts for testing have decreased.
Also, as the international situation is getting more complex, the businesses of many of our clients are growing very slowly, which has a negative effect on suppliers like us as well.
2. The influence on international shipment is limited
Most orders of CNC machined part manufacturers are shipped via international express as the quantity for prototypes is small in most cases. Due to the stronger infectiousness of Omicron, the time of some logistics staff back to work is delayed. Air logistics is mainly affected by the obstruction of road logistics distribution. Some routes are delayed or adjusted. But the overall impact is expected to be small because of the substantial scale effect of air logistics and the more mature measures of airport disinfection and prevention.
The negative impact on sea transportation for orders in a larger batch is limited too. Domestic port operations remain stable, and the efficiency of land transportation in the collection and handling ports has slightly declined in the early stage of the epidemic lock. However, ports can partially mitigate the negative impact by opening dedicated channels, increasing water-water/water-rail transit, and the synergy of ports in the region. The subsequent catch-up effect will likely minimize the adverse impact if the epidemic is under control.
The prices are also stable now at lease in Shenzhen.
3. Fewer projects mean more time for thinking, learning, and refreshing
As one of the CNC machining parts manufacturers in Shenzhen, X Rapid Technologies also gets fewer projects, which is a two-sided sword for us. There is more time for us to do something else instead of only working on projects one after one. We reconstructed our website for a new look and launched it on March 4. We collected previous projects and gathered processing knowledge to share our experience and knowledge about rapid prototyping and low-volume production. Also, we shared some impressive cases and news about the industries we serve on our new website. Our official social media accounts, including LinkedIn and Facebook, were also created. We will continue to update our blog and social media content in the coming days. We are expecting interaction with you.
Honestly, the dynamic zero-COVID policy is a challenge and a chance for CNC machined part manufacturers at the same time. We believe that we will all “live with” the epidemic one day. And X Rapid Technologies will always be the CNC machining parts manufacturer that keeps learning and growing with our clients. Be hopeful and do what we can do at the moment. Things are gonna be OK.
As China has opened up again at the end of 2022, we believe the year 2023 would be promising. X Rapid Technologies is always grateful for all the trust and support from our beloved clients and is willing to make 2023 a year of prosperity together!
