Visit from our Chinese Partners


In Coventry, until just before the Christmas holidays, are two very special guests from our Chinese partners European Turning Technologies. Wang Zongchen and Zhou Jun are experienced engineers from Kunshan, but are training at our site to become more familiar with Wickman machines and multi-spindle operations.

Although the technology is widely used in Europe and the US, single spindle machines are still prevalent in China where labour costs have traditionally been low. Learning is always a two-way process and our new friends are teaching us a great deal too, both about their culture and about the Chinese metal-working industry.
