Over the last years the requirements on products have constantly risen as e.g. due to digitization more technology has to be fitted into these products. For this purpose highly advanced production machines are needed where quality and precision is key. A lot of potential exists for upgrading production processes in China and worldwide to match the increased product requirements.
