Almost all kinds of plastic cutter have hole/holes on the plastic surface, customer can not accept the hole/holes and still looked for goods in stock, purchaser had to find the specific design which without the hole/holes.
|Purchaser's reply for client's doubt|
Due to the very urgent delivery schedule, customer accept products without logo, purchaser found three suppliers which have goods in stock, then customer chose one of them and placed order.
Even is a rush order, quality still a top concern for customer, purchaser had to provide specific quality requirements to supplier.
|Quality's requirement for factory|
Defective rate 1.6% in mass production which failed to meet the requirement, mainly caused by the old mold, if using new mold then will improve product quality and reduce defective rate, but the plastic shell will has two holes which customer didn’t like.

The old mold structure is divided into two pieces, and there is a separate plastic part at the blade, and the new mold adds two more round holes, but the plastic part is a complete set.
