related items for years to come.
New Factory Overview:
Some Interesting Facts about Century:
||Dongguan, Guandong, China (about 2 hours drive from Hong Kong Airport)
|Lot Sq Ft:
||34,000 (factory and dormitory) + parking lot
All advanced CNC machines, 4 axle CNC
mills, hi-speed CNC lathe, digital auto press machine for muffler producing, complete plastic
injection machinery. Machine shop currently operates 24/7 in 3 shifts.
| Office of the General Manager (Peter
Chao), Deputy Manager's Office, and meeting
room are on this floor. Purchasing staff,
secretaries, accounting team, QC staff,
R & D team, and engineers all share work
on this floor too. The new muffler production
facility is also on this floor.
Two 20-meter rolling assembly tables are currenntly being used. There are also many small tables for special project assemblies.
Parts storage and some light machinery are on this floor too. Assembly workers operate in double shifts from
8 am to 10 pm to achieve targeted output of 60% to 80% production increase by the end of 2007.
* Unlike our competitors who are OEM-based brand name companies, we produce our products in our
. We can therefore control production
which translates to producing much better and higher
quality products at a reasonable price. We also control the production schedule which means we could
shorten time needed in manufacturing and shipping products.
* Century Helicopter Products is looking forward in 2007, that we can turn out to be #1 R/C helicopter
* Plastic injection molding machine making swashplate bushings.
* CNC mill making the new Gasser braces.
* CNC lathe making main shafts.
Click on the thumbnails to see a bigger picture. Let's begin.
On the left resides the offices and manufacturing. To the right are the dormitories provided for the employees.
Here we have the break room, various cubicles, meeting room, and various managers' offices. These are on the second level.
Much like any R&D room, this area is messy.
Here is the start of the manufacturing floor. This is one of the plastic injection molding machines.
Lots of tooling for plastic injection molds. These tools are heavy so a crane must be used to move and manuever the tools into place during tool changes.
Various CNC mills and lathes.
Swift frames are one of the items that come out of the injection molding machines.
What are your plastic parts made of? DuPont Zytel
plastic pellets on the left, final product Swift
blade grip on the right (middle image). Other plastic parts (rightmost image).
CNC Lathe, making feathering shafts. Main shafts from the CNC lathe (rightmost image)
Aluminum blocks waiting to be cut into Predator
headblocks. Machined plates waiting to be machined
into arms (middle image). Right is the piece before
the final machining process, the left is the part
that's left over (rightmost image).
New metal blade grip arms. Anyone need a seesaw
shaft (rightmost image)?
Machined parts midway through processes. Jigs for making multiple parts in one run (right image)
Cutting bits, drill bits, tapping bits, etc... for the machines.
Making some test mufflers.
Gasser mufflers being polished and ready for shipment.
