How to Buy a Right Technical Training Equipment?

The globalization of the economy has continuously strengthened the economic ties between countries and the rapid development of international trade. The products of economic globalization are not limited to daily necessities but large-scale technical training equipment. So as buyers of international trade, how can I protect our rights? How can I buy satisfactory vocational education training equipment? This blog post will help you buy the right technical training equipment.

Before placing an order, we should determine some issues.

1 Who uses this technical training equipment? Teachers and students/technical staff

In addition to agents, buyers of technical training equipment purchase directly from the education department or school staff. Agents need to figure out whether the equipment they buy will be sold to schools or some technicians in the future.

If it is sold to schools for teaching, then you need to consider the differences in the depth of courses taken at different grades. Teaching equipment for lower grades needs to be able to practice some basic skills at entry-level. In contrast, teaching equipment for upper grades needs to be able to perform some difficult training items, such as setting machine parameters, debugging equipment, troubleshooting machine failures, operating combined computer simulation technology, etc.

Suppose it is used by technicians for daily experiments. It is necessary to consider whether each part of this equipment can be flexibly loaded, unloaded, and updated according to needs.

It can be seen that the purchase of technical training equipment should take into account the target customers of the equipment.

Suppose government personnel comes to purchase technical training equipment. In that case, they must conduct research in advance to determine the teaching needs of teachers and then buy them. In addition, buyers need to consider Whether the schools that use these devices have enough space to accommodate these devices and whether there are supporting laboratories or training bases available. If there are no labs or training bases available at the school, are there any plans to build them? Once these questions are resolved, the purchaser will ask the supplier if they can help develop the laboratory, etc.

2 Are these devices used for teaching or competition?

If it is used for teaching, it is necessary to consider the majors for which these devices are suitable.

Generally speaking, electromechanical technology, electrical technology or electrical automation, industrial robotics, electronic technology, automatic control, and machinery manufacturing will use technical training equipment.

These specialties are highly specialized and focus on cultivating practical operation ability. In addition to practical classes, the school also arranges for students to go to factories and workshops for internships, combining knowledge from books with practical operations.

There are many types of vocational education training equipment. There are more than 10 training categories in the major of machinery manufacturing, including training equipment for different purposes. The space is limited, so I only selected 4 types of technical training equipment to briefly introduce the massive lineup of technical training equipment.

Mechatronics, industrial robotics training equipment

Industrial robots are widely used in automobile manufacturing, food processing, logistics, and other industries. In addition to industrial applications, it has also entered our daily life. Some scenic spots, restaurants, and farms also have robots. In scenic spots, you can see robot guide; in restaurants, robots will be responsible for ordering and serving dishes; on farms, robots pick fruits. How do robots help humans? The reason is that the technicians program the program on the computer to set the specified route and action-angle for the robot. After setting a series of parameters, the determining operation of the robot is realized.

Electrical automation training equipment

The electrical and electronic training series equipment can be used for a professional assessment of more than 20 majors, such as electronic technology. Vocational schools use training equipment to practice basic electrician operations, fault detection and elimination of electrical control equipment, installing and commissioning motor control circuits, and installing and commissioning PLC control circuits.

Mechanical design, CNC machine tool training equipment

Such equipment can be used in more than a dozen majors, such as mechanical design and manufacturing, mechanical manufacturing and automation, and numerical control technology. This equipment is used for daily teaching and assessment, training students in assembly and debugging transmission modules, CNC machine processing, motor control and common circuit installation, hydraulic and pneumatic training, etc. The experimental equipment used in some mechanical manufacturing majors can also be used in teaching electrical automation, such as hydraulic training equipment and pneumatic training equipment.

Building management system training equipment

Students of building intelligent engineering technology study: installation and maintenance of common power drag control lines and integrated wiring systems, fire safety power consumption, typical analog circuit assembly and debugging, motor fault maintenance, transformer winding and maintenance, common electricians, tools, And electrical instrument use, fitter operation, video surveillance, and security system operation and maintenance, air conditioning installation and maintenance, common elevator fault handling, automation control principles, computer control. Vocational schools with building intelligence-related majors use building management system training equipment to teach the above content. This training equipment is closely related to electrical automation training equipment, mechatronics, and industrial automation control.

Four types of vocational education training equipment are listed above. But in actual teaching, the teaching equipment used by each major far exceeds the above categories. Therefore, it is fortunate to find a complete equipment supplier.

Dolang has 20 kinds of technical training equipment, from PLC control and new energy training to Industry 4.0 training, all types of equipment, providing customers with various choices.

If it is used for competition, you need to choose professional training equipment that can be used for competition. There are two key points to choosing which equipment:

  • Whether this equipment can practice competition contents.
  • Whether the equipment manufacturer can provide competition training.

3 Always pay attention to economic and educational policies

As an agent, it is even more necessary to investigate the actual development of vocational education in the country. In addition to education, it is also particularly sensitive to education policies, economic policies, and global economic development trends. Some countries will vigorously support the development of a specific industry, promoting the rapid development of related majors in schools. For example, some regions advocate purchasing new energy equipment for energy shortages or environmental protection. And give some tax incentives to buyers of new energy technical training equipment, so some will prioritize new energy products.

4 How to find a qualified technical training equipment supplier?

Find out about the supplier’s qualifications

First, it depends on whether their equipment has relevant testing certificates and meets the industry’s international standards. In addition to looking at some certificates, you can also see whether the manufacturer is a member of some authoritative industry associations. Suppose the manufacturer has a test certificate and is an authoritative industry association member. In that case, the manufacturer’s equipment is guaranteed quality.

Agents also need to investigate whether the selected technical training equipment supplier has experience sponsoring equipment for vocational skills competitions. Suppose this supplier has sponsored vocational training kits for large-scale vocational skills competitions. In that case, this supplier has rich experience in vocational skills training and technical support. Manufacturers who have provided equipment for vocational skills competitions are more familiar with the competition items and can give competition training.


Inquire about lead time and delivery time

Before placing an order, ask if the equipment is in stock or needs to be stocked? Ask if it can be delivered on time and if it cannot be delivered on time, is there any compensation plan and solution. How long is the lead time?

Technical training equipment is high-value and bulky, so manufacturers typically only keep a little stock in stock but produce them on order. Therefore, it is vital to ask about the preparation time and the solution to the failure to deliver on time.


Ask about the payment method.

Safe, convenient, and diverse payment methods are a link that is of great concern to international traders. With the rapid development of cross-border trade, various payment methods have emerged. Common payment methods are PayPal, L/C, etc. As for which payment method to use, the trading parties can discuss this in detail when signing the contract. I won’t go into details here.

Ask if there are any extra charges other than those that appear in the contract.


After-sales service

Ask about the warranty period.

Usually, well-known technical training equipment manufacturers are also very mature after-sales services. For example, Dolang’s equipment has a one-year warranty with free replacement parts. Warranty period, technical support is indeed forever. Dolang provides permanent technical support for customers. If there is any problem during use, you can contact Dolang. Dolang will arrange for technical personnel to solve the problem after receiving it.

At this point, all the tips have been finished. Finally, let’s make a summary. The trick to buying the right technical training equipment is to figure out:

  • Who uses the equipment.
  • What the equipment is used for.
  • What kind of suppliers are trustworthy.

If you figure out these points, you will definitely be able to buy the right training equipment.
