Under the epidemic, mask machines (servo motors) became urgently needed. In the face of the surge in demand for masks, many person in charge of masks and mask machine manufacturers told us that at present, mask machines are rarely in stock and the prices are rising rapidly.
A few days ago, the General Administration of Customs issued a paper announcement on the inspection of export commodities such as medical masks and other 11 categories of articles, and once again put the masks on the attention boom. With the continuous spread of the new coronavirus in the world, the N95 mask machine, which is mainly for export, has become the target of competition.
"Spot welding machine, film machine, small meltblown machine, as long as it is in stock, the price is easy to say." In order to get a mask machine spot, many business owners even squatted in front of the mask machine factory and other shipments. Some listed companies have also transformed their production lines and urgently switched to mask machines. However, the delivery risks caused by multiple reselling, the repeated commissioning caused by the rush to go online, and the high defective rate caused by lack of experience have also surfaced.
"The mask machine is the banknote printing machine." In the past two months, this sentence has been convinced by various businesses. "I didn't go home during the New Year. I was watching and grabbing it a year ago. I watched the price of a fully automatic KN95 mask machine increase from a high price to a Bentley." Mr. Li, a factory owner in Shenzhen, told reporters that the outbreak The automatic KN95 mask machine has soared from 400,000 yuan to a maximum of 4 million yuan. "There is now a fall, and the price is also about 1.3 million to 1.8 million yuan."
The impact of capital and some local policies is also heating up this market. As early as February, the Guangdong Provincial Department of Industry and Information Technology provided production incentives to equipment companies such as mask machines and other critically-needed equipment and key components. The reward amount can reach up to 50% of the equipment price. Golden Sun, a listed company that produces mask machines, received a letter of concern from the Shenzhen Stock Exchange because it won three consecutive daily limit boards. Even listed companies such as Winshare Technology and Tuostar have also crossed the border and set their sights on the mask machine business.
Supervision tightened, and qualification certification became a "tight spell"
The reporter learned that masks can be roughly divided into two categories: ordinary masks and medical masks. In addition to export and import rights, merchants need different qualifications for customs clearance in different countries and regions. For example, medical masks need to be certified by the US FDA before they can be put on the market, and masks exported to the EU must be affixed with the CE mark regardless of whether they are medical or non-medical. Domestic manufacturers need to be certified in advance according to the relevant requirements of the countries where foreign customers are located.
