In technical factory, they have precise machine to tapping on a big panel side by side to guarantee the position finished accurately. The manual operation of small factory will appear error often, so you can judge the quality from tapping easily.

 

3. Board cutting

This is the first step of kitchen cabinet process. Large factory will put the cutting size data into computer to process by cutting saw machine then cutting several pieces board by once time, so that board will not appear any error or others damage. If cut board worker with saw, it will be crumble easily.
