How much is the processing capacity? The investment in stone factories of different production scales varies greatly.
What is the processing material? Different hardness materials require different equipment.
How about engineering geological conditions? Infrastructure investment in soft foundations and hard foundations varies widely.

Third, the post budget

1. Logistics cost
The machine used for stone production belongs to large-scale mining equipment. If a foreign manufacturer is selected, the customer should consider the long-distance logistics cost of the equipment. Sorting of freight rates: air transport > land transport > water transport.
2. Labor costs
According to the needs of production and management, employees with professional skills, such as accounting, equipment operators, drivers, monitoring room duty personnel, etc., need to be employed. These are the software inputs of the stone factory.

According to experience, the size of the stone factory varies from tens of thousands to tens of millions. The above introduction can be found that the medium-term budget accounts for a large proportion of the price of the stone factory. Therefore, customers should invest more energy in selecting equipment, try to conduct on-the-spot investigations, and fully understand the qualifications, scale and after-sales service of many manufacturers. Then make a reasonable decision.
