In recent days, at the production workshop of Foshan Liming Mechanical Manufacturing Co., Ltd., located in the Robot Integration Innovation Center in Guangdong, China, workers systematically loaded a 9m × 4m machine onto a truck bound for Shanghai.
This colossal machine is the independently developed large five-axis machining center N5-Q9040 by Liming Mechanical. "We aim to produce affordable five-axis machine tools for the Chinese market," affirmed Lin Zhenguang, founder and general manager of Liming Mechanical.

"At the beginning, we had no reputation. We relied on solid efforts to earn customer recognition. Initially, we could only produce prototypes, allowing customers to personally experience the machining process," stated Lin Zhenguang.
After successful testing, Liming Mechanical gained the client's approval. Consequently, this Shanghai-based company maintained long-term cooperation with Liming Mechanical and, in 2022, returned to customize the N5-Q9040 five-axis machining center.

Breaking the reliance on imports
Historically, domestic high-end machine tools, especially five-axis CNC machine tools, have long depended on foreign imports, with technology transfer facing various restrictions. This has resulted in elevated prices for advanced CNC machine tools. Going forward, Liming Mechanical aims to further enhance the international competitiveness of domestically produced multi-axis precision machining machine tools.
