    Default Blue Elephant vs Acctek 1325

    I'm thinking of getting a Blue Elephant or Acctek 1325 for import into Europe. I've looked through all the forum posts related to the two manufacturers but I'm still having a hard time deciding between them. Would love to hear of anyone here's experience of the quality of the machines and customer service from these two companies.

    Thanks!

    I'm also talking to these same two companies and also quick fultek. Although I cannot speak as a current owner of either product, I'd be happy to share some of the questions and answers I've discovered so far. The one thing blue elephant has going over the other two is that they make their shelves in house as apposed to buying their shelves from a sub contractor. I did bring this up to acctek and their response was that they would take pictures of the sized shelves available and allow me to pick my shelve. This is pretty important as I've seen pictures in here of a lot of questionable welds. I bring up the third company quick-fultek because they are the only China company that has zero wholly negative comments about them in any of the forums I've checked. They are also the company that has the most USA agents. There are many "assembled in the USA" companies that resell the quick product with USA controller and electronics and even some that only slap their logo on it and rewrite an easy to follow wiring schematic and manual. The biggest drawback of any of the China companies from my research is electronics, controller and wiring schematics. I've asked all of them if they use proprietary wiring looms and it seems none of them do. I've also asked them all if they have real copy of the software and they all use a cracked copy of the software too. Please also share back anything you find out from these companies that might help me with my decision as I'm getting close to pulling the trigger. I'd like my machine by June 1st so need to order soon for that to happen. I'm getting from 37-45 days from beginning to at my doorstep from all the Frieght forwarders I've spoke with. Oh and one last thing, blue elephant test their machines before shipping for 3 days. Acctek says for 5 days. I asked for a full week of testing from both companies and they were both willing. I'm not sure if I'm benefiting or if there's a way to know that they've Truely complied with my request though.

    I have a Blue Elephant 1318-4 that's with a 4th axis rotary. Keep in mind that these machines are built to your specifications. The more you know how you want your machine to perform, the better suggestion you can ask for to have it built. My machine has (5) Leadshine Easy Servos ( Hybrid Stepper motors), 6hp HQD Air cooled spindle, vacuum table, (2) 2.2kw Vacuum pumps, popup alignment pins, Richauto B58 DSP controller with HDMI input, Coolant Mister. The least thing you need to be concerned about is whether their giving you cracked software, you have a choice not to use it but I highly doubt it. You have to ask yourself, why are you considering buying from China anyway? We all know the answer to that. Meanwhile, I highly suggest not to opt for the Mach3 controllers on any Chinese brand machines due to the inconsistency of functionality ( glitchy)...it's the WiXHC manufacturer not the cnc companies...either Richauto B series, Weihong/NCStudio ( DSP Offline controllers), Syntec, LNC, or Siemens ( PLC controllers). Trust me, your operations will be much smoother. Good luck.
