    Default What is the name of the machine?

    Hello Everyone,

    Our facotry makes tempered glass lids for pots and pans, and as you know, tempered glass lids are of two parts, stainless steel rim and the domed tempered glass. There is a machine which is to put the rim and domed glass together .

    I would like to know here how we should call the machine?

    Regards

    Sky

    This is specialized English. Since you work in the factory, what do you call this machine?

    bao - to wrap or encircle
    bian - rim
    ji - machine

    I am no specialist in factory machines but I think you can call it a rimming machine.
