The domestic metal stamping die industry has a bright future
In recent years, the rapid development of China's architectural hardware, automotive electronics, digital technology and other industries, the mold industry has become the mainstream of production and sales boom, the development of the mold industry has become the metal stamping industry engine. Recently, the International Model Association Secretary-General Luo Baihui said that China's mold industry due to the continuous development of mechanical, automotive and electronic information industry and other major demand for mold, China's mold production to maintain a rapid growth of more than 25%; from the international perspective, on the one hand is China's mid-range The mold has strong competitiveness, and the proportion of international manufacturers entering China is increasing year by year. On the other hand, the transfer of mold consumption from the industrialized countries to China will slow down, and the mold industry will continue to operate at high speed.
The prosperous production and demanding market environment and good prospects have made many entrepreneurs and investors actively invest in China's mold industry, of which foreign capital and private capital are still the mainstream, investment enthusiasm is generally high, because the cluster industry is easy to collaborate, reduce costs, expand The market, facilitates exchanges and enjoys preferential policy features, so it is optimistic about market conditions. Today, there are more than 50 mold and die parks, as well as a clustering industry base with a considerable scale. More than 10 are being established, planned or planned. In addition to the cluster base, some places are still developing mold entity alliances and virtual manufacturing.
With the development of the market economy, the brand effect has become more and more important, and "operating the brand" has become a very important job for mold enterprises. It is reported that there are about 10 famous molds and brands at the provincial and municipal levels throughout the country, and ordinary enterprises have already applied for national famous trademarks. With the deepening of quality obligations and the emphasis on environmental protection, a large number of mold companies have passed the ISO9000 international quality system certification and ISO14000 environmental management certification. At the same time, a large number of high-tech companies have been added to the industry, including national and provincial and municipal levels, and many companies have established mold and technology centers or R&D centers. Guangdong will become the center of the mold industry in the world. At present, more than 10,000 mold companies have gathered around Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta, and the number of employees exceeds 200,000.
Benefited from the national environment for revitalizing the equipment manufacturing industry and strong market demand, the domestic machine tool industry has witnessed rapid technological development and high investment enthusiasm. The level, variety, and production capacity of CNC machine tools reflect the country's overall technical and economic strength. As the strategic equipment of the national defense industry, CNC machine tools are the most important means of manufacturing all kinds of weapons and equipment and are an important guarantee for the modernization of national defense and military equipment. However, revitalizing the CNC machine tool industry has a certain degree of difficulty for the machine tool industry. According to Luo Baihui, the digital manufacturing technology required for the development of CNC machine tools is the core of advanced manufacturing and is the key to achieving independent innovation. Therefore, for the whole industry, rejuvenating the CNC machine tool industry is both a strategic opportunity and a severe challenge.
China's CNC machine tool R & D and production will appear the following trends:
1. More extensive application of composite processing technology New types of composite processing machine tools such as lathe milling and milling machine tools, lathe compound machine tools, gear machining compound lathes, lathe milling and 5-axis linkage combined machine tools and other products continue to emerge; heavy machine tools to increase multi-function Attachment and turntable, etc., the trend of composite processing is obvious; new progress has been made in the compounding of metal cutting and special processing, and laser, electric machining and cutting and processing composite technologies have already had mature product promotion applications. The promotion and application of composite processing technology will have an important impact on the production process of many varieties and small batches.
2. Speeding up application of direct drive technology Due to advances in power electronics and numerical control technology, as well as the maturation of components such as linear motors, torque motors, spindles, and gratings, the application speed of direct drive technology in CNC machine tools is accelerating. Many foreign machine tool companies The new product has been driven by a linear motor. The application of direct drive technology will greatly promote the structural changes and performance improvement of CNC machine tools.
3. Micro-manufacturing technology: Inter-Micro refers to a high-efficiency, green, and high-precision microfabrication technology that is used to process various miniature parts in 3D shapes. At present, under the auspices of the European Union, research groups composed of universities and research institutes in Germany, Italy, and other relevant countries have achieved relevant results, such as ultra-precision 5-axis linkage of micro-diamonds and cubic boron nitride tool processing technology equipment, etc. . Micro-manufacturing technology has great application potential and should attract the attention of the industry
