Machinery manufacturing is the most basic industry in a country, and it also determines the overall level of a country's manufacturing industry. In China, it started early, but its development is the most worrying.
With the increasingly fierce competition in the international market, China's machinery manufacturing industry is facing severe challenges.
We are already behind in technology, and we can only obtain better technology and development through too much machining work.
So, let's take a look at the current situation of the machining industry in China.
At present, the general development trend of China's machining industry is: flexibility, agility, intelligence and informatization.
The important characteristics of the machining industry in the early 21st century are its globalization, networking, virtualization and environmental protection coordination.
Today, the world structure of the machining industry has changed and is still taking major changes. The situation of 3 pollars of Europe, Asia and the United States has been formed. It seems that the focus of the world economy has begun to shift to Asia. The structure and production mode are also changing rapidly. All these situations bring a rare opportunity. Challenges and opportunities coexist, so we should face up to the challenges, seize the opportunities, make great efforts and strive for strength, to develop China's machining industry.
The 2017-2022 China Processing Machinery Industry Development Prospect Analysis and Development Strategy Research Report shows that the development of modern science and technology has put forward higher and updated requirements for the equipment manufacturing industry, which further highlights the mechanical processing industry as a carrier of high-tech industrialization. It plays an irreplaceable basic role in the technological progress and industrial upgrading of the whole society.
As the driving force of national economic growth and technological upgrading, the machining industry will progress together with the development of new technologies and emerging industries, and fully reflect the development of advanced manufacturing technology towards intelligence, flexibility, networking, precision, greening and globalization. direction of development.
More importantly, the equipment manufacturing industry provides important material technologies for the development and production of new technologies and new products, and is an indispensable strategic industry for economic advancement. Even the industrialized countries that have entered the "information society" attach great importance to the development of the machining industry.
Localization of Basic Machine Equipment
In the machining industry, machine tools, tools, fixtures, testing instruments, etc. are all basic equipment. The quality of basic equipment largely determines the machining level. However, there are many key components in basic equipment that are not able to be produced in China.
But it must rely on imports. This is a restriction to the China’s development on mechanical processing industry. In the future, our country will actively promote the localization of basic equipment.
Advanced processing technology
Developed countries use more advanced processing methods and processing technologies such as high-precision processing, fine processing, micro-processing, nano-processing, laser processing, electromagnetic processing, superplastic processing and composite processing to complete some processing effects that are difficult to achieve with traditional technologies. Our country is still catching up in this regard. With the development of science and technology, especially the rapid development of electronic technology and information technology, more and more high and new technologies will be applied to the mechanical processing industry to help realize the upgrading of advanced processing technology.
Automation technology becomes mainstream
Developed countries have entered a transitional stage from automated processing to intelligent processing, and we need to further consolidate the achievements of automation upgrades. In China, with the development of high and new technologies such as computer technology and the popularization of automated processing equipment, the degree of automation in the machining industry has also been greatly improved, and automated processing will become the main trend.In the future, machining enterprises will use more CNC machine tools, machining centers and flexible manufacturing units, flexible manufacturing systems, and computer integrated manufacturing systems to realize flexible automation, intelligence and integration of machining. New management concepts such as just-in-time production, agile manufacturing, lean production and concurrent engineering will also be more widely recognized and applied.
Mastering core technologies and innovation capabilities
In the past 40 years, it has become a normal phenomenon for foreign companies to invest in China and for domestic companies to introduce foreign technologies. This has largely driven the domestic economic development and the prosperity of the manufacturing industry. However, simply attracting foreign capital and introducing technologies cannot help us master core technologies, let alone improve our innovation capabilities.
In the future, China's manufacturing industry must make breakthroughs in core technologies and innovation capabilities in order to form its own competitiveness.
Increase the proportion of science and technology investment
At present, China is not yet a “manufacturing” country. In our GDP, the proportion of investment in science and technology is still very low. Statistics show that in 1960, the proportion of my country's science and technology investment in GDP reached a small peak - 2.32%. Then it decreased year by year until 2000. In 1998 it was only 0.69%. Although it has rebounded after 2000, it has always remained at a few percent. In innovative developed countries and newly industrialized countries, this proportion is usually above 2%. Therefore, it is an inevitable trend for my country to further increase investment in science and technology in the future.
Cultivation of independent innovative talents
The improvement of innovation ability of machining enterprises depends on the cultivation of excellent talents. At present, the general status quo is that the technological innovation ability is poor, the product development cycle is long, and the top innovative talents are extremely limited, and the high-level talents are seriously insufficient, resulting in weak technological innovation.
In the future, the cultivation of independent innovative talents in the mechanical processing industry is a major guarantee for the development of the industry, and will be promoted to an important position.
Machinery manufacturing will become artificial intelligence. Internet plus manufacturing is an issue that all traditional manufacturing industries are currently trying to transform. A new round of technological revolution and industrial transformation will bring earth-shaking changes to the industry.
