The modernization of China's industry, especially the modernization of the manufacturing industry, requires the equipment manufacturing industry to provide advanced manufacturing means. CNC machine tools are the "machine tools" for processing various kinds of equipment and the basic equipment for realizing the modernization of manufacturing technology and equipment. Their performance, quality and ownership have become an important symbol for measuring a country's industrialization level and comprehensive national strength.

In 2009, affected by the world financial crisis, the production of machine tools in the world generally contracted, and the output value dropped significantly. China has formulated and issued a series of measures to expand domestic demand, adjust the structure and maintain growth. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and relevant departments have organized and implemented a number of major scientific and technological projects and technological transformation projects in accordance with the Plan for the Adjustment and Revitalization of the Equipment Manufacturing Industry, the Major Implementation Plan for Science and Technology of "High grade CNC Machine Tools and Basic Manufacturing Equipment" and relevant industrial policies, so as to maintain the continuous growth of the machine tool industry, The total industrial output value increased by 16.1% year on year. In 2009, China's machine tool output value and consumption reached US $15.3 billion and US $19.7 billion respectively, ranking first in the world. The implementation of various policies and measures has promoted the rapid development of domestic high-end CNC machine tools and their supporting products, optimized the market demand structure, made great progress in enterprise merger and reorganization, and significantly enhanced the independent innovation ability of key enterprises.

A series of independent innovation achievements stand out

Through technological innovation and the launch of a number of new products, major enterprises have made great progress in product restructuring. In order to adapt to the changes in market demand since the financial crisis, many enterprises have reduced the production of low-end and ordinary products, accelerated the upgrading of economic CNC machine tools, and focused on the development of high-end CNC machine tools and production lines. In 2009, the numerical control rate of machine tool output value of key enterprises in the industry reached more than 50%, with a year-on-year increase of 5%.

The independent innovation of high-end CNC machine tools has achieved remarkable results. The industrialization process of independent innovation achievements has been accelerated. The enterprise has developed a number of high-speed, precision, compound, multi axis linkage CNC machine tools, as well as a number of new products of large specifications and large tonnage CNC machine tools. These new products have basically met the needs of users of national key projects for processing and production, and played a key role in the national economic construction and the development of national defense and military industry. In terms of research and development of heavy and super heavy CNC machine tools, a batch of international advanced high-end CNC machine tools, such as heavy gantry five axis linkage compound machine tools, super heavy CNC horizontal boring lathes, five axis linkage blade machining machines, CNC heavy crankshaft milling and turning compound machining machines, and large CNC stamping production lines, have been successfully developed, meeting the key processing needs of aerospace, power generation equipment, automobiles and other key fields for oversized parts; High speed/precision CNC lathes, machining centers and other products are widely used in automobile, aerospace, electronics, military and other industries, and have driven many small and medium-sized enterprises to upgrade their equipment and industries. At the same time, the development of mainframe drives the development of its supporting CNC system, servo drive/motor, various functional parts and other industries, extends the industrial chain, and drives the development of upstream and downstream industries and local economies.

Behind every international economic crisis are great development opportunities and challenges. Enterprises in the CNC machine tool industry seized the rare opportunity of international economic restructuring, clarified the main direction of attack, and accelerated structural adjustment and industrial upgrading. By improving the consciousness and initiative of the whole industry to change the mode of economic development, promoting change in adjustment and seeking development in change, China has accelerated the process of moving from a large machine tool manufacturing country to a powerful machine tool manufacturing country.
