The modernization of China's industry, especially the modernization of manufacturing, requires the equipment manufacturing industry to provide advanced manufacturing methods. CNC machine tools are the "working machine" for processing all kinds of equipment. They are the basic equipment for realizing the modernization of manufacturing technology and equipment. Their performance, quality and possession have become an important symbol for measuring the industrialization level and comprehensive national strength of a country.
In 2009, affected by the global financial crisis, machine tool production in the world generally contracted and the output value dropped sharply. China has formulated a series of measures to expand domestic demand, adjust structure, and maintain growth. The Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and relevant departments have made major scientific and technological projects based on the "equipment adjustment and revitalization plan for equipment manufacturing" and "high-end CNC machine tools and basic manufacturing equipment". "Implementation Plan" and related industrial policies, organized and implemented a number of major science and technology projects and technological transformation projects, so that the machine tool industry continued to grow, and the total industrial output value increased by 16.1%. In 2009, China's machine tool output and consumption reached 15.3 billion US dollars and 19.7 billion US dollars, respectively, ranking first in the world. Through the implementation of various policies and measures, the rapid development of domestic high-end CNC machine tools and their ancillary products has been promoted, the market demand structure has been optimized, and the merger and reorganization of enterprises has made great progress, and the independent innovation capability of key enterprises has been significantly enhanced.
A series of independent innovations stand out
Through technological innovation and the launch of a number of new products, major enterprises have made great progress in product structure adjustment. In order to adapt to changes in market demand since the financial crisis, many companies have reduced the production of low-end, common products, accelerated the pace of upgrading of economical 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%, an increase of 5% year-on-year.
The independent innovation achievements of high-end CNC machine tools are remarkable. The industrialization process of independent innovation achievements has accelerated. The company has developed a number of high-speed, precision, composite, multi-axis linkage CNC machine tools, as well as a number of large-size, large-tonnage CNC machine tools. These new products basically meet the needs of national key engineering users. Need to play a key role in the national economic construction and the development of national defense and military industry. In the research and development of heavy-duty and super-heavy CNC machine tools, heavy-duty gantry five-axis linkage composite machine tools, super-heavy-duty CNC horizontal boring lathes, five-axis linkage blade processing machines, CNC heavy-duty crankshaft milling and lathes combined machining machines, large-scale CNC stamping production lines, etc. The advanced level of high-grade CNC machine tools has been successfully developed to meet the key processing needs of aerospace, power generation equipment, automobiles and other key areas for large parts; high-speed/precision CNC lathes, machining centers and other products are widely used in automotive, aerospace, electronics, Military industry and other industry sectors, and led a number of small and medium-sized enterprise equipment renovation and industrial upgrading. At the same time, the development of the mainframe has driven the development of its supporting CNC system, servo drive/motor, various functional components and other industries, extending the industrial chain and stimulating the development of upstream and downstream industries and local economy.
Behind every international economic crisis, there are major development opportunities and challenges. The CNC machine tool industry enterprises seized the rare opportunity of international economic restructuring, clarified the main direction, and accelerated structural adjustment and industrial upgrading. Through the whole industry to improve the consciousness and initiative of transforming the economic development mode, promote transformation in adjustment, and seek development in transformation, thus accelerating China's progress from machine tool manufacturing to machine tool manufacturing.
