The Development Of Mold
According to the “Basic Situation of National Mould Professional Factory” compiled by the China Mould Industry Association Management Committee, China’s mould industry is growing at an average rate of more than 15%, which is more than double the average value-added of domestic GDP. Among them, casting molds account for about 5% of the total output value of various molds, and the annual growth rate is as high as 25%, and the development is very active.
The development of China’s mold industry has given strong support to the manufacturing industry. At the same time, the development of the manufacturing industry has also promoted the development of the mold industry. China has also become a major country in mold production. The number of domestic mold manufacturers has increased to more than 20,000, with approximately 1 million employees, and the annual output value of molds has reached 55 billion yuan. However, China’s mold and machine tool industry is still “big but not strong.” Although China’s mold industry is currently known as the global “manufacturing country” with its huge annual import and export volume, due to the constraints of technical personnel and other factors, it is relatively concentrated in the low-end field. Therefore, the high-end market is economically important for domestic mold companies. The allure is undoubtedly great.
A trade association is an economic organization established by related enterprises for their own development. Under the conditions of a market economy, as an important intermediate organization, industry associations have the function of coordinating the interests of market entities and improving the efficiency of market allocation. Therefore, promoting the construction of industry associations has become an issue that cannot be ignored. For the mold industry to achieve substantial development, it is essential to promote the construction of the mold industry association.
Some high-level molds account for about 40%. These molds are characterized by complexity, precision, large size, and long life. For example, the weight of a single set of some molds can reach 125t? Some precision multi-station progressive molds have a life of 300 million strokes and an accuracy of 0.001mm. With the continuous increase in precision requirements of the mold parts industry and the advancement of science and technology, some The machining accuracy of the parts will reach less than lμm. The innovation and research and development capabilities of enterprises have been improved, and new technologies and new processes have been widely promoted. For example, mold self-processing technology and mold flexibility and integration technology? Mold structure design system, large-scale progressive die, advanced mold manufacturing technology and three-dimensional design technology research and development? Stamping process design system, reverse engineering and digital manufacturing system for body molds, etc. These are inseparable from the vigorous development and promotion of digital and information technology.
The Increase Of Mold Industry
According to statistics, in the first half of 2013, the output of molds in Hubei Province was 16,388 sets, a growth rate of 3.43%; among them, 4181 sets of molds were produced in June, with a growth rate of 78.6% in June. From January to June 2013, Guangxi’s mold output was 34,344 sets, with a growth rate of 6.09% from January to June. In the first half of 2013, Chongqing’s mold output was 7,365 sets, a growth rate of 1.43%. In the first half of 2013, Sichuan’s mold output was 921,682 sets, with a growth rate of 660.94% from January to June.
The Development Problem Of Mold Industry
China’s mold industry continues to develop, but at the same time there are many problems that need to be resolved. China’s mold industry has been busy with expansion, ignoring market research and understanding customer needs, resulting in high-end molds becoming a shortcoming of China’s mold industry. Most of the high-end molds required by the Chinese market rely on imports, while a large number of domestic mold products are out of stock There is no way and a lot of squeezing, which has caused a serious supply and demand misalignment.
