China's Casting HistoryChina's Casting History

Casting is one of the basic processes of the modern machinery manufacturing industry, so the development of the casting industry marks a country’s production strength. China has now become one of the world’s major foundry machinery, has made great achievements in the foundry machinery manufacturing industry in recent years.

During the “Eighth Five-Year Plan” period, foundry machinery manufacturing was highly valued by the former Ministry of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering. It invested the largest special technical reform loan and research expenses since the founding of the People’s Republic of China, and supported the development and development of products in the foundry machinery industry. “Manufacturing of large-scale shot blasting machine”, “vertical parting boxless injection molding machine”, “development of water glass sand old sand recycling equipment”, “metal mold casting equipment” and so on have been developed and applied.

During the “Ninth Five-Year Plan” period, the foundry machinery industry undertook and established the task of “refining and efficient modeling and cleaning of car casting blanks” In 1999, the success of the national high-level air punching molding line project was completed.

During the “Tenth Five-Year Plan” period, the average annual growth rate of the major economic indicators of the foundry machinery industry is above 30%, which is higher than the average growth rate of the machine tool industry, especially the profit growth is faster, and the average annual profit growth is as high as 46%, while maintaining Higher market sales level. In addition, the complete set of resin sand casting equipment can basically meet the needs of the domestic market, changing the situation in the past that mainly relied on imports; it has been able to produce a higher level of automatic casting production line, reaching a level that can partially replace imports, and partially solves the car engine Cylinder blocks, cylinder heads and other casting blanks must also be imported; high-level automatic core making machines, automatic casting cleaning machines, automatic sand machining machines, large automatic die casting machines and precision casting equipment and other casting machinery can basically be manufactured in China . It should be said that the product level of the foundry machinery industry has greatly improved during the “Tenth Five-Year Plan” period, which laid a good foundation for the further development of the foundry machinery industry in China.

During the “Eleventh Five-Year Plan” period, the casting industry will continue to maintain a relatively high growth rate under the stimulation of huge market demand. Since the technical level of casting machinery products is still far from the market demand, there is huge development potential and room for expansion in the development of the industry, which brings opportunities for the rapid growth of the casting machinery industry.
