Development trend of high-speed machine tool processing industry

Since 2002, China has become the world’s largest machine tool consumer. In 2010, the total consumption of machine tools in the world’s 28 major machine tool manufacturers was US$59.89 billion, and China’s consumption accounted for 45.6%. Due to the quality and intrinsic performance of domestic machine tools, The demand of users is still in the low-end melee, the disadvantage of high-end failure, leading to a sharp increase in machine tool imports in recent years. In the first half of 2011, China’s metal cutting cnc machine tool imports were US$5.01 billion, an increase of 58.3% year-on-year. Occupied by western developed countries.
In the past ten years, the development of the machine tool industry has relied more on the continued strong domestic market demand, the relatively cheap labor cost advantage, and the strong support of the national industrial policy. The enterprises have relied on policy-based natural growth; in comparison, technological progress And the role of management upgrades is relatively limited.
At present, from the perspective of machine tool structure and overall parameters, the high-end CNC machine tools of Chinese and foreign enterprises are not much different, and the homogenization competition is fierce.
Chinese machine tools pay special attention to the advancement and high quality of cutting tools and grinding wheels, so that the machine tools can fully exert their performance and efficiency.
In the design of the main machine, the technology is exquisite, the structure changes a lot, the various machine tool series are complete, the variety of metal cutting machine tools and forming machine tools is more than 3000, especially the variety of gear machine tools and tool grinding machines are more complete. Parts, tools, NC systems and other advanced performance, and there are a number of world-renowned brand-name enterprises and brand-name products. For example, the production of hydraulic parts is complete in variety, series, and specifications. In the late 1980s, many countries and manufacturers introduced Chinese products and cooperated, and Chinese machine tools are world-renowned.
Affected by national conditions, the demand for ordinary machine tools and economical numerical control will exist for a long time, but the product life cycle will gradually enter the decline period. During the 12th Five-Year Plan period, the machine tool industry proposed that the development of mid-to-high-end CNC machine tools is the main point of work. There is no doubt that the transformation of enterprises, getting rid of the development model based on scale expansion, and focusing on the development of high-end CNC machine tools will be the main direction of the company’s future.
The market competition of middle and high-end machine tools has developed into a comprehensive competition between product technology level and enterprise management capability. Ordinary machine tools have become maintenance tools in industrialized countries such as Europe, America and Japan, and their applications have gradually changed from industrialized production to rough machining and repair of workshop parts; economical CNC machine tools are unique to China and are upgraded products of ordinary machine tools. Market capacity limited.
