Plastic mold manufacturing to the two poles Development of precision heavy equipment demand

Due to the important role of molds in the manufacturing industry, the mold manufacturing industry has been receiving attention and attention from developed countries in the world. In fact, the design and manufacture of molds has become an important area of ​​manufacturing. Due to the characteristics of the mold itself, modern mold enterprises mostly reflect the characteristics of technology intensive, capital-intensive and high-quality labor intensive and high social benefits. The plastic mold manufacturing industry has become a part of the high-tech manufacturing industry. Therefore, the level of mold technology has become an important indicator to measure the manufacturing level of a country, and it is also the core competitiveness to maintain the advantages of these countries' products in the international market. "Now, China has become a big country in manufacturing and a big country in mold production. In 2010, sales will be close to 100 billion yuan (95 billion yuan in 2008), and mold imports will be nearly 2 billion US dollars, maintaining a four-year period of 2 billion US dollars. Import level; mold exports are close to 1.9 billion US dollars, which is basically the same as in 2008." Wu Bingshu, secretary general of China Die & Mould Industry Association, said.

In recent years, China's mold manufacturing level has increased significantly. The proportion of high-level molds represented by large-scale, precise, complex and long-life molds has reached more than 35%. For example, automobile cover molds can produce B-class complete vehicle molds; precision mold processing precision can reach 0.5μm; Precision progressive die can be used on high-speed punching machines of 2000~2500 times/min; the accuracy of plastic mold reaches micron level, adapting to the development of IT industry; single set of tire active mold with weight of 120T and diameter of 4m becomes the largest Type of mold and so on. “Mold manufacturing is now moving towards the extremes of big and small. The demand for precision and heavy equipment has also increased accordingly.” Wu Bingshu judges the development trend of mold and related equipment.

“Although China's mold industry has developed rapidly in the world after 20 years of rapid development, we are also clearly aware of the gap between the mold and the country, especially in the middle and high-end molds. The development of the mold industry and mold technology has attached great importance to it, especially since the reform and opening up, it has fully affirmed the important basic position of the mold industry and technology in the manufacturing industry and the national economy. The state has invested a large amount of funds to improve the manufacturing level of key molds. The major projects include C-class car body cover moulds and other projects." Wu Bingshu said.

Mold processing equipment market potential is huge

“The mold company has a considerable amount of equipment purchases in a year, and the equipment needed for mold manufacturing, especially high-end equipment, is mainly imported. In recent years, with the improvement of domestic equipment, many mold companies have chosen domestic machine tools.” The military book said.

Statistics show that in 2009, China's machine tool consumption reached 19.8 billion US dollars, more than one-third of the world's machine tool market share, accounting for 35.7% of the world's machine tool output, and imported machine tools close to 6 billion US dollars. Among them, high-speed, high-efficiency, precision, composite, flexible, green, and all-manufactured measurement unit manufacturing as the main equipment is still the procurement direction of China's mold industry technology upgrade, heavy load in mold processing, large program quantity, square worktable structure design and The detection and control technology, the high programming resolution of the CNC system, and the high-speed servo control software and hardware environment are the key to ensuring the manufacture of precision molds. Ultra-precision mirror milling machines, nano-scale turning and milling centers, and ultra-precision CNC lathes have also been used in mold making.

When referring to the current situation of China's mold processing equipment market, Wu Bingshu introduced that Japan, Europe and the United States high-end mold processing and manufacturing equipment, measuring equipment has a monopoly position, the reason is of course inseparable from the quality of their products, but also with them Relevant to the strategy of the Chinese mold market. Their demand for the mold market is an active service. They cooperate with mold users to develop mold-specific functions for machine tools and tailor-made functions. Korean machine tools and machine tools in Taiwan have a good price/performance ratio in mid-range models, so they also occupy a certain market share. In terms of mold processing, since some of the materials used in the mold are super-hard materials, the mold manufacturing requires high tool requirements, and the tool is required to cut materials of more than HRC60. Wu Bingshu said that for high-precision, high-efficiency, high-reliability modern tools, such as hard alloys and ceramics, the consumption of indexable tools is about 1.2 billion yuan, of which 80% to 85% are imported. More than 90% of the tools used in mold making work. High-precision cutting tools for five-sided machining and complex motion are still the main procurement targets for the mold industry with overseas products.
