Machine tool industry continues to pick up

In the Chinese government supply side of the structural reform and real estate, automotive and other industries to grow in the environment, the machine tool industry is "back to life."

According to media reports, during the 15th China International Machine Tool Exhibition (CIMT2017), the reporter visited a number of domestic and foreign machine tool exhibitors, they generally reflect the real feeling of the market to pick up the temperature, especially for the automotive market to provide processing programs Of the manufacturers, new orders are more impressive. Through the feedback from the exhibitors, the machine tool industry in the past few years after a long "winter", it seems ushered in the development opportunity, which the whole machine tool market is undoubtedly a good sign.

In recent years, China's machine tool industry has been struggling in the development of difficulties, orders for several months of negative growth is commonplace. It is understood that in 2016, some domestic machine tool enterprises due to stand up to "winter" collapse of the enterprise is not unusual. In this regard, many people on the development of China's machine tool industry seems to have lost hope.

In the machine industry downturn, the end of 2016, the Ministry of Industry issued the "thirteen five" "intelligent manufacturing development plan 2016 - 2020" clear, promote intelligent manufacturing implementation of the "two-step" strategy: the first step, by 2020, Intelligent manufacturing development base and support capacity was significantly enhanced, the traditional manufacturing key areas of the basic realization of digital manufacturing, conditional, based on the key industries have made significant progress in intelligent transformation; the second step, by 2025, intelligent manufacturing support system is basically established, Industry to achieve the initial smart transformation.

The industry planning for the downturn in the machine tool industry has injected a "tonic."

In fact, the machine tool industry to pick up another reason to benefit from the real estate and automotive growth in areas such as. Data released from the relevant departments show that from the first two months of 2017, China's real estate development investment grew 8.0%, the car market in January and February's performance is also good, 2017 two months before the rapid growth of automobile production and sales in February domestic Automobile production 215.96 million, an increase of 33.77%.

Increased orders

South China Institute of Intelligent Innovation Zeng Haiwei said that the machine tool market to return to the industrial structure due to the adjustment and upgrading. At present, our government is embarking on the structural reform of the supply side. The machine tool industry, in order to meet the market demand, starts from the supply side and provides the products and services to meet the new demands of science. Such as automation packages, customized customization and shift upgrades have become the main direction of the market.

The machine tool industry to pick up the same time, enterprises have frequently ushered in the domestic and international orders. According to reports, Shenyang Machine Tool Group independent research and development of i5 intelligent machine tools in the automotive shaft and other industries to demonstrate the application, and now has signed 18,000 orders, shipments reached 8400 units. Dalian Machine Tool Group to be outdone, its construction in Dongguan City, the first 3C industry unmanned intelligent manufacturing plant basically completed, all using domestic machine intelligent production line is waiting for the arrival of the first batch of products.

It is understood that Hubei Li Di Machine Tool Co., Ltd. in the first quarter of this year has completed 160 million yuan of orders, its products are sold to the United States, Southeast Asia and other countries. And Guangzhou City Express Precision Machinery Co., Ltd. shipments shipments per month shipments are also up to dozens of times.

In the excellent financial research institute macroeconomic research researcher Wang Jiankun view, machine tool business order gradually recovered, in fact, starting from the fourth quarter of 2016, the industry has developed a trend to stabilize the current situation.

According to the China Machine Tool Industry Association Information Statistics Department to provide data show that in 2016 China's total machine tool consumption of about 27.5 billion US dollars, flat year on year. Among them, the metal cutting machine tool consumption of about 16.4 billion US dollars, down to 4.1%. Metal forming machine tool consumption of about 11.1 billion US dollars, an increase of 6.7%.

It is not difficult to see from the above data can be seen, the machine tool industry from 2016 has been showing signs of warming. Wang Jiankun said that the economic cycle level, China has 3 to 5 years a round of the stock business cycle, there are across the entire reform and opening up the Kangbo cycle, the machine tool industry is part of our stock cycle and Kang Bo cycle under the influence of supply side reform common Superimposed generation.

So, the next period of time, the industry can be strong to warm up? Wang Jiankun that the supply side of the reform match the Kangbo cycle only for high-end products. In other words, the future for a long time, high-end machine tool market or sustained prosperity, low-end machine pick up may be just "short-lived." Warmer to the entire machine tool industry relieved, but the industry understand that the machine in order to achieve "gorgeous turn", but not a day of power.

High-end machine machine opportunities

So, China's high-end machine tool industry is how the development of the status quo? South China Institute of Intelligent Innovation Zeng Haiwei said that China's machine tool industry started relatively late, is still in the development stage, high-end machine tool market occupied by Europe and the United States Japan and South Korea, Machine tool business, there is a huge business opportunities.

It is reported that Shenyang Group Intelligent Machine Tool i5 occupy half of the group, its production workshop CNC machine tool production is also rising.

Not long ago, China's production of high-end CNC machine tools have been used for missile engines, materials, such as forming the field of precision manufacturing. Aerospace Science and Technology official said that the current domestic high-end CNC machining equipment, such as the accuracy of key indicators gradually reached the international advanced level, while the cost of equipment to maintain a 30% to 50% of the great advantage.

It is worth mentioning that, as China's economic slowdown continues to slow down and structural adjustment of the deepening of China's machine tool market has also undergone a significant change in its total demand significantly reduced demand structure to accelerate the upgrading of the market characteristics In fact, more and more obvious.

"Machine tool market structure upgrade, the performance of automated demand for the rapid growth." Wang said, "on the one hand, small, personalized, customization needs have increased significantly. General product performance, reliability, Large; on the other hand, the development trend of CNC machine tools in the efficient, sophisticated, composite on the basis of the intelligent and green put forward higher requirements.

Zeng Haiwei said, high-end CNC machine tool market will gradually become China's manufacturing enterprises, "meat and potatoes." With the rise of China's manufacturing industry, machine demand is driven to promote the technological progress of domestic machine tools, high-end machine tools personalized, digital, intelligent development trend.

Analysis of the industry, which means that the high-speed machine tool industry, the pace of rapid development has come.
