More than 30 years of reform and opening up, China's mold industry has undergone enormous changes. This change is mainly reflected in three aspects: changes in production capacity, changes in production methods, technological revolution. Most people see the Chinese mold industry as an industry from scratch, from small to large, from missing to fill the main force, as well as the rapid growth of mold demand and production changes. But more important are the changes in the mode of production and the technological revolution. The latter two changes are a more profound and more fundamental change. The transformation of production mode is mainly reflected in the transformation from the traditional small and complete rear workshop and the workshop-style production into the large-scale production mode of highly specialized market collaboration; from non-standard production to relative standardization and quasi-standardized production. Mold production technology revolution, concentrated to the point that enterprise information is digital manufacturing and information management.
China's mold industry: changes in production capacity, changes in production methods, technological revolution
Before the 1980s, many molds were manually ground by fitters. In the 1990s, due to the introduction of more advanced CNC machine tools, edm and other advanced equipment, greatly improving the level of the production process of the mold, the production cycle and mold quality has also been greatly shortened and improved. High-precision machining has liberated workers from heavy physical labor. On the other hand, CAD / CAM / CAE and other computer-aided technology has also been widely used in the mold industry, mold design and CNC machining has greatly improved the level of cad / cam / cae software for mold technicians work efficiency And the reliability of the design has been greatly improved. At present, each mold enterprise is facing a new topic. How to liberate the enterprise management from the cumbersome affairs, and make the information management contribute to the improvement of production efficiency of enterprises. Therefore, the mold business management information has become the mold industry development and progress of the inevitable trend.
Mold production is a single-order production, in the management of information has its own strong specificity. Design is part of manufacturing, process design is not enough, design and process information can be directly reused little value. Therefore, according to the characteristics of the production of enterprises to grasp a comprehensive management and practical information management, simplification of management balance is the key to information technology. This makes it hard to copy mature management software. For example, auto mold business does not have the traditional sense of raw materials, warehouse management and so on. The purchased parts and components are semi-finished products, there is no warehousing process, the cost of manufacturing amortization is not the same for each business. Another example is the cost accounting should adopt the project management approach, rather than the general approach to the manufacturing industry, what pdm, erp and other software without thorough transformation is completely unsuited.
On the level of China's mold industry, the mold industry development plan put forward the goal is to enter the ranks of the advanced level in Asia by 2010. In terms of quantity, we are now the world's largest producer of molds. From the product level, for the b-level and below grade cars and other passenger cars and commercial vehicles, such as supporting a full set of automotive molds for the electronics industry supporting the accuracy of 2um, life expectancy of 200 million times more than precision high-speed multi-station Progressive mold, a single set of molds weighing over 100 tons of giant molds, up to 6 meters large multi-station progressive die, light guide plate molds, CD-ROM molds, biochip molds and many other high-level mold have been able to produce. However, the vast territory of China, many mold enterprises around the level of different, a great gap between each other, from an integrated level, compared with the international advanced level, there are still many gaps to urge us to further efforts, the gap to promote our progressive! Mold world power forward continuously, will still be our goal for a long time.
Few existing metalworking branches can be as dynamic as mold making, so constant search for the latest in technology and innovation is an integral part of any mold shop's leadership. 【Suzhou mold design】
