As an important component in the industrial system, spring has a large amount of use, and a variety of types, so the production of spring from the original manual production, gradually to automation. Ninety years ago in China, there were only a few specialized spring machinery and equipment in the spring industry.
With the increasing spring market, more and more professional spring equipment enterprises have entered China. For example, Taiwan’s northeast spring machinery (EN qiaoding) and Guanghong (KHm) have gradually occupied the mainstream spring production market. Is the use of proprietary mechanical mechanisms, convenient and rapid production of various springs, special-shaped elastic components.
Guanghong’s equipment is a high-speed equipment for producing compression spring and tension spring. There are also many professional spring equipment manufacturers abroad, such as WAFIOS, mec (now Orii & MEC), etc. Domestic production of large spring CNC hot coiler is still blank. Although spring industry is a small industry in the whole manufacturing industry, its role can not be underestimated. The expansion of spring production and marketing scale, the increase of varieties and the improvement of quality level are also the needs of mechanical equipment upgrading and the improvement of supporting host performance.
Therefore, for the development of the whole country’s industry, spring products have played an important role. Since the reform and opening up, with the economic globalization and the establishment of China’s status as a manufacturing power, the demand for springs has increased sharply. In addition, the investment in spring production is not high, the technical threshold is low, and the investment recovery is fast. Since the 1980s, the number of spring production enterprises has increased rapidly.
By the end of 2010, there were 724 Enterprises above Designated Size in spring manufacturing industry in China, with more than 100000 employees. In 2010, the sales revenue exceeded 30 billion yuan and the total profit exceeded 1.6 billion yuan. As a highly competitive product, the domestic enterprises of low-end products have a cost advantage and a certain competitiveness in price in the market. Foreign capital and joint venture technology have advantages in high-end products.
For example, elastic stents for the treatment of cardiovascular diseases are almost monopolized by foreign medical giants, and domestic enterprises have nothing to do. Automobile spring is the most heated field for domestic and foreign enterprises to compete in the market. Spring industry has gradually entered into the industry chain competition from the price war and service competition in the past, and the industrial chain is completed by means of standardization.
Although the industry’s standard system is relatively perfect, due to the early formulation, the market demand has a considerable distance, especially compared with Japan, Europe, the United States and other developed countries, the current national standards and industry standards are still low, resulting in domestic spring products in the international market competitiveness is not strong, therefore, as soon as possible to introduce new industry standards in line with international standards is the industry needs The first problem to be solved.
During the 12th Five Year Plan period, China’s automobile, railway, instrumentation and other industries will maintain rapid and stable development thanks to the relevant national policy stimulus and the revitalization plan of related industries. In addition, some emerging industries, such as conventional weapons, nuclear power and aircraft manufacturing, can not lack the participation of spring. With China’s growing national strength and increasing investment in national defense science and technology, this is also an important aspect of business opportunities in the spring industry.
Under the background of good external environment and stable growth of downstream demand, China’s spring industry will maintain rapid and stable development. It is estimated that by the end of the 12th Five Year Plan, that is, in 2015, the sales volume of spring industry in China is expected to reach 60 billion yuan.
