The development trend of sheet metal industry
The sheet metal has not yet had a more complete definition, according to a definition in a foreign professional periodical, it can be defined as: Sheet metal is a kind of integrated cold processing technology for sheet metals (usually under 6mm), including shearing, punching/cutting/laminating, folding, welding, riveting, splicing, forming (such as car body). Its notable features are consistent with the 10-piece thickness.
China's status as a global sheet metal manufacturing center will be further strengthened. As China's integration into the global economic environment and the rapid rise of economic power, China has become the world's most dynamic economic region. China's economic facilities are comparatively perfect, the industry development is mature and the labor cost is lower, has become the global sheet Metal Manufacturing Center comparative advantage, the sheet metal manufacturing outward-oriented development characteristic is obvious. The strengthening of the central position is first manifested in the export of hardware products in recent years: the export growth rate of the main sheet metal products is higher than the growth rate of the output, more than the growth rate of the domestic market; The main sheet metal products blossom, not only electric tools, hand tools, building hardware products These traditional export large-scale product growth is very high, and the previous export proportion of small kitchen products and sanitary ware products 2004 years of export growth is also very obvious. The huge market and centrality of gravity will further attract the transfer of manufacturing centers of sheet metal multinationals to China.
Competition between sales channels is also increasingly fierce. Due to the oversupply of domestic sheet metal kitchen and health products, the quality pressure increases, the sales channels become one of the key competitive factors, and the competition for the channel is becoming fiercer. On the one hand, kitchen power manufacturers to strengthen the control of the retail terminals, and strive to reduce sales links, save sales costs, so that sales channels to the professionalization of the direction of development, enterprise sales model to be able to adapt to the diversified market in the direction of development. On the other hand, the trend of sales development has led to the rising status of large-scale home appliance chains, enhanced control of the industry, and the involvement and initiation of price competition previously dominated by manufacturers. With its broad market coverage, purchasing scale and cost advantages, large retailers will be increasingly able to control their production companies in terms of pricing and delivery of goods.
The polarization of enterprises will be further intensified. In the next few years will be the sheet metal industry concussion period, this high-speed concussion brings the direct result is now the sheet metal kitchen and toilet brand camp polarization trend. Sheet metal companies that are expected to survive on the market in the next few years are definitely not so many. The high speed shocks of the sheet metal industry will bring great opportunities, and the results of the shocks will make the market operation more rational.
At present, the biggest bottleneck of sheet metal enterprises is quality problem, the traditional sheet metal inspection technology is to pass the design dimension information to the process equipment and product parts on the form of mould line, model and other analog quantity. With the application of digital technology, aviation products from the design, the process began, gradually converted to the analog quantity of digital transmission, through the digital measurement equipment measured data and theoretical three-dimensional solid model compared to the analysis, the accuracy of the transmission, high efficiency, due to the reduction of a large number of tooling, model, Manufacturing costs have been significantly reduced.
The digitized design and manufacture of aviation sheet metal parts brings huge technology development space for the digital inspection Technology of sheet metal, only the digitized detection technology can truly assist the development of the digital manufacturing of sheet metal.
