China has become the world ’s largest market for cutting tools, and many multinational cutting tool groups are also in the development strategy of the post-crisis era. Without exception, they have expanded the sales of cutting tools in China as their first choice. The companies ’Asia-Pacific headquarters and R & D centers , Training centers, logistics centers, etc. have settled in China one by one, thereby radiating Asia with China as the center, serving customers more directly and conveniently, and better meeting the special needs of customers in the Asia-Pacific region. Luo Baihui, Secretary General of the International Mold, Metal & Plastic Industry Suppliers Association, believes that the main reason why the Chinese market is so important is that China ’s market share in its global market share is increasing.
At present, Chinese knife companies have occupied half of the market through continuous learning and strategic planning. However, the company still highlights several fatal problems in the development process. If it is not paid enough attention and is not handled properly, it will seriously affect the company. Development and progress.
At this stage, alloy tools have dominated tool types in developed countries, with a proportion as high as 70%. High-speed steel tools are shrinking at a rate of 1% to 2% per year, and the proportion has now fallen below 30%.
At the same time, cemented carbide cutting tools have become the main tools required by processing enterprises in China, and are widely used in heavy industry fields such as automobile and parts production, mold manufacturing, aerospace, etc. In the production of high-speed steel knives and some low-grade standard knives, the market saturation and the needs of enterprises were not taken into account at all, and the high-end and high-tech medium-to-high-end tool market was eventually "given" to foreign companies.
According to data, the current annual sales of cutting tools in China is about 14.5 billion yuan, of which the proportion of carbide tools is less than 25%, but the carbide tools required by the domestic manufacturing industry have accounted for more than 50% of the tools. This kind of blind production has seriously failed to meet the growing demand for carbide tools in the domestic manufacturing industry, thus forming a vacuum state in the high-end market and eventually being occupied by foreign companies.
4 Of the 16,500 tons of cemented carbide produced in China, 4,500 tons are used in the production of cutting tools, and the number is equivalent to that of Japan. However, the value of the tool after making it is only 800 million US dollars, which is far less than Japan's 2.5 billion US dollars, which fully shows that the overall production level of high-efficiency carbide tools in China still has a considerable gap with foreign countries. Therefore, under the premise that domestic companies cannot meet market demand, the demand for manufacturing has to rely on a large number of imports to solve.
The annual growth rate of sales of major foreign companies in China's mid-to-high-end tool market has reached 30%, which has exceeded the average annual growth rate of domestic tools.
On the 150th anniversary of the establishment of the Sandvik Group, in order to celebrate this grand ceremony and continue to inherit Sandvik's century-old experience in personnel training, Sandvik Coromant, the world's No. 1 cutting tool brand under the name " The theme of “Witnesses and Welcomes the Future” was invited from 150 universities or colleges in 9 cities across the country to participate in their cutting summer camp activities in Guangzhou, Shanghai, Beijing, and Wuhan. Encourage young students to join the machining industry and lay a solid foundation for promoting the transformation and upgrading of China's manufacturing industry.
During the summer camps in Guangzhou, Shanghai and Beijing, nearly 120 teachers and students from 18 colleges including Guangzhou Mechanical and Electrical Technician College, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics visited modern machining workshops and key universities The laboratory, and listened to the lectures of the engineers in yellow clothes on the application of cutting tool technology, carefully watched the live demo of modern milling art parts processing, participated in the assembly and disassembly competition of typical cemented carbide tools, and experienced the global leader in close range Machining technology.
