Structural adjustment of textile machinery industry

The annual council is an important platform for companies to understand industry market information, discuss and develop future directions. At the meeting, Gao Yong, vice president of the China National Textile and Apparel Council, comprehensively analyzed the operation of the textile economy in 2012 and made judgments on the development trend of the industry in 2013.

According to the China Textile Industry Federation Entrepreneur Questionnaire, in the fourth quarter of 2012, China’s textile industry prosperity index was 58.61, indicating that the industry as a whole showed a warming trend. Gao Yong believes that this year’s export market has a recovery trend, but it depends on whether China’s textile and apparel international competitiveness can be maintained. With the urbanization and the growth of residents’ income, the domestic demand market will expand steadily; the price difference of cotton will continue this year, the pressure of the cotton spinning industry will not decrease, and the export of cotton products will still be affected; the industry will run smoothly, and the overall trend will be low and high.

Wang Shutian pointed out that in 2013, the focus of the textile machinery industry will still be industrial upgrading and structural adjustment. He said that although the economic operation of the textile machinery industry showed a weakening trend in 2012, the pace of structural adjustment of industrial enterprises has obviously accelerated.

Wang Shutian pointed out that the textile machinery industry should further explore how to promote technological innovation in the industry. As a large textile machinery country with a large production scale and a large variety of products in the world, domestic textile machinery enterprises cannot always follow the technical aspects of products, but strive to be the leader. To this end, China Textile Machinery Association is organizing member companies to strengthen technical cooperation and promotion among enterprises by creating innovative technology alliances in the textile machinery industry. At present, the “New Generation Textile Equipment Industry Technology Innovation Alliance” led by the Association is in the process of being promoted. Wang Shutian said that the establishment of the alliance will provide enterprises, universities and research institutes with technical cooperation and promotion platforms in line with market rules, and jointly break through the technical bottleneck of industrial development.
At the meeting, China Textile Machinery Industry Association elected Lu Honggang, vice chairman of China Textile Machinery and Equipment Industry Association, as the secretary-general of China Textile Machinery Industry Association, and Gu Ping and Chen Xingqiang as vice presidents.

Textile machinery industry

There are two types of textile machinery manufacturing: one is to manufacture the whole machine, and the other is to manufacture special spare parts (such as spindles, cradle, steel collar, wire ring, knitting needle, card clothing, heald, menstruation). Film, etc.). The special equipment for manufacturing the entire textile machine factory accounts for a small proportion of the whole plant equipment, so under certain conditions, it is possible to change the variety to produce other machinery. The proportion of factory-specific equipment and special assembly lines for manufacturing special-purpose parts is large (especially knitting needles and card clothing), and it is difficult to change varieties. In each processing type, the proportion of casters is gradually decreasing, and the proportion of cold stamping, grinding, electroplating, polishing, etc. is gradually increasing. CNC machine tools and multi-station automatic machine tools partially replace special machine tools, which enhance the adaptability and flexibility of production.

The textile machinery has strong manufacturability, complex structure and many parts. It needs to be pre-assembled or partially assembled before leaving the factory, and then subjected to production test or partial production test to ensure that the machine quality meets the requirements. The textile machinery factory has a well-equipped testing department.

There are many kinds of textile machinery parts, such as 1200-1500 kinds of double-cylinder sock machine parts, and the processing steps of parts are diverse. If a factory produces a variety of machines at the same time, it is necessary to properly arrange the production rhythm and front-to-back connection of the parts to ensure that the variety and quantity of parts required for the entire machine assembly can be provided on the assembly line as scheduled. Modern textile machinery industry adopts new management methods and methods such as computer and system engineering to manage enterprises.

The textile machinery industry is interdependent and mutually reinforcing with many other industrial sectors. For example, the steel for the production of knitting needles requires good elongation, toughness, necessary hardness, rigidity and elasticity, which requires the steel for the smelting and rolling of the metallurgical industry. The textile machinery needs motors that provide special functions in the motor industry, such as torque motors and stepping motors; high starting torque, high working time rate, textile special motors that can withstand harsh environments; DC motors with variable speed performance and variable frequency motors Wait. The electrical and electronic industry is required to provide high-quality components and more complex automatic control devices and microprocessors and microcomputers that can withstand 8000 hours of continuous operation per year. It is required that the petrochemical industry provide oil-resistant synthetic resin which is invariably deformed in lubricating grease for a long time and is superior to non-ferrous metals, and is used for manufacturing transmission parts, bearings and seals, etc., and also needs various engineering plastics and reinforced plastics with excellent performance. Wood with an increasingly scarce resource, or instead of metal to reduce weight and inertia, improve corrosion resistance, wear resistance and other properties. The rubber industry is required to provide various transmission belts, roll wrapping materials, aprons, various cushioning parts, etc., and other mechanical industries are required to provide general-purpose speed reducers, universal transmission parts, universal clutches, couplings, brakes and other mechanical parts. In addition, in order to meet the needs of aerospace technology, automotive industry, weapons industry, new technologies, new materials, new structures, such as high-precision, high-speed rolling bearings, carbon fiber reinforced plastics, micro-compressed air lines and valve parts, hydraulic torque Converters, hydraulic transmissions, and jet technology have also begun to be used in textile machinery to promote high speed and high efficiency.

After decades of development, China’s textile machinery industry has made great progress. However, compared with the world’s advanced technology, there are still some gaps and some serious problems. The overall technical level of textile machinery is low, the product development and innovation capabilities are weak, and the investment in research and development is insufficient. The technological transformation of enterprises is not enough, and the manufacturing technology is backward. The domestic basic industry is weak, and the basic supporting parts cannot keep up, which affects the quality of textile machinery products and the improvement of the level of mechatronics. The development of textile machinery products lacks organic cooperation with the process, which affects the use of textile machinery products. The policy is not matched, which affects the competitiveness of domestic textile machinery products. In response to these problems, China’s textile machinery industry has taken a series of measures to vigorously develop textile machinery infrastructure, introduce foreign textile machinery technology, differentiated development strategies, and the country’s corresponding policies to support the development of textile machinery, and achieved good results.
From 2008 to 2010, with the rapid development of the world and China’s textile industry, the greater the demand for textile machinery, the development of China’s textile machinery industry is facing a good opportunity. It is estimated that by 2010, driven by the upgrading of textile machinery, the output value of new products of China’s textile machinery industry will increase from 25% in 2005 to 50% in 2010; the export value of textile machinery products will account for more than 30% of the same period; The numerical control rate of textile machinery industry equipment will reach more than 10%, among which key key enterprises will reach 15%-20%; the key parts of major textile machinery products and the finishing process capability index of new special basic parts will reach 1-1.25. . Therefore, the development space of China’s textile machinery industry is huge.
