Manufacturing powerhouse CNC machine tools and high-efficiency tools coordinate with each other
According to statistics published by multinational groups, the annual cutting cost of the global manufacturing industry reaches more than 400 billion US dollars, of which the tool cost is about 20 billion US dollars. In recent years, the manufacturing industry in developed countries has adopted a large number of modern high-efficiency cutting tools to improve labor productivity, saving the manufacturing industry up to 100 billion US dollars each year, which is far higher than the investment in tools. Therefore, all countries regard the development of modern high-efficiency tools as an important means to improve the competitiveness of the manufacturing industry. The concept that 'cutting tools are productivity, not consumables' in the process of processing, has formed a consensus in developed countries, and the proportion of cutting tool consumption in manufacturing costs reaches 3% to 4%. In China's manufacturing industry, most enterprises still rely on cheap labor as the main means to reduce costs, and pay less attention to saving costs by improving processing methods and improving efficiency. Therefore, the consumption level of cutting tools in China's manufacturing industry is generally low, accounting for only 1 of the manufacturing cost. % to 2%. Cutting tools and machine tools are two subsystems of the manufacturing technology system. They develop independently and complement each other, constantly promoting the improvement of labor productivity in the manufacturing industry. At present, with the vigorous development of modern digital manufacturing technology, modern high-efficiency cutting tools characterized by 'high precision, high efficiency, high reliability and specialization' quickly replace traditional standard tools as the final execution component of the digital manufacturing system. In the processing, it plays a key role of 'one step at the door'. Although its price is much higher than traditional standard knives. However, due to its excellent performance, the processing quality and efficiency are greatly improved, so that the manufacturing industry can improve labor productivity and reduce costs, and obtain greater benefits. Another fact worthy of attention is that in Germany, the United States, Japan and other manufacturing powerhouses, the law of coordinated and balanced development of modern CNC machine tools and high-efficiency tools is very obvious. The purpose is to provide the manufacturing industry with an optimal configuration to fully utilize the potential of equipment and solutions. In developed countries, in normal years of stable economic development, the annual tool consumption scale is generally stable at about 1/2 of machine tool consumption. For example, when the annual consumption of machine tools is 6 billion US dollars, the tool consumption is generally around 3 billion US dollars. Only in recession years does this ratio change due to a contraction in the size of investment. However, the regularity of the coordinated development of machine tools in developed countries has not appeared in China. Especially in the past 10 years, the consumption of machine tools has taken the lead in the development of China's manufacturing industry, and the consumption of cutting tools has been left behind. This strange phenomenon has become a feature of the development of China's machine tool industry. Such as: In 2010, China's machine tool consumption reached a record level of 28.5 billion US dollars. In the same year, tool consumption was US$5 billion, and tool consumption was only 18% of machine tool consumption. Much lower than the level of about 50% in developed countries.
