With the steady growth of my country’s economy, sheet metal-related products and processing industries are also continuing to develop. However, most of the sheet metal processing at this stage is still labor-intensive industries. The flow of technical posts and personal professional skills have an impact on product quality. Stability has a big impact. For example, different welders have obvious differences in the length and height of the weld seam, the distance between the weld seams, and the welding speed, causing welding problems such as false welds, missing welds, weld penetration, and weld bead. Therefore, the quality of the final product cannot be effectively controlled, the production rework rate is high, the energy consumption is increased, and the profit is reduced, which directly hinders the stable development of the enterprise. This article takes everyone to analyze the development trend of the sheet metal processing industry.
Hundreds of sheet metal industry manufacturers in our country are in full bloom. With the impact of the slowdown in domestic economic growth, the sheet metal manufacturing industry as a whole has encountered a “price war Waterloo”. Equipment, management, and the market have “fallen” to varying degrees, resulting in lower prices and lower benefits. Parts processing companies in some regions There has been a shutdown and rotation phenomenon.
In terms of equipment: the company’s revenue has decreased, and the investment in advanced processing equipment and inspection equipment is obviously insufficient. As a result, the gap with international advanced enterprises has become larger and larger, and it is difficult to make qualitative changes in a short period of time.
Management: In terms of information technology such as material flow, logistics, and process flow, there are still difficulties in information expression, quantification, and extraction, as well as irregular forms and information islands, which are not conducive to the rapid response of the management.
On the market side: most of the factory sheet metal processing is only for the purpose of product delivery, without forming a good reputation and awareness of maintaining their own brands, conducting in-depth exploration and accumulation in major areas, and manufacturing their own products to directly face the market. Operational thinking needs to be changed to get through the design, R&D, and manufacturing links to achieve large-scale, batch, and even individualized production.
Under the current situation, many companies may have thought of reforms, increasing investment in advanced equipment, expanding the introduction of excellent talents, and there are also some famous companies that have seen successful reforms. However, on the road to change, the pain points of the internal management of the enterprise will prevent it from developing to a higher level. Serious situations will directly lead to the failure of the enterprise reform, and all the investment will be lost. To this end, I am willing to discuss the welding automation issues on the road to reform with colleagues who are preparing to develop automated sheet metal processing.
