Industry experts said that behind the construction of behemoths, there are small fasteners. Although they are only small participants, they have an impact. Because of the importance of connection, consumers have an extra favor for the brand in purchasing.
"Fasteners are also called standard parts in the market. It is a general term for a type of mechanical parts used when two or more parts (or components) are fastened into a whole. It is used in various Machinery, equipment, vehicles, ships, railways, bridges, buildings, structures, tools, molds, instruments, meters and supplies, etc.” Luo Baihui, secretary-general of the International Model Association, said that with the development of my country’s manufacturing industry, fasteners have become a major part of my country’s One of the products with a large import and export volume, the realization of international standards has practical and strategic significance for promoting Chinese fastener companies to go global and promoting fastener companies to fully participate in international cooperation and competition. Due to the specifications, dimensions, tolerances, weight, performance, surface conditions, marking methods, and specific requirements for acceptance inspection, marking, and packaging of each specific fastener product, they are stipulated in several national (industry) standards. , such as Imperial, German and American.
The machinery industry is one of the main users of fasteners. Due to China's late recognition of the status of mechanical basic parts in the machinery industry and long-term lack of investment, the entire industry has a poor foundation, weak foundation, and weak strength. Especially with the improvement of the level of China's main engine, the bottleneck phenomenon that the mechanical basic parts lag behind the main engine has become increasingly apparent. In recent years, although the state has given some support in terms of technology introduction, technological transformation, scientific research and development, etc., there is still a big gap compared with the current market demand and foreign levels, specifically manifested in: fewer product varieties and lower levels , unstable quality, high early failure rate, and poor reliability.
Fasteners are the main basic products of the machinery industry, and the development of the machinery industry also puts forward requirements for fastener products. Luo Baihui believes that the current domestic common standard fasteners have been in oversupply, while the supply of high-end fasteners (high temperature, special-shaped, titanium-plastic composite, special performance fasteners, etc.) is in short supply, and we still have to rely on imports. The National Bureau of Machinery listed "ordinary standard fasteners" as restricted products, and "special-shaped fasteners" as currently encouraged products. With the improvement of the country's industrialization level and technological progress, the use of fasteners has gradually increased.
It is understood that during the 12th Five-Year Plan period, the number of construction machinery products such as loaders, excavators, and road rollers will reach 6 million units, and the annual sales volume will be around 50,000 units. According to this estimate, the annual demand for fasteners is about 20,000 to 30,000 units. tons. The basic parts represented by fasteners are not only the basic industry of my country's equipment manufacturing industry, but also the foundation of various fields of national economic construction. During the 12th Five-Year Plan period, while maintaining some cost advantages, the industry must rely on new advantages such as technological progress, quality improvement and product cost performance to achieve sustainable development. It is estimated that by the end of 2015, the total output of the whole industry will reach 7.5 million to 8 million tons; under the overall situation of expanding exports, export products will show a fluctuating growth trend, and the average annual export growth rate during the 12th Five-Year Period is expected to be 8% to 10%. , By 2015, the total export volume of the whole industry will reach 30 billion yuan.
Industry experts said that domestic fastener companies of all sizes should look to the future. National key construction projects such as "high-speed rail", "aerospace", "highway" and "airport" are providing opportunities for tight companies to go high-end. Boeing plans to add new 3,400 aircraft, and the National Development and Reform Commission invested 800 billion yuan in the construction of rail transit in 6 cities. According to the planning of 36 planned urban rail transit project cities, by 2020, the new operating mileage of urban rail transit will reach 6,560 kilometers, and the tracks will be fastened. The demand for parts reached 5.5-7 billion yuan. These large-scale projects will greatly increase the demand for fasteners, titanium alloys and other fasteners, and it is not impossible to remove the "low-end" label.
