China's Machine Tool Industry Lacks Core Competitiveness
May 11, 2018

Cutting tools have always been known as "industrial teeth". The performance and quality of cutting tools can directly affect the productivity and quality of cutting machine tools. Excellent machine tools can not produce good products without the cooperation of high quality tools. So the cutting tools are small, but they are very powerful.

However, there is a gap in the technology, service, quality and propaganda of the domestic CNC tool and imported tool. In addition, domestic customers have low trust in domestic CNC tools, which leads to a large number of domestic tool market.

Foreign cutting tools are almost filled with the market space of Chinese cutting tools, occupying the dominant position of the market. In some large automobile manufacturers, domestic cutting tools maybe only 10% of the total project.

Life and stability are major weakness of domestic tools. High quality cutting tools not only require high technical content, but also very important in life and stability.

The average life span of some domestic tools is 1/3-1/2 of that of foreign ones. Not every product has a low life span, but the difference in life span is so large that the average life of the tools is low.

There have been such experiments: Chinese tools are not inferior to foreign countries.

However, there are always 1 or 2 unsatisfactory Chinese tools in 10 tools.

The cutting process accounts for 90% of the whole machining work. Even the errors of 1 or 2 cutting tools can greatly affect the processing effect of the product.

In addition, unlike other industries, numerical control tools are highly technology-intensive, knowledge-intensive and highly talented, and their development is highly dependent on talents.

Domestic numerical control tool technology talents, management talents, marketing talents are scarce, the general training period is 3-5 years.

However, colleges and universities have not assumed the responsibility of training the professional personnel of CNC tool, relying only on the enterprise to cultivate slowly, often with less effort, and not necessarily able to retain talents.

If we hope to match domestic tools with domestic tools, we must face these gaps.

To face the Chinese cutting tool companies in basic technology, innovation ability, marketing ability and service ability and so on each aspect. Find others strengths, make up their own shortcomings, efforts to go forward, struggle, to catch up with and even surpass the foreign enterprises.
