On the morning of November 20, the reporter came to Hubei Yongzhe Holding Group Co., Ltd. (Yongzhe Group for short). In sharp contrast with the cold weather, the production workshop was in full swing.
Walking into the hot stamping production workshop, the cleanliness of the workshop left a deep impression on the reporter. The slogan "Practicality and Innovation" was printed on the wall at the entrance. A hot stamping production line on the left side of the workshop was in production, and the right side was neatly stacked. The auto parts products can be matched with BAIC, BYD, Zotye and other brand cars, and are waiting to be shipped.
Hot stamping parts are the flagship products of the group. Hot stamping is a new technology specially used for automotive high-strength steel stamping and forming parts, and it is one of the key technologies to realize the lightweight production of automobiles. According to Wang Xudong, general manager of Yongzhe Group Hot Stamping Parts Co., Ltd., the company's competitiveness among hot stamping technology companies ranks among the top four in the country, and the number of orders has steadily increased in recent years.
Flying against the trend under the new normal of slowing economic growth, the improvement of the group's competitiveness is inseparable from the word "innovation".
Innovation is implemented in the intelligent update of equipment. On the hot stamping production line, the automatic production line of hot stamping parts introduced from Sweden, the box-type heating furnace first used in China, the world's top laser cutting machine... The introduction of updated high-precision equipment all demonstrates the strength of Yongzhe Group The manufacturing capacity of hot stamping equipment. Due to the increase in orders, the company opened a new park on Airport Road and plans to add two more hot stamping production lines to meet market demand. The company took advantage of supply-side reforms and made efforts in "intelligence". After technical reforms and the introduction of updated feeding equipment last year, the presses that originally required 10 to 14 people to operate are now reduced to 6 to 8 people, and labor costs are greatly reduced.
Innovation is reflected in technological research and reform. The group attaches great importance to the combination of production, education and research, and conducts school-enterprise cooperation with the scientific research teams of many universities such as Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan University, and Hubei University of Arts and Sciences. The company set up a technology research and development department, and cooperated with Wuhan Iron and Steel, Baosteel, and China Automotive Engineering Research Institute to carry out technological innovation and scientific research. The patents for the injection system for shot blasting machines and the cooling water circulation system of the hot stamping heating furnace obtained in 2016 are the fruits of the Group's adherence to technological innovation.
Innovation is also manifested in system management. In strict accordance with national industry standards and requirements, the group implements quality control throughout the entire process from raw material entering the factory, process design, manufacturing and processing, and product assembly, strengthens the operation of the quality review system in the process manufacturing link, and improves process quality assurance capabilities. At the same time, the group adheres to the HSE management policy of "obeying laws and regulations, saving energy and reducing consumption, reducing environmental pollution, safety prevention, scientific management, and continuous continuous improvement", introducing "6S" and lean production management to improve efficiency and reduce costs at the same time Achieve green development.
The group actively responds to the call of the central government and insists on supply-side reforms. While strictly controlling quality management and providing more high-quality supplies to the market, it implements a market-oriented and precise production strategy, produces according to orders, reduces the retention time of inventory products, and saves Cost, activate kinetic energy.
Today's "Yongzhe" products are widely used in automobile manufacturing, aerospace and other fields. The innovation strategy of "innovating in development and developing in innovation" has been deeply rooted in the hearts of every "Yongzhe person". "The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China puts the revitalization of the real economy in an important position and proposes to accelerate the construction of a manufacturing power. I am very excited. The report of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China also mentioned innovation many times, which strengthened our determination to persist in innovative development. Li Mingyong, Chairman of Zhe Group, said, “The dream of serving the country by industry has always lingered in my heart, and it is even stronger as we enter a new era. In the future development of the group, we will continue to adhere to a comprehensive innovation strategy and rely on innovation to rejuvenate the enterprise.”
