Overview of China's automotive moulds

The rapid development of China's automobile industry has brought a broad space for the development of domestic automobile moulds. In addition, due to cost and market factors, the centre of gravity of mould manufacturing in developed countries has also gradually shifted to developing countries represented by China. The comprehensive factors at home and abroad promote the rapid development of the domestic automotive mould industry, the emergence of many new automotive mould enterprises. According to statistics, in 2012, China's key backbone mold enterprises reached nearly 110. Among them, stamping moulds account for about 37%, China has become a veritable automobile mould manufacturing power.

China's automotive mold production capacity in the world is very advantageous, but, due to the domestic high-end automotive mold enterprise technology is slow to improve, technical innovation ability and mold new technology research and development and application ability is insufficient, resulting in the domestic high-end mold development capacity is not fully meet the domestic automotive industry supporting demand, high-end automotive mold is still a large part of the need to rely on imports. So that the domestic automobile mould industry needs to make up for this short board as soon as possible in order to make up for a major shortcoming of China's automobile mould industry.

China's auto industry as China's top ten revitalization industry, get the national policy support, coupled with the promotion of the car to the countryside, China's major auto enterprises are increasing production, 2012 China's auto production more than 19 million units, keep the global production and sales of the first position. Luo Baihui said that the manufacture of an ordinary car itself requires about 1,500 moulds, among which there are nearly 1,000 stamping moulds and more than 200 moulds for interior parts. By the rapid development of China's automotive industry, China's automotive mold industry showed rapid growth, market capacity continues to expand. According to Japan, the United States and other developed countries of the automotive industry level calculation, to 2015 China's mold services in the automotive manufacturing industry, if the proportion can reach 40%, then China's automotive mold industry to 2015 total sales of up to 70 billion yuan.

With China's auto production rising year by year, domestic and foreign-funded auto mould enterprises in China's auto market, to a certain extent to meet the hot domestic demand and export demand, but also for China's auto mould industry to upgrade and create a good opportunity. It can be seen that the prospect of China's automotive mould industry is very broad.

Review China's automotive mold development process, in the mold industry in the 12th Five-Year Plan has been clearly put forward, the future of the automotive mold industry to high, precise, pointed direction, which gives the current development of China's automotive mold to put forward higher requirements. Looking back on the journey, China's automotive mold has also experienced a number of leaps and bounds in development.

According to experts, China's automotive mold start almost synchronized with the car, since the 50s Changchun first automobile manufacturing plant project started, it has not stopped the pace of progress. Into the 21st century, China's automotive mold industry to experience great development. The design and manufacture of car covering parts mould has the characteristics of difficulty, quality and high precision requirements, is the best reflection of the level of automotive mould. After years of development, China's current service for the automobile mold has accounted for about one-third of all the mold production, which can be seen in the mold industry and the automobile industry in the important position. In particular, the automobile covering parts mould, directly related to the car models, so its status is particularly important.
