Domestic CNC machine tools have become the mainstream of consumption

CNC machine tools are the mainstream equipment of contemporary machinery manufacturing industry. China’s CNC machine tools have experienced ups and downs for more than 30 years. With the breakthrough of key technologies and the formation of independent production capacity, by 2010, the output of CNC machine tools in China reached 236,000 units. The consumer income exceeded US$6 billion; by 2011, the output of CNC machine tools reached 257,100 units, a record high; as of June 2017, China’s CNC machine tool industry achieved sales value of 267.3 billion yuan, an increase of 41.7%. According to the prediction of CNC Machine Tool Industry Association, in 2018, the export growth of domestic CNC machine tools will reach about 30%.

From the perspective of the industry product line, the total sales of the gantry-type CNC cutting machine, portable CNC cutting machine, and desktop CNC cutting machine decreased significantly, compared with the difference between the total sales of manual equipment and previous years.

It is reported that during the “11th Five-Year Plan” period, with the breakthrough of a series of key technologies and the formation of independent production capacity, China began to highlight the “heavy encirclement” of “foreign manufacturing” and entered the ranks of the world’s high-speed CNC machine tools and high-precision CNC machine tools. . Driven by demand, China’s CNC machine tool production maintained a high-speed growth, with an average annual compound growth rate of 37.4%, which has become the mainstream of machine tool consumption.

During the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, the development of CNC machine tools in China will strive to solve some existing technical and production problems, foster core competitiveness, independent innovation, quantitative integration and brand building, and upgrade to a strategic level, achieving a total industrial output value of 800 billion yuan. The goal. And strive to pass and strive to achieve a series of medium and long-term goals, such as the transformation of machine tool manufacturing countries into machine tool giants, and the realization of domestically produced medium and high-end CNC machine tools occupying a dominant position in the Chinese market through 10-15 years.

“CNC machine tools have become the mainstream of the machine tool industry. While maintaining rapid growth, industrial upgrading and structural adjustment have also achieved results. With independent innovation, the pace of upgrading of technology products to high-end is accelerated.” Luo Mohui, CEO of believes that in the future 3-5 years, the strong demand of China’s CNC machine tool industry will continue to maintain rapid growth, will usher in a larger market space, the market growth rate will reach 12%, which will drive China’s domestic CNC machine tools and their CNC systems and related functional components The development has undoubtedly provided an excellent opportunity for domestic CNC system manufacturers to continuously develop their own technologies and expand the market.

During the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, China will continue to invest and increase its efforts. Each major special project will drive capital investment of more than 10 billion yuan. At the same time, the CNC machine tool industry will solve the problems of large and not strong mainframes, lagging development of numerical control systems and functional components, large gaps in high-end CNC machine tools, and unstable product quality during this period, and strive to achieve machine tools through 10-15 years. Tool manufacturing countries have changed to machine tool powerhouses, and a series of medium- and long-term goals such as domestically produced high-end CNC machine tools occupy a dominant position in the domestic market.
