The National Rubber and Plastic Machinery Information Center and the China Rubber/Plastic Technology and Equipment Magazine conducted an inventory of the development status and incidents of China's rubber and plastic machinery industry in 2020. After organizing experts and industry organizations, the following 10 major industry events have been selected as "Top 10 News of China's Rubber and Plastic Machinery Industry in 2020", which are now announced.
  1. The establishment, compilation and review of the 3 rubber industry standards came to an end
  In August 2020, China Chemical Industry Guilin Engineering Co. Ltd., Mesnac Co. Ltd., and Tongji University are the main editors, and the Rubber and Plastic Design Professional Committee of China Petroleum and Chemical Survey and Design Association is the organizing unit, together with related editors and participating units complete three industry standards: "Rubber Factory Logistics Design Specification", "Rubber Factory Integrated Monitoring System Design Specification", and "Rubber Factory Waste Gas Collection and Treatment Design Specification". The formulation of the 3 industry standards has filled the gaps in the industry and has significant guiding significance for the reconstruction and expansion of rubber factories and intelligent manufacturing.
  2. In 2020, China's rubber machinery industry has undergone structural changes and the situation is gratifying
  According to the National Rubber and Plastic Machinery Information Center’s survey of nearly 100 major rubber machinery companies across the country, despite the impact of the global epidemic, the overall operation of China’s rubber machinery industry in 2020 will show signs of slow growth. Although the development speed of the rubber machinery industry has slowed down, various economic indicators have continued to grow steadily, especially in the second half of the year. It is expected that the industry will maintain a relatively rapid development momentum for a longer period of time. However, due to the hindrance of foreign rubber machinery demand, the export output value of major rubber machinery products has a significant downward trend.
  According to statistics, in 2020, the total sales revenue of China's rubber machinery industry will exceed 13 billion yuan, and the sales of pure rubber machinery will exceed 10 billion yuan, an increase of more than 10% over the previous year. In 2020, China's rubber machinery industry will see an increase in sales output, but a trend of declining profits. On the whole, rubber machinery companies pay more attention to technological innovation and equipment intelligence than ever before. Our country's rubber machinery industry continues to improve its technical level and research and development capabilities, and new technologies and new products continue to emerge. In 2020, the concentration of the rubber machinery industry will further increase, and innovation capabilities will become stronger. However, companies dominated by traditional products have difficulties in operating, and the industry has shown a clear structural bull market.
  Entering 2021, from the order situation, the industry will continue this structural bull market. Good companies have full production orders, and most companies have good production tasks. At the same time, with the gradual improvement of the new crown virus epidemic, it is predicted that China's rubber machinery industry will continue to pick up in 2021, and export earnings will gradually improve.
  3DXS successfully developed the first set of 440E+800ET series internal mixing unit in China

Ltd. successively released heavyweight projects such as new rubber equipment products, intelligent rubber equipment R&D platform (ROC2.0), rubber chain cloud industrial Internet platform, and the world’s first EVEC new rubber material.
  All these will bring a qualitative leap in the manufacturing process, product quality, and business model of the rubber industry.
  5The first set of new high-precision hydraulic pitch-adjusting calender developed by CGEC successfully passed the acceptance
  In April 2020, China Chemical Industry Guilin Engineering Co. Ltd. (CGEC for short) released its first set of new high-precision hydraulic pitch-adjusting calenders successfully passed the acceptance. This equipment can achieve high-precision positioning of rollers and rapid adjustment of roller pitch. The no-load adjustment accuracy can reach 0.001 mm, the adjustment speed can reach 7 mm/s, and the response speed can reach the millisecond level. Compared with traditional mechanical pitch calenders, It has obvious advantages in many aspects such as production line efficiency, product accuracy, product stability, and cost optimization. The new technology applied in this equipment represents a new generation of product level.
  6Guilin Rubber Machinery's first 77-inch new dual-mode hydraulic vulcanizing press was successfully delivered
  In May 2020, Guilin Rubber Machinery Co. Ltd. (Guilin Rubber Machinery for short) independently developed the first 77-inch engineering tire new dual-mold hydraulic vulcanizing press, which was officially packaged and shipped to domestic customers. The equipment has the advantages of compact structure, stable lifting, dual-mode independence, environmental protection and energy saving, efficiency improvement, and convenient maintenance, etc., which has been fully affirmed by customers.
  7Haitian Group exported JU55000III super large two-board machine
  In April 2020, the JU55000III ultra-large two-board machine was successfully assembled after more than 50 days and was exported to the international market. The product has excellent performance, the weight of the whole machine is 410 tons, the injection weight and the volume modulus exceed 50 kg and 25 cubic meters respectively, and the maximum distance of the template is 6000 mm.
