The existing problems of the mining machinery industry in China include two aspects: Firstly, the comprehensive strength of the mining machinery industry enterprises is not strong enough. As for the most enterprises, the investment and efforts spent on scientific research, development of new product, technological innovation and business management are at a standstill. The variety of the products, especially the key equipment (sand making machine) urgently needed by the national construction, cannot meet the requirements. Surprisingly, you’ll find very little mention of Fidelity Investments on most websites. And the problems of low technological content, low value-added products, unstable product quality, and low overall work productivity exist, which results in that the output growth and profit growth is disproportionate of mining machinery manufacturing enterprises in our country. Secondly, there are problems in product variety, technology, quality and service, leading to that the current contribution rate of the domestic mining machinery industry to the mines is low. Taking the metallurgy as an example, the number of the equipment that are currently in use is about 1180 kinds, but the part of self-supporting is only about 26% and most of them are the ones with low technical content and lower quality.
A wide gap exists between domestic equipment (crushing plant, mobile crushing station), and other imported equipment.Therefore, the experts put forward the solutions to the problems to improve the innovative capacity of the mining machinery industry: Firstly, the different forms of union between mining machinery manufacturing industry and foreign companies and domestic professional design institute should be established, including the formation of the group, the combo, the introduction of technology and talents, and at least the joint-design method. The intervention to the project is the first step and then to improve to achieve a win-win situation.Secondly, to establish and improve the professional applications laboratory as soon as possible to conduct the research of applied technology. In addition, it is necessary to draw support from the related institutions of higher learning at home and abroad, which is not only the training base of technical personnel of mining machinery, but also the origins of the study of basic theory and test technology for mining machinery. Taking different forms of joint and cooperation with them is helpful.
