Guangdong is a major manufacturing province with a complete range of industries. However, in the process of industrial transformation and upgrading, "bottleneck" issues such as core technologies remain prominent. Recently, the Guangdong Provincial Department of Industry and Information Technology released the "Guangdong Province Development Plan for Cultivating High-end Equipment Manufacturing Industry" (2021-2025, draft for comments) recommending that it be transformed into manufacturing high-end CNC machine tools, aerospace equipment, satellites, and their applications. Railway transportation equipment, marine engineering equipment, and other important bases for manufacturing high-end equipment nationwide.
The solicitation draft proposes that by 2025, Guangdong will establish multiple national and provincial innovation centers and laboratories to promote breakthroughs in key technologies and key components in key areas. The annual income of the high-end equipment manufacturing industry will increase by more than 6%. Cultivate a group of industry leaders with international influence and independent brand value.
The consultation draft shows that Guangdong has now cultivated a number of equipment manufacturing enterprises and emerging enterprises, and its economic growth has been ranked first in the country for 30 years. But at the same time, the development of the high-end equipment manufacturing industry also faces many challenges: including the key core technology is constrained by people, independent research and development and innovation capabilities are insufficient, the problem of "jam neck" is still prominent; the foundation of heavy equipment is relatively weak, the industrial supporting system is not perfect, and high-end CNC systems, High-reliability electric spindles, cutting tools and other key components depend on the existing supporting equipment, and the large-scale overall machine enterprises are seriously insufficient in their relevance and supporting capacity to small and medium-sized enterprises.
The consultation draft pointed out that Guangdong's high-end equipment manufacturing industry is in a critical period of transforming from element-driven to innovation-driven to digital, networked, and intelligently upgraded. It will pass five key tasks and five key projects. Complete the development goal of maximizing high-end equipment manufacturing in 2021-2025.
