China machine tool industry, mainly due to the metal-cutting machine tool industry (machine), metal forming machine tools industry (that is, forging machinery and equipment), casting machinery, woodworking machinery industry, Tools, meter and cutting tool industry, Abrasives industry, the machine tool Annex electrical and machine tool industry, with several significant industry CNC machine components manufacturing industry, and other nine components.
2000 industry-wide total of 796 enterprises, including production of metal-cutting machine tool industry enterprises 230, and annual production capacity of 180,000 Desk, Model 2500 kinds of metal forming machine tool industry manufacturers 80, the annual production capacity of 50,000, the Model 560 species; casting machinery industry 30 production enterprises, the annual production capacity of 10,000 Desk, Model 300; woodworking machinery industry 30 production enterprises, the annual production capacity of 25,000 Desk, Model 250. Its machine tools, forging machinery and mechanical three small foundry industry welding machine tool industry is the main areas of application, the last 10 years especially in the welding industry application Forging of the fastest growing industries, machine tool industry followed.
With welding technology in the industry, the rapid development of applications in the machine tool manufacturing more and more use of the welded structure, welding and casting, forging and welding, cutting and welding machine tool manufacturing industry in China has become a general trend of development . Welding Technology has become an important foundation for the machine tool manufacturing process, and from a single processing technology, including the development of a pretreatment of raw materials, cutting blanking, forming welding, welding inspection and welding, such as post-processing integrated engineering. Manufacturing has been inseparable from the welding machine.
