ParticipationExpertHe said that China's iron and steel industry has entered a new stage of high-quality development, and a number of iron and steel enterprises with characteristics in the process of high-quality development and transformation have emerged, which has accumulated a lot of experience worth learning for China's iron and steel industry to achieve high-quality sustainable development. At the same time, the high-quality development of China's steel still faces some challenges, which still require the joint efforts of all parties.

Nangang to create high-quality development samples

Nangang President Zhu Ruirong told a reporter from China Securities News that "JIT C2M" is a user-centric manufacturing end. Under the premise of ensuring punctuality and high efficiency, large-scale and flexible manufacturing, providing users with personalized customized services, and through E-commerce, bigDataCloud computing, such as "2Link"Technology, to achieve direct touch interaction with the user.

"In this mode, we are not only the first-class downstream users of service steel, but also the users who want to go to the end of consumption. For example, for high-strength steel, wear-resistant steelConstruction MachineryThe company they built.Excavator, and sold to the mine in use, Nangang's services will be extended to the mine, pay attention to the mine's technical needs and parts replacement needs, and finally build a value-added C2M ecosystem." "Take shipbuilding as an example. This model can shorten the shipbuilding cycle and labor costs by 1/3, and save more than 20% of materials."

Industry insiders said that the advancement of this new model is a "production process revolution" and a "business philosophy revolution" in Nangang ". Because steel is a process-oriented enterprise, with both chemical and physical changes, flexibility is very difficult, and the service has to reach the C end of the C end. This model creates a new development model in the process of the steel industry moving towards the middle and high end.

Zhu Ruirong said that under this new model, from June 2014 to 2017, the customized distribution business volume was 1.71 million tons. The research and development cycle of new products was shortened by 30 per cent, the contract fulfillment rate was increased to 94.28 per cent, and the pass rate of original steel grades was increased to 97.25 per cent. Customized distribution services from the ship board to wind power, structure, construction machinery, bridges and other varieties of coverage, user satisfaction increased to 91.26.

On December 14 last year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology held a national symposium on the integration of the two modernizations, and the innovative practice of the "JIT C2M" model led by Nangang was promoted at the national level. In the same year, JIT C2M platform construction project received a subsidy of 20 million yuan from the central government, which is the only project in the country and Jiangsu iron and steel industry that received this fund.

Entering a new stage of high-quality development

As an industry that gives priority to the implementation of supply-side structural reform, the iron and steel industry has vigorously promoted the "three elimination, one reduction and one supplement", taking the resolution of excess capacity as a breakthrough, optimizing the structure, extricating itself from difficulties and upgrading, and improving quality and efficiency. A large number of iron and steel enterprises have begun to practice high-quality development. Baowu, Angang, Shougang, Hegang, Maanshan Iron and Steel, Zhongte Group, Shagang, Fangda Special Steel, Nangang, Zhongtian Iron and Steel, etc., in the equipment level, product grade, innovation ability, intelligent manufacturing, green development, employee recognition and Profitability and other aspects have their own characteristics, and have accumulated a lot of experience worth learning for my country's steel industry to achieve high-quality sustainable development.

Chi Jingdong, vice president of the China Iron and Steel Association, said at the forum that China's iron and steel industry has the material basis for high-quality development and the technical and talent conditions for high-quality development. In terms of technology, the industrial structure of the iron and steel industry has been continuously optimized, the quality of varieties has been significantly improved, great steps have been taken in energy conservation and environmental protection, scientific and technological innovation achievements have been constantly emerging, and a consensus on high-quality development has been formed.

Chi Jingdong said that the above factors have enabled the steel industry to become one of the first industries to achieve high-quality development.

Data show that in 2017, the average number of member enterprises counted by the China Iron and Steel AssociationSalesThe margin recovered to 4.7 percent. After several generations of hard work, my country's iron and steel industry has been built, from geological exploration, mining and dressing, to ironmaking, steelmaking, steel rolling, and then to deep processing of the entire industrial chain's process equipment technology level, as well as automation, information level, energy conservation and environmental protection level. On the whole, it has reached the world's first-class.

Chi Jingdong said that the transformation and upgrading of the iron and steel industry is to solve the problem of unbalanced and inadequate development, and to vigorously improve the quality and efficiency of development in accordance with the principle of quality first and benefit first. This means that the iron and steel industry has entered a new stage of high-quality development, and iron and steel must rely on innovation in technology, quality, cost, service and management to achieve development.

Still need to work together

Industry insiders said that the current high-quality development of steel faces four major challenges: to prevent increased pressure on new production capacity; to prevent the resurgence of "ground steel" pressure rising; short-process steelmaking development urgently needs to straighten out the policy; steel enterprises environmental pressure is increasing.

In this regard, Xu Wenli, director of the Iron and Steel Division of the Department of Raw Materials Industry of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said that the achievements of the supply-side reform of the iron and steel industry are hard-won and need to be maintained and cherished by all participants in the industry, but with the improvement of industry efficiency, new problems have also emerged, and some localities and enterprises have the urge to increase production capacity, and the resurgence of "strip steel" has repeatedly occurred. "From the end of May to the end of June, the inter-ministerial joint meeting will organize special spot checks to prevent the resumption of overcapacity and the resurgence of" local steel ". The purpose is to dispel the dangerous idea of launching projects and expanding production capacity, and further consolidate the results of capacity reduction."

Li Xinchuang, Dean of the China Metallurgical Planning and Research Institute, believes that in the future, the steel industry will no longer be a direct competition of products, but a competition between the supply chain and the client. It is a competition between the ability of enterprises to allocate resources, strengthen the construction of the supply chain and the client, and break through Simple business relationships, create a global resource integration platform, and achieve a high degree of coordination and complementary advantages in the supply chain.

Intelligent manufacturing is one of the five key projects of "Made in China 2025". Iron and steel is a process-oriented industry with a high degree of automation. The development of intelligent manufacturing has a good foundation and large space. At present, mechanization, electrification, automation and informatization coexist in China's iron and steel industry, and there are great differences in the development of different enterprises.

Xu Wenli said that since 2015, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology has implemented a special campaign for intelligent manufacturing pilot demonstration. In the iron and steel industry, Baosteel hot continuous rolling and cold rolling, Anshan Iron and Steel's mines, Tangshan Iron and Steel's bars, Taigang stainless steel cold rolling, Shandong Shengtong high-precision special steel wires for steel cord have been selected as demonstrations of plates, mines, bar profiles, stainless steel and steel wires. "We hope to find a development roadmap suitable for intelligent manufacturing in the iron and steel industry through the pilot demonstration of intelligent manufacturing, so as to play a booster role for the high-quality development of China's iron and steel industry."
