With the improvement of the design and processing level of the mold industry, the manufacture of molds is changing from the past mainly relying on the skills of fitters to rely mainly on technology. This is not only a change in the means of production, but also a change in the mode of production and the rise of ideas. This trend has led to a continuous increase in the standardization of molds, higher and higher precision molds, shorter and shorter production cycles, lower and lower proportion of fitters, and ultimately promoted the continuous improvement of the overall level of the mold industry. In the four elements of mold quality, delivery cycle, price, and service, more and more users have placed the delivery cycle first. Asking the mold company to deliver as soon as possible has become a force. Companies that do everything possible to improve their adaptability, raise their technological standards, improve their equipment levels, improve their management, and increase their efficiency are all effective means of shortening the production cycle of molds.
Vigorously improve the development capacity, push forward the development work as far as possible until it involves the product development of the mold user. In the middle, even if there is no clear user object before the development, become passive and active. At present, televisions and monitor housings, air conditioner housings, and motorcycles and other plastic parts have adopted this method. The development of mobile phone and telephone molds has also begun to try this practice. The mold factory can only wait for a contract. Only in accordance with the requirements of the user can carry out passive design of mold design. China's mold industry currently has more than 10 national high-tech enterprises and about 200 provincial and municipal high-tech enterprises. Adapting to this trend, it is an inevitable requirement that the main backbone forces for the production of molds be gradually transformed from technical talents to technical talents. Of course, at present and for a long period of time, technical talents are still very important, because after all, it is difficult for molds to completely get rid of their dependence on skills.
Mould enterprises and their mold production are rapidly developing to information technology. In the information society, as a high water The flat modern mold and die companies are simply not enough applications for CAA/CAM. At present, many companies have adopted technologies such as CAE, CAT, PDM, CAPP, KBE, KBS, RE, CIMS, and ERP, and other advanced manufacturing technologies and virtual network technologies. These are the manifestations of informatization and are in the direction of informatization. The development of this trend has become an industry consensus.
