Yangzhou wants to build a “automobile city”, and industrial innovation is the key. Recently, with the initiative of the Municipal Science and Technology Bureau, the Yangzhou Automobile and Parts Industry Technology Innovation Strategic Alliance formed by 116 automobile and parts manufacturers was formally established. Tsinghua University, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Jiangsu University, Nanjing University of Science and Technology, Yangzhou University, etc. College experts joined as "think tanks." It is reported that,
The relevant person in charge of the Municipal Science and Technology Bureau said that the establishment of the Automotive Industry Innovation Alliance is conducive to integrating the strength of the city's auto companies and R&D institutions, forming a “combination boxing” for industrial development, and working together on the research and development of key technologies and the development of important markets. Enhance the international competitiveness of Yangzhou's automobile industry.
Forming two major "combination punches" in the technology market
“The automobile industry in Yangzhou started early, and there were car companies such as Yaxing and Goddess at the beginning of reform and opening up. It once caused a sensation throughout the country.” Ge Ruhai, a professor at the School of Automotive and Transportation Engineering at Jiangsu University, said that Yangzhou not only owns automobile manufacturing. Enterprises and auto parts supporting enterprises are also very complete, and the automobile industry's agglomeration development pattern has been formed.
“Although Yangzhou’s automobile industry has become a climate, it must be clearly aware of the lack of innovation.” Yang Changshan, the first chairman of the Yangzhou Automobile and Parts Industry Technology Innovation Strategy Alliance and chairman of Yaxing Automobile Group Co., Ltd., believes that Yangzhou has good The automobile industry base, but for a long time, there is a lack of technical exchanges between various car companies, and the research and development power is relatively scattered. There is no “combination boxing” when opening up the market.
The establishment of a strategic innovation alliance is to change this situation. The person in charge of the Municipal Science and Technology Bureau stated that the alliance is guided by the national industrial policy and realizes the supporting and interactive development of Yangzhou's automobile and parts industry chain through resource integration, industry-university-research cooperation and technological innovation.
"In the future, Yangzhou auto companies will take advantage of the boxing, open up the market and attack the group, and share the industry resources with internal technology research and development to jointly enlarge and strengthen the auto industry."
Play a group advantage
Top-level design to technical breakthroughs
What will happen after the establishment of the Auto Union? This is a topic of concern for Yangzhou auto companies.
Turning over the "Articles of Association of Yangzhou Automobile and Parts Industry Technology Innovation Alliance", the reporter saw that the statute clearly stipulated the ten key tasks of the alliance and comprehensively defined the tasks of the alliance. For example, the second article proposes to integrate various resources, guide the sharing of resources of alliance members, establish an alliance technology innovation service platform and service system, formulate service planning and service standards, bring into play resource efficiency, and promote the improvement and support of the industry chain.
Ge Jinhong, general manager of Yangzi Pipe Fittings Company, said with excitement that the company's production and sales scale is about 200 million yuan, and it is impossible to rely on its own technological innovation. In the future, the company can use the strength of the alliance to carry out technical cooperation with related companies to jointly overcome some technical problems. "In terms of Yangtze pipe fittings, the current level of automation of welding is not high, and it is necessary to re-optimize the company's overall welding process with external force."
Ge Ruhai is a member of the expert team of the strategic alliance. He said that he told reporters that after the establishment of the alliance, he will fully cooperate from top-level design to technical research and work together on industrial technology research and development. "We will study the national automobile policy and market trends and assist the government in formulating and improving the technology development plan for the automobile industry." He said that it will also assist enterprises to actively strive for policies, maximize development funding support, and build alliances into government contacts. Corporate bridges and ties.
The reporter learned that technical cooperation mainly has two meanings: first, technical cooperation between experts and enterprises, experts use their own technical directors to help enterprises solve technical problems; second, technical cooperation between enterprises, many companies within the alliance have With their respective technology and market advantages, the alliance will promote technical exchange within the company.
Corporate college marriage
Jointly improve the level of innovation in the automotive industry
By 2016, the annual production capacity of 1 million vehicles will be formed. This is the development goal of the automobile industry formulated by the city. To achieve this goal, technological innovation is the key.
The reporter noted that the newly formed alliance not only gathered most of the automobile manufacturing enterprises in Yangzhou, but also absorbed many experts from universities. The person in charge of the High-tech Department of the Municipal Science and Technology Bureau said that this alliance is not only a alliance between enterprises, but also a marriage between enterprises and college experts. It is hoped that the platform of alliances will enable more enterprises to establish deeper cooperation in production, education and research with universities.
"Our cooperation with Yangzhou auto companies has already begun." Chen Jingxin, a professor at Yangda Mechanical Engineering College, told reporters that the college has established long-term cooperation with many companies such as CIMC Tonghua, Jiangsu Benyu Body, and Kaming Mould. Help these companies solve technical problems in production. For example, she said that the development of high-strength tailor-welded body molds jointly developed with Jiangsu Kaming Mould has been listed as the Innovation Fund Project of the Ministry of Science and Technology; the Jiangsu Provincial Enterprise Postgraduate Workstation, which was jointly established with CIMC Tonghua, has been successfully launched. Research on the optimization of the design of the pump boom.
"With this innovation platform in the future, our cooperation between universities and enterprises will be closer." Many university experts said that after 3-5 years of hard work, the alliance will promote Yangzhou's automobile and parts industry to reach domestic leading and international advanced level.
