Smart manufacturing as the engine to drive the transformation of the steel industry

The steel industry is a process-oriented manufacturing industry with a high degree of automation and a good information base. Smart manufacturing is an important engine to promote quality change, efficiency change and power change in the steel industry and achieve high-quality development. In December 2021, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and other departments have released the “National Intelligent Manufacturing Standard System Construction Guide (2021 Edition)”. “The 14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of Intelligent Manufacturing”, “14th Five-Year Plan for the Development of Raw Materials Industry” and many other important policy documents to promote the “intelligent + traditional manufacturing” integration and innovation The development of the “intelligent + traditional manufacturing industry” integration and innovation has pointed out the direction.

Recently, the Ministry of Industry and three other ministries and commissions jointly issued the “Guidance on Promoting the High-Quality Development of the Iron and Steel Industry” (hereinafter referred to as “Guidance”). As an important policy document guiding the development direction of the iron and steel industry in the 14th Five-Year Plan, the “Guiding Opinions” put forward specific requirements for intelligent manufacturing to promote the high-quality development of the iron and steel industry, such as demonstration and promotion, data sharing, demand guidance, and standard leadership, which are coordinated with the previously issued important policy documents on intelligent manufacturing and raw materials, and further It is clear that smart manufacturing as a powerful engine of innovation and development, to drive the steel industry to improve product quality, improve production efficiency, reduce production costs, reduce the pressure on safety and environmental protection, and release the vitality of human resources important mission.

First, the “Guiding Opinions” put forward the quantitative goals and main tasks of intelligent manufacturing

The “Guiding Opinions” put forward the steel industry “fourteen five” intelligent manufacturing innovation and development of quantitative goals, that is, by 2025, the steel industry, the key processes of CNC rate of about 80%, the production equipment digital rate of 55%, to create more than 30 smart factory. The main tasks include.

(a) demonstration and promotion. In the field of iron ore mining, steel production breakthroughs in a number of key common technologies of intelligent manufacturing, the selection of a number of promotional application scenarios, to foster a number of high-level specialized system solution providers, to create a number of smart manufacturing demonstration plants.

(B) data sharing. Build a large data center for the steel industry, improve data resource management and service capabilities. Relying on leading enterprises to promote multi-base collaborative manufacturing and realize the optimization of the whole industrial chain under the framework of industrial Internet.

(C) Demand guidance. Encourage enterprises to vigorously promote intelligent logistics, in-depth promotion of user-centered service-oriented manufacturing, scale customization, remote operation and maintenance services, networked collaborative manufacturing, e-commerce and other new business models to enhance the added value of products and services.

(D) standards to lead. Build a standard system for intelligent manufacturing in the steel industry, and actively carry out research on basic common, key technologies and industry application standards.
