With the improvement of the design and processing level of plastic mold enterprises, the manufacturing of molds is changing from mainly relying on the skills of fitters to mainly relying on technology. This is not only the change of production means, but also the change of production mode and the rise of ideas. This trend leads to the continuous improvement of the standardization degree of the mold, the higher and higher precision of the mold, the shorter and shorter production cycle, and the lower and lower proportion of fitters, which finally promotes the continuous improvement of the overall level of the mold industry. At present, China’s mold industry has more than 10 national high-tech enterprises and about 200 provincial and municipal high-tech enterprises. In line with this trend, it is an inevitable requirement for the main backbone of mold production to gradually change from skilled talents to technical talents. Of course, at present and for a long time, skilled talents are still very important, because it is difficult for molds to completely get rid of their dependence on skills.
Mold enterprises and their mold production are developing rapidly to informatization. In the information society, as a high-level modern mold enterprise, the application of CAD / CAM alone is far from enough. At present, many enterprises have adopted CAE, cat, PDM, CAPP, KBE, KBS, re, CIMS, ERP and other advanced manufacturing technology and virtual network technology, which are the performance of informatization. The trend towards informatization has become an industry consensus.
Not only the plastic industry needs to innovate, but also industries such as electronic and electrical waste treatment, solid waste recycling, scrap car recycling and waste paper recycling need to improve their independent innovation ability. It is not enough to improve their internal skills. We should also adhere to the development method to solve the problems in progress, change the new development mode, cater to the trend, rely on innovation to drive development, develop in the direction of informatization, and speed up the steady progress of the industry.
