The competition is "involutionary", and the pace of new models is constantly refreshing. The current fierce competition in domestic new energy vehicles needs no further explanation.


How can auto parts companies maintain stable operations and grab orders? The answers of Zhaoqing's high-quality auto parts companies are first their own excellent proprietary technology and second digital transformation.


PART 01

#90 days → 35 days shorten the development cycle#


Zhaoqing Power Metal is a representative of Zhaoqing auto parts companies. The engine cylinder heads it produces, as core components and safety parts of automobiles, have always been the world's exclusive supplier of 6.2L and 6.4L cylinder heads for Chrysler (Stratis Group) in the United States.

The English name of Zhaoqing Power Metal Company is "Zhaoqing Power", which well interprets the style of Zhaoqing auto parts companies

With the technology accumulated in the era of fuel vehicles, the company has successfully carried out digital transformation.

Since entering the era of new energy vehicles, Zhaoqing Power Auto Parts has successfully transformed, and its products have increased from a single fuel vehicle project to pure electric projects, hybrid projects, aviation projects, oil pump cover projects and other multi-line projects.


Today, the new energy vehicle business has accounted for 75% of the company's total, and its products are supplied to brands such as Japan Meidensha, NIO, Hunan CRRC, Shanghai Electric Drive, Chery Automobile, BYD, GAC Aion, FAW Hongqi, Cosma Automotive Systems (Shanghai), and Xuanfu Technology.


The rapid pace of new energy vehicles has broken the various "old rules" of fuel vehicles, which has brought new challenges to the company, such as shortened development cycles and continuously compressed cost space.

Automakers gave them a 40-day "answer sheet",

Zhaoqing Power Metals "submitted the paper" in 35 days, which was largely due to the accurate, rapid and professional design solutions obtained by the simulated casting of digital transformation, as well as the company's professional and efficient industrial collaboration solutions, which enabled timely and accurate development of molds, tooling and other supporting equipment.

△Zhaoqing Power Metals successfully carried out digital transformation, greatly improving work efficiency. 


Zhaoqing Power Metals has been upgrading digitally since 2019, integrating production lines, financial data, quality data, energy data, logistics data, etc. into one platform, realizing the transition from decentralized to centralized office. The real-time flow of platform data enables the production line to respond quickly.


Relevant person in charge of Zhaoqing Power Metal introduced

For example, it used to take at least one day for a change in a production data to be reflected from employees to the statistics department. Now, through the platform, it is known almost at the same time. The summary of data such as production coefficient, weight, quantity, output, etc. of the product has promoted efficient communication of the production line and rapid response of process collaboration.


Not only that, when the person in charge of the car company came to Power Metal to discuss the R&D cooperation of new products, the person in charge of the technical department collected parameters through the platform, and the technical details of the development could be clarified on site.

According to statistics, since the promotion of digital reform, the equipment utilization rate of Power Metal has increased by 12%, the average energy consumption of equipment has decreased by 3.5%, the maintenance cost has decreased by 13%, and the on-time delivery rate has increased by 15%.

The relevant person in charge of Hongtu Technology said that through "data to the site", the company's production management efficiency has been greatly improved. For example, each product has a QR code, and the product circulates to each process with the code. The person in charge of the process can immediately grasp the excellent situation of the previous process, and the production flexibility is greatly improved. Through the platform, you can immediately grasp the production tasks, corresponding car companies, production progress, etc. of each die-casting machine. More importantly, you can improve our production process by analyzing production data.


This year in 2024, Zhaoqing City will focus on implementing the provincial pilot work of digital transformation of small and medium-sized enterprises, and focus on new energy vehicles (including new energy storage), electronic information, metal processing, green building materials and other industries.

Organize the selection of digital traction units such as supply chain leading enterprises and industrial chain traction enterprises, establish industrial ecological consortiums such as digital software and hardware enterprises, widely mobilize small and medium-sized enterprises to carry out digital transformation, and promote the digital upgrade of various links such as design, production, sales, service, management, and safety of small and medium-sized enterprises, so as to achieve cost reduction, quality improvement, and efficiency improvement, and continuously create value, and enhance the resilience and security level of the industrial chain supply chain.

新能源產業發展“加速”,肇慶汽配企業轉型打開新局面


投資肇慶 2024-06-27 23:36 中國廣東


競爭“內捲化”,新車型上新節奏不斷刷新,當前國內新能源汽車競爭的激烈無需贅言。


汽配企業如何穩經營,搶訂單?肇慶市優質汽配企業的答案一是自身過硬的專有技術,二是數位轉型。



PART 01

#90天→35天 縮短開發週期#


肇慶動力金屬是肇慶汽配企業的代表,其生產的引擎汽缸蓋作為汽車的核心零件和安全件,一直是美國克萊斯勒(斯特蘭蒂斯集團)6.2L和6.4L缸蓋的全球獨家供應商。


憑藉其在燃油車時代累積的技術,公司成功進行數位轉型。

進入新能源汽車時代以來,肇慶動力汽配成功轉型,產品從單一的燃油車項目增加至純電動項目、混動項目、航空項目、油泵蓋項目等多線並進。


如今的新能源車業務已占公司總量的75%,產品供應日本明電舍、蔚來汽車、湖南中車、上海電力驅動、奇瑞汽車、比亞迪、廣汽埃安、一汽紅旗、卡斯馬汽車系統(上海)、軒孚科技等品牌。

新能源汽車上新節奏之快,打破了燃油車的種種“舊規則”,這為公司帶來了新的挑戰,譬如開發週期的縮短和不斷壓縮的成本空間。

肇慶動力金屬主營的汽缸蓋是車輛安全件,要求十分嚴格,過去的開發週期是90天-180天,而如今新能源汽車客戶要求的是40天即給出樣品和報價。


“這在過去是難以想像的”,

肇慶動力金屬相關負責人表示。

市場壓力驟升,非常考驗企業的「內功」。


車企開出的40天「答题」時間,

肇慶動力金屬花了35天就“交卷”,這很大程度上得益於數位化轉型的模擬鑄造獲得精準的、迅速的、專業的設計方案,以及公司專業、高效的產業協同方案,獲得及時、準確的模具、工裝等開發配套。

肇慶動力金屬從2019年開始就進行數位化升級,將生產線、財務數據、品質數據、能源數據、物流數據等全部整合一個平台,實現了從分散型到集中型辦公,平台數據的即時流動能夠讓生產線快速響應。


肇慶動力金屬相關負責人介紹

譬如某個生產數據的變化,從員工層層反映至統計部門,過去需要起碼一天,現在透過平台,幾乎同時知曉,產品的生產係數、重量、數量、產出等數據的匯總推動了生產線的高效溝通和流程協作的快速反應。

不僅如此,當車企負責人到動力金屬商討新產品的研發合作,技術部門負責人透過平台集合參數,現場就可以明確開發的技術細節。

根據統計,自推動數位化改革以來,動力金屬的設備利用率提升了12%、設備平均耗能減少3.5%、維護成本降低了13%、交貨準時率提高了15%。

#沉澱資料 「反哺」生產流程提升#


走進廣東鴻圖科技股份有限公司的金利廠區,每條生產線上都醒目地擺放著一個指示牌,標註著壓鑄件供應的整車品牌,6800噸的超大型壓機正在上模。


近年來,鴻圖科技把數位轉型視為策略規劃的重要組成部分,並建構起自己專用的大數據平台。所有工序、流程及結果都會轉化成數據,既輔助生產,也為生產決策提供支援。

打開其平台,可以一覽無遺其生產、財務、能耗、品質、工程技術、庫存、採購、安全等17個主題的數據,可以快速產生150張不同內容的報表。

在過去,公司若調度相關情況,需要人工從各處「拉數據」然後製表。如今透過平台,不僅可以即時產生報表,而且17個主題的數據互相打通,可以更為立體地展現公司的經營狀況。


鴻圖科技相關負責人表示

透過“數據到現場”,公司的生產管理效率得到了極大的提升。譬如每個產品都有一個二維碼,產品隨碼流通到每個工序,工序負責人可以立即掌握上個工序的優良情況,生產彈性大為提升。透過平台,可以立即掌握每台壓鑄機的生產任務、對應車企、生產進度等,更重要的是可以透過分析生產數據,提升我們的生產流程。


今年2024年,肇慶市專注於實施省級中小企業數位轉型城市試點工作,並聚焦新能源汽車(含新型儲能)、電子資訊、金屬加工、綠色建材等產業。

組織遴選供應鏈龍頭企業、產業鏈牽引企業等數位牽引單位,組成數位化軟硬體企業等產業生態聯合體,廣泛發動中小企業進行數位轉型,推動中小企業的設計、生產、銷售、服務、管理、安全等各環節數位化升級,達到降本提質增效、持續創造價值,提升產業鏈供應鏈韌性與安全水準。


截至2024年第一季末,全肇慶市累計推動727家規上工業企業實施數位轉型。

目前,肇慶市產業正處於轉變發展方式、優化經濟結構、轉換成長動力的關鍵時期,肇慶市委、市政府高度重視工業企業數位轉型,將數位轉型作為推動我市製造業高品質發展的重要舉措,推動企業向數位化“要效率”,透過“上雲上平台”有效促進企業降成本、提品質、增效益,為肇慶市經濟高品質發展注入強勁動力。
