CTIA‘s 2021 Tungsten Raw Materials & Cemented Carbide Research Annual Forum, Shanghai

From October 18th to 19th, the "2021 China (Shanghai) Tungsten Raw Material Industry Development High-end Forum" was successfully held in Shanghai. Four Highlights of High-End Forums: Clear positioning, clear overall design ideas, closely related to the current development theme of the tungsten industry

The theme of the forum is "Strengthening, Planning, Cooperating, and Win-Win". At the opening ceremony, the speeches of several leaders fully expounded this theme from different positions and different angles.

In recent years, China’s tungsten industry has continued to maintain steady development, and the pace of industrial upgrading has accelerated. However, it has also suffered from problems such as excessive consumption of primary resources, low industrial concentration, and serious product homogeneity. Work hard, strengthen research and development, strive for excellence, realize import substitution as soon as possible, minimize the "stuck neck", and continue to work together to jointly promote the development of the tungsten industry and achieve a win-win situation in the industry.

In-Depth Exploration of "Enterprise Empowerment"

During the meeting, when Minghe had a special exchange with many entrepreneurs, he found that everyone mentioned one word-enterprise empowerment. This also triggered Minghe's thinking about the core competitiveness of the industry. Is it raw materials, equipment, technology or talents? We gradually found the answer through communication.

COMMON VIEWS, CTIA‘s 2021 Tungsten Raw Materials & Cemented Carbide Research Annual Forum, Shanghai

China has the largest tungsten resource reserves in the world, and is also the world's largest tungsten producer, consumer and trading country. In this annual meeting, the industry benchmarking comparison report made by Dr. Zhou Peng of China Tungsten High-tech Materials made many participants ashamed. Compared with Sandvik, the prominent market positioning of China's tungsten industry is narrow, and data such as single service capability and low labor productivity are still disturbing. How to quickly catch up with benchmark companies and accelerate the development of the industry is the most important topic for practitioners in the current tungsten industry. Many people feel that the conference is still unfulfilled and the reason why they do not want to leave is that everyone is waiting for answers.

1. Industry alliances to realize independent innovation of products and technologies, from the absorption and introduction of products to positive research and development

In 2020, driven by the variables of the new crown epidemic, China's economy has undergone a major turning point, and the tungsten industry is no exception. The fundamental driving force for product upgrades, cost reduction and efficiency enhancement must come from strong investment in technology. The association can organize joint research and development of general technology, organize universities and related enterprises, social resources, etc., to overcome industry problems, share technological achievements, and reduce The investment in R&D cost of a single enterprise. In future annual meetings, specific methods and tools for corresponding technological innovations can be added.

2. Accelerate the automation and intelligence level of the industry, invest in low-cost automation equipment, accelerate the replacement of labor, and reduce the impact of labor shortage on enterprise development

In the last link of the forum, the hot topic of labor shortage was raised, but no one found an effective way. Simply raising wages will not solve the problem, and the increased costs brought about by it cannot be borne by the enterprise in the long term. The association can set up an industry automation equipment research alliance to bring companies and equipment manufacturers together, invest together, share the results of equipment use, and promote the rapid improvement of the industry's automation and intelligence level.

3. Ensuring safe production in the industry, promoting low-carbon and green sustainable development, and discussing how to promote zero-carbon mines and zero-carbon enterprises

Safety, zero-carbon, green, and sustainable development are the consensus of the participants, and core sensitive matters such as corporate secrets are not involved. Future industry forums should continue to exchange experience, organize mutual visits and visits, learn from experience, and share operating methods. Especially in the fields of safety education and training, environmental protection management methods, dual-carbon response measures, etc., build the same platform, co-construct content, share methods, and share ideas, and strive to be at the forefront of the development of the non-ferrous industry.

4. Enterprise management reform, all-round empowerment; accelerating industry talent training

To make up for shortcomings and develop high-quality tungsten industry, it needs enterprise empowerment and talent team building. After all, the competition of enterprises is the competition of outstanding talents. China Tungsten High-tech has established the "China Tungsten Academy". Chairman Li Zhongze and other leaders personally preached and accepted the profession. The association can organize corresponding sub-forums, extract the cases, experiences, lessons, etc. accumulated by exploring enterprises in management and talent training, and exchange, share and disseminate during the conference, so that more small and medium-sized enterprises can find ways to cultivate talents. The path, through enterprise reform and management upgrade, to get out of development difficulties and improve development efficiency.
