The upgrading of "made in China" cannot take the wrong medicine

[in order to arm themselves, ideal Chinese enterprises still need to make arduous efforts]

the International Machine Tool Exhibition held in Shanghai has attracted people's attention. Someone asked: what is a machine tool? There is a post on it saying that it is the bed for robots to sleep. In a country that regards itself as a big manufacturing country, this answer is really unimaginable

including international high-end brands Warrick, Yamazaki Mazak, Mitsubishi, okk, Mikron, as well as domestic well-known enterprises Shenyang machine tool, Dalian machine tool, Hanchuan machine tool, etc., thousands of machine tool enterprises around the world gathered in Shanghai New International Expo Center. The achievements of modern human civilization are created by machines, and machine tools are machines that make machines. Today, the machine tool industry is fully connected with light vehicles, electric vehicles and even unmanned vehicles in the fields of national defense and military industry, aerospace, rail transit, automobile manufacturing, marine wind power and so on. What force can pull the global economy out of the financial vortex? From the perspective of China, a big country with real economy, we have to focus on machine tools

in fact, in the reflection caused by the Foxconn incident a while ago, it has become a widespread consensus that made in China must step out of the embarrassing position of the low end of the global industrial chain. Where is the path? A commentary in the Wall Street recently issued a prescription saying that made in China is facing the historic threshold of upgrading. The journey from the low end of the value chain to the high end must be accompanied by the process of replacing labor with more advanced technology in the factory workshops. They suggested arming the Chinese dragon with robots and called on multinational companies with advanced manufacturing industries to seize the last straw in the Chinese market

the machine tool is equipped with an automatic control system, that is, a robot. After the Foxconn incident, China's coastal processing enterprises are increasingly demanding higher wages, and the rise in labor costs has become an inevitable trend. Therefore, the logic of machine replacing human has become a reasonable choice, which can solve the dilemma of workers being alienated into machine parts in the workshop with a higher degree of automation. However, do a large number of contract manufacturing enterprises like Foxconn have the ability to realize automation? Can their technical level arm themselves

a decent contractor, even if he is dressed in a suit and dress, can't essentially change the actual status of his workers. Under the conditions of global division of labor, Foxconn has also obtained the provincial special funds for strategic new industries and the provincial special funds for the transformation of major scientific and technological achievements. Foxconn is only doing OEM for multinational companies such as apple, HP, Dell, Nokia, etc. such enterprises themselves have low profits, neither the strength of independent innovation, nor the ambition to make great efforts to invest in research and development. How can they achieve automation

according to the prescriptions put forward in the above comments, the greatest possibility is to allow these enterprises to import more advanced technologies, equipment and production lines from developed countries for more advanced OEM production. The millions of dollars invested include the construction of a new production facility in the United States. As a result, Foxconn will more obediently solidify at the lowest level of the smile curve and rely on or even rely on the machinery and equipment provided by others for a long time. In the end, they can only hire fewer local workers who, in their view, have more and more salary requirements and are more and more unable to bear hardships and stand hard work

the low-end made in China and the suffering of Chinese workers are originally caused by their dependence on foreign high-end machines, but some people expect to get rid of this embarrassment and suffering by importing more machines. As early as before the financial crisis, when the real estate speculative foam was forming, many signs showed that China's manufacturing industry was cooling down. Large state-owned enterprises rely on inefficient monopoly to maintain profits, but a large number of small and medium-sized private enterprises cannot break through the technological ceiling of multinational companies by their own strength. In this way, both state-owned and private enterprises in China are in line with economic rationality. They are competing to earn speculative profits by frying land and real estate

maybe we can't blame Chinese enterprises for their lack of ambition and forgetfulness. The pressure of short-term profits is the most sufficient excuse, which makes them do not have to and do not want to take the cliff road of scientific research and technological innovation. China's manufacturing industry is willing to make a living in the middle and lower reaches of the world's manufacturing industry chain. As a result, enterprises like Foxconn that rely on OEM production for a living have become China's advanced productive forces. They have forgotten that more than half of China's large enterprises do not have their own technology development centers. 80% of petrochemical equipment, 70% of car industrial equipment, textile machinery, offset printing equipment, CNC machine tools, 100% of optical fiber manufacturing equipment, and 85% of integrated circuit chip manufacturing equipment rely on imports
