In 2017, with the in-depth adjustment of the market, it has become the norm to eliminate backward and promote high-end progress. Environmental protection, energy saving, high efficiency, short process, digital monitoring and intelligence as the development direction of printing and dyeing machinery are leading the development of printing and dyeing machinery enterprises. Market.
Domestic equipment is widely recognized
At present, the performance of domestic printing and dyeing equipment has gradually approached the level of similar foreign products. Coupled with the advantages of high cost performance and timely equipment after-sales service, it has formed a greater competitive advantage for foreign printing and dyeing equipment companies. In recent years, some old European and Japanese printing and dyeing equipment manufacturers have drastically reduced their output, and some have even withdrawn from the Chinese market.
As a domestic manufacturer of printing and dyeing pretreatment equipment, Jiangsu Wuxi Xinlian Printing and Dyeing Machinery Co., Ltd. has sales of nearly 110 million yuan in 2016. The mercerized locomotive produced by the company can reach a speed of 130 meters per minute, which has been welcomed by downstream enterprises. Its sales volume has continued to grow since 2016. Wuxi Yangjia Machinery Co., Ltd. is a dyeing machine manufacturer, and its products have been increasing in domestic sales in recent years. The company's 2016 sales were between 160 million yuan and 180 million yuan, an increase of 40% from 2015. The products of Jiangsu Hongqi Printing and Dyeing Machinery Co., Ltd. are positioned at the high end. In 2016, the company's annual output value was 220 million yuan, an increase of 15% over 2015.
Despite this, the current development of printing and dyeing equipment enterprises is also facing many practical problems. For example, the current shortage of medium-pressure steam in some printing and dyeing enterprises agglomeration areas has led to a decline in product quality. Printing and dyeing enterprises have a demand for all-electric heating setting machines. What is gratifying is that domestic companies have responded quickly in this regard, and domestic printing and dyeing equipment companies can quickly adapt to user needs and produce marketable products.
In addition, many companies report that despite the increase in sales, the two biggest problems facing companies now are insufficient market demand and disorderly competition. At the same time, insufficient labor, rapid increase in labor costs, and large fluctuations in the price of some raw materials are affecting the companies. The influence of enterprises is still relatively large, which forces enterprises to continuously promote product innovation and development.
In addition, some printing and dyeing companies with high product quality requirements will consider purchasing imported printing and dyeing equipment when they upgrade their equipment or expand their production capacity in the future. This requires domestic printing and dyeing machinery manufacturers to continue to work hard to improve product quality and brand value.
Outstanding performance in the shaping machine market
Because of the wide application range of the stenter setting machine, it is also applied to the online monitoring, remote monitoring, waste heat recovery, automatic filter cleaning and other technical improvements of the setting machine, which is more suitable for the market and environmental protection needs. Therefore, the shaping machine market has been relatively hot in the past two years and has maintained a high growth rate. With the increasing demand for functional fabric products in the market, coating machines have also become a hot spot for sales in domestic and foreign markets.
In 2016, the sales of almost all forming machine manufacturers have increased. Leading domestic companies in the forming machine field such as Hengtian Lixin Industrial Co., Ltd. have performed more prominently. In particular, the export volume has grown rapidly. In 2016, its export volume accounted for To about 50% of the total sales that year. The stenter setting machine produced by Yuanxin Industrial Co., Ltd. has suddenly emerged. Although the product price is much higher than that of the general domestic stenter setting machine, the market share of the product has risen rapidly and the brand awareness has also continued to increase. Wuxi Feida Textile Printing and Dyeing Machinery Co., Ltd., which mainly produces setting machines and dryers, also increased its sales in 2016. The company's setting machine uses a variety of heating methods, so it is more popular in the market, and sales continued to grow in 2017.
Intelligence and personalization are the big trends
At present, the application of intelligent technology for printing and dyeing equipment has become more and more extensive. Various digital production monitoring systems, digital mixing, automatic distribution systems and other products are playing an increasingly important role in printing and dyeing production. They can not only ensure the accuracy and reproducibility of dyeing materials, but also reduce labor in cleaner production. Strength and stable product quality have also been recognized by more and more users. It can be seen that the popularization of numerical control technology has opened up a brand-new development space for printing and dyeing machinery. In recent years, the establishment of a digital monitoring system for printing and dyeing workshops and the realization of data collection throughout the entire process have all been reflected. A large number of printing and dyeing intelligent equipment such as auxiliary handling robots for printing and dyeing equipment, flat screen loading and unloading robots, cloth conveying, intelligent logistics systems for cone yarn conveying, and conveying vehicles have emerged in large numbers, and automatic dye and auxiliary distribution technologies and products have gradually emerged.
The automatic overfeeding system of the setting machine launched by Changzhou Hongda Technology Group uses intelligent image technology to monitor the weft density of the fabric on the fabric feeding side during the setting process. When the weft density of the fabric cannot reach the set value, it can be adjusted by overfeeding. The system adjusts the weft density to the ideal state in real time to ensure consistent weft density, achieve the standard for the weight per unit area of knitted fabrics, increase the first-time success rate, and provide guarantee for the production of high-quality textiles.
With the advent of the era of intelligent printing and dyeing, personalization has gradually become a hot topic. Personalized customization has great market potential in the current market. Some companies, represented by the "Miyin" platform, an online printing system launched by Hangzhou Honghua Digital Technology Co., Ltd., have already begun exploring and practicing in this area. The platform aims to create the fastest online digital printing customization platform that can help consumers customize personalized products with original content, and can provide unique services such as flexible manufacturing and single-piece customization.
In addition, the combination of powerful forces and the expansion of equipment application fields are also a new trend in the development of printing and dyeing enterprises. Fujian Jilong Machinery and Shanghai Taiwei jointly launched the world's first new printing model that seamlessly connects the two processes of rotary screen printing and digital printing-the LV series rotary screen digital combined printing machine. Use the advantages of rotary screen and digital inkjet printing to match each other for production. For example, rotary screen is used to print color pastes that are brightly colored, large in size, or glue, pearl paste, paint and other special inkjets that cannot be made; The ink printing machine prints patterns with rich color levels and strong moiré effects, and can print patterns with rich color levels, gorgeous and special color pastes, and has good color reproducibility, high output and low cost of use.
Environmental protection is still an eternal theme
At present, "green textile" is still a prominent theme in the development of the textile industry. Environmental protection requirements have become increasingly stringent. Most printing and dyeing companies that do not meet environmental protection requirements have been shut down. Demand for mid-to-high-end equipment has increased.
On the other hand, many printing and dyeing equipment manufacturers feel the requirements of the downstream market for the adaptability of equipment varieties, which creates opportunities for companies with strong R&D capabilities. For example, with the improvement of environmental protection requirements, the market share of Blu-ray network will become higher and higher in the future, and the market potential of such products is unlimited.
With the rapid development of the knitted fabric market in recent years, low liquor ratio overflow dyeing machines, low energy airflow dyeing machines and both gas-liquid dyeing machines are becoming the main products of various equipment manufacturers. Among them, the growth of airflow machines (air-liquid machines) is more obvious.
In addition, as environmental protection requirements continue to increase, manufacturers and research institutions have also increased their R&D investment in waterless printing and dyeing equipment. With the continuous emergence of new textile fibers and fabric structures, as well as the increasingly stringent requirements for energy conservation and emission reduction, the dyeing process must be continuously improved and optimized, and dyeing equipment must be used to achieve this goal, which has promoted more active investment by equipment manufacturers Research and development.
Digital inkjet printing machine not only has the characteristics of diversification, small batch, personalized customization, etc., on the other hand, it also conforms to the needs of environmental protection and clean production. With the continuous improvement of the technical level, the printing speed of the high-speed digital printing machine is close to that of the flat screen printing machine, and the production cost is gradually decreasing, and it is ushering in a period of rapid growth. Rich color expression, no spending restrictions, no plate making (saving time and plate making costs), and water-saving, energy-saving, improved working environment, reduced labor intensity and other advantages, which are unmatched by traditional screen printing equipment. Facing the development trend of high-speed and low-cost inkjet printing, many companies have already launched Single Pass full-width print head digital printing equipment. The attractive market prospects are attracting more and more companies to invest in the development of digital printing machines and their supporting products, but the high input and low output situation has also brought tremendous pressure to inkjet printing machine manufacturers.
