How to digitalize industrial companies in Jiaxing
Jiaxing in East China's Zhejiang province recently rolled out policies to advance the intelligent reform of its industrial companies, local media reported on April 22.
Intelligent reform refers to the construction of digital workshops and intelligent factories.
The policies set a target for the primary construction of the so-called Jiaxing Intelligent Manufacturing in 2021.
By 2021, Jiaxing plans to invest 100 billion yuan ($14.13 billion) in intelligent reform and house more than 18,000 industrial robots, 100 digital workshops and 10 intelligent factories.
Numerical control equipment accounts for more than 70 percent of the total equipment among leading industrial companies, and over 55 percent of the digital equipment in these leading companies have access to the internet.
Jiaxing also plans to launch six projects to boost intelligent reform.
The city will help companies from traditional industries, including textiles, clothing, dying, home appliances, wood, and fasteners, to adopt industrial robots and other advanced intelligent equipment.
It will help companies in competitive industries, including information technology, auto parts, chemical engineering and fiber, and paper making, to collect production data by using new-generation information technology in a bid to combine workshops, production lines and equipment.
Companies will be encouraged to carry out digital reform with the help of industrial internet platforms and build a group of 5G-technology-enabled digital workshops and intelligent plants.
Jiaxing will boost intelligent manufacturing development by taking advantage of the coordinated development of intelligent manufacturing in the Yangtze River Delta region and deepening international exchange and cooperation.
It will construct a zone which gathers service suppliers in intelligent manufacturing, including system integrators and providers of industrial software, internet platforms, and financial services.
The city also plans to develop 10 role model small and micro-sized companies and 10 model industries in intellectualized reconstruction.
