Although wires and cables are only a supporting industry, they are closely related to all sectors of the national economy and are widely used in power, construction, communications, manufacturing and other industries, known as the "artery" and "nerve" of the national economy. With the rapid development of the industry, the number of new enterprises is rising, and the market competition is becoming increasingly fierce.
Pan Maolong, the chief engineer of Shandong Hualing Cable Co., Ltd., said that in the first half of this year, despite the impact of the complex market environment from both inside and outside, the enterprise has maintained rapid growth in terms of output value and profits and taxes over the same period, and has made new breakthroughs in nuclear power, high-end equipment supporting and other fields
This confidence comes from innovation.
Seize new opportunities
Pan Maolong introduced that, looking at the whole market, we are facing very serious challenges. "For example, the cable application market in the construction field has been shrinking in recent years, and many peers with single products have been gradually eliminated by the market."
But this year, Hualing Cable has taken the lead in nuclear power, high-end equipment and other fields. Pan Maolong said that, especially nuclear power cables, from the end of last year to the first half of this year, accounted for a large proportion of the company's business
In addition, Hualing cable products are also used in automobile, high-speed rail, subway and other fields. "Jinan is promoting subway construction, which is a good development opportunity for us. At present, Hualing cable products are used in many subway lines, and it is expected that the demand will be greater in the next year, so we are confident in the future market."
Research and development of new products
Opportunities are always reserved for those who are prepared. Pan Maolong firmly believes that. Hualing Cable has changed from traditional cable to special cable through continuous innovation, but a lot of human, material and financial resources will be invested in R&D during this period.
Pan Maolong introduced that the market threshold of nuclear power cables is actually very high. "There are hundreds of cable plants in Shandong, and we are the only one that can obtain the nuclear power cable production qualification." It is understood that nuclear power cables first put forward higher requirements for materials. Compared with ordinary cable materials, the service life of nuclear power cables must meet 60 years, and they can still remain in normal use after undergoing a series of extreme tests such as aging resistance and radiation resistance.
"Since 2012, after numerous repeated research and development tests, we have finally obtained the international level test report of cable materials used in the third-generation nuclear power island." Pan Maolong said that this also means that Hualing Cable has a ticket to enter the nuclear power cable, ushering in a broader market.
Inject new kinetic energy
Thanks to the unremitting research and development of new products, Hualing Cable has made new breakthroughs in the field of new materials in the upstream of the industry.
In 2016, Shandong Hualing Cable Co., Ltd. and the Energy Research Institute of Shandong Academy of Sciences jointly established Shandong Kehua Saibang New Materials Co., Ltd., which is the only China Belarus high performance polymer material technology transfer and transformation center in the province.
"The materials we are currently studying are internationally recognized as the most advanced technology." Pan Maolong introduced that relying on advanced new material technology, Hualing Cable has further expanded its product line. In addition to nuclear power cables used in nuclear power plants, it has also developed cables for private buildings with a service life of up to 70 years. In addition, there are corrugated pipes and high protection safety helmets for rail transit.
It is reported that Hualing Cable established a technology center in the enterprise as early as 2005, and new products are introduced every year. It is this kind of unremitting innovation that has injected continuous power into the development of enterprises today.
