1.1.5 Necessity of Project Construction
(1) Aluminium alloy hubs project construction is very necessary for producing energy-saving and safe automobiles.
Compared with steel hub, aluminium alloy hub has better performance. Automobile lightening design is the current trend. Increasing the application proportion in light alloy (aluminium, magnesium, etc.) in automobile components is one of the important means for lightening the automobile. Therefore, the first advantage of aluminium alloy hub is light mass. The advantage of light mass is obvious: fuel utilization rate, automobile speed and brake performance have been increased. The second advantage is fast heat dissipation. Fast running automobile tyres have friction, braking and acceleration with the ground and cause high temperature, if heat dissipation is poor, resulting in heat accumulation, it is easy to produce flat tyre at high temperature, brake weakening or even dysfunction. Due to coefficient of heat transfer and structural features, aluminium alloy hub enables the heat dissipation efficiency to be multiplied compared with steel ring, thus reducing the aging speed of brake system and tyre as well as the probability of flat tyre at high temperature and dysfunction high temperature arising from long-time braking, very helpful for increasing driving safety. The third advantage is damping property. The damping performance of light alloy is much better than that of steel, good damping will ensure stable and safe driving. In conclusion, installation of aluminium alloy hub is the best choice for producing energy-saving and safe cars.
(2) The construction of aluminium alloy hubs project is very necessary for promoting centralized development of domestic wheel industry.
The production concentration ratio of domestic wheel industry is relatively low, the quantity of manufacturers of products in the same category is 5-6 times of the developed countries, and output is only 1/10 of theirs. At present, among more than 80 domestic aluminium hub manufacturers, only 9 manufacturers have annual output of over 2 million and certain scale and stable market. Several enterprises with large scale and strong strength divided up domestic complete automobile supporting market, and some top enterprises exported to major international market, most of manufacturers mainly supply for domestic and foreign retail market; the second is low production supporting rate. The supporting rate of Chinese wheel enterprises is 54%, and generally over 80% in developed countries. The whole industry is in a dispersed, messy and poor state, and the industrial concentration ratio is very low. At the moment, reaching an cooperative production agreement with Changchun FAW Company to constructing 10 Million Pieces/Year Aluminium Alloy Hubs Project has positive significance for promoting the centralized development of domestic wheel industry.
(3) Aluminium alloy hubs project can powerfully boost the coordinated development of automobile industry supporting in Jilin.
Big enterprises and big groups have outstanding advantages in scale, management, capital, technology, talent and brand, having strong innovation ability and sustainable development ability, greatly driving and radiating the industrial development, and occupying a decisive position in economic development. Tightly grasping the opportunity that Changchun FAW Group wants to construct "strategic alliance of supply chain", taking effective measures according to the progress requirement for automobile part industry of Baicheng Economic Development Zone, supporting and cultivating, and making a batch of automobile complete automobile supporting projects with strategic significance stronger and bigger can cultivate local tax source enterprises, increase fiscal taxation, and promote the leading enterprises in the province to develop more quickly, strengthen the overall economic strengthen of Jilin Province, and facilitate the industry of Jilin to revitalize comprehensively.
