Chinese seamless steel tube industry should strengthen the ability of independent innovation

    “Most of the early core technology of seamless steel tube industry were introduced from abroad, in the future it must  be in our independent innovation.” LiuJie, President of the Chinese academy of engineering, academician of China science and technology association, said in seventh seamless steel tube production technology conference held in the Beijing technology university from October 21 to 22.
    In the “eleventh five-year plan” period, China’s seamless steel tube industry develop rapidly, all kinds of units rise to about 400 sets, the annual production reaches about 30 million tons, the output of 15 million tons by 2006 from to over 2010 in 25 million tons, accounts for about 50% of the world. Our country has become the name matches the reality of seamless steel pipe production and consumption country.
    LiuJie pointed out in meeting that in the process of rapid development of seamless steel tube industry, there would be a lot of problems, such as low industrial concentration, weak innovation ability, too high manufacturing costs, product structure without rational, high-end varieties of low proportion, unstable product quality and professional senior talent shortage. In addition, due to the antidumping investigation of our country’s seamless steel tube by the United of States and Europe in the past two years, seamless steel tube industry got into a vicious competition. Most indent of enterprise was insufficient, and the efficiency benefits was down, even some enterprises had a huge losses.
    We can say that innovation generally have three major types, they are technology innovation, management innovation, and system innovation. The type of independent innovation can be divided into three kinds, namely the original innovation, integrated innovation and in the introduction, and innovative again which is on the basis of digestion (namely second innovation). The ability of independent innovation is that it has the independent innovation ability. For the development direction of the seamless steel pipe industry of our country in the future, LiuJie suggested that seamless steel tube industry in China had to be in the introduction of technology at the same time strengthening independent innovation. Enterprise should be dedicated to colleges and universities, research institutes, industry leading enterprise of cooperation, and strive to build a good relationship, hand in hand to solve production technology, quality, variety extension industry issues, sharing enterprise culture, products manufacturing, marketing, and other aspects of the successful experience to seek common development.
LuoTieJun, chief of raw materials industrial company, points out in the meeting that for enterprise, dealling with excess capacity should base on improving product quality through the transformation of the service by the manufacturer, aggrandizement advantage enterprise in the industry’s position, outstanding advantage the competition ability of the enterprise, forcing the enterprise without condition in this industry to flinch. LuoTieJun said the government should create the fair competition of the external environment for seamless steel tube industry for the industry internal to self digestive contradictions, and explore the development of healthy way. On one hand, the government will continue to supervise the steel tube of existing enterprise with quality, environmental protection, energy consumption and the level of equipment. On the other hand, in the current policy to maintain continuity and stability of the environment, enterprises should seize the opportunity to adjust and continuously enhance the competitiveness.
