There are more than 100 abrasives manufacturers in Yichuan. While a majority of companies are concerning about declining company performance, inferior product standard and heavy pressure of energy-saving and emission reduction, Yichuan Dongfeng Abrasives Co., Ltd. neither reduces reduction nor makes reductancy, and continues production.
When asked about the key to success, the general manager Shi Tieshuan reveals, "Luoyang High-performance Abrasive Material Technical R & D Center is located right here in our factory."
The Most "luxurious" Place is Company’s Lab
2014 June 11th, iAbrasive reporters had an interview with Yichuan Dongfeng Abrasives Co., Ltd. Different from common companies, the most "luxurious" place is not the leader’s office, but company’s lab. Costly scientific instruments and all kinds of bottles with chemical reagent caught people’s attention.
Widely used in machining and grinding, Abrasives like abrasive cloth and grinding wheels are the "teeth" of the whole industry. It is said that the ups and downs of abrasives industry often represent the whole industry development level and speed.
The rapid development of industry brings in abrasives industry boom. Benefiting from rich bauxite resource, Luoyang has become China traditional abrasives manufacturing base. "Based on traditional production technology, bauxites are produced into abrasives of different particles via high temperature melting, crystal fracture and strict screening." Shi said honestly. Just like most enterprises, started in 1986, Yichuan Dongfeng Abrasives Co., Ltd did the same.
Shi only adheres to the simple truth that the market is both equal and cruel, only by going ahead of others can a company enjoy a bright future. As a result, he has always been generous with lab investment.
No Scientific Research Funds Reduction despite the Low Profit
Zhao gangqiang is an old worker in Yichuan Dongfeng Abrasives Co., Ltd, in whose memory the company has made three improvements to crushing process technology. Now the company adopts the latest BMK techniques. The particle shape of abrasives has changed to 6-edge cube. The same goes with cutting and grinding performance. Meanwhile, high energy-consuming and high emissions techniques have been either abandoned or improved gradually.
"Scientific expenditure is a great deal, once a scientific research succeeds, market opportunity and profits are along the way." Said Zhao, the competition has been fierce in recent years, and the profit is becoming less, but Dongfeng Abrasives Co., Ltd has put no less than 2,000,000 Yuan to R & D use.
Dongfeng Abrasives Co., Ltd has cooperated with Henan University of Technology, Zhengzhou Abrasives Association and China Coated Abrasives Association to make full use of instruments and human resource. Now the company is actively devoted to new products R & D. Besides, Yichuan Dongfeng Abrasives Co., Ltd is awarded "Small Giants" cultivating company as well as the reserve company to be listed. ■
