The strategy of the hottest metal container in the

  • Detail

Metal containers: strategies for the new century I. Basic information of the industry at present, there are about 1500 metal container manufacturing enterprises in China, mostly in Guangdong, Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang, Fujian, Shandong and other places. The metal packaging industry has become a forest of foreign-funded enterprises. Representative metal container manufacturers include Boer Asia Pacific Group, Pacific Group, crown group, East China can making group, Fujian LianJian group, Sanshui Jianlibao Fute container company, Hangzhou COFCO Meite company, Wuxi huapengjia Duobao bottle cap company, Haikou coconut tree can making company, Shanghai Ziquan packaging company, Shandong Lipeng packaging company, Beijing org Xinmei can making company, Shanghai Meilin zhengguanghe group iron printing can making company Steel drum plant of Sinopec Sales Company; Large equipment manufacturing enterprises and raw and auxiliary material suppliers include Shanghai Baosteel Group tinplate factory, WISCO tinplate factory, Taiwan uni president tinplate company, Guangdong Zhongyue tinplate company, Guangzhou ICI coating company, Suzhou PPG packaging coating company, and grace (China) sealant company. According to statistics, the total output of main products in metal containers in China in 2000 was 192 tons

II. Existing problems

1 During the 10 years from 1986 to 1996, the metal container packaging industry introduced a large number of advanced equipment. For example, the number of automatic production lines for two-piece cans has increased from 13 (the speed is about 800 per minute) to 26, and the production speed is 1000 ~ 1800 per minute; There are nearly 200 automatic production lines for three piece cans, and 40% of the production lines can produce 600 ~ 1200 cans per minute. At present, the operating rate of most factories is only about 50%, and the equipment is idle and wasted seriously, which is the result of macro imbalance and blind launch. Therefore, the competent departments are called on to strengthen macro control

2. In the past 40 years, tinplate has been mainly imported, and China can only produce more than 100000 tons of tinplate every year. After the oil in the oil tank of the Ministry of metallurgy was sucked into the oil pump through the filter oil screen, the localization of tinplate has been put on the agenda since 1996. By 2005, it is estimated that the total production capacity of China's tinplate will reach 1.6 million tons. At present, the annual demand for tinplate in China is about 80 ~ 100 tons, which is the embodiment of the law of economic development stage. This is likely to lead to a situation of supply exceeding demand, which should be controlled as soon as possible

3. Due to the oversupply of the market, various enterprises are racing to reduce prices in order to seize the market. This kind of disorderly competition has caused flames of war and artificial market chaos. However, it is difficult for the state to set prices, and price coordination can only be carried out step by step

III. Development Ideas in the new century

first, the metal container packaging industry should have a sense of urgency to enter the WTO

secondly, consolidate the existing famous brand products. At present, most of the domestic two-piece cans, three piece cans and aerosol cans have caught up with the level of similar international products. In the future, while continuing to implement the strategy of building famous brands, we should promote ISO9000 international quality certification as soon as possible on the basis of reaching the international level, so as to strengthen the competitiveness of domestic metal container packaging enterprises in the international market

thirdly, the competition for talents at home and abroad is fierce. Without high-quality talents, it is difficult to improve product quality and implement scientific enterprise management. Therefore, we must speed up the introduction of talents, and at the same time, depending on the status, we should adopt the method of combining short-term training with further study in Colleges and universities for the employees with low original quality, in order to improve the overall quality of the industry

IV. new products and technologies

keep pace with the prosperity of the market. The designs and varieties of metal barrels and cans are also constantly updated. The products have different shapes and are more beautiful. Shanghai Baoyi can making Co., Ltd. succeeded in producing two-piece cans with special tinplate produced by Baosteel. The output was 400million in 1999 and 800million in 2000

the sealing cover used in canned food has been replaced by the large opening easy pull cover and the unscrewing cover, which solves the problem that the cover of canned food is difficult to open. It is also a new technology to produce vacuum safety cover by using the secondary cold rolling horse to study the material ratio of port iron

at present, China generally produces tinplate with thickness of 0.17mm ~ 0.28mm. The existing tinplate manufacturers are trying to develop thin and high hardness tinplate, but it will take some time and introduce technology

the quality of China's metal packaging products has been improved. Some products have reached the level of similar international products, but our technical level and raw and auxiliary materials still lag behind those of advanced countries

since the 1990s, Germany, Japan, Britain, the United States, France and other countries have successfully developed coated iron that can completely replace tinplate, which is an epoch-making progress. At present, developed countries have adopted extremely thin steel plates with a thickness of 0.07mm ~ 0.12mm to make barrels and cans, and cans made of alloy aluminum plates can be heated in microwave ovens. Taiwan Province of China is developing cans that can be directly heated by fire. The printed patterns on the outer surface of the cans and the inner coating will not fall off during the heating process
