The whole level of the mining machinery of our nation is far behind the level of international advanced precedents. On the way to a strong nation of mining machinery manufacturing, opportunity and challenge coexists. Products’ design is the soul of manufacturing. The structure, function, quality, cost, delivery time and manufacturability, reparability, disposal after scrap and the relationship between human, machine and environment are basically determined in the stage of products’ design. The creativity of products’ design has become the determinant of enterprises’ status in the global competition.
The development of mining machinery is closely related to the improvement o human’s technology, modern technology of science and the whole level of the industry, especially the development of mechanical engineering and mining geology. The general trend of mechanical engineering’s development is digitalization, intellectualization, precision, micromation, vitality and ecologization. As a branch of mechanical engineering, mining machinery abides by the trend, too. Meanwhile, regarding the features of mining machinery, its trend will be digitalization, intellectualization, precision, micromation, vitality and ecologization.
Mining machinery is equipment of high technology and integration. Achievements of all fields are integrated into the development of new equipment. With the improvement of material science, manufacturing technology, information technology and computer technology, every round of production is infused with new technology, and the update cycle of machinery replacement parts becomes shorter and shorter and the change speed of new equipment becomes faster and faster. Especially the development of the large-scale mining machinery, it has no mature experience to refer to, and any mistake is allowed in the design, so it’s necessary to take advantage of all kinds of science to improve the efficiency and quality of products’ design, and the creativity and competitive power of enterprises. The development trend of digitalization is formed from the combination of mining machinery, computer technology and internet technology.
