Guangxi’s First Chassis Smart Manufacturing Plant Founded

On Sep. 25, 2017, Guangxi’s first wholly demonstration chassis smart manufacturing plant was founded in Liudong Passenger Vehicle Chassis Plant of Liuzhou Wuling Automobile Industry Co., Ltd., which is affiliated to Guangxi Automobile Group. The plant covers an area of 33 acres and is expected to produce 1 million sets of components for chassis per year. The first phase investment is 436 million yuan with an annual production capacity of 200,000 sets of main retarders and 200,000 key components for automatic gearbox. The project is planned to be put into production in the second quarter of 2018.
Applying smart manufacturing technology into the auto parts production is an effective method for Wuling Industry to promote its transform and upgrade in recent years. The smart manufacturing plant fills the gap of the localization of key equipment for rear axle and independent suspension assembling line, forms key technology’s industry standard and patent, not only improving the quality and efficiency in key components manufacturing and also becoming the pacesetter in building a high-level smart chassis components production mode. Wuling Industry takes the opportunity of product transform and industry upgrading, and devotes to build the self-owned brand of auto parts with international competitiveness. By upgrading from “manufacturing” to “smart manufacturing”, and following closely with the new type industry development trend of Guangxi, Wuling Industry is growing toward “Made in China 2025”.
