In recent years, Tongliao City of Inner Mongolia has seized the opportunity to undertake industrial transfer demonstration zone construction in eastern Mongolia, promoted the expansion of the aluminum based new material industry, improved quality and upgraded, and accelerated the realization of high-quality development of the metal new material industry.
Into the Inner Mongolia Xuyang New Materials Co., LTD., located in Huolingol Industrial Park, has been put into production of the first annual output of 50,000 tons of spherical aluminum powder and the second annual output of 20,000 tons of aluminum silver pulp projects are stepping up production, and the third annual output of 5,000 tons of copper gold powder and 20,000 tons of aluminum paste projects have also entered trial production. According to the company staff Huo Dongliang introduction, aluminum powder is very widely used, involving aerospace, metallurgical chemical industry, photovoltaic industry, metal pigments, self-heating materials, etc., "Take daily life, such as self-heating small hot pot heating package, there is aluminum powder, and usually we see not metal but shiny metal objects, which have aluminum pigments." It is understood that in 2022, the company's aluminum powder production reached 30,000 tons, accounting for about 30% of the national market, and the products are sold to more than 60 countries and regions.
Aluminum powder in the traditional industry is a dangerous chemical, in order to improve the safety of the product, the enterprise through the inert process, so that it is no longer a dangerous chemical, reduce the cost of transportation and downstream enterprises, improve the product efficiency, the relevant technology has also been patented. It is reported that since the company put into operation, efforts to improve research and development and independent innovation capabilities, a total of 31 patents authorized, the core competitiveness of the enterprise continues to improve.
Inner Mongolia Chuangyuan Metal Co., Ltd. has a complete "coal - electricity - aluminum - aluminum processing" industrial chain. In the workshop of the electrolytic aluminum project with an annual output of 800,000 tons, rows of electrolytic cells are producing 24 hours a day to provide raw materials for downstream enterprises. Workshop director Liu Tao said: "The output of each electrolytic cell is about 3.7 tons per day, and the output value of a single cell can reach 25 million yuan a year." It is understood that in 2022, the total output value of the enterprise reached 13.5 billion yuan, ranking 19th among the top 100 private enterprises in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region.
In order to gradually move towards high-end aluminum alloy products, enterprises continue to transform and upgrade and extend the industrial chain. In the next workshop, four aluminum alloy production lines can achieve an annual output of 400,000 tons of light high-strength aluminum alloy materials, these production lines use the international leading production equipment, the process is also leading in the country, according to customer needs to produce different specifications, different sizes of aluminum alloy plate ingot. The finished aluminum alloy plate ingot can be further processed in the extrusion workshop and profile processing workshop. "After receiving the customer's order, we open the mold according to the requirements, set the extrusion machine to the required process data, and then put into the extrusion machine for extrusion, such as BMW, Mercedes and other car companies are our customers." Extrusion workshop director Feng Qingming said.
At present, Tongliao City is vigorously developing new energy, optimizing and adjusting the energy structure, building a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient energy system, promoting the transformation of "coal electricity aluminum" to "green electricity aluminum", fully developing the aluminum based new material industry, and building "China's green electricity aluminum City". In the next step, Tongliao City will increase the total amount of raw materials in the raw material end, and strengthen the increase in the deep processing end. It is planned that by 2030, the total output value of the aluminum-based new material industry will exceed 200 billion yuan, and it will become the largest battery foil production base, aluminum powder, aluminum silver pulp base and an important aluminum alloy material production base in the country.
