At present, Guhe Drive has entered the supply chain system of international first-class agricultural machinery manufacturers such as John Deere, Aike, Deutzfar, Dongfengjingguan, Yuanda, Ishikawajima, etc., and it has also entered the domestic market, such as Dongfanghong and Dongfeng agricultural machinery. Mainly engaged in agricultural machinery manufacturing enterprises, coupled with more than 20 customer bases covered by Axle, Guhe Drive has basically established business cooperation with mainstream customers both at home and abroad. On the whole, the composition of various businesses is also more balanced, further reducing business risks.
In 2016, in the unfavorable trend of the industry, Guhe Drive still strengthened its investment in technological transformation, built a new test center and a new factory in Luancheng, newly added three sets of lathes, and transformed the assembly line to lay the foundation for follow-up development. Good foundation. Li Junnian said that improving manufacturing capability is still the key work of Guhe Drive in 2017, and the core manifestation of manufacturing capacity improvement is the consistency of product quality and the improvement and improvement of production efficiency.
To this end, Guhe Transmission will exert great efforts to implement the following four aspects. One is to reformulate product standards. Li Junnian asked the company's designers to pursue development ideas that combine product design and manufacturing, and formulate technical standards. Designers should often communicate with field personnel on the first line of the workshop to understand equipment and personnel conditions, master production technology and manufacturing levels, and design and development. Reasonable price and "can be manufactured" products. The second is to strengthen self-inspection intelligence and improve detection conditions. Li Junnian who visited Japan many times saw Japan's enterprises, and it was very touchy that the production process did not match the inspectors. Therefore, he also asked the operator to self-check the prescribed action in the company, and all employees establish a "zero defect in quality" consciousness. The third is the equipment upgrade guarantee. In the next step, the main parts and components of the Guhe transmission upgrade product will be self-manufactured. At present, the company has planned and designed 7 automated production lines. The company will gradually complete the progress and maturity of the upgraded products, and gradually realize the goal of multi-machine, multi-machine, multi-machine, and automation and intelligent production. The fourth is to strengthen the training of operators so that they can continue to break the inertia of thinking, enhance their ability to improve, and implement lean concepts that reflect everyday progress and improve every day.
Li Junnian, who was born from "actual combat," was very good at refining his work and demanding implementation. For example, he asked the company's manufacturing and management department to formulate operating standards and acceptance standards according to each procedure, and hang it in an eye-catching position so that the operator can see at a glance and complete all the inspection tools and tools required by the standard, so that the operator can easily Fast use, must strictly complete the job records; in the aspect of assembly, he requested to carry out technological transformation and upgrading according to the new product structure, with emphasis on increasing the visualization and program-controlled operation standards, and improve the ability of error prevention and correction; In terms of training, the company The management personnel must make publicity and training plans for the launch of each upgraded product, so that employees can know what to do and how to do it right.
Adhere to striving for progress and create an international brand

The share of goods is not in a hurry to develop new customers; in the aspect of product technology development, product development plans are completed and test verification is implemented, the market launch cycle is shortened, the enrollment and training of R&D personnel are continued, the design and development of gearbox projects are started at the right time, and the lifter is accelerated. Product development, the end of the year to achieve 30,000 units of various types of drive axle and transfer box sales target and output value.
In Li Junnian's view, the added value of traditional old products will go lower and higher in the past. The era of low value-added brought by high-volume high-energy consumption, low-quality, homogenous competition will soon be over. The introduction of Japanese experts, Not only did Guhe Drive go ahead of the industry, it also brought hope and confidence to the company's future development.

The brand and strive to enter the top five international brands, to achieve a true sense of international sales." Looking forward to the development of the next five years, Li Junnian said.
