At the executive meeting of the State Council, it was clearly proposed to focus on railway and other advantageous fields to connect with the “the Belt and Road”. The meeting required that we should focus on areas with comparative advantages, such as railways, power, communications, building materials and engineering machinery, meet the needs of different regions, especially countries along the “the Belt and Road”, take state-owned and private enterprises as the main body, flexibly adopt investment, engineering construction, technical cooperation and other methods, promote the export of equipment and other products, and promote the employment expansion and economic development of relevant countries. Obviously, in the continuous promotion of the national strategy of “the Belt and Road”, with the continuous development of infrastructure construction, aluminum processing profiles are widely used in many fields, such as high-speed rail, power, engineering machinery, etc., and aluminum processing is booming and ushering in a new outlet.
The reason why the “the Belt and Road” can be steadily promoted is that according to the implementation of relevant plans and the authorization of the State Council, the “the Belt and Road” will take transportation infrastructure as a breakthrough to achieve connectivity in Asia. The “the Belt and Road” will bring many changes to the overseas M & a market of Chinese enterprises. Among them, high-speed rail, power, communication, engineering machinery, automobile and aircraft manufacturing and electronic assembly and processing will attract a large amount of capital.
The national opinions clearly support qualified private enterprises to carry out resource development, project contracting and sales network construction in countries and regions along the line. We will support ethnic minority areas in seizing the major opportunity of the implementation of the “the Belt and Road” strategy, promoting infrastructure construction and urbanization, and comprehensively raising the level of an open economy.
Facts have proved that “the Belt and Road” has played a leading and exemplary role for state-owned enterprises. From the frequency and intensity of the approval of infrastructure projects by the national development and Reform Commission, we can see that the government attaches importance to promoting the construction of infrastructure projects. The number of capital construction projects approved alone is countless, and the total investment has exceeded 100 billion yuan, which has increased the approval of capital construction projects. The breakthrough of infrastructure projects is mainly to coordinate with China’s overall planning for the next ten years. The relevant infrastructure projects approved by the national development and Reform Commission also focus directly or indirectly on the “the Belt and Road” and other major strategies.
At the initial stage of the “the Belt and Road” construction, it will mainly focus on “road connectivity”, that is, infrastructure, transportation and other projects; At the beginning of development in high-speed railway, port, construction machinery and other fields, aluminum profiles are widely used. That is to say, in the tide of infrastructure construction of “the Belt and Road”, aluminum profile processing enterprises are rapidly ushering in new development opportunities.
In recent years, aluminum alloy car bodies have been widely used in the field of rail vehicles, especially in the field of high-speed rail. The density of aluminum alloy is about one third of that of steel, and the alloy formed by adding certain elements has higher strength than steel alloy. Therefore, while the strength and rigidity meet the safety requirements of high-speed railway cars, the use of aluminum alloy can greatly reduce the weight of high-speed railway cars. Therefore, aluminum alloy materials have been widely used in domestic high-speed train carriages.
Experts in the industry pointed out that high-speed trains with a speed of more than 300 kilometers per hour must use aluminum alloy materials, and the carriages of trains with a speed of more than 350 kilometers must all use aluminum profiles except the chassis. At present, among the four types of crhi, CRH2, CRH3 and CRH5 used in the EMUs of China’s passenger dedicated railway, except that the crhi type car body is made of stainless steel, the other three types of EMUs are made of aluminum alloy. The “the Belt and Road” strategy will create huge opportunities for China’s high-speed rail to go global, which also means that there is only one high-speed rail in the “the Belt and Road” and there is a huge demand for high-end aluminum processing products.
In addition to railways and new energy vehicles, there is also a large demand for high-end aluminum profiles in other transportation facilities such as airports, ships, ports and highways under the “the Belt and Road” plan. For example, aluminum plates and profiles are also widely used in airport runways, aluminum curtain walls, marine and vehicle containers, among which aluminum profiles with large discontinuities account for more than 45%.
As the world’s leading R & D manufacturer of high-quality aluminum extrusion products, Hongying aluminum produces high-precision, large cross-section and high added value industrial aluminum profiles. Business scope: in addition to being the main supplier of high-speed rail and automotive aluminum profiles, its products are also applied to shipbuilding, marine engineering, aerospace, mechanical equipment, power engineering, wind power and other fields.
It is worth mentioning that Hongying aluminum alloy has been widely used in various shipbuilding for its light weight, corrosion resistance, good formability and weldability. At present, aluminum alloy has been increasingly used in military speedboats, passenger ships, cargo ships and yachts in China. In addition, it is precisely because of these advantages that aluminum alloy can be found on the helicopter stand, landing gear, gangway, mobile passenger passage, the “wings” of wind power generation equipment, ship splints and hull siding. With the continuous promotion of the project, the demand for high-end aluminum extruded profiles will show explosive growth.
