To offer more corporate technologists in Guangxi knowledge of new casting concepts, technologies and processes learned by the trainees sent to Germany, on January 22, Guangxi's high-skill talents with new casting technologies gathered in Yulin for a summary of the training in Germany. The event was held in the forms of experience sharing and achievement presentation. Present were leaders including Wang Liang, deputy director of the Guangxi Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs (GAFEA) and Luo Zongguang, deputy director of the Organization Department of the CPC Yulin Municipal Committee and director of the Yulin Municipal Bureau of Human Resources and Social Security (YMBLHRSS); Ye Bin, deputy Party secretary of Yuchai Machinery Co., Ltd. (Yuchai Machinery); etc.

The event was sponsored by the Department of Human Resources and Social Security and the Commission of Industry and Information Technology of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, organized by GAFEA, and co-organized by YMBLHRSS and Yuchai Machinery. Representatives of trainees sent to Germany, representatives of industry and information technology commissions in cities such as Yulin, Hechi and Beihai, as well as casting practitioners of over 30 manufacturers across Guangxi were present.
According to the source, to implement the requirements of "renovating traditional industries with new technologies, processes and methods to open up a road of new industrialization" proposed by the Party Committee and Government of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region at 2013 Guangxi Industrial Development Conference, and provide intellectual support to Guangxi's key economic fields, the Department of Human Resources and Social Security and the Commission of Industry and Information Technology of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region jointly organized a new casting technology training program for high-skill manufacturing talents in Germany this year. 16 trainees were sent to renowned German enterprises for learning.
The event included two sessions: experience sharing and result presentation. In the morning session of experience sharing, Luo delivered an address to briefly introduce Yulin's work on intelligence introduction in 2014. The work involved 7 intelligence introduction programs of 4 entities including Yuchai Machinery and Yulin Red Cross Hospital (YRCH), covering Yuchai Machinery's engine shock absorption and noise reduction of engines and lean manufacturing, YRCH's tumor chemotherapy technology improvement, etc. These efforts on intelligence introduction have made positive contributions to Yulin's economic and social development. He expected Yulin to create a new situation of intelligence introduction with the attention and support of Guangxi's relevant departments on the basis of learning and drawing advanced experience from other places.
Casting Technology Achievement Exhibition was held at Yuchai Practical Training Center
Ye spoke in the morning session. He said Yuchai attaches great importance to the development of casting technologies by investing heavily in equipment and technology upgrading. Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the foundry center have gone into production. With a designed annual output of 32,000 tons of castings, the Phase 3 workshop will go into production this year to manufacture large cylinder blocks and covers. Yuchai's casting technologies, equipment and processes have reached the advanced industrial level. The wall thickness of engine blanks, casting materials and energy consumption in production were reduced by nearly 50 percent, 10 percent and 8 percent respectively, and the casting rejection rate was controlled at around 1 percent.
The five technologists sent to Germany for the training were handpicked. They attended the training with projects and questions. The effect of learning is prominent and of significant benefit to Yuchai's progress in casting technologies and processes. Particularly, they have achieved good results in such aspect as thick-walled casting design, dimensional accuracy control and large casting design, Ye added.
In the session of experience sharing, four trainees including Huang Zonghui from Yuchai Machinery and Liu Jishui from Liuzhou Wuling Liuji Power Co., Ltd. shared their learning experience in such aspects as high-grade cast iron smelting and aluminum alloy casting control in the form of PPT.
Speaking of his experience from the training, Huang said Germany's casting industry has a solid foundation and a mature concept, but we are still in an extensive process of industry or enterprise standardization and perfection. In addition, Germany attaches great importance to occupational education, and has cultivated a multitude of high-level industrial workers so as to create the reputation of Germany's manufacturing. All these are worthy of being pondered over and learned by us.

The afternoon session of achievement presentation was held at Yuchai Practical Training Center. Yuchai Machinery's technologists including Yang Shuanghua and Li Guohua introduced and demonstrated casting technology achievements such as application of casting simulation and manual core making of T7A00 vent pipe. Following the introduction and demonstration, the participants enthusiastically viewed the casting technology innovation achievements presented by Yuchai.
