At the Printing and Dyeing Industry Service Center, the "Digital Twin Factory" module in the "Brains of the Weaving Printing and Dyeing Industry" is effectively operating. The practical business and production scenarios are simulated, analyzed, traced, compared, and calculated, and product quality, cost, and other information are fully traced. Our digital twin visualization system can provide data support for the decision-making of enterprise managers, "said Wang Tao, the head of Keqiao's" Brains for the Printing and Dyeing Industry ". As of now, the "Brains for Weaving, Printing and Dyeing Industry" built by Keqiao has been launched at the Provincial Industrial Brain Talent Center, with a total of 20 usage scenarios connected to digital supply chains, equipment cloud connectivity, intelligent production scheduling, and more than 1700 enterprises in various fields such as weaving, printing and dyeing, machinery, and environmental protection. Among them, printing and dyeing enterprises have fundamentally achieved full coverage, promoting an increase of over 8% in industry output power, reducing energy consumption by more than 10%, and increasing the yield rate by more than 15%.
Under the development mode of "Internet plus" and "Intelligent+", Keqiao's textile printing and dyeing enterprises are speeding up their speed on the digital and intelligent track. Intelligent transformation has brought about power improvement and environmental improvement, "said Xu Yegen, Deputy General Manager of Yingfeng Technology Company. In the past, when manual color matching was done, a slight mistake could cause dye overflow and sewage to flow horizontally. Nowadays, with just input commands from the operating console, the system can accurately retrieve the corresponding dyes and actively transport them to the corresponding dye tanks, reducing dye waste. Baofang Printing and Dyeing Co., Ltd. has invested over 10 million yuan in digital transformation. Only one improvement in the dyeing process directly reduces water consumption by 20%, saving tens of millions of yuan in annual costs.
In recent years, Shaoxing has attached importance to the high-quality development of technology enabled manufacturing industry, and promoted the further upgrading of Textile manufacturing. The annual investment of printing and dyeing enterprises in Keqiao district in intelligent technology transformation is over 400 million yuan. Currently, about 45% of enterprises have a color matching system, 80% of enterprises have a semi-active and active dye additive weighing and transportation system, 100% of enterprises have a functional and pollution detection system, and more than 70% of enterprises have a production, production, sales, and inventory management system. In 2022, Keqiao Textile achieved an output value of 129.6 billion yuan, an increase of 7.6%, accounting for 55.8% of the total industrial output value above the designated area; Textile exports exceed 100 billion yuan, accounting for 77.7% of the total export volume in the region.
In the new era and new journey, the Keqiao textile industry insists on transformation and upgrading without leaving behind. It is actively exploring the new possibility of "starting from scratch", constantly climbing to a new height of "people have their own skills", breaking away from the rigid image of "traditional industry" and "sunset industry", accelerating its progress towards advanced manufacturing and high value-added industries, and striving to achieve high-quality development.
