The design of the modern car consists of several thousand parts and every year becomes more complicated, due to the increased safety requirements, comfort and quality of cars presented by consumers. When developing cars, modern automakers focus their attention on the engineering of the interior / exterior of the car and its production, and individual assembly plants, at best concentrate on stamping, welding, painting and assembling cars. Therefore, the production of cars cannot be imagined without suppliers of automotive components. Moreover, specialized companies for the production of auto components will create and develop individual auto components better, faster and cheaper than the car manufacturer. have a more extensive experience in certain areas (electrician, brake systems, security systems, expendable components (filters), etc.).

About 70% of the budget for purchases of automakers are the cost of purchased auto parts; and if we consider the costs of raw materials, materials and components directly used for the production of cars, then about 90% will be auto components. Thus, the development of the component base should be one of the strategic directions for the automaker. The automotive components manufacturing industry is now the most problematic segment of the Russian automotive industry. Russian suppliers are mostly focused on Russian car plants with an outdated model range and mainly produce old products, not seeing the need to develop component production due to continued demand for old products. Therefore, the market of auto components practically did not develop. According to various estimates, no more than 5% of Russian enterprises producing automotive components comply with international standards that establish requirements for quality management systems, as well as other requirements for quality and production organization. Only 44 foreign manufacturers from the component industry opened their business in Russia.

In the segment of manufacturers of automotive components in Russia there are three main types of manufacturers:

  • Russian manufacturers of automotive components: they are mainly focused on the production of components for existing and obsolete Russian models; have mainly a morally and physically worn out technological base; lack of new developments and technologies, professional management; do not have sufficient investment resources and engineering skills to develop new types of products and expand the client base; have a low level of quality that does not allow to supply products to international producers.
  • Joint ventures of Russian and foreign manufacturers of automotive components (such as ZF, Faurecia, Delphi, etc.): have relatively modern production technologies and equipment obtained from international partners; focus on the production of technologically simple components with low added value (bumpers, harnesses, lighting equipment, etc.) developed by international partners, or on the licensed assembly of complex components with a low level of localization of subcomponents (gearbox, engines, etc.); practically have no rights to IP, their own engineering and R & D; They have a narrow specialization, usually in a small assortment of products from one to two categories of components.
  • Foreign manufacturers of auto components (for example, Lear, Bosch, Federal Mogul, etc.) are relatively new producers on the Russian market: they have a low level of localization, both subcomponents and raw materials; have a narrow specialization and undeveloped customer base, which leads to a small scale of production; are oriented to supply in the domestic market; focus on technologically simple components with low added value (for example: seats, candles, exhaust systems, etc.).

Thanks to highly qualified specialists and a specialized monitoring and supervision system, IBC Plastic is active in the automotive sector and supplies equipment for all types of production. For many years the company has been developing and producing solutions that meet the requirements of its customers in the automotive and auto parts sectors, as well as through partnerships with other specialized manufacturers of process equipment.

The main types of technological equipment supplied to the automotive sector and the production of auto parts:

  • Centralized systems for loading and drying raw materials - with a large number of injection molding machines in any production of automotive parts, centralized systems can significantly reduce production waste when transporting materials, and qualitatively prepare the raw materials before processing, thereby completely eliminate the marriage;
  • Grippers for robots - big assortment produced auto parts involves a lot of complex molds, each of which produces only one kind, as a rule, complex or overall production in order to reduce the amount of manual labor and provide quick removal of products from the mold used for the Grips robots.
  • Industrial robots and automation - none of the manufactures producing automotive components and cars cannot do without robots, today the automation level of such plants has reached 90% and continues to grow, Cartesian and anthropometric robots perform operations on removal and packing of plastic car parts, body welding, etc.
  • The centralized cooling system with two independent temperatures - in the production of plastic auto parts, thermoplastic automata are usually used, the feature of the thermoplastic automatic cooling systems is that they have two cooling zones: hydraulics and a mold, hydraulics require temperatures from +30 to +50 degrees, which is The rule is provided with the help of a cooler or as they are also called dry cooling towers, a chiller is needed to cool the mold, as it requires a temperature of +7 to +15 degrees, and in some In other cases mold thermostats are used, for the exact temperature on the mold
  • Grinders and shredders - are used for the processing of defective products and gates cast during the casting process on cold-channel molds.
  • Belt conveyors are necessary for storing finished products of robots on them after removal from the mold.
