In order to strengthen the synergy between new energy vehicles, drive motors and rare earth permanent magnet materials, and promote the joint research of upstream and downstream enterprises, on January 5, 2018, China Association of Automobile Manufacturers and China Rare Earth Industry Association organized a new energy vehicle drive in Beijing. The inaugural cooperation mechanism for the upstream and downstream cooperation of rare earth permanent magnet materials for motors. Director Li Wei of the Raw Materials Industry Department and Deputy Director of the Equipment Industry Department, Mr. Guo Guochun attended the meeting and delivered a speech. Mr. Luo Tiejun, Inspector of the Raw Materials Industry Division, presided over the meeting.
Li Wei pointed out that the drive motor is the "heart" of new energy vehicles, and rare earth permanent magnet materials are the preferred materials for driving motors. The rare earth permanent magnet drive motor can greatly reduce the weight of the motor, reduce the size of the motor, and improve work efficiency. The establishment of an upstream and downstream cooperation mechanism is conducive to opening up the barriers between the development of new energy vehicles, drive motors and rare earth permanent magnet materials, and achieving mutual benefit and win-win in the entire industry chain. He said that the current state attaches great importance to the development of new materials industry, which brings unprecedented opportunities for the development of upstream and downstream cooperation mechanisms for rare earth permanent magnet materials. We will seize the opportunity and take advantage of the trend to focus on the key aspects of R&D, production and application of rare earth permanent magnet materials in the field of new energy vehicle drive motors, and strengthen the information communication, increase policy support, promote cooperative development, and promote standard setting. Full support, and strive to form a shelf-type magnetic material product that can be directly selected by the motor industry. Li Wei emphasized that the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers and the China Rare Earth Industry Association, as the leader unit, must conscientiously perform their duties, carefully organize, refine the key tasks and time nodes, break the boundaries between industries and industries, and build platforms. Focusing on research, planning, cooperative development, and construction systems, the new energy vehicles, drive motors, and rare earth permanent magnet materials have truly become the new highlights of manufacturing powers and become the leading industry in the global manufacturing industry.
In his speech, Qu Guochun pointed out that in recent years, China's new energy automobile industry has achieved remarkable results, but compared with traditional fuel vehicles, it has not formed a competitive advantage in terms of vehicle cost performance and ease of use. European and American multinational auto companies are also tight. Keeping up, it is necessary to consolidate the first-mover advantage of new energy vehicles. Establishing an upstream and downstream cooperation mechanism is both necessary and timely for promoting product performance improvement and scale application. He stressed that through the mechanism innovation, vehicle traction, the synergy innovation and good cooperation of the development of key components and magnet materials for the development of new energy vehicles and motors will be formed to solve the problem of low utilization rate of permanent magnet materials and standard systems. Perfect problems, in turn, drive motor performance improvement and cost reduction. Qi Guochun hopes that the Automobile Industry Association and the Rare Earth Industry Association should fully mobilize the enthusiasm of vehicle manufacturers, motor companies and magnetic materials enterprises, and promote the coordinated development of member units within the framework of cooperation mechanisms; strengthen trend tracking and research, and strengthen the key core of upstream and downstream industry chains. Technical coordination; strengthening the construction of the standard system, through the implementation of standards, forced the industry level to improve.
At the meeting, Zheng Gang, Secretary of the Party Committee and General Manager of BAIC New Energy, delivered a speech on behalf of the co-organizer of the conference. Xu Yanhua, deputy secretary general of China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, introduced the cooperation plan and related formation of the cooperation mechanism. Mr. Yuan Chengzhen, deputy general manager of Beiqi New Energy, Dr. Cai Wei from Jingjin Electric, and Academician Li Wei from China Steel Research Institute have made new developments in domestic and international new energy vehicles, development of automotive drive motors at home and abroad, and future development of rare earth permanent magnet materials. Requirements, special reports on rare earth permanent magnet new materials and the development of permanent magnet motors for vehicles.
BAIC New Energy, Yutong Bus, Geely Automobile, BYD Auto, Jingjin Electric, Shanghai Electric Drive, China Auto Research, Zhongke Sanhuan, Ningbo Yunsheng, Steel Research Institute, Research Institute, Ningbo Materials Institute, Northern Rare Earth, Representatives from more than 20 units including Xiamen Tungsten, Suzhou Green Control and Harbin Institute of Technology attended the meeting. During the meeting, delegates also visited the exhibition hall of Beiqi New Energy Company and the new energy vehicle replacement device.
