Taizhou Gerui is a recent new member of IMD online – and below here offers a blogged review from its web site –  – a little technical insight into a key aspect of electric vehicles – the power sensor ….

The power sensor of an electric vehicle is a combination of mechanical, electronic, software, and magnetic components. It can complete the setting of the storage function and zeroing of system errors through a single-chip microcomputer to ensure the matching with the entire vehicle and the consistency of the product. Its characteristics are as follows:-

Good safety: The maximum speed limit can be set according to the transmission ratio of the whole vehicle (such as: 25 km / h without power); when the riding speed is high, the power can be gradually reduced.

Hibernation function interface: The instrument component is equipped with a vehicle hibernation function interface: when the vehicle stops running for 5 minutes, it has a hibernation signal output.

Repeat settings: According to the size of the afterburner of different users, let users set up while riding, in order to meet the needs of different customers.

Setting system afterburner function: It can be changed according to the riding style of the user and the controller-motor matching: the compensation amount of torque parameter and the compensation amount of kinetic energy parameter.

Extend battery life by saving power: At the same time of leisure and fitness, increase the cruising range of the vehicle by nearly double. Because the current used is about half that of pure electric vehicles, the damage to the battery caused by high current discharge is avoided.

Chaoneng Electrical – a new IMD online member…quipment-factory/ – prides itself on its competitive pricing, varied, expert manufacturing and an attentive, pro-active, after-sales service. 

Blogged information on the business’ web site – highlights some informed expert views on their expert welding methods for plastic pipes ….

Plastic pip types increase

With the expansion of the application of plastic pipes, the types of plastic pipes have continued to increase. Now in addition to general PVC and polyethylene pipes, there are PVC core foamed pipes, PVC, PE double-wall corrugated pipes, aluminium-plastic composite pipes, PE pipe, plastic steel composite pipe, polyethylene silicon core pipe, etc etc…  Plastic pipe connection methods include: mechanical connection, hot-melt socket welding, hot-melt butt welding and spot welding. Among these, hot-melt butt welding and spot welding are the main connection methods for plastic pipes.

Hot melt welding

The hot melt welding machine uses the inner and outer surfaces of the heated object to heat the corresponding outer and inner surfaces of the welded plastic pipe and when it is being welded, so that it melts, quickly pull out the heated object, and then the pipe.

Quickly pierce the pipe, apply a certain amount of force, and thus achieve key welding after cooling. General hot melt acceptance welding is suitable for projects with a diameter of less than 125mm. The hot-melt butt welding involves the use of a hot-melt butt welder. First, heat the welding end face of two pipes (which must be cleaned or milled before welding) to a certain temperature, when it melts, then quickly attach it and apply a certain pressure until cool so that the two pipes are welded together.

Contact Heating and infrared radiation heating 

According to the contact method of the welding machine heating plate and the pipe being welded, it can be divided into two methods: contact heating and infrared radiation heating. When welding in accordance with the appropriate process, the tensile strength and pressure resistance of the Hankou area are appropriate or stronger than the pipe itself. Hot melt butt welding is suitable for welding of plastic pipes with a diameter greater than 90mm. It should be noted that during the welding process up to its cooling, it must withstand external impacts, and it is not possible to use any method for forced cooling.

Sales are increasing steadily across China and also internationally for all the product arenas operated by the thriving diversifying Pubo and Plastics Company. The business has impressive development plans for a still more successful trading future in all of its successful production arenas.


The PET pre-form and daily commodity moulds, produced by the Company’s team of well-qualified professionals and skilled operators are guaranteed.

The business has a set aim to become a leader in the competitive field of manufacturing injection moulds backed by its impressive, imported, high-precision, mechanical mould-making equipment.  Below is a blogging review on the Company web site as to the problems to be aware of when it comes to the external processing of injection moulds….. valuable guidance it is…..

There can be many problems in the quality of the mould parts in terms of external processing and supply. Not only the processing price but also the processing quality is a must to be considered. 

How to ensure the quality of processing while reducing costs is a challenge that every external processing enterprise needs to consider  

Here is a detailed introduction as to the issues that need to be reviewed and considered with regards to the external processing and supply of injection moulds.

Firstly, it is necessary to conduct an inspection, certification, and evaluation of the status of the processing unit being considered for mould supply, and make a review summary of the results.

Ensure that the injection moulding external processing unit has a 5s working environment to ensure it meets requirements of safe production.

Checks are needed as to whether the injection moulding external processing unit has quality consciousness and whether the work attitude is professional.

Whether the precision of the equipment for injection moulding and the processing capability, management ability, finishing ability meet the necessary production requirements. At the same time, the quality of the processing and the delivery timeline must be reviewed and determined.

Produce a clear, reasonable outsourcing process order according to the requirements of the required product drawings. Avoid verbal specification changes , and ensure the externally processed drawings are of good quality and meet requirements.

After receiving the products made by the outsourcing processing factory, there should be a qualified, quality inspection before acceptance of the products. This inspection should clearly establish an external processing standard of the products, and there thorough so that the mould can be effectively guaranteed. Such tests have the advantage of aiding external companies to improve their process and product quality delivery.

There is certainly no reducing of reducer use in all kinds of industry – good news indeed for Laifual Harmonic…

March 7th – Zhejiang Laifual Harmonic Gear Drive Corporation Ltd (ZLHD) is a professional successful company, which is engaged in research, design and production of harmonic and precision gear reducer  products, all of which have the characteristics of high stability, high precision, large torque, long life,  and a large speed ratio as well as a small sizing essential for most effective and ease of use.

Laifual Harmonic has acquired a number of national ‘invention’ patents for  its harmonic gear drive, backlash gearbox and robot reducer products. Below, blogged on the company’s web site is some guiding information reference the role status of the Reducer in industry today…. 

The Reducer is a mechanical transmission to the fore in many areas of the national economy – the product categories involved in the industry include various types of gear reducers, planetary gear reducers and worm reducers, as well as various special transmissions, such as speed increase devices, speed regulators. 

These devices use various types of compound transmissions, including flexible transmissions. Products and services using reducers include metallurgy, nonferrous metals, coal, building materials, ships, water conservancy, electric power, engineering machinery and petrochemical industries.

China’s reducer industry has a history of nearly 40 years. It has been widely used in various fields of the national economy and national defence industry. There are many others – food, light industry, electric machinery, construction machinery, metallurgical machinery, cement machinery, environmental protection machinery, electronic appliances,  etc etc etc……road building machinery, water conservancy machinery, chemical machinery, mining machinery, transportation machinery and so on …For sure there is a more than strong demand for reducer products….

This testing market with huge potential has given rise to fierce industry competition. In the brutal market competition, enterprises in the reducer industry must accelerate the elimination of backward production capacity, vigorously develop high-efficiency energy-saving products, make full use of the national energy-saving product benefits to the people  policy opportunities, and increase product renewal. 

There is a need to adjust product structure and pay attention to national industrial policies, in order to deal with the complex  and changing  economic environment and maintain a good momentum of development.

Yadu produce quality effective tarpaulin products – check out what ‘ya-do’ to keep them that way!

March 7th – One of the biggest plastic product companies in China, Shanghai Yadu Plastic was formed in 1996. It is now a joint venture enterprise, established by Chinese and foreign business partners. The company’s staff rota now tops over 200 employees, including 50 production technicians and a modern-thinking, effective management team.

A new IMD  online member,Yadu operates the latest advanced technology in various aspects of its production and has now built a thriving world-wide market covering more than 30 countries and regions.

The key products of the company are PE and PP woven coating fabrics used for the likes of tarpaulins, livestock sheds shelter sheets, hay tarps, rubber roofing covers and more. Products are waterproof and fire retardant.

A trade focused ‘read of interest’ found on the Yadu web site blog highlights a key point of interest – namely how to effectively look after and maintain tarpaulins – – a lead product of Yadu –  when it rains or when it is stored away …

If tarpaulins are not properly maintained or stored, discolouration will occur. In fact, when using PE tarpaulins, try to avoid contact between tarpaulins and any strong, stain delivering materials. To clean a tarpaulin, you can apply toothpaste or white chalk powder and if carefully evenly applied these products will further enhance the clean finish effect of the tarpaulin. Always let it fully dry before storing away  – a must to prevent discolouration. 

When it comes to damage to a PE tarpaulin, a special tarpaulin glue is generally used if there are holes or small-area tears. In the past, wax thread knitting was used for repairs, which was not only costly but also slow. Now with adhesives, tarpaulin repair is much simpler.  The specific method is as follows – if it is a leak-type damage – this is best tackled using two patch pieces cut in advance for replacement. For loophole repair fabrics, it is best to round the corners when cutting. First on the outside of the tarpaulin, the fabric repair patch is pasted preferably uncoated, which is more wear-resistant. Apply the glue evenly, especially around the edges, and then apply the repair patch . You can also re-apply sealant at the seams. Then repair the other side in the same way. In addition to the above methods, use a file to rub the cut tarpaulin about 2cm nearer the edge which will make the repair more successful. 

As tarpaulins are all about sheltering from the wind and rain, it is a fact that they can gain a slightly mouldy smell over time.

Many who use tarpaulins know that if possible after a rain-soaking, the tarpaulin should not be stored away to avoid a mould smell building up on the tarpaulin. If in these circumstances a product is left stored for a longer time, a mould may then grow on the tarpaulin due to the humidity build-up that can occur. In order to prevent this the right thing to do is to wipe the tarpaulin off with warm soapy water and a sponge and an appropriate cleaning agent before storing. The best recipe for mould removal is to mix a glass of brine, a glass of lemon juice, and a glass of gallon water, and knead the mixed solution together over the mildew. Doing so will achieve impressive even unexpected results – there now you know! 

The vital issue of re-cycling within Telecommunications comes still further into focus….

March 7th – Established in 1992, Hangzhou Dongxing Telecommunication Material Co Ltd, located in Hangzhou,China, is a specialist producer of high quality telecommunication materials – namely products such as Aluminium Foil tape, Aluminium AC and Fire-Resist foils and ‘Free edge’ and Copper foils.

The business also markets foil products for household & catering. It’s most recently developed new products are a range of foil ‘flame retardant’ and waterproof materials to be widely used in electronic equipment and also on building projects.

research and production

The Dongxing Telecommunication Material – a new IMD online member now – is an appointed China supplier to Amphenol-tuchel Electronics Gmbh, a world famous Telecommunication group and holds the ISO9001-2000 and ISO 14000 certifications for specialism in research and production.

The Company has a flourishing trade across China and also has a growing international market-place for its products – telecommunications; catering and household – to the U.S.A, U.K., Germany, South Korea, Japan, Canada and South-East Asia….. and more.

Spotted on the Dongxing Telecommunication company’s web site – an eye-catching industry news blog on cable re-cycling – a vital discussion point with many working within  telecommunications industries …

The story is that a lead cabling company is now using re-cycling cross-linked polyethylene used in cable insulation material for  insulation of its power cables. The company said this is a “significant step” in its ambition to reduce the carbon footprint of its low-medium- and high-voltage power cable solutions. Power cables are the backbone of the global power grids being crucial to the transition to renewable energy. For sure, indicate the NKT Company, the focus on sustainability in the power cable industry is constantly increasing.

The recycling process has been developed through a project with the Swedish research institute RISE IVF, AXJO Plastic and material specialist Borealis. In the past few years, NKT has industrialised the process of recycling XLPE in close collaboration with AXJO Plastic, which is now manufacturing cable drums from the recycled XLPE material. For sure it is said the benefits of the recycling are clear!

The material costs are significantly reduced compared with new raw materials and approximately two tonnes of CO2 are saved for every tonne of recycled material the company says. With recycling of XLPE from production sites in Sweden, Denmark and Germany say the Company, a significant step to decrease the carbon footprint and ensure a sustainable lifecycle of our power cable portfolio is being achieved.

Insulation often accounts for a substantial part of its power cables, and so NKT is working closely with material supplier Borealis to discover and develop sustainable solutions with XLPE material for the power cable industry. A stronger focus on sustainability in the supply chain is a natural step when reducing the overall carbon footprint of our power cables. With XLPE being an important material for high-performing power cables, it is good to see a closer collaboration with key supplier Borealis to continue to drive sustainable XLPE solutions.

‘Best foot forward’ for the fast-growing specialist Zhuji sock machinery company….

March 6th – The Zhuji Guanghui Machinery Co Ltd – another new member of IMD online –  is located in the “hometown of socks”- in Datang Town Industrial Park in Zhuji. The business is a modern enterprise. It is backed by innovative research and development and specialises in the creation and assembly of machinery for the production of hosiery.  


The Company’s well-used and respected machinery products have been developed through innovative expertise and technology and are fully supported by advanced testing procedures. A leading product of the business which is of particular note is the highly successful, in demand, domestic computer flat, terry dual-use socks machine. 


The progress and development of the business’ expert manufacturing techniques has enabled Zhuji hosiery machinery products to achieve wide recognition for their quality, effective design and reliable performance.

Led by its successful progressive management, Zhuji machinery products today compare favourably with any similar machines manufactured either in China or overseas. The Company’s thriving overseas markets currently includes The Middle East and South East Asia and also various other countries and Regions 

Here is a ‘quickie’ blog observation note ….regarding the historical development of the sock knitting machine – the forerunner- to an extent at least perhaps  – of the state of the art sock-producing machinery of the Zhuji Company…..

The first sock knitting machine was invented by the an Englishman, Mr Lee in 1589. It used crochet to produce shaped socks. In 1849, the single needle circular socks machine appeared and the tongue needle began to be used in small calibre within circular machines. 

Originally these machines produced tailored socks, but it was not until 1857 that weaving socks with pocket heels and toe caps began to be produced. In 1864, in Britain a Mr W. Cottonton invented the Cottonton socks machine -which was a crochet flat knitting machine. 

In 1900, double-cylinder circular socks machines emerged and knitted rib socks were introduced as double-headed tongue needles were applied to small-calibre circular-type machines. The neck top of the socks tended to be knitted by a special part of the hosiery machine, or even transferred to a special styled machine where it could be effectively manually finished. Hosiery, heeled socks and socks with soles and reinforced loops are now all knitted by modern socks machines.

‘Belting good’ products… …admired across the world, as Sanjia goes on expanding.. exporting and achieving…!

See this company’s entry in the IMD HERE.

International status 

Sanjia company products have an impressive home and international status and are sold throughout numerous provinces, cities and regions in China, and also exported to more than 50 countries and Regions world-wide including Europe, The United States, The Middle East, South East Asia, Africa and Australia. 

The Sanjia business – a recent new IMD online member – backs its exceptional quality production expertise, efficiency and technological innovation with attentive customer service, both at home and abroad. It is dedicated to a clear commitment to progress all of its business solution solving activities progressively so that it further develops ongoing momentum of its current achievements. Here below, Sanjia experts review key bonding issues relating to the heat resistant issue as it relates to conveyor belts …..

The bonding process of heat-resistant conveyor belts in production is one of the important factors affecting the bonding effect of conveyor belts. If the bonding process is not proper, it is easy to cause the heat-resistant conveyor belt to tear and open, which greatly shortens the service life. The following conveyor belt manufacturers take a detailed look at the bonding process of heat-resistant conveyor belts.

The heat-resistant conveyor belt agent bonding process generally includes surface treatment, gluing, drying, gluing, curing, etc. of the adherend, which is relatively complicated and has many influencing factors. Therefore, the bonding must be performed according to the correct process; Properties, which share interlayer cations and are compact with each other, a series of composite materials of clay polymer nano-rubbers with excellent properties are prepared, and the so-called intercalation compounding inserts monomers or polymer molecules into the layered silicate In the nano-space between the layers, the layered silicate is peeled into nano-structure units or micro-regions by polymerising or shearing force and uniformly dispersed in the polymer matrix.

The direct adhesion method of heat-resistant conveyor belt refers to the method of directly adding adhesives to the rubber compound and curing the interface by vulcanisation to achieve bonding. Commonly used direct bonding systems mainly include methylene white, organic cobalt salts, and over-vulcanisation stability Agent, white carbon black and other systems, antioxidants can improve the adhesion of rubber and steel wire while protecting, and cobalt salt of organic acid can act as an adhesion promoter when bonding rubber to brass or galvanized steel cord or rope.

The inter-calation composite method is a method for preparing polymer layered silicate nano-composites. First, a monomer drum polymer is inserted between the layered silicate sheets treated with an inter-calator, thereby destroying the silicate sheets. The layer structure makes it peel off to become the basic unit of layered silicate, and is evenly dispersed in the polymer matrix, so as to realise the composite of polymer and clay-like layered silicate on the nanometer scale.
