it is difficult to find the house in the Chengyang ancient temple village if it is not led by the Qingdao daily / Green newspaper. It is difficult to believe that the "broken copper scrap iron", which is piled up by the hospital, is of such high value. Numerical control machine tool and industrial automation.
, however, in such a seemingly unattractive place, the post - 80s boy, Wang Dong, with a quiet and unyielding heart, persisted silently for more than three years and finally developed "the only domestic independent R & D, proprietary intellectual property rights and products comparable to the highest level of German and Swiss industries." Product ".
Wang Dong, who has worked in several machinery factories in Qingdao for many years, has the inward nature of all science and technology skills, but it opens the "box" model in a flash. "CNC machine tools also have a rapid development stage, but still face a poor competitive situation in the high-end products," Wang Dong said. "A few years ago, in the process of repairing the equipment to customers, it was found that the price of the products produced by customers was more than 10 times the same as the price of the same kind abroad. There are good processing equipment, and foreign equipment is about three to four million, and its after-sale services and accessories are expensive, which is difficult for ordinary enterprises to bear.
so, with the work experience accumulated over the years and an aggressive heart, Wang Dong began to study the NC peripheral grinder of the transposition blade. "This is the machine for manufacturing machines. "." At that time, Wang Dong did not think how long it would be able to develop, how much money needed to be invested, how long the profits would be considered by the ordinary entrepreneurs, and the good product was his original starting point, and he had become a "guest" in front of the trend.
wedding gift money for R & D funds
"those" broken copper scrap "seen in the door are the economic pillars of R & D." In a word, Wang Dong had a little helplessness. Like most startups, the biggest difficulty Wang Dong encountered was lack of capital. At first Wang Dong took out his savings for a few years and 300 thousand yuan to borrow from relatives and friends. But because of the long development cycle, capital investment, and the unknowability of the results, the only venture partner of Wang Dong was under pressure to give up the research and development of the project after four months. As a result, Wang Dong constantly relied on enterprises to repair and transform equipment, in exchange for funding research and development. At the beginning of
2013, Wang Dong married. To save money, the wedding was very simple, because Wang Dong put most of her parents' wedding money into the research and development of the surrounding grind. "My husband is very incompetent to give his wife a decent wedding, his father is also very incompetent, the son's milk powder often has not fallen." In retrospect, Wang Dong was still a bit of a self reproach.
in the past few years, Wang Dong almost eat in the factory, draw sketches, buy materials to the old market, processing parts, repeated disassembly and refitting structure, consulting the products of domestic and foreign equipment, consult the experts and scholars in the industry. During the R & D, a business owner, who was interested in buying equipment, took an old expert in the industry to see the progress of the equipment research and development. The old expert looked at the full parts and looked at the more than 20 year old man and shook his head. "Young man do not go on research and development, this project has been in several VCs for many years, but finally no fruit and end, your capital and technology can not keep up, do not continue to do meaningless investment." After listening to the old expert, Wang Dong was deeply meditating. "If we give up now, it means that R & D fails, so much energy and money will be put into the East, that the family and the friends who have been supporting themselves can not be dealt with, they can't do things halfway and continue to go down."
over the past three years, Wang Dongzhen's research and development has succeeded in the first generation of translocation blades around the grinding machine, and the product specifications reached relevant international standards. When the old experts came back, they also extended their thumbs. After the equipment was delivered to customers, they were also confirmed by the customers and the specialists in the industry.
the heart of the creator is to make more and better products
"only the talent who has experienced the venture knows the hardship of the business", which Wang Dong often talks about. In the early days of starting a business, Wang Dong was in an order for an order, and he set up his own company, the Braun Stone smart technology company in Qingdao, to expand its business.
the introduction of talented people at the same time. There are many system engineers who have worked in the Beijing and German SIEMENS systems for many years as the core R & D personnel. They jointly participate in the research and development of the second generation and third generation CNC perimeter grinder. The newly developed third generation indexable CNC peripheral grinding machine has received many orders from internationally renowned large enterprises.
but Wang Dong is not satisfied, they continue to visit the investigation, research materials, and start the research and development of the next generation of new products. "From creative to product process is very difficult, need great manpower, energy, capital; from product to entrepreneurship is also a huge ridge, 'create guest' fire, but how to succeed, is a serious problem to think about. To create more and better products is the core of a customer.
