China’s fast growing infrastructure cannot be separated from “machinery pillars”

China has long been the largest machine manufacturer around the globe, occupying 12 seats among the world’s top 50 machinery enterprises. A series of self-developed equipment has cemented a leading role for the already strong manufacturer in the global construction machinery industry.

The super pump truck with an 86-meter-long arm boasts three world records, namely the longest arm, the largest number of arm segments and the fastest pumping speed. These domestically built pump trucks have replaced all imported ones.

China became the fourth country to start owning 12-ton loaders. Such loaders made in China can scoop and load 1,400 tons within an hour.

Owing to the creative dual drive system and the tunnel heading machines they are usually called “underground aircraft carriers”. They solve frequent breakdown issues that have haunted excavating for half a century. The domestic brand has already taken two thirds of the global market within the past 10 years.

Ship lifts with super strength can lift ships over dams in as little as 40 minutes. Thanks to this lift, ships loads that can pass over the Three Gorges Dam along the Yangtze River have increased by 6 million tons yearly.

Twelve production lines make for a super manufacturer of cements, the main material for construction. Each production line produces 15 thousand tons every day and the roll squeezers last10 times than the life of traditional machines. They have been adopted by over 60 percent of production lines globally.

The self-developed third-generation jack platform boasts stability to withstand strong gusts of wind and the capacity to complete an entire floor’s construction within four days. The almost 40-meter-high machine provides strong support for the safe construction of super high-rise building, over 100 meters high with at least 40 layers.

The sequel documentary “The Pillars of a Great Power II” made by China Central Television tells the story of China’s high-end manufacturing and the more than 60 pillars of equipment that contribute to make it a strong manufacturing country. The equipment featured in these episodes demonstrates why China’s infrastructure has amazed many people including the American entrepreneur Elon Musk.
