(1) Application of new materials
The umbrella canopy materials and umbrella frame materials involved in the manufacture of traditional sunny umbrellas are light industry and heavy industry products respectively. In recent years, umbrella cloth materials have been updated, especially for sunshades. Only UV-resistant fabrics have silver glue, satin, pearl glue and impact cloth , Laser punching, yarn-dyed lattice, polyester interwoven and so on; dozens of plastic umbrella fabrics as typical fast-moving consumer goods have also developed from ordinary PVC materials to environmentally friendly POE materials. In terms of umbrella frame materials, to meet the needs of portable umbrella products, from traditional steel bones to aluminum alloy bones, glass fiber bones, carbon fiber bones and even titanium alloy bones. New materials such as carbon fiber, aerospace aluminum, TEFLON, silicon-coated cloth, and CORDURA nylon are widely used in high-end umbrellas, and their functions have been elevated to a new level. It is foreseeable that the application of new materials will further promote the upgrading of sunny umbrella products and improve the quality of life of the public.
(2) Product design and development technology
In recent years, the umbrella products have made great progress in the structure of the umbrella frame, especially the windproof design, even the anti-bone design of the umbrella frame that is not easy to break even if it is overturned in windy weather.
Umbrella cloth style, color and umbrella frame structure design also use more three-dimensional computer-aided design (CAD), combined with hand-painted design, optimize sample manufacturing and trial production process, making the appearance of sunny umbrella products more diversified and lighter structure It is firm, the packaging is more exquisite, and the update cycle is shorter.
(3) Product manufacturing process
The umbrella industry is a labor-intensive manufacturing industry, especially the sewing of finished umbrellas has long been dominated by needlework, and the overall degree of mechanization is low. In recent years, a series of umbrella-making equipment such as computerized open-cutting machines, computerized high-speed single-line vehicles, computerized umbrella top machines, tapping machines, bead tail machines, automatic pipe welding machines, slotted automatic mold forming machine tools and other umbrella manufacturing processes The widespread use of the product has improved the production efficiency of components and reduced labor intensity, and to a certain extent represents the level of the world umbrella industry.
