Standardization refers to the formulation, publication, and implementation of standards for repetitive things and concepts in social practices such as economy, technology, science, and management, in order to achieve the best order and social benefits. Group standardization is the process of formulating and implementing company standards, as well as implementing relevant national, industry, and local standards, for repetitive things and concepts within the scope of company production and business activities, with the goal of achieving the best production and business order and economic benefits in the industry.
The activity of establishing common and reusable rules for actual or potential problems in order to achieve the best order within a certain range is called standardization. It includes the process of developing, publishing, and implementing standards. The important significance of standardization is to improve the applicability of products, processes, and services, prevent trade barriers, and promote technological cooperation.
Continuous development of the industry
After years of research and experimentation in China, the production and manufacturing technology of biomass particle forming equipment has become increasingly mature, and a relatively complete industrial and technical system for biomass particle forming equipment has been formed.
Lack of unified standards
However, the technology platform and basic research are relatively lagging behind, and empirical design still accounts for a considerable proportion. Product design lacks support from experimental and testing conditions. In recent years, through technology introduction, digestion and absorption, independent development, and joint venture production, the manufacturing technology of biomass particle forming equipment in China has developed rapidly. Although the manufacturing technology of biomass particle forming equipment in China has made significant progress, there is a lack of unified standards for equipment production.
Market mixed with good and bad
The market is mixed with fish and dragon, and the quality is uneven, with a large number of unqualified products flooding the market, resulting in low production, difficulty for investors to choose, and high production costs for after-sales accessories.
There is a saying that goes, first-class enterprises set standards, second-rate enterprises make brands, and third-rate enterprises make products. In this context, Shandong Bolida&Rotexmaster Machinery Co., Ltd., as an industry leader who has been deeply engaged in the industry for over a decade, deeply feels the responsibility is significant. The lack of standardized biomass pellet machines has restricted the development of the industry and prevented it from breaking trade barriers.
Shandong Rotexmaster Machinery Co., Ltd. and Shandong Bolida Machinery Co., Ltd. jointly drafted the "Group Standard for Biomass Particle Forming Machines" (hereinafter referred to as the "Group Standard"), which emerged as the times require. The issuance of this document fills the gap between national and industry standards. Unified equipment manufacturing standards are conducive to reducing carbon emissions in production, reducing production costs, increasing solid fuel production, improving the level of resource utilization of crop waste, and contributing to the "dual carbon" strategy, which is a milestone event in the industry!

Shandong Bolida&Yuguan Machinery Co., Ltd. has been striving for more than a decade to pursue its dreams and move forward with determination. Over the years, it has been measuring the development of the industry, constantly keeping up with the times, gathering momentum, meeting the qualifications for setting standards mentioned above, and reaching new heights, contributing to the development and adoption of group standards as an enterprise.
The Road to the Birth of Group Standards - Development Process
Mainly aimed at the development or modification of group standards for biomass particle forming machines, and submitting suggestions or plans for discussion and decision at the meeting.
The group standard approval for biomass particle forming machines is mainly based on the project application submitted by the demanders and developers of the standards, including the significance and purpose of formulating the standards, explanations of domestic and foreign situations, and descriptions of the main technical elements and parameters of the standards.
After the official establishment of the group standard, it is necessary to determine the drafting personnel. The work of the drafting personnel mainly includes: data collection, necessary experimental verification, domestic and foreign situation analysis, and content research and exploration.
