This record smashes the previous one of 5000 non-stop working hours.

"Until recently, Chinese construction machinery components were absent from the mining powerhouse of Western Australia," said Wang Min, chairman of XCMG.

"We've strived to master core component technologies to give our products major advantages in the market.

"XCMG's core component sector is fully-equipped to provide integrated hydraulics and transmission system solutions to meet clients' needs. We will focus on strengthening our R&D to break new ground in more areas including new material applications and quality assurance to challenge the best of the best," Wang said.

XCMG Hydraulics's extensive product line now provides whole solution sets to a wide range of heavy machinery. The oil cylinder for large-tonnage cranes is also a dominant product from XCMG Hydraulics. Its self-developed, four-cylinder synchronous linkage locking technology is the record-holder for Asia's largest-tonnage component.

XCMG Hydraulics has also achieved small-batch, customised manufacturing through reforms and upgrades, shortening the production-delivery cycle from six months to four weeks while guaranteeing consistent quality and improved stability by 50%.

Driven by innovation, XCMG has delivered consistent results in core component research and development. XCMG Drivetrain, the subsidiary specialising in developing components including transmissions, torque converters and transfer cases, has self-developed and manufactured the MYF series electric control panel and WA series wet drive axle, the only high-end transmission products widely adopted and validated by the market in China.
