“In the context of Industry 4.0, the market, consumers and companies are making greater demands on industrial efficiency. The accelerated market activity and the intensification of industry competition give companies more flexible response capabilities and stronger competitiveness. These changes and pressures are driving the digital transformation and modernization of organizations. As a typical process industry, the extractive industry has the characteristics of multiple sources of raw materials, long process flows and complex working environments, and its digital transformation is even more urgent.” Development level of manufacturing enterprises spoke, material manufacturers should firmly grasp the period of opportunity of scientific and technological revolution and industrial change, and encourage the raw materials industry to actively integrate 5G, industrial Internet, artificial intelligence and other new generation information technologies, and focus on accelerating the intelligent manufacturing process, to focus on strengthening the industrial Internet and consolidating the digital support foundation.

As President of Keshun Civil Building Materials Co.,Ltd. XU Ruyi focused not only on major company decisions, but also on related technologies, product research and development, and improving traditional technologies in the field of waterproof materials science. For more than ten years, he has been steadfast, energetic and hardworking, and has mastered one scientific research problem after another. Over the years of work practice, XU Ruyi has achieved great improvement in the performance of traditional waterproof materials in many aspects, made a number of major breakthroughs in waterproof strength, durability and other aspects, and the perfect combination of ultra-waterproof and extremely resilient properties of materials , which has brought enormous economic and social benefits to the company.

“Besides daily management work, I spend most of my free time researching waterproofing materials, which is hard work but still fun!” XU Ruyi expressed his destiny with waterproof materials: “Waterproof materials are the basic materials of the building materials industry. Now the world is building a lot of civil engineering; All kinds of constructions need waterproof materials, and it can be said that my research bears the burden of China’s comprehensive development of infrastructure construction.”

XU Ruyi not only said that, he did it. In the research of waterproof materials and technologies, he integrated high-precision technologies such as big data, Internet of Things and cloud computing into the research, development and technological upgrading of waterproof materials, and successively developed a series of original technological achievements of epoch-making importance in the field of waterproof materials, including “Internet-based waterproof coating quality inspection and analysis system”, “Intelligent material production line management system based on Internet of Things technology”, “One-stop information management platform for waterproof engineering”, “Coating Inspection System Based on Big Data”.

Let’s take “Intelligent Material Production Line Management System Based on Internet of Things Technology” as an example. With the Internet of Things technology as the core, combined with automatic identification technology and network transmission technology, the system can monitor and manage the whole process of processing, production materials, quality inspection and other links in the material production process, and realize the digitization and computerization of the process of Material production line, the automation of the production process and the optimization of information management.

When asked about the original intention of the research and development of this technology, XU Ruyi said, “Due to the changes in the market environment and the continuous updating of modern production management concepts, the key to green operation of a manufacturing enterprise is that the ‘plan’ and ‘production’ work closely together. Enterprises and workshop managers can quickly grasp the changes in the production site, and make accurate judgments and quick countermeasures according to the changes, to ensure that the production plan is corrected appropriately and quickly. Industrial Internet of Things is the optimization of the entire manufacturing process and not the solution of a specific production bottleneck. Therefore, it is very important to develop an intelligent material production line management system based on the Internet of Things technology.”

This is just one of the many original technological achievements independently developed by XU Ruyi.

XU Ruyi used these technological achievements to widely promote the independent innovation and technological advancement of the material industry, recognized the super waterproof, super storage and super toughness of waterproof materials, and made the waterproof materials industry develop by leaps and bounds. These achievements have not only been widely applied in the fields of residential and commercial buildings, but also have been applied to construction projects of national major bridges, tunnels and other projects, which highly meet the key strategic requirements of national materials engineering. Because of this, XU Ruyi has become a leading figure and an authoritative expert in the industry, and has successively won the national waterproof materials awards. In addition, he has been invited to serve as the Vice President of China Building Material Council’s Ready-Mixed Mortar Branch and other key positions in many leading organizations in the industry, and he also used this as a platform to make indispensable contributions to professional exchange, innovation in of the industry and talent promotion of building materials.

XU Ruyi has walked countless days and nights on the path of researching waterproof materials. He can always clearly see the development direction of waterproof materials, and has an extraordinary spirit of constant pursuit of technological research and development and academic research. At the same time, XU Ruyi can also tightly integrate technical theory and practical application, and because of this, each of its achievements can be relevant to the key issues of industrial development, to achieve excellent application effect in various large-scale engineering projects. and win the respect and praise of the majority of people in the industry.

Facing the praise, XU Ruyi was very indifferent; he said: “The exploration of materials science is endless. I dedicated my youth and dreams to researching and developing waterproof materials to constantly surpass myself. Only by dedicating my time and passion unreservedly to the industry I have loved all my life can I move towards higher goals. The successes I have achieved will not satisfy me, but only motivate me even more to climb to the top.”

XU Ruyi, who has been focused on one thing all his life, is a well-deserved “leader” for the development of China’s waterproof materials science.
