Its key functional areas include assembly area, high precision machining area, structural parts processing area and storage area, where intelligent and digital operations are carried out. The high-intelligent workshop can serve as the teacher for the front-line workers who aren’t familiar with the assembly work. The workers can learn the entire assembly process through the instructions of digital simulation and 3D demonstration displayed on digital screen.

Bank of Sanxiang is the only financial institution based on large manufacturing industry, which integrates industry with finance.
“It is pretty sure that we are not going to put our focus on setting up bank branches, because our main service will still be in the enterprise,” Liang said that Bank of Sanxiang will be specialized in providing professional service for enterprises in five sectors including high-end manufacturing, medical treatment, cultural tourism, new energy and new materials and governmental platform. “We will take great efforts to run the bank for giving more helps to enterprises instead of doing speculative business. We hope that Bank of Sanxiang will be a century-old bank.”
On July 14, 2017, China Unionpay official approved Bank of Sanxiang as its basic member, which is a milestone for Bank of Sanxiang, since it can share resource with China Unionpay members and its debit card is convenient for cross-region and cross-bank use.
