The hottest robot accelerates its work in Shenzhen

  • Detail

Recently, Zhao Shengyu, chairman of Shenzhen haimuxing laser technology company, returned to Shenzhen from Beijing with a heavy trophy. He won the second prize in the first China Innovation and entrepreneurship competition and ranked fourth in the country. This is the best result of Shenzhen enterprises in this competition. The award-winning project is not his traditional business laser, but robot

these days after returning to Shenzhen, Zhao Shengyu has been thinking about and choosing the partners in 2013. Now nearly 40 large manufacturing enterprises have taken the initiative to come to the door, and the orders received can only be done selectively, because they are too busy

his confidence comes from the changes in the manufacturing ecosystem. In the context of the rapid rise in labor costs, manufacturing enterprises' demand for robots is rising rapidly, and industrial robots are quietly changing the human ecology of manufacturing industry. This trend is particularly prominent in Shenzhen, the most developed manufacturing region in China. In the fields of electronics, household appliances, equipment, new materials and other manufacturing industries, arc welding, spot welding, assembly, handling, injection molding, stamping Industrial robots with various functions such as painting are speeding up their work

according to a recent survey, large enterprises represented by Foxconn, Emmett, Huawei, etc. are planning to add robots and promote automation. Many respondents said that 2013 may become the inflection point for the large-scale application of industrial robots

manufacturing industry accelerated layout robot

Emmett is one of the world's largest manufacturers of household electric fans. On January 18, in the factory of Shenzhen Shiyan Emmett, several Spraying Robots about two meters high were spraying paint film on several fans, and the toner was evenly sprayed on the fan bones according to the established track

it is learned that in the company, the stamping department, motor department, lathe department and other departments have launched robots or automation equipment. In 2012 alone, Emmett invested a total of 30million yuan to carry out automatic and semi-automatic transformation

Zheng Shixing, manager of the general affairs department of the company, calculated an account in detail: Taking the spraying workshop as an example, in the past, there was a lot of manpower invested, and only two people were required to operate from the positive and negative sides of a fan at the same time. Now, only one spray gun is required to complete the spraying operation according to a fixed trajectory, and a robot can spray 6-9 at a time, which is not limited by the site, improves the output per unit area, reduces the storage land, and improves the efficiency dozens of times

Zheng Shixing said that the thickness, gloss and stability of machine spraying and painting are significantly better than those of manual spraying. In addition, for the sake of personal safety of employees, in the high-definition parts workshop of spraying function test and medical modeling, the temperature when brushing powder is as high as 200 degrees, which is very harmful to the physical and mental health of employees. In the past, employees also needed to wear special electrostatic clothing, which was a "three-step" production process

not only Emmett, we learned that in Shenzhen, Foxconn, BYD, Huawei and other enterprises are using more and more industrial robots. As early as last June, Foxconn announced that it planned to deploy 1million robots in the assembly line of the whole factory. Gou said he hoped that the installation of robots would reach 300000 by the end of this year, 1million by 2014, and the first batch of fully automatic factories would be launched in the next 5 to 10 years

according to the prediction of the world robotics Federation, there are 1.1 million robots in use all over the world, and China is about to become the world's largest industrial robot market. In 2011, the sales volume of robots in China was 22600 sets, an increase of 51% compared with 14600 sets in 2010. Compared with the annual sales volume in 2006, it increased four times, and is expected to become the world's first in 2014

investment recovery in the shortest three months

it is understood that the cost recovery period of most robots has been shortened from the past three years to less than one year

the minimum wage standard in Shenzhen in 2012 was 1500 yuan/month, an increase of 13% over the previous year, the highest in China. The person in charge of an electronic factory in Shenzhen told that enterprise profits were being inundated by the rise in human costs. At present, it has reached a critical point acceptable to enterprises. In addition, the continuous difficulty of recruiting workers and the high turnover rate of workers have become common problems faced by manufacturing enterprises. We must find ways to change the status quo

the pain point of the manufacturing industry has ushered in a dawn for robots

some insiders told Shenzhen business daily that at present, most robots employed by manufacturing enterprises can recover their investment within one year, and the shortest is only three months

chenwenzhen, Deputy Secretary General of Taiwan Intelligent Automation and robotics Association, said that the following trends of industrial robots deserve attention: first, robot applications have shifted from the automotive/electronic industry to general industries, such as processing, food production, product assembly, etc; Second, the demand for automation has shifted from large enterprises to small and medium-sized enterprises; Third, the investment amount recovery requirement is reduced from twoorthree years to one year

good news about the policy also came frequently. On July 20, 2012, the 12th Five Year Plan for the development of high-end equipment manufacturing industry was officially announced, and intelligent manufacturing equipment was written into the plan as an important part of it. Wang Weiming, deputy director of the industry department of the Ministry of industry and information technology and equipment, revealed that China's industrial robot market has transitioned from demonstration promotion to full application, and will become a key support area. The Ministry of industry and information technology is coordinating with the Ministry of finance to consider relevant support policies

Shenzhen robots are emerging.

because the time is ripe, Shenzhen is increasingly becoming a hot investment place for robot manufacturing enterprises. For them, the mature industrial chain advantage of Shenzhen still exists, and the demand of local traditional manufacturing enterprises is large enough

in fact, in Shenzhen, many enterprises have already targeted the industrial robot market, and the supporting days group is one of them. Speaking of poten group, most people may be more familiar with its listed subsidiary Dafu technology, and do not know that its parent company also has robot business

in fact, we started the research and development of the core components of industrial robots as early as seven years ago, but it was not until this year that a wide range of market applications were launched. Yesterday, Tian Meisheng, vice president of marketing of poten group, told Shenzhen business daily that according to the prediction of existing resources, the company's turnover in industrial robots alone could exceed 200million yuan in 2013

to carry out robot business, we need to have sufficient relevant talents and technical reserves. Zhaoshengyu, chairman of haimuxing, told that they had invited international experts with senior industry backgrounds from the UK, Singapore, Malaysia and other countries to form a core technology and management team of 12 people. At present, this team has created the world's first fully automated inverter production line, which should be far away from the fire source line. A production line can liberate 96 mechanical operation employees, and also greatly improve the product qualification rate. Although it hasn't made great efforts in the field of robots for a long time, the effect is immediate: in 2011, the company's annual sales were 37.03 million yuan, and as of November last year, the sales had exceeded 80 million yuan

it is understood that at present, most manufacturing enterprises need customized robots, which also brings cost confusion to robot manufacturing enterprises. Zhao Shengyu said that in the future, their focus is on the strategic transformation from customized production lines to industry standardized production lines, from individual cases to industry markets. In selecting customers, projects that can be highly replicated will be the focus of development

Shenzhen took the lead in establishing the robot Association in China. The relevant person in charge introduced that at present, the association has more than 70 member units, with an output value of 15.6 billion yuan in 2012, and the average annual growth rate of enterprises is 50% to 60%. Among them, there are about 30 industrial robot production enterprises, including manipulator, automation and other production enterprises

core robot parts or self-produced

it is undeniable that compared with international peers, Shenzhen enterprises still have a certain gap, and there are few backbone enterprises with high popularity

Tian Meisheng said that first, in terms of brands, most robot manufacturing enterprises have not yet formed an industrial chain, and the brand awareness is low; Second, the R & D team has not yet established a mature robot integrated application development team; Third, the reliability, accuracy and performance of the product need to be further verified; Fourth, a perfect marketing system and network have not been established

in China, Shenzhen is not the first to develop the industrial robot industry, but due to its good high-tech foundation and broad industrial foundation, the industrialization of industrial robots in Shenzhen is significantly faster. According to the analysis of insiders, Shenzhen's technological advantages, innovation ability and industrial supporting ability provide superior conditions for the development of the robot industry. The development of this industry will promote Shenzhen's optimization of industrial structure, improvement of independent innovation ability and urban comprehensive competitiveness, and will also have an impact on the development of related industries in the Pearl River Delta

Tian Meisheng said that after seven years of independent research and development, the company has mastered many core robot components. If the performance meets the product demand, it will be the core competitiveness and selling point of the company. In addition, as a local private enterprise, it has a faster decision-making mode and response speed, and realizes localized services and docking, which is also the advantage of local enterprises. We are not afraid to participate in international competition. He said that in the future, the company's product series will develop in the direction of high-end market segmentation, so that the core robot parts will be produced by ourselves and become an integrated solution provider

help to change the population structure of Shenzhen

it was suggested that the employment of robots means the layoff of the original labor force, which may have some moral problems

according to interviews with many insiders, on the one hand, for enterprises in the Pearl River Delta represented by Shenzhen manufacturing enterprises, difficult recruitment and high worker turnover are becoming common problems, and the employment of robots makes up for this vacancy; On the other hand, today's new employees expect better pay and a better environment. Compared with their predecessors, they hope to meet their own needs more than endure silently

at present, what robots replace is mostly simple and heavy work, which is a very boring and repetitive work for operators. Only when robots are handed over can employees' subjective initiative be released and their sense of belonging be improved. Zheng Shixing believes. Today's young labor force is different from that of more than a decade ago. A large number of post-90s and post-00s young people begin to consider new ways of survival and life. They will think of more ways to serve the society. In the short term, most enterprises cannot achieve full automation, and still need the cooperation of people and machines

Professor Qu Jian, vice president of the Comprehensive Development Research Institute and chairman of the Shenzhen Development Economy Research Association, said in an interview earlier that after 30 years of development, the role orientation of Shenzhen Special Economic Zone is changing. From the area that first undertook processing trade and labor-intensive industries in China, it is rapidly transforming into a developed area with a high level of industrialization and urbanization; From an industrial undertaking place to a transfer out place, this trend is irreversible

industry experts pointed out that the replacement of manual labor by robots is indeed the most important step to change the industrial structure and population structure in the long run and enhance the manufacturing competitiveness of Shenzhen in the 310 years since China's economic opening up. At that time, the large-scale tide of migrant workers and the tide of returning home may become small-scale, and train tickets will no longer be hard to get. Made in China will no longer be associated with sweatshops, but will become a model of high-tech and green production
