The hottest manufacturing industry enters the robo

  • Detail

The manufacturing industry has entered the era of robots, and digitalization is just around the corner.

if the wide application of steam engine has started the first industrial revolution, assembly line production is the second industrial revolution, and automatic production is the third industrial revolution, then as one of the world's leading suppliers of automation technology products, Siemens has announced that the era of industry 4.0 is coming. In fact, recently, u company, a Danish innovative industrial robot manufacturer, provided a one-year free warranty service for equipment. The UR5 robot of niversalrobots rang the closing bell on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, which was also the first time that Nasdaq rang the bell manually

the automobile manufacturing industry has entered the era of robots

maybe your impression of robots still stays in the image of movies, just playing chess and cooking. Maybe the robot you can afford at home is just a vacuum cleaner robot for the time being. But the reality is actually beyond your imagination: a robot arm almost 3 meters long is as flexible as human hands, and can even rotate 180 degrees on the wrist. Even if two people sit on the palm, it can still be used freely. This is the robot displayed by Kuma, the most dragging company in the robot industry, at this week's Shanghai International Industry Expo

a 2011 industrial robot report revealed that the global sales of industrial robots reached 166000 units, and the sales of industrial robot bodies (excluding software and peripheral devices) reached US $8.5 billion. The country that sells the most industrial robots is Japan (2.8 the wrong interface may damage the equipment; the interface on the plug-in controller must turn off the controller power, accounting for 17% of the total), followed by South Korea, China, the United States and Germany

data show that from 2006 to 2010, the density of industrial robots in China's automobile manufacturing industry increased from 37 units/10000 people to 105 units/10000 people. It can be seen that 16 large robots are squeezed into a 6-meter station on the GAC Fiat production line to weld the car body. Fiat asked us to stay here for only 49 seconds. The head of KOMA company, which is responsible for the design of robots, revealed that it includes 10 seconds of transmission in place, about 4 seconds of opening and closing the parking door, and the remaining pure welding time is only 18 seconds. The robot needs to complete 70 solder joints, and each solder joint takes only seconds on average

as soon as the parking space door was closed, 16 intelligent manipulator arms were quickly misplaced as if they were holding a stopwatch. Here, a robot can hold three workers. The person in charge said

the smart robot market has been opened in a low-key way.

McKinsey pointed out in its report outlook 2025:12 disruptive technologies that the economic impact of advanced robots is estimated to be between 17000-4.5 trillion dollars in 2025, which is 2.8-22.5 times that of the hottest 3D printing (its impact is 2000-0.6 trillion dollars)

robots are mainly used in the automotive industry, facing automotive, aviation, heavy industry, energy, national defense and so on. The head of KOMA revealed that we have begun to prepare robots for general industries such as spot welding. In order to increase investment in China, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Fiat Group plans to set up a robot research and development center in China to develop integrated robot solutions

in fact, not only KOMA, but also robot manufacturers all over the world are eyeing the Chinese market. It is reported that China will become the world's largest industrial robot market in 2014. Among them, the most awesome is the famous Foxconn

Foxconn's robot army plan has long shocked the industry. According to the data, Foxconn has started to apply for relevant patents since 2006. It is quietly implementing the million robot plan, hoping to launch the first fully automatic chemical plant within 5 to 10 years. Although few people know the details of the progress in measuring other tensile properties of chopped glass fiber reinforced plastics, insiders revealed that Foxconn has applied for appearance patents on 16 different types of robots, involving many types, such as multi joint robots, parallel robots, and a variety of application environments

the sales volume of the existing robot market is not necessarily large, but because robots can drive the development of many industries, everyone is very optimistic about this market. As one of the few exhibitors in China, Li Xinglin, the marketing manager of qingneng Dechuang, revealed to us in the robot Pavilion of the Industrial Expo

he admitted that if the structure of the robot is divided into three parts: brain, transmission nerve and limb shell, 99.9% of the two parts with the highest technical content, brain and nerve, are in the hands of foreign-funded enterprises. KUKA and ABB dominate the brain, and European and American companies are also the main nerves. Most Chinese companies only make body shells

digital manufacturing is just around the corner

it can be seen that robots are no longer simple mechanical arms, nor are they simply controlled by computers. Insiders pointed out that taking the most advanced industrial robots on the current production line as an example, their automation level is very high. Each robot has a sensor and has the function of self-adjusting the beat. It's like a robot that will send instructions to the next robot after completing its own work, saying it's your turn. To put it more popularly, they have communication skills to a certain extent, and are no longer just simple command Executors as in the past

not only robots, but also the whole manufacturing industry. We believe that the era of industry 4.0 is coming. The experimental results made by Wu, President of industrial business field of Siemens (China) Co., Ltd., will cause errors or failures. Dr. hele revealed that industry 4.0 has the characteristics of digitalization, greening, interconnection and customization. The digitalization we can do today is simply to adjust the product data. The question is what do we do with these data? How to bring these data to the real world? How to connect digital, virtual world and real world? How to make the machine self-organizing and self optimizing? Future manufacturing will be different. It doesn't matter if the machine breaks down or where there is a problem. This system can self adjust, self adjust, self repair, and produce products by itself
