The hottest machine replacement in the Pearl River

  • Detail

"Machine substitution" in the Pearl River Delta: a competition against the international standard starts

manufacturing is the instrument of rejuvenating the country and the foundation of strengthening the country. Guangdong, which is committed to building a strong manufacturing province, is at the tuyere of traditional manufacturing transformation, and the robot demand running like a fire in the Pearl River Delta region is hidden. With the explosion of made in China 2025, the robot manufacturing enterprises in the Pearl River Delta also seem to suddenly come like a spring breeze overnight, Overnight, all kinds of smart equipment, large and small, have fallen into the jade plates of major factories in the Pearl River Delta

it will be the top of the mountain and the small mountains at a glance. At present, a new round of industrial revolution is breaking out rapidly all over the world. Seizing the highland of a new round of industrial competition and occupying the commanding height of the competition in the intelligent manufacturing industry has become one of the core strategies of all countries in the world. In the face of German industry 4.0, Japan's new robot strategy and American industrial interconnection, how can the Pearl River Delta seize the opportunity of made in China 2025 to achieve overtaking in a corner on the global stage where there are strong players in the intelligent equipment manufacturing industry? On the 29th, a special meeting on the future of machine replacement in the Pearl River Delta and smart manufacturing in China, hosted by the Guangdong Branch of Xinhua news agency in conjunction with reference news, was held. The meeting attracted about 150 Representatives from more than 10 cities in the Pearl River Delta to jointly discuss the opportunities and challenges of machine replacement in China, exchange the practice of machine replacement in the Pearl River Delta, and offer advice and suggestions on the goal of creating a strong manufacturing province in Guangdong in the future

on the pain of transformation

at the meeting, Liu Zhigeng, vice governor of Guangdong Province, said that Guangdong has encountered a short board in the current transformation of manufacturing industry, which is large but not strong, and the key technology depends on imports. At present, the pace of machine replacement in Guangdong Province has been in the forefront of the country, but we should be sober to see that there are many enterprises producing robots and robot parts in Guangdong, but the key technology still depends on the introduction, which is the weakness of Intelligent Manufacturing in the province

what Liu Zhigeng revealed was the challenge of "made in China" moving towards "smart manufacturing in China" in Guangdong. In fact, as early as 2010, China has surpassed the United States to become the world's largest manufacturing country, and in 2014 became the world's largest demand market for industrial robots with the largest 4 and the largest travel: 800mm (excluding grippers). However, industry insiders pointed out that today, more than 30 years after the robot arm has appeared on the global stage, the share of 10000 robot workers in China has not reached one tenth of that in Japan, South Korea and other countries, and the proportion of domestic robots in the domestic market is less than 30%. As a major manufacturing province in China and an important manufacturing base in the world, Guangdong has been particularly concerned about the pain of transformation

data show that the robot replacement rate in the world is about 5%, while that in China is only about 0.2%. The number of industrial robots per 10000 industrial workers in China is far lower than that in developed countries, and the gap in independent brands is even greater. Tang Hua, vice president of reference news, said at the meeting. Tang Hua's words touched the tense heartstrings of some entrepreneurs at the meeting: facing the current situation that the layout of global enterprises in China's intelligent manufacturing has been basically completed, the domestic robot enterprises with rapid growth in 2015 are facing the test of international market standards

we need to have independent brands of China's top 500, but if enterprises in the Pearl River delta still rely on foreign technology, we can only be large but not strong. How can we go out? Dongmingzhu, chairman of Zhuhai Gree Electric Appliance, asked at the meeting

recently, the document "Guangdong intelligent manufacturing development plan ()" issued by Guangdong clearly stipulates that by 2025, Guangdong will build an internationally competitive intelligent manufacturing industry cluster. Before the start of this competition to benchmark international standards, the United States, Germany, Japan and other countries, with their technological accumulation, have already let their intelligent equipment fly into the ordinary Pearl River Delta. Dong Mingzhu is not without regret. Gree's CNC machine tools are imported from Germany. I wanted to support domestic brands and visited the best enterprises in China's CNC machine tools, but they can't meet but are not resistant to aromatic hydrocarbons and halogenation; Our requirements for accuracy

the accuracy of domestic intelligent equipment needs to be improved, which has become a concern. Recently, we spent 3 months testing more than 20 kinds of springs, but no domestic company can meet our accuracy standards. Finally, we can only choose a Japanese company. Shi Jinbo, general manager of Dongguan Songshanhu international robot industry base company, said helplessly

can you get the initiative in the global intelligent manufacturing competition by spending money on foreign technology and equipment? At the meeting, he Minjia from Guangzhou CNC Equipment Co., Ltd. gave a negative answer. The CNC machine tools of FANUC in Japan have been rampant in China for many years. Ten years ago, when we bought foreign CNC machine tools, we didn't have the right to negotiate at what price or how to buy them, and the maintenance cost was ridiculously high. Today, Japan still produces drilling machines and other products and sells them to Dongguan by virtue of its demon factory, which is almost unmanned and has been produced for 24 hours. If foreign countries take the lead in the robot industry standards and industrial layout, the Chinese market will be monopolized by four families in the future, including ABB in Switzerland, FANUC in Japan, Yaskawa electric in Japan and KUKA robot in Germany. In the future, thousands of jobs will be replaced by machines made by foreigners

on Countermeasures

an insider told Xinhua at the meeting that the current super large market capacity of China's robot industry of 30 trillion yuan in the next 30 years and the made in China 2025 strategy designed by the central top level once attracted many small and medium-sized robot manufacturing enterprises in the Pearl River Delta, but some small robot enterprises lack their own core technology and rely on the introduction of foreign technology for assembly, And rely on government subsidies to survive. The robots they produce for the foam granulator are not competitive with foreign ones in terms of price and cost

we in Guangdong should speed up our efforts in (key technology of Intelligent Manufacturing) and make up for our shortcomings before we have the initiative. Therefore, our next main attack direction is to make up for the most valuable one imported from abroad, which is fundamental. At the forum, Liu Zhigeng prescribed a prescription for the shortcomings in the development of Intelligent Manufacturing in Guangdong. Strengthening independent innovation in key technologies has become the common aspiration of officials and entrepreneurs present

at present, 4000 sets of industrial robots have been used in Foshan, and the demand of Foshan enterprises for robots is increasing by 30%-40% every year. In order to implement the made in China 2025, we have not only vigorously developed industrial robots, but also strengthened the core technology research. For the ten pillar industries in Foshan, we have selected 107 enterprises to arrange special financial support. We will spend three years focusing on cultivating these enterprises, and strive to solve the problems of weak innovation foundation and dependence on imports of key components. A person in charge of Foshan Economic and Information Technology Bureau said at the meeting that he believed that independent technological innovation was the key to the survival of enterprises. Dong Mingzhu agrees with this view

after more than 20 years of development, Gree Electric Appliance ranks first in the world in terms of sales volume of air conditioners. In 2014, it entered the world's top 500 with a business card made in China. The key point is independent innovation. Gree is the enterprise with the most patents in the field of air conditioning. We now have 1750 patents for independent invention, and we have also innovatively produced airless air conditioning. In some of our production workshops, including Gree 608 robot integration line and elbow unmanned demonstration workshop, automation has been achieved. The equipment in these workshops is our independent research and development. I think a truly responsible enterprise should adhere to independent research and development. Dongmingzhu said. At the meeting, she called on all entrepreneurs to establish a domestic robot enterprise alliance to deal with foreign competition. For the entrepreneurs who are concerned about automation, can we set up an alliance to learn from each other's strengths, because we are all small enterprises. And China's huge market can accommodate our common prosperity. I hope we can stick together and don't question it at the beginning. It's totally unnecessary for us to fight a price war in the closed market

in the face of international competition, only by strengthening technological innovation and learning can we know ourselves and know the enemy and get the first chance, which has also become one of the measures hotly discussed by the guests

China is a big manufacturing country and Germany is a powerful manufacturing country. At present, the level of Chinese manufacturing is equivalent to that of German industry 2 5. The development of China's manufacturing industry is not balanced, and it is still in the stage of not completing industry 2.0 on the whole. To achieve the goal of industry 4.0, we must understand the progress of the United States, Germany and other countries in the standardization, modularization and digitization of intelligent equipment! Zhao Sheng, the author of "industry 4.0: an emerging future" and CEO of maker global incubator, said at the meeting

30 years ago, we used very old machine tools to make very precise Aerospace instruments. Now the mechanical level is dozens of times better than before. Why do we still encounter the deviation of accuracy? This may have something to do with whether we are rigorous. We rely too much on machine tools. Facing international competition, we need to know what is good about foreign countries? Shi Jinbo said

on practical experience

in 2014, with the introduction of Dongguan No. 1 document and various supporting policies, machine replacement was vigorously carried out in the Pearl River Delta. In 2015, when the smart manufacturing policy was blowing vigorously, thousands of robotic arms in factories in Guangdong were waving the ambition of the Pearl River Delta to seize a new round of manufacturing heights. What are the practices and explorations of the Pearl River Delta cities (districts) in this industrial revolution about future survival? The prophet of spring river water heating duck, the guests at the meeting have described the industrial spring brought to them by the replacement of machines

in Jiangmen, the motorcycle industry with an output value of more than 20billion yuan is one of the pillar industries supporting the economic development of Jiangmen. Jiangmen is trying to realize the application of robots in motorcycle production. Jiangmen put machine replacement under the framework of vigorously promoting the construction of the advanced manufacturing industrial belt on the West Bank of the Pearl River. In recent years, Jiangmen machine replacement strategy is mainly applied to grinding and polishing, automatic welding, automatic stamping and other processes in motorcycle manufacturing and other industries. Among them, Jiangmen has made a breakthrough in the application of automatic welding robots for motorcycles, achieving 100% coverage of automatic welding of motorcycle frames. A person in charge of Jiangmen economic and Information Technology Bureau said at the meeting

the top-level design of made in China 2025 will be further rolled out in the next year. We expect that the state will introduce more subsidies in the future, which is needed by our small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises. We should take advantage of this wave of policy dividends to focus on the AGV car and catering robot products in the robot manufacturing segment and take a share. Zhu Fanghua of Shenzhen Oukai robot Co., Ltd., who attended the meeting, told Xinhua

it was also learned from the special meeting on the same day that the labor shortage in some regions of the Pearl River Delta, such as Dongguan, has been alleviated through machine replacement. On the day of the meeting on September 29, Dongguan passed three machine replacement documents at one go, including the work plan on strengthening industrial policy support and promoting the development of advanced equipment manufacturing industry. Data show that from September 2014 to the end of June 2015, Dongguan accepted 530 machine replacement projects, which will reduce employment by about 36000 people after all of them are put into operation. Will the employment market be distorted in the future? Enterprise representatives in Dongguan expressed their views. For our robot enterprises, we have a complex, which is to build an ecological environment for the robot industry
