Domestic industrial robot is expected in the next few years, "lead" Part of the subdivision area in Shenzhen, there is such a special "star", it was on the Spring Festival Evening, also in the hot movie "Transformers" in his face. The "celebrity" is actually a robot that Shenzhen must choose to develop. The robot enterprises represented by it have mushroomed in Shenzhen in recent years. The innovative potential brought by it has already affected the whole country and even the whole world.
On the 1st of August, the Ministry of Science and Technology called the "Intelligent Robot" key project recently officially launched and released the 2017 project declaration guide. It focused on the cutting-edge technology of intelligent robot, new generation of robotics, key common technologies, industrial robots, service robots, special robots Such as the deployment of six directions.
It is not hard to find that robots used in industrial fields occupy the bulk of the special plans. These robots serve the industry and are constantly boosting industry 4.0 and blooming more in Shenzhen. "2016 Shenzhen Robot Industry Development White Paper" shows: Shenzhen industrial robot industry has taken shape, with the continuous improvement of the industrial chain, market share in many segments occupy the leading position in the country, such as welding robots, 3C robots and so on.
A "master the core technology to occupy a place in the market"
In Nanshan Han's electric motor, a variety of industrial robots in the CBD of the city office rapid operation of these self-developed industrial robots in Shenzhen have catapulted Japan, the European trend; located in Baoan Tongchuan technology, R & D personnel handheld remote control Six-axis robot to make a variety of complex movements; CAS Institute of advanced robotics and Intelligent Systems Key Laboratory of Guangdong Province, the reporter found a lot of interesting industrial robots - there are industrialized family service robots, emergency relief robots, There are also medical rehabilitation and surgery-assisted robots ...
"Innovation Capital" Shenzhen hurried not only creators, white-collar workers, entrepreneurs, robots in the city are also very "busy." From the front-end research to the final industrialization landing, these exist in scientific research institutes, universities, businesses, factories, robots have been repeatedly modified, tuning.
Starting from the robot application environment, the robot is divided into two categories of industrial robots and service robots. The former is more focused on technology, performance, stability, etc., the latter more emphasis on product experience, business models. According to different uses of industrial robots can be divided into welding robots, handling robots, assembly robots and so on.
The "2016 Shenzhen Robot Industry Development White Paper" co-drafted by Shenzhen Municipal Commission of Economic Information and the Advanced Institute of Chinese Academy of Sciences and the City Robot Association has shown that in 2016, the number of robot enterprises in Shenzhen reached 469, of which 330 were industrial robot enterprises, accounting for 70.4%. Industrial robots output value of about 56.4 billion yuan, accounting for 71.69% of the robot industry output value.
"Basically all the company's gross profit is invested in R & D, Han's 500-odd employees, of which more than 300 people in the research and development work." Han's co-founder and deputy general manager Wang Guang introduced an interview with reporters. Shenzhen enterprises continue to make breakthroughs in core technology, some of the more sub-areas to catch up with the trend of overseas companies. "Many domestic small and medium-sized electronic manufacturing companies want short and fast profit-making methods, they often neglect basic research." The combination of industry, university and research is very important. Only by mastering core technologies can we gain a place in the market. "Wang Guangneng said.
B "Large companies at home and abroad often want to find application scenarios in Shenzhen"
Shenzhen robot industry's strong industrial base support, big data, cloud computing, Internet of Things and other technical level leading the country. Shenzhen is also the world's largest manufacturing base for communications equipment and the largest medical device and micro-motor manufacturing center in the country. The advanced manufacturing industry has achieved large-scale development. The relevant person in charge of Shenzhen Robot Association said that the robot market in Shenzhen is capable of radiating radiation and the 3C industry is the second largest robot application field after the automobile industry.
Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenzhen advanced assistant Dean of Shenzhen Institute of Robotics, Bi Ya Lei, Secretary-General bluntly, "Shenzhen's scientific research foundation is not dominant, we are not standing in the forefront of technology, but standing in the forefront of the scene needs to get the best Development opportunities. "Biyarre introduced, rich application scenarios to promote the role of innovation is very obvious. Large companies at home and abroad want to use the robot well in the production line, often to Shenzhen to find the application scenario.
Shiqui Bo, CEO of Li Qun Automation, also found a similar phenomenon: "As you walk into the industry, you will find that the industry is getting more and more subdivided and you can find out which aspect requires robots and related equipment. This is a process of exploring the market. Every application scenario is likely to breed new industries, and industrial robot applications will only have more and more applications. "
Shen Xiaolong, general manager of Shenzhen Tongchuan Technology Co., Ltd., analyzed that in order to realize the application of industrial robots in the subdivision industry, large robotic products from overseas giants may appear "acclimatized". In his view, the subdivision industry put forward higher requirements for "man-machine collaboration" and Tongchuan Technology focuses on artificial intelligence and industrial automation solutions. "The essence of human-computer collaboration is to let people do more valuable things, and to simply repeat or harm human beings to the robot to complete." Shen Xiaolong believes that in the next few years, domestic robots will have some specialized fields of expertise Absolute advantage. "There are four foreign giants. There may be hundreds of domestic trump card enterprises in the field of subdivision, and Chinese enterprises have more advantages in terms of localization services and costs."
C "lightweight industrial robot field is a new track"
"In the field of industrial robot we need to respect the experience and accumulation of industrial emphasis on process precipitation, historical heritage, we have the opportunity to go beyond their predecessors, but this process is not accomplished." Shi Jinbo said foreign advanced robots in terms of safety, reliability, etc. In a leading position, and domestic robotics enterprise technological innovation can be more flexible and rapid. In her view, lightweight industrial robots are a brand new "race track" where robots are more intelligent in light industry and robotic companies have the opportunity to "bend overtaking" from software and algorithms.
Shijinko referred to as "predecessors" refers to the "big four" in the field of industrial robots - Switzerland abb, Japan Fanuc, Yaskawa Electric Co. and Germany KUKA, they have set up branches and joint ventures in China, in China Market share was as high as 70%.
In Shen Xiaolong's opinion, judging the future of the industrial robot industry has more than one dimension. "Industrial robots in Europe and the United States started earlier, more used in automobile manufacturing, the larger parts of the car, so industrial robots are also large." Shen Xiaolong that such large robots in China may not be able to meet the growing demand for industrial intelligence .
