The robot industry bucks the trend and private capital enthusiasm is high

Guide: with the gradual decline of the demographic dividend and the rapid development of technology, robots are expected to make a brilliant debut and counter attack the process of human industrialization

there has been a considerable decline in the NC system industry, but the growth of robots is gratifying, showing a good prospect. He Minjia, chairman and general manager of Guangzhou CNC Equipment Co., Ltd., said when talking about the market operation last year

the market is dominated by foreign enterprises

Paul McKinley, a British economist, believes that the third industrial revolution of sample preparation based on interconnection, new materials and new energy and with digital intelligent manufacturing as the core concept has arrived, and the main body of digital intelligent manufacturing is industrial robots. At present, the global social organization and economic development are undergoing profound changes. With the gradual decline of the demographic dividend and the rapid development of technology, robots are expected to make a brilliant debut and counter attack the process of human industrialization

it has become a general trend for the manufacturing industry to rapidly enter the robot era. At present, the rapid development and practical application of industrial automation and intelligence are quietly replacing the majority of front-line workers. According to the latest data of the American Institute of electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), more than 1 million industrial robots have been deployed worldwide. Among them, the number of robots in Japan ranks first in the world, with nearly 400000 industrial robots, accounting for 40% of the global total

China's industrial robot market is experiencing explosive growth. Since 2010, the demand for industrial robots in China has surged, an increase of 1.71 times over 2009, when the number of industrial robots reached 52290; In 2011, the sales volume was about 22600 units, with a year-on-year increase of 51%. The growth rate continues to be the highest in the world. According to the latest data from the World Federation of Robotics (IFR) and China robotics, it is expected that by 2015, the demand of China's robot market will reach 35000 units, accounting for 16.9% of the global total, becoming the largest robot market. In view of this, global robot industry giants, including ABB group, Yaskawa Electric Co., Ltd. and KUKA robot group, have rushed to the Chinese market. At present, the above-mentioned foreign-funded enterprises alone account for more than 55% of China's industrial robot market share, and are still strengthening their layout advantages

KUKA robot group in Augsburg, Germany, is a top manufacturer in the field of industrial robots and automatic control systems. Its products are widely used in automotive, metallurgy, food and plastic forming industries. In 1986, KUKA robot presented a robot product to FAW truck as a trial product, which became the first industrial robot applied in China's automotive industry

abb provides robot products, modular manufacturing units and services. At present, the group has installed more than 200000 robots worldwide. In 1994, abb robotics department was established in Shanghai, China, becoming one of the first batch of international robot manufacturers to enter China

Yaskawa Electric Co., Ltd., founded in 1915, is a well-known robot company in Japan, leading the world in the field of industrial robots. Last year, Yaskawa (China) robot Co., Ltd. started construction, which will mainly produce industrial machines 3 Furnace size: Φ one hundred and ten × 350mm human and robot system, with an estimated annual sales of 1.4 billion yuan

and Jabil group, the world's third largest electronic manufacturing service provider, also announced this month that it plans to invest more than 620 million yuan to set up a robot related automation equipment factory in Wuxi, with an annual sales revenue of about 500 million yuan after the completion of the project

private capital enthusiasm is high

at the end of July 2011, Gou announced in high spirits that Foxconn would increase the number of robots on the production line to complete simple and repetitive work. Three years later, the scale of robots would reach 1million. He also revealed that Foxconn would set up a robot company to carry out the research and development of high-end robots and the system assembly of outsourced robots. Its 1million robots would be mainly used in painting, welding, assembly and other processes

according to the annual report of different clearances of half or seven sets of oil distribution valves from Foxconn in 2012, as of last June, the number of Foxconn international employees was 75500, while at the end of 2010, the number of Foxconn international employees was 126700, which fell to 98900 by the end of 2011

the policy background that robots are sought after is that since the State Council issued the 12th Five year national strategic emerging industry development plan, domestic and foreign enterprises have targeted the Chinese market and accelerated the development of robot R & D and manufacturing business

at present, the number of enterprises using robots in the domestic manufacturing industry is increasing, and the annual growth rate in the Pearl River Delta has reached 30% - 60%, especially in the assembly, dispensing, handling, welding and other industrial fields, which has set off a boom in the use of robots

it is reported that Huawei, ZTE, BYD and other enterprises are using industrial robots in large quantities. Some small and medium-sized LED display enterprises are also purchasing assembly and dispensing robots, with a unit price of about 200000-500000 yuan

in the field of brick making in coal mines, in March 2012, abb announced that it had provided a palletizing robot solution for Tashan Coal Mine of Datong Coal Mine Group. In Tashan Coal Mine, four abbirb660 palletizing robots are equipped with brick making equipment of Zibo power, replacing the traditional manual operation. This is also the first time that palletizing robots have been applied to the field of brick making in coal mines in China

at the end of 2012, the robot production system was also used in the concrete machinery industry. In October last year, the robot production system for welding the weld in the mixing drum of the mixer truck was officially launched in Yuanjiang Industrial Park of Zoomlion. The use of this system is the first time in the domestic concrete machinery industry

it is difficult to ensure that the wire rod can maintain effective occlusion in the process of changing the experiment only by manually screwing the clamping blocks with different thickness and different tooth surfaces.

in China, facing the vast space of robot application, local governments in Shanghai, Kunshan, Tangshan, Chongqing and other places have issued corresponding policies to introduce R & D and manufacturing enterprises and compete to build the local robot industry. At the same time, the pace of research and development of domestic enterprises is also accelerating

Sany Heavy Industry has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Chongqing at the end of 2011 to jointly develop robot projects. At present, robot research and development has been separated from the Research Institute as an independent project team. Sany Intelligent Research Institute told the media

however, due to the late start of China's robot manufacturing enterprises and the gap between basic industries, the independent production capacity of servo motors, reducers, controllers and sensors, the core components of robots, is weak, and many core components need to be imported

at present, China's robot production enterprises mainly include Shenyang Xinsong, Guangzhou CNC and Harbin Institute of technology Haier robot Co., Ltd., and there are not many domestic large-scale enterprises. The main industrial robot production enterprises still have small-scale, workshop production, poor brand influence, weak market competitiveness, and low user recognition, which have become the bottleneck for the development of national industrial robot enterprises

in the past five years, the compound growth rate of China's industrial robot industry is about 30%. However, up to now, the number of industrial robots in China is only 10% of that in Japan and 25% of that in Germany, and the market space is very broad. In the 1980s, Japan, which is similar to China's current situation, once drove the robot industry to a 10-year compound growth rate of nearly 50% due to rising labor costs

therefore, it is expected that the compound growth rate of this industry in China will reach 30% in the next three years, and explosive growth is expected
