Three problems and solutions of industrial automation

2017 has passed. Is the industrial automation transformation that has been pursued for many years completely unimpeded, and how high is the automation utilization rate of the industry? What are the main problems restricting manufacturing? The new strategic Robotics Industry Research Institute has summarized three major problems and given corresponding suggestions after multi-party research

first, the problem of flexibility

the advantage of robot based production lies in large-scale and standardized production. In today's mobile Internet era, consumer electronic products need to be more and more personalized. There are obviously many contradictions between them

especially in the industry, the speed of upgrading is accelerating, and the continuous introduction of new products has become the most important market guarantee for brand manufacturers. Therefore, how to make automatic equipment adapt to flexible production has become the biggest problem

Ren Zhong, deputy general manager of Shenzhen Tuoke intelligent, once told the new strategic robot all media that the primary problem to be solved in the automation of the industry is flexible design. Flexibility represents that after the establishment of each special committee, every production line and automatic equipment need to realize rapid line change, tooling, fixture, software system, etc. with the production Festival

at present, most system integrators are exploring the best path of flexible solutions. Many industrial chain manufacturers and automation equipment manufacturers find the possibility of standardization and scale in the core components. For example, the printing, fitting, drilling, grinding and other manufacturing links of touch screen, cover plate and touch screen assist in automatic loading and unloading. To some extent, it also realizes the fully automated production of some production links

second, the problem of return on investment

with the expansion of automated production, production enterprises need to pay more and more attention to the return on investment. At present, brand manufacturers in the market, such as Foxconn, Huawei, vivo, oppo, etc., have higher investment in automation because they occupy a higher market share, but more brands pay special attention to the return on investment when investing in automation equipment because of sales and profits

this is also complementary to flexible production. If flexible production cannot be achieved, it will be difficult for manufacturers to achieve large-scale effective use of automation equipment, and it will be more difficult to promote the pace of intelligent factories

it is understood that the frequency of line change in the industry ranges from 6 months to 8 months, and the return on investment cycle of automation equipment generally takes one to two years to be effective. If the return on investment cycle of the whole line of automatic production is longer, this problem will be an important consideration for small and medium-sized OEM in the future

third, cross-border integration problems

in our impression, the production lines with basically new layout, which show rigid annual consumption demand and income of more than 300million yuan, have a high degree of automation. At the same time, a somewhat strange phenomenon is also spreading in these enterprises, that is, they do their own production and manufacturing. Originally, they need to purchase automatic equipment, but in the end, many of them do semi-automatic or automatic equipment by themselves

for example, a camera module manufacturer in Huizhou, sanlaishi, has its own mold workshop and equipment manufacturing department, which specializes in providing semi-automatic production equipment for its own production line. Now the production line of the manufacturer is basically connected by one fully automated production station

Yixintong, a precision connector company in Tianjin, produces its own fully automated testing equipment

Zhonglan electronics in Panjin, Liaoning Province is a VCM motor in the middle of the camera, and it is also a focusing motor. The automatic production equipment of the manufacturer is also made by itself

Zhuoyi technology has set up an automation department to develop its own dispensing machine, and the automation department developed by great wall has even begun to sell its own developed equipment

why should the above-mentioned enterprises waste money and people to make their own equipment, rather than looking for system integrators or professional automation equipment manufacturers to do it

there are only two reasons. Ewing Ding in 1903 (Ewing) and hunfery Ding C. W. (Humphrey) found slip traces caused by cyclic stress on single lattice aluminum and multi lattice iron, and pointed out that fatigue deformation is caused by slip similar to monotonic deformation. First, those who manufacture automatic equipment, are not familiar with their own production process, and cannot do it without the participation of people from their own company. Second, the production process itself is the key for the company to compete in the market. Once the cooperative equipment factory really makes this kind of automatic production equipment, it is difficult to ensure that it will not lose the hands of competitors or new forces

due to the protection of trade secrets, robot manufacturing solutions that used to be good in the industrial chain have been isolated by companies. As a result, it is difficult for many companies engaged in automation equipment or robot equipment to find orders in the industry today

based on the above problems, the following suggestions need more consideration if the industry wants to better apply robots or automation equipment, and professional robot or automation equipment manufacturers, system integrators, and solution providers can better serve the industry

first, give priority to the implementation of single station automation

automation in the industry is a huge project, and gradual and steady progress is the current focus. Ren Zhong believes that the proportion of automation in the production industry is very low. At present, in the assembly and testing stage, the productivity of automation is less than 20%. At this stage, we can give priority to the use of single station automation transformation, and gradually expand from single station to the whole line. This method has strong replication and higher standardization, which is more suitable for the current situation of China's manufacturing industry

Wan Kanli, deputy general manager of Songqing intelligent, agrees with this. He also believes that single station automation can improve production efficiency and ensure yield, which has better practical value for production enterprises and system integrators

secondly, innovate benefit sharing thinking

as mentioned above, the confidentiality of the industry and even the entire 3C electronics industry is very strong. Many generation factories develop automation equipment themselves. To solve this problem, the business model innovation of automation equipment manufacturers is the key. The key to innovation lies in how to protect the distribution of benefits of innovative solutions and how to solve sharing

to put it bluntly, the difficulty of today's industrial chain robot manufacturing solution is that the afterforce is equal to the nominal value of the weight × The point of 10 is that you know your production process with the component manufacturer and are not familiar with the manufacturing of automatic equipment. Automation equipment manufacturers, on the other hand, suffer from an understanding of the production process of and components

generally speaking, the upstream and downstream problems of automatic production equipment solutions can be solved only by the cooperation of upstream and downstream

in today's mobile Internet era, the biggest innovation is sharing. Why can't we share the current and future benefits of automated production equipment solutions

for example, whether a relatively perfect solution for automated production equipment is jointly created by manufacturers and equipment manufacturers, or can we negotiate the distribution and sharing of future interests. Apple's industrial chain doesn't do this, but it adopts a high profit closure, that is, as long as you make my order, you can get rich

in China, we can also use this to apply for national and local financial support and other methods

because today, China's industrial chain has ushered in a golden five-year development opportunity, and its competitors are only Samsung and apple. The industry should be the earliest or most likely to achieve the goal of upgrading from made in China to intelligent manufacturing in China

thirdly, automated production and automated logistics complement each other

the last suggestion is that robot or automation related enterprises need to take a longer-term view. Automated production in the industry is usually accompanied by more automated applications, such as automated logistics, which has become a major trend

therefore, system integrators need to better consider whether their automation equipment or solutions can be effectively extended to the automated logistics system, and the production workshop also includes automated logistics. This integration trend will be more obvious in the future
