Statistics show that China has become the largest consumer market of industrial robots in the world for three consecutive years, and the production quantity of domestic robots is also growing rapidly. From January to October this year, the output has increased by 71.5% compared with that of last year. With the current market expansion and industrial upgrading, China's robot industry is ushering in "spring".
What is the utilization rate of domestic robots? What is the broad application space of domestic industrial robots? The annual China robot industry promotion conference recently ended in Wuhu, Anhui Province. While summarizing the industrial achievements, the conference also put forward opinions on the in-depth development of the industry in the future.
As the demographic dividend weakens, robot replacement is the development direction of manufacturing industry
Wuhu googol Automation Technology Co., Ltd., which was registered in 2013, is one of the first enterprises to settle in Wuhu robot industrial park, focusing on the R & D, production and sales of drive control products and robot industry application solutions in the field of industrial robots.
"The company was officially put into operation in August 2014, and the early production mainly relies on the direct delivery from Shenzhen headquarters. At the end of last year, Wuhu production line was officially put into operation, and started independent production. At present, the per capita production capacity can achieve 8 sets per day." The assistant to the general manager of the company said that if all the 16 stations of the whole line were in operation, the actual production capacity could reach 10000 sets of controllers and servos per year.
"Googol takes the robot as the breakthrough point, and has started to set foot in other fields to promote in the non-standard automation equipment industry. At present, its products have been applied to laser, professional transfer and other equipment." The diversification of product functions and the expansion of application scope bring about the gradual expansion of enterprise market and the improvement of business efficiency. Since it was put into production in 2014, Wuhu Gugao's product sales have been growing at a rate of 30% every year, mainly to the Yangtze River Delta.
It's not just a company of googol. In Wuhu robot industrial park, from the beginning when it was settled to today's bustling city, the industrial park has changed its suburban scene, with wide roads, brand-new buildings and complete facilities Wang Yulin saw the great changes in just a few years. "What we need to do is to cultivate our internal skills, find the correct positioning, and promote and welcome the future of intelligent equipment."
With the gradual weakening of demographic dividend and the rising of human cost, robot replacement will be the development direction of global manufacturing industry in the future. In the future, more and more application scenarios will appear with the development of robots and related technologies.
The prosperity of domestic robots is expected to continue to improve
According to the data of China robotics industry alliance, in 2015, the output of industrial robots in China was 32996, a year-on-year increase of 21.7%. This year, the output has maintained a high-speed growth. From January to October, the output has reached 56604, an increase of 71.5% compared with that of last year.
Li Ruifeng, executive deputy director of Robotics Research Institute of Harbin Institute of technology, pointed out that "for China, the development of robotics industry is an important aspect of accelerating the construction of manufacturing power, promoting the transformation and upgrading of manufacturing industry, and improving the competitiveness of manufacturing industry."
With the accelerating process of industrialization, China has become a recognized manufacturing country in the world. However, in order to achieve the leap from large to strong, the task of transformation and upgrading of traditional industries is very arduous. As an important equipment to support the digitalization and intellectualization of manufacturing industry, industrial robots can not only improve the manufacturing ability, but also improve the quality of products through robot application, and can also cope with the needs of our country The problem of labor force decrease and labor cost keep rising.
"With the current production mode changing to flexible, intelligent and fine, it is urgent to build a new manufacturing system with intelligent manufacturing as the fundamental feature, and the demand for industrial robots will be greatly increased."
According to the latest statistics, the sales volume of domestic industrial robots continued to grow in 2016. In the first half of 2016, a total of 19257 robots were sold, with the comparable caliber increasing by 37.7% over the previous year, and the growth rate was 10.2 percentage points faster than that of the same period last year. Among them, the proportion of multi joint robots continued to increase, with a year-on-year growth of 67.2%; more than 60% of domestic industrial robots were applied in the field of handling and loading and unloading, and the market demand was further released. In addition, 3C manufacturing industry and automobile manufacturing industry use more domestic robots.
"This further shows that China's complete manufacturing sector provides a broad market space for the application of industrial robots." The executive director of China Robotics Industry Alliance pointed out that not only industrial robots, but also the demand for service robots in aging social services, medical rehabilitation, disaster relief and public safety has shown a trend of rapid development.
Up to now, in addition to the well-known "Jiaolong" deep-sea submersible, service robots such as rehabilitation robots, intelligent security robots, fire-fighting robots and home intelligent robots have also been put on the market.
China's robot industry is in a period of rapid development. In the past three years, China has been the largest robot market in the world, and this trend is expected to continue this year. It is expected that China's robot production capacity will double in the next few years.
Foreign robot brands still occupy 70% of China's market
From the current development situation, the robot function is more diversified, and the robot sales structure is improving. On the whole, China's robot industry has made great progress, and the average annual growth rate is far higher than that of the national industry and equipment manufacturing industry. But from the perspective of domestic robot consumer market, the sales volume of foreign robots accounts for about 70%.
According to the deputy director general of the equipment industry department of the Ministry of industry and information technology, compared with developed countries, China's robot industry still has a series of problems, such as weak technological innovation ability, dependence on imports of key parts, low quality and reliability of high-end products, imperfect standard certification system and standards, and weak market competitiveness of enterprises, which seriously restrict the healthy development of China's robot industry It will continue to develop.
What's more, foreign giants such as KUKA, abb and other four robot manufacturers are accelerating China's localization layout and further increasing their market share, which has virtually squeezed the market share of domestic robots. "From another point of view, it also ignites the desire for rapid development of domestic robots, and transformation and upgrading has become a top priority."
"To put it simply, we need to inject more intelligence into the robot, improve the demonstration applicability of the robot, and make it more functional, simpler and more convenient to operate." As far as the current situation is concerned, universities, research institutions and robot enterprises, including user enterprises, should be coordinated to promote the development of the industry
