Intelligent manufacturing air outlets are frequent, industrial robots become a force point
Empowering the real economy has become the new mission of the development of a new generation of artificial intelligence. In the critical period of promoting the high-quality development of manufacturing industry, intelligent manufacturing has become a gathering place for “wind vents”, and the development momentum of industrial robots is particularly strong. Construction robots, service robots, agricultural robots... Some companies are accelerating the entire industrial chain of robots, in order to create new competitive advantages through technological innovation, so that "Made in China" goes further.
Intelligent manufacturing and re-venting
Industrial robots are strong
As an important force in emerging industries, artificial intelligence is receiving more and more attention. The "Three-Year Action Plan for Promoting the Development of a New Generation of Artificial Intelligence Industry (2018~2020)" issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology proposes that by 2020, a series of artificial intelligence iconic products will make important breakthroughs and form international in several key areas. The competitive advantage, the integration of artificial intelligence and the real economy will be further deepened, and the industrial development environment will be further optimized.
According to the reporter's understanding, the National Development and Reform Commission said that it will organize a new round of technological transformation and upgrading projects, use new technologies such as the Internet, big data, artificial intelligence and advanced and applicable green technologies, technologies and equipment to transform traditional industries and promote the safety of traditional industries. Green, agglomerate, and efficient development.
In the process of deep integration of artificial intelligence and the real economy, intelligent manufacturing has been given richer connotations. In promoting the upgrading of traditional industries, China will focus on promoting high-quality development of manufacturing, strengthening industrial base and technological innovation capabilities, promoting the integration of advanced manufacturing and modern service industries, and accelerating the construction of manufacturing power. Create an industrial Internet platform, expand "smart +", and empower the manufacturing transformation and upgrading.
In the industry view, smart manufacturing and robots have become the key to manufacturing power, and have become one of the commanding heights of international competition. In fact, some foreign giants have already begun to deploy. For example, Mitsubishi Electric has launched the AI technology brand “Maisart” to make full use of AI in production preparation, production, quality management and other processes to achieve intelligent manufacturing. In addition, Mitsubishi Electric has established a “Joint Laboratory of Frontier Information Technology in Intelligent Manufacturing Applications” in cooperation with the SASAC Machinery Industry Instrumentation Integrated Technology and Economic Research Institute. In the future, it will build an open platform in the field of intelligent manufacturing and strengthen the building of intelligence with Chinese enterprises. Factory cooperation.
Under the huge market space, Chinese companies are also increasing their investment. For example, Li Dong, chairman of TCL Corporation, said before his birthday that TCL is a manufacturing-based technology industry group that plans to invest 80 billion yuan in semiconductor display, artificial intelligence, big data and smart manufacturing in the next three years.
The era of "robot revolution" has arrived. Under this background, how can "Made in China" accelerate to "created in China"?
It is understood that domestic enterprises have made great efforts in laying out industrial robots. For example, Country Garden Group plans to invest 80 billion yuan in the field of robotics within five years, making robots more widely used in various constructions, community services and living.
Create a full industrial chain ecosystem
Building robots become a bright spot
The Chinese Institute of Electronics pointed out that the main gathering areas of China's robot industry are the Pearl River Delta region, the Yangtze River Delta region, the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Northeast region, the central region and the western region. Among them, the robot industry in the Pearl River Delta region has a strong development foundation. The industrial clusters represented by Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Foshan and Dongguan are at the leading level in terms of innovation and influence. It is worth mentioning that Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macau Bay Area is becoming an important core area for the development of the robot industry.
The "Guangdong, Hong Kong and Macao Dawan District Development Plan Outline" clearly states that to promote the intelligent development of manufacturing industry, focusing on robots and their key components, high-speed and high-precision processing equipment and intelligent complete sets of equipment, vigorously develop intelligent manufacturing equipment and products, and cultivate one A batch of intelligent manufacturing backbone enterprises with system integration capabilities, intelligent equipment development capabilities and key component R&D capabilities.
Among them, Guangdong Bozhilin Robot Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Bozhilin Robot”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Country Garden Group, has developed into an industry leader, and its Robot Valley project is dedicated to building “Silicon Valley” in China's robotics and intelligent manufacturing industries. ". It is understood that the current Bo Zhilin robot core business includes home service robots, medical robots, agricultural robots, construction robots and intelligent manufacturing solutions of AGV factories.
As a real estate giant, Country Garden has placed a new round of "innovation leading" competition on industrial robots, which has aroused widespread concern in the industry. Guangdong Electric Robot Industry Association Secretary-General Lian Yingying said in an interview with the media that the Guangdong robot industry is in a leading position in the country. Building robots and service robots from the perspective of focusing on the main business are more in line with the industrial needs of Country Garden itself. Subdivision will also help to accelerate its transformation to a certain extent.
The construction robot is a "big game" in which Country Garden focuses on the main business to speed up the transformation and upgrading. It is understood that Country Garden's construction robot development work is in full swing, and it is dismantled into more than 200 processes around Country Garden's own construction technology, and the dangerous and high repetition rate of the actual application scene is replaced by robots. At present, Country Garden has begun to arrange the production of aluminum molds, top frames, climbing frames, wall panels, etc. suitable for robots. AGV transport robots and ground leveling robots have also been put into trial work on the site of some high-quality construction system projects.
The "smart building" scene of building a house with a robot is expected to turn from a dream to a reality. “I dream of the heavy and repetitive work of construction workers, which can be done by robots... First, it meets our pursuit of zero casualties and safety; second, it can improve our quality; third, it can enhance our Efficiency." "In the future, to produce a house like a car, the most important thing is to improve the quality and competitiveness of the development," said Yang Guoqiang, chairman of the Country Garden Group.
In the eyes of the industry, Country Garden explores “smart construction” and “unmanned construction” and integrates new construction methods with cutting-edge technologies such as smart, digital and AI. It is actively occupying the commanding heights of technological competition and future development of the industry. China has the world's leading construction market, and the deep integration of artificial intelligence and construction robots will greatly increase labor productivity in the construction sector, and save a lot of costs, greatly improving the quality of construction. If the future construction robots can be universally added to the real estate construction industry, consumers will also be able to buy more cost-effective houses.
Yang Guoqiang firmly believes that the arrival of the "robot" era of the real estate industry is only a matter of time. Once this strategy is fully implemented in the future, it will not only become the absolute competitiveness of Country Garden's real estate business, but also have a major impact on the development of the entire real estate industry, helping the high-quality growth of the economy.
In fact, in addition to building robots, Bo Zhilin robots are using artificial intelligence technology as a platform to create an ecosystem that covers the entire industrial chain of robots. The products under development will also be used in robots, smart devices and systems in the fields of catering, property management, medical, agriculture, smart home, and manufacturing.
Implement large-scale commercial applications as early as possible
The industry believes that intelligent manufacturing represented by robots is the transformation direction determined by the domestic manufacturing and service industries. However, in the manufacturing sector, most of the robotic intelligent manufacturing solutions in the industry are not popular. It is necessary to strengthen the cooperation of all parties, break through the shortcomings of research and development, and realize the large-scale commercial application of industrial robots as soon as possible.
First of all, innovation leads the development without the improvement of the ability to support science and technology. In this regard, this year we will increase the support for basic research and applied basic research, strengthen original innovation, and strengthen key core technology research. We will improve the integration mechanism of production, education and research with enterprises as the main body.
"By the end of 2023, Bo Zhilin robots will introduce tens of thousands of outstanding global robot experts and researchers in the Robot Valley." Shen Gang, vice president of Country Garden Group and president of Bo Zhilin Robot, revealed that after the completion of the Robot Valley project, it will be realized. Robotic talent training, core technology, ontology R&D, the whole industry chain service platform for core components and robot body manufacturing, various scene system integration and practical application, providing comprehensive support for the robot industry.
It should not be overlooked that people in the industry also said that it will take time to realize the large-scale commercial application of industrial robots.
Taking construction robots as an example, Yang Guoqiang suggested that relevant government departments should strengthen guidance and support for the deep integration of artificial intelligence and construction robots. Strengthen the guidance of research and development of basic engineering robots, promote the combination of production, education and research, and gradually realize the automation and intelligence of construction site construction. Construction industry associations and universities and other related institutions need to actively participate in the development of industry standards.
Lian Yingzhan pointed out that the reason why various types of robots have not been used in large-scale applications in the whole society is largely a cost issue. If the cost of each robot can be reduced to 30,000 to 40,000 yuan, many enterprises can To bear this cost, the market prospects of robots will be even broader.
The R&D investment and horizontal cooperation in the field of robot artificial intelligence have become an important measure to seize the commanding heights of the industry. The industry believes that the current domestic robot industry is fragmented and weak in competitiveness. The localization of robot core components cannot be avoided. It is necessary to enhance core competitiveness through mergers and acquisitions and integrate the industrial chain to form an agglomeration effect.
It is worth mentioning that Bo Zhilin robot has reached a merger and acquisition intention with more than a dozen robot companies in the industry, and jointly build a new blueprint for the robot industry. Under the combined efforts of many parties, "China's robot industry will usher in a large-scale development in the next three to five years."
“We are a high-tech comprehensive enterprise that creates beautiful products for the world.” At the 2019 work conference, Yang Guoqiang issued a mobilization order for “Innovation Leads Development”. In fact, at present, this has become the consensus vision and driving force for more and more companies committed to “Made in China” and “Created in China”.
