It is difficult for home appliance enterprises to introduce robots to replace human information flow system

Shunde plans to establish a 400million yuan equity investment fund to accelerate the development of robot companies. The news is like a bomb. Midea, Haier, Hisense and other home appliance factories in Shunde have purchased robots in large quantities to replace human resources. Nandu recently visited the factory and found that robots have been used in various processes of household appliance production, including assembly, grinding, gluing, labeling, machine tool loading and unloading. However, behind modern robots, there is an invisible flow of information. How to establish their own information flow system, link market orders and production, and even instantly link with suppliers is the threshold that robot companies can't overcome at present

a robot arm can replace a worker

manufacturing enterprises in the Yangtze River Delta and the Pearl River Delta are now launching robots. Yesterday was the 30th anniversary of the opening day of Midea air conditioner. Nandu visited the Midea carrier air conditioner factory. Four robots were arranged in four lines of the inner machine and three robots were arranged in six lines of the outer machine to handle the finished air conditioner. In addition to handling, Midea air conditioning electronics branch also uses robot hands for the production of remote controls. A production line has four robot arms to replace five workers. The circuit board is also produced by automatic equipment automatic chip mounter

robot intelligent manufacturing is a trend. Recently, Nandu also saw in Hisense air conditioning production base that the finished air conditioning hosts listed in six transportation lines on various thickness, thermal performance and other indicators, such as vacuum insulation board, rigid polyurethane board, extruded polystyrene board, molded polystyrene board, are each equipped with a machine arm to remove the air conditioning finished products and put them on the shelf. In addition, Hisense also introduced nearly 100 a GV automatic transport vehicles for transporting materials, which are operated wirelessly by workers. It is reported that the Zhuhai factory of Gree Electric appliance also uses dozens of robots, and the staff can move the focus to the project to be set from more than 300 at the beginning by pressing the direction key, reducing the number of people to more than 100, while the production efficiency has increased by 20%

one robot arm can replace one employee, but its speed is very fast. The rotatable robot arm can maintain two production lines at a time, and the efficiency is about 4 people. Yangguoxing, head of the overseas product center of Midea Group's household appliances division, told Nandu that in the case of a poor working environment, such as the machine making the sheet metal forming process, the machine is noisy and greasy. Using robots instead of employees to take and place basic actions such as taking and placing can help improve the working environment of employees

but in the opinion of Li Yang, general manager of Qingdao Haier wave washing machine, automation cannot meet the needs of mass customization without systematic support, and it is of little significance to simply purchase robots. The shortcomings of the simpler function of the single-chip microcomputer have been improved by the microcomputer. You know, the early investment of the robot is very large. In an exclusive interview with Nandu, the president of Hisense Kelon, Tian ye, said frankly that Hisense's investment principle is to recover the cost within three years, but there is still a great risk that the intelligent equipment in Jiangmen production base can recover the cost within three years. Maybe two or three years later, new technology has been produced, so the intelligent equipment invested now is obsolete

high investment in automated production

this is a big bet. It is understood that Hisense imported 13 machine arms from Japan for more than 400000 yuan each, and nearly 100 a GV cars are produced in China, with more than 100000 each from the cockpit to the tail platform. In addition, according to Wu Wenxin, President of Midea's home air conditioning division, the current intelligent production is still in its infancy. In the next five years, Midea will invest 5 billion in automatic production to comprehensively upgrade the intelligent manufacturing system. It can be expected that Midea only needs 20000 people to achieve a production scale of 100billion in 2018

but in fact, in the process of introducing robots, only understanding robots but not production, or only understanding production but not robots, can't let the intelligent chemical plant finally land. The design of the system should be based on the software architecture defined by different factories. Intelligent equipment not only reduces manpower in the system, but also throughput data, which makes the problem very complex. Deng Qiuwei, vice president of rapoo technology, made such analysis to Nandu

how to use invisible information flow is really a worldwide problem. Chenchaopeng, a senior analyst at the Institute of robotics of high industry and research, told Nandu that previous manufacturers had not formed a systematic collection and archiving of production, market and other data, and it was difficult to use historical data. Data analysis was also in a very primitive stage, and it was difficult for enterprises to share data based on competition or trade secrets. Therefore, the problem is not the robot, but the flexible part of the whole system behind the open operation of the factory. Liang Hai, vice chairman of the board of directors and rotating president of Haier Group, hit the mark
