The industrial scale of industrial robots is expec

  • Detail

In 2015, the industrial scale of industrial robots is expected to exceed trillion

in the era of intelligence, the image of robots will no longer stay in the steel warriors in sci-fi movies, or in the mechanical arms on the assembly line of the production workshop, but in a more friendly appearance

at the kevos experience center in Wuhan International Plaza, there are more than 20 dazzling products, such as window cleaning robots, dust collection robots, air purification robots, security robots, etc

xiezuoqun, Hubei agent of kevos, introduced that after landing in Wuhan market for half a year, more than 20 domestic service robots can be sold in Wuhan International Plaza every month. The home service robot can free both hands and save time. It also has entertainment functions. Now it also uses IOT and other technologies to realize remote control. Even on business trips, the robot at home can work remotely. He said

robots entering the home need to break through three major application technical barriers. The staff of kevos Experience Center said that the application environment of the family is more complex, and how the robot can adapt to the environment independently is the first obstacle to be solved urgently; Robots are mostly made of steel. If they touch people, they may be injured. Therefore, safety is also one of the technical obstacles; In addition, the robot also needs to adapt to a variety of complex language instructions to improve the accuracy of human-computer interaction, such as understanding dialects and family idioms

however, compared with Japan and other countries that developed robots in the 1970s, Chinese local enterprises did not really start to enter this industry until 2000

nevertheless, China has shown great strength in both technology research and development and market promotion

on March 6, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) working group meeting on performance testing and evaluation standards for home service robots was held in Suzhou. Kevos, as the convener of the international standardization working group, hosted the meeting. This is the first time that Chinese enterprises in the field of international robots have led the formulation of international standards as conveners. The working group will take three years to complete the formulation and release of the international standard for home service robots. In 2013, the goal is to complete the phased work of the Committee documents of the international standard for home service robots through multiple rounds of consultations

in China, in the field of household cleaning robots, two of every three cleaning robots sold are from kevos. At present, kevos home service robots have been sold to 46 countries and regions such as the United States, Canada, France, Switzerland and Spain

half a month after the Chinese national football team lost to Thailand at 1:5, the performance of another Chinese football team was unexpected: in the medium-sized group competition of the 2013 Robot World Cup Football Championship to ensure that the project meets the requirements of sustainable development, the water team formed by students of Beijing University of information technology beat the host and defending champion Eindhoven University of technology in the Netherlands at 3:2 to win the championship

what is more gratifying is that this kind of robot is gradually going out of the laboratory and serving people in various public places, breaking the foreign monopoly on high-end humanoid robot industry technology. Some experts predict that within 10 to 15 years, robots with various skills will enter Chinese citizens' homes and provide family services like nannies

in fact, the spring of robots in industrial applications is quietly coming. Luobaihui, an analyst of the gold mold industrial control industry, believes that the domestic industrial robot industry has entered a golden period. As a surprising by-product of the rapid rise of labor costs and the adjustment and upgrading of industrial structure, robots have become a catalyst for the rapid development of the industry

and calculate its average value since this year, Zoomlion has begun to purchase welding robots to replace expensive welding workers, and the new production lines of West China energy have begun to use a large number of industrial automation equipment. The domestic manufacturing industry is setting off a wave of robot mobilization

at present, the cost of a simple handling robot is equivalent to the salary of a worker for 3 years, and its service life is more than 10 years. Statistics show that the cost of domestic industrial robots is decreasing at a rate of 4% per year, and there is a huge market space for cost oriented technology upgrading in China

the problem of difficult recruitment since 2011 has continued to occur in the peak recruitment season this spring, and has a trend of spreading from the coast to the West. Even Foxconn, the world's largest contract manufacturing enterprise and a major recruiter around the world, has begun to try to get rid of its dependence on labor

as early as 2011, Foxconn said that it would deploy 1million spring testing machines on the assembly plant production line in the next three years. First, confirm the maximum force value to be tested. The maximum force value is below 2Kn. Generally, single column spring fatigue testing machine is selected Generally, the spring fatigue testing machine with double columns is used when it is greater than 2Kn to 50kn1, and the floor type spring fatigue testing machine is used when it is greater than 50kN The rack shall be designed in combination with ergonomics to ensure safety, reduce operator fatigue and provide the highest level of flexibility. This year, Foxconn's recruitment has dropped significantly, and the robot team may have taken up the post quietly

moreover, robots have more competitive advantages in work efficiency. In Shenzhen rapoo technology company, 110 people were required to work continuously in the past. After introducing a large number of robots, only 5 workers are required now. Customized industrial robots have become the main force of its production line, and its employees have been reduced from more than 3000 to more than 1000 now

it must be mentioned that the booming robot industry will replace the operators in the factory, but it will also increase the job opportunities of engineers, so as not to cause a large number of unemployment

more importantly, robots represent the highest level of human tools. The popularity of robots in the future can be said to be another industrial revolution. The robot industry is also considered as a new large-scale high-tech industry after automobiles and computers

at present, 70% of the global robot sales are concentrated in five countries, including Japan, China, the United States, South Korea and Germany. These five countries generally have strong resilience in the world economic recession

in the Chinese market, there are about 50000 industrial robots in service. The density of industrial robots in China, that is, the number of robots per 10000 production workers in the manufacturing industry, is only 21, which is far from the global average of 55

industrial robot is an important automation equipment in modern manufacturing industry, which integrates machinery, electronics, control, computers, sensors, artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies. In addition to the automobile manufacturing industry which is widely used at present, it will be widely used in blank manufacturing, machining, welding, assembly, testing and other operations in the future

according to the statistics of the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), the automotive industry has the largest demand for industrial robots in the world, accounting for 27.27%; The proportion of electronic manufacturing industry reached 22.82%, which is closely related to the technological breakthrough in the field of consumer electronics in recent years; The second is rubber and plastic industry and metal products, accounting for 8.71% and 3.62% respectively

explosive growth

artificial replacement and industrial upgrading are considered to be the driving factors for the rapid development of China's industrial robot market. At the same time, the current robot density in China is relatively low, which also provides room for future market development

in 2012, the sales volume of industrial robots in China was 27000 units, with a year-on-year increase of 17%. The world industrial robot market is promising, while the market demand for industrial robots in China will begin to explode in 2014. At present, several major foreign robot companies are aiming at the Chinese market and have set up robot manufacturing plants and R & D institutions in China in an attempt to seize the Chinese market

in terms of absolute number, the number of robots in China is only 18% of that in Japan and 35% of that in Germany; In the automotive industry, there are only 90 robots per 10000 workers, compared with more than 1600 in Japan and more than 800 in the United States

the 12th Five Year Plan is a key turning point for the development of China's industrial robot industry, and the market demand will also show a blowout development. The demand for industrial robots will increase by 15%~20% every year. At present, the robots in service in China account for about 8% of the global total, and the total demand for robots in the Chinese market is expected to double in the next few years. Luobaihui believes that the industrial scale of industrial robots is expected to exceed trillion in 2015, and the industry prospect of intelligent manufacturing and intelligent equipment is optimistic. Taking Shenzhen as an example, the data shows that the product scale of information, home appliances, communications and other equipment manufacturing industries related to robot technology has reached more than 300 billion yuan, ranking in the forefront of the country. In 2012, the average growth rate of output value of robot enterprises in Shenzhen exceeded 30%, and the growth rate of individual enterprises even reached 200%
