YUYAO INVESTS 5 BILLION TO BUILD A “ROBOT TOWN”

Reporter Cheng Pengyu Correspondent Yu Wenkai Yang Ming“The direction of manufacturing in Zhejiang is intelligent manufacturing.”At the 3rd China Robot Summit and the Ningbo Summit of Thousands of Returnees, which opened yesterday,industryExperts in smart manufacturing have clearly pointed to this trend.After listening to the summit forum for nearly 4 hours, Weng Jiuxing, general manager of Ningbo Sunny Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd., who has been sitting in the audience busy recording various professional terms and data, felt that he “stepped on the spot”: “Smart Manufacturing, it uses data modeling and big data analysis to find the most suitable and lowest-cost manufacturing mode for product production. The production line of our enterprise is built according to the intelligent manufacturing line. “In his view, “It’s definitely a big trend.”Yuyao promotes “machine substitution” for more than 85% of the above-mentioned enterprisesJust in the past few days, Weng Jiuxing has just completed the production work of the intelligent flexible production project, and has now entered the installation and commissioning stage. “It is to complete multi-tasking operations on one (set) of equipment. It includes an assembly line and a set of intelligent digital factory management systems, in which the assembly line can realize the co-production of several products.”Not only Weng Jiuxing, more and more Ningbo enterprises have set foot in “machine substitution”.“We developed a set ofautomation equipment, has now entered the fifth generation, from the beginning of a single unit to the current 10 units in series, the labor is reduced from 20 to 3, and the process time is shortened from 8 seconds to 4 seconds. “Chen Yanzhi, general manager of Ningbo Pulida Intelligent Technology Application Co., Ltd. and an expert of the national “Thousand Talents Program” revealed that thanks to intelligent manufacturing, “the sales in the first quarter have reached 5 million yuan, an increase of 50% over the same period last year. “from Ningbo Weili Precision mechanicalThe “Weili Robot” Research Institute, which was transformed from the Co., Ltd., has independently developed a manipulator for injection molding machines with the help of the complete plastic industry chain in Yuyao. “In the first four months of this year, it has achieved sales of 32.3 million yuan, a year-on-year It has increased by 32%.” Li Yufang, executive deputy general manager of the company, believes, “In recent years, many manufacturing enterprises have gradually realized thatautomationThe need for renovation. “By the end of 2015, Yuyao City had implemented a total of 334 “machine-replacement” key projects of more than 3 million yuan, of which 148 had been completed, with a total investment of 2.54 billion yuan, and the per capita production capacity increased by 4.6 times.At the third China Robot Summit, which opened yesterday, Yuyao announced that it plans to invest 5 billion yuan in three years to build a “robot town”. This will also be my country’s first “robot town”.For Weng Jiuxing, “this is a new opportunity. More advanced intelligent manufacturing technologies will be implemented in Ningbo to promote the transformation and upgrading of enterprises.”According to the “Three-Year Action Plan for Accelerating the Promotion of Enterprise “Machine Substitution” Technological Transformation (2014-2016)”, by the end of this year, Yuyao City will promote more than 85% of the city’s designated enterprises to implement “machine substitution” and complete the cumulative investment. 10 billion yuan, and completed over 400 key special projects.By 2017, the province will cultivate 50 characteristic towns of intelligent manufacturingCompared with Yuyao, Shaoxing Keqiao’s “machine substitution” is also very urgent.“To change, or not to change?” said Gao Anhong, deputy general manager of Shaoxing Huamao Chemical Fiber, “If you change, the cost of one-time equipment investment and follow-up maintenance will be too high, and the profit will be very meager; if you don’t change, labor costs will keep getting higher and higher. .”However, Gao Anhong realized the urgency of “replacing people with machines”, “I bought a lot of imported texturing machines, including 46 Barmag machines imported from Germany and 42 33H machines from Japan’s TMT company. More than 30 million yuan. If these equipment can be made in China, it will definitely save a lot of costs.”Chen Yanzhi saw this awkward situation: “The threshold for ‘machine substitution’ or intelligent manufacturing is relatively high, which will make many companies hesitate.”Not long ago, Chen Yanzhi developed a “pipe fitting automatic forming” production line for a pipe fitting enterprise, which is also the first self-developed pipe fitting automatic forming production line in China. “The price of similar products abroad is as high as 4 million yuan. ‘Only 2 million yuan. This year, the company will customize the automation transformation of 17 production lines in a workshop.”At present, it seems that the dividends brought by intelligent manufacturing and “machine substitution” are beginning to appear.By the end of last year, Hangzhou had implemented a total of 1,595 “machine-replacing” projects; Hangzhou’s above-scale industries achieved an added value of 290.33 billion yuan, an increase of 5.4%, of which high-tech increased by 9.8%, 4.4 percentage points faster than the above-scale industries; Growth contributed 72.8%.In addition, last year, the labor rate of all employees in Ningbo above-scale enterprises reached 179,000 yuan per person, a year-on-year increase of 9.8%; while the employment of 10,000 yuan of industrial added value fell by 8.9% year-on-year.All these have laid the foundation for Zhejiang Manufacturing to realize intelligent manufacturing.According to the plan of “Accelerating the Development of Intelligent Manufacturing (2015-2017)”, by 2017, the total output value of the intelligent equipment industry above designated size in the province will reach 200 billion yuan, with an average annual growth of about 18%; It will cultivate 50 intelligent manufacturing characteristic towns and 10 intelligent manufacturing demonstration bases with great influence nationwide.related newsTransformation from traditional home to intelligent manufacturing Jiashan enterprise layout intelligent warehouseNews from this newspaper (reporter Chen Jianfang based in Jiaxing) “An intelligent three-dimensional warehouse is being built here. To find and transport goods in ordinary warehouses, workers need to drive forklifts to operate, but intelligent warehouses do not need them, and each product will be shipped early. The positioning information has been generated at the beginning of the order, which will be automatically stored according to the positioning during storage, and will be automatically released when shipping, which not only saves manpower, but also reduces the error rate.” Gao Meirong, general manager of Jiashan Sophia Home Furnishing (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd., pointed to the factory area. The 5,000-square-meter construction at the entrance said, “This is an important attempt for ‘Sophia Home’ to transform into the field of intelligent manufacturing.”It is understood that in this intelligent warehouse with more than 7,200 shelves, every product stored will have a traceable QR code. “We have injected the wisdom factor into the traditional industry.” Gao Meirong said, for example, customers of “Sophia Home Furnishing” only need to place an order online, and an account manager will come to communicate with them; Now, there are wood materials of various colors, materials and styles in the tablet computer, and customers can see the simulation effect on the spot and choose. At the same time, “Sophia Home Furnishing” has also introduced an intelligent system, which improves the accuracy of size measurement by 30% to 50% compared with traditional methods.In the huge workshop of “Sophia Home”, only a few people are operating computers, and 12 high-speed automatic production lines are replaced by workers. Gao Meirong calculated that before the introduction of the automated assembly line, 800 workers could only produce 30,000 pieces of plates per day, but after that, 500 workers could produce 50,000 pieces.It is reported that since “Sofia Home Furnishing” settled in Jiashan in 2013, the sales have grown from 100 million yuan in 2013 to 780 million yuan in 2015, and it is expected to achieve sales of 1 to 1.1 billion yuan this year. What is the reason for the rapid development of the traditional home furnishing industry? “Intelligent manufacturing and Industry 4.0 are a good path.” Gao Meirong revealed that in the next 3 to 5 years, “Sophia Home Furnishing” will increase the “machine substitution”, and strive to increase production efficiency by another 50% and reduce labor costs. 30% to 50%.It is understood that Jiashan County took the lead in proposing the “Internet + Intelligent Manufacturing” strategy last year. Data from the first quarter of this year show that 76 intelligent transformation projects focusing on “machine substitution” have been implemented in the county, with an investment of 2.278 billion yuan. Reduce labor by nearly 4,000 people.
