China's industrial robot ranks first in the world, and "machine replacement" is gradually becoming a trend

China's construction machinery information

as China's demographic dividend weakens year by year, the demand for industrial transformation and upgrading is released, and the cost of productivity is rising, coupled with the fact that the cost performance of industrial robots after scientific and technological progress is approaching a turning point and their acceptance is gradually increasing, In many fields, industrial robots have formed a trend to replace human beings

according to the data recently released by the international robotics Federation, in 2013, a total of 37000 industrial robots were sold in the Chinese market, nearly three times that of 2012. China has not only become the largest robot market in the world, but also the fastest growing market

in the huge injection molding plant, plastic raw materials are transformed into molded air-conditioning parts through the automatic operation of various machines. The finished products are placed on the conveyor belt and transported to the packaging area by one manipulator, and the handling robots shuttle through the plant to transport various goods, while the employees just stand at the end of the production line to pack the finished parts...

this is a recent work scene in the injection molding plant of a domestic air-conditioning enterprise. Here, machines and people have been completely separated. Machines that used to be operated by people can now complete a series of process operations alone, while people are only responsible for the final packaging

robots have become an important force in transformation

with the surge of intelligence and the transformation to the Internet, traditional manufacturing enterprises are facing a wave of layoffs and "machines" to replace people

recently, Zhang Ruimin, CEO of Haier, took the initiative to disclose Haier's layoff plan to the outside world: Haier will continue to lay off 10000 people this year even though it has laid off 16000 people last year. In addition, BOE's Beijing 8.5 generation line panel factory has also enabled a large number of robot operations. This is not only the case in the home appliance industry, but also in the field of construction machinery. Yuhongfu, chairman of Sany Heavy Machinery Co., Ltd., said: "robot application has formed a trend. It is a system that requires the pressure oil pump to be turned on (green) in advance to plan, and we need to change our thinking and management mode."

after the Haier layoff, the author consulted many home appliance enterprises, and found that most well-known home appliance manufacturers have introduced robots to operate, and they are very sure of the efficiency of robots. With the quantitative production and use of robots, their own costs are also declining, even faster than expected. An electric company said that every time a small multi joint robot is introduced, the workload of two workers can be completed, and the cost can be recovered in two years. Five years ago, cost recovery took three to four years. Contrary to the rise in labor costs, the recovery time of robot costs is being shortened, which is also conducive to promoting the popularity of robots

it is expected that robots can be introduced in large numbers so effectively to solve the labor problem currently facing China. Moreover, industrial robots that are more stable and reliable than humans can also promote the industrial upgrading that has been promoted for many years and produce high value-added products

from the sample survey, this is also confirmed. According to the sampling survey conducted by relevant departments in Dongguan, 66% of enterprises in Dongguan have invested in the "machine replacement" work in the past five years, and 92% of enterprises say that they will continue to increase investment or prepare to carry out it in the next two years. Among the enterprises that have carried out "machine replacement", 49% of them have saved more than 10% of their production personnel, and 20% of them have saved more than 30% of their production personnel

according to the latest statistics released by the China robot industry alliance, the sales of industrial robots in the Chinese market in 2013 accounted for about one fifth of the global sales, surpassing Japan and ranking first in the world. According to the prediction of the international robotics Federation, China's global robot ownership is expected to exceed 130000 units in 2016, which is also the largest market in the world

this is the first time that China robot industry alliance and the International Federation of robots and robots have achieved a comprehensive statistics on China's industrial robot market through the exchange of statistical information. According to statistics, in 2013, Chinese enterprises sold more than 9500 sets of industrial robots in China, with a 65.5% increase over the previous year in terms of comparable caliber

some experts say that China has become the world's largest buyer of industrial robots. Many analysts believe that this is a very forward-looking move. Under the general downturn of the market, the factors such as "labor shortage" and "high cost" in China's manufacturing industry are intertwined and superimposed, which compresses the profit space of manufacturing enterprises, highlights the survival difficulties of small and medium-sized enterprises in the industry, so there is no need to choose the address of the channel. At the same time, it also urges potential and capable enterprises to find a new way out in the throes of transformation and upgrading. China's manufacturing industry is facing great challenges of transforming to high-end, undertaking international advanced manufacturing and participating in international division of labor. Robots should become an important force to promote the transformation

industrial development is imperative

for many small and medium-sized enterprises, popularizing the use of industrial robots also faces a major challenge: huge investment costs. Wuxinyu, a researcher at the Shenzhen Institute of advanced technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, who has long followed the development of the robot industry, said that at present, 70% of China's robots are produced by foreign manufacturers, and robot prices remain high

wuxinyu said that the application of industrial robots in China is still at an early stage. In the future, industrial robots may initiate a new industrial revolution. The manufacturing costs of countries with technological advantages will drop significantly, while the cost advantage of China's manufacturing industry may be further compressed. Therefore, it is imperative for China to vigorously develop and apply industrial robots

"at present, the average density of industrial robots in the world's manufacturing industry is 55 per 10000 employees, while the use density of industrial robots in China is only 21 per 10000 employees, far lower than that in developed countries. China is still a relatively backward country in industrial automation in the world. With the advancement of industrial automation, there is still much room for growth in the industrial robot market in the future." Wuxinyu said

CCID Research Institute of the Ministry of industry and information technology recently released a report that, driven by policy support and labor cost, it is estimated that the growth rate of China's robot industry in the ten years from 2012 to 2022 is conservatively estimated to be between 23% and 36% per year, bringing the potential market size to 100 billion

according to the author, in 2012, the Ministry of industry and information technology began to think about how China's robot industry should cope with international competition and pressure and promote the healthy and sustainable development of China's robot industry. At the end of 2013, the Ministry of industry and information technology issued guidance on promoting the healthy and orderly development of the robot industry. A summit on promoting the development of the robot industry was held in Jiangsu at the end of March 2014. At present, the 13th five year plan for the industrial robot industry is being formulated

wangweiming, deputy director of the industrial equipment department of the Ministry of industry and information technology, revealed that the Ministry of industry and information technology is currently formulating relevant industrial plans for the 13th five year plan. It is expected that by 2020, the industrial system of China's industrial robots will have 3 to 5 internationally competitive enterprises, 8 to 10 industrial supporting clusters, and the robot density will reach more than 100

gradually grow into a leader in subdivided industries. Specific to the short-term industry planning, wangweiming said that this year, the national major science and technology project (referred to as the "04 project", that is, the research and development of key technologies and tool sets for the digital design of high-end CNC machine tools and the application of typical products) will focus on supporting machine tool makers, and will focus on promoting the application in the automation workshops of six industries, including automobile engine, aerospace, aviation, shipbuilding and civil explosion

it is understood that many places have also started policies to support the production and use of robots. Some local governments and industry associations in the Pearl River Delta have begun to think about and respond to this problem. Recently, it was reported from Foshan Sanshui industrial park that through the tripartite cooperation mode of "integrator leasing company robot application enterprise", the park has introduced equipment financial leasing institutions to help small and medium-sized enterprises break the bottleneck of working capital for robot application in a way similar to installment payment. In the future, leasing or loan to buy robots may become the main way for small and medium-sized enterprises to apply robots

on the whole, on the one hand, many ministries and commissions of the state are working hard to formulate support policies, on the other hand, local governments are actively establishing their own robot industrial parks or industrial bases. With the three-dimensional and all-round promotion of the supporting policies, China's robot industry will continue to inject new vitality, and the process of China's intelligent equipment is expected to accelerate
