China has become the largest global industrial robot in the country of purchase. So far, the general application of the robot is still limited in the automobile, machinery and a few industries, but can be predicted, with the solution becomes more mature, more and more electronic manufacturing industry will achieve the "machine substitution".

China has become the world's largest industrial robot in the country of purchase -according to the World Federation of Robotics (IFR) statistics, in 2013 the Chinapurchased 36560 industrial robots, more than Japan and American, demand is ranked first in the world, and the average annual growth rate of more than 40%. Analysts have lamented, "there has never been a country so there is a huge demand for industrial robot in such a short time."

Under the pressure of transformation needs blowout

Demand blowout behind, is China enterprises to accelerate the pace of transformation and upgrading of the urgent situation in the human cost rising pressure. In recent years, China's population structure has changed obviously, 15~59 working age population growth rate slowed down year by year, and reached the peak in 2010 and,since the beginning of the absolute reduction. Regression of the demographic dividend, the most direct manifestation is the shortage of ordinary workers and wagescontinued to rise, manufacturing cost is greatly improved, the traditional comparative advantage tends to lose.

The most significant advantage of industrial robot is the effective replacement ofhuman labor process simple, repetitive. Therefore, the use of industrial robots has become an effective way to hedge the demographic dividend weakened. We also see that in recent years, to the decision-making departments, to each big robotmanufacturers, are on the beach this strategic highland. Department of Public Works letter at the beginning of a "guidance" to promote the development of the robot industry industry, and points out that industrial robot represents the future direction of development of intelligent equipment, upgrading of industrial transformation of great significance, we should promote the development of related industries; according to the statistics of the consultancy IHS, ranked by the robot body internationalmanufacturers, have been China set up a branch office, and most of them have beenin the country has plans to open a factory or factory, and the industry giant ABB is simply the global robot career headquarters and one of the two major production bases are in Shanghai.

But on the other hand, although the robot Chinese demand has reached the first in the world, but the robot using the density remains very low. In manufacturing, per 10000 workers have robots this statistic, China only 23, less than 332 Taiwan 1/10,compared with the world average of 55 stations also have a larger gap. Not only that,the use of the robot industry is relatively narrow, product application international giants mainly concentrated in the automotive, machinery and a few industries, and in the electronic manufacturing and many other uses a lot of labor industry, each robotmanufacturers are lack of specific products.

 

Innovative application of a wider range of areas

Therefore, we see more and more local companies are actively fill the gaps. Known asAdvantech IPC, in late 2013 the acquisition of professional manufacturer of CNC concontroller, starting the robot industry. According to general manager of the ChinaDistrict Luo Huancheng introduction, the next Advantech will cooperate with upstream and downstream enterprises to research and development of robot, suitable for electronic assembly, semiconductor, food and beverage, pharmaceutical and metalprocessing a wide range of field robot solutions. While the core technology has in the control system, servo drive and motor industrial robot core areas of Huazhong CNC,launched the industrial robot independent research and development, its CEO Li Xiaotao said, the company entered the field of robot is logical, "just in time".

Although more and more local manufacturers to enter the robot market, but in addition to the car light a few mature industry, a large number of potential into the robotindustry, because there is no ready-made robot application scheme, reasonable,enterprises often do not know how to start, how to "transform machine humanization".Therefore, the present Chinese robot market, the emergence of many enterprisesand service for the successful application of robot system integrator. They according to the need of the practical application of the enterprise, do surrounding ancillary equipment around the robot, and even the optimization design of the production line,realize the automation of.

Compared with the robot body? R & D and manufacturing, system integrators to enter a doorsill low, the main competition is a thorough understanding of their serviceindustry. Therefore, we will see some successful introduction of robot automation transformation lines of business, their own into a system integrator, other customer service in the industry.

For example, occupy a leading position in the field of wireless peripheral productsShenzhen RAPOO technology, lightweight robot introduced in 2009 after ABB, and gradually realize the robot operating in the mouse, the mouse back and receiverbutton board assembly and other production and assembly link, make the robotthroughout the whole production system, realize the automation of production line.This is a successful case, the first of its kind in the electronic manufacturing field is.

RAPOO is located in Pingshan of Shenzhen Industrial Park, clean production workshop, every corner of Taiwan and Taiwan orange robot distribution in theproduction line, production coordination and workers. In a labeling process, the two robot fast grab, steering, fitting, division of labor, high efficiency. According to staff,before this process takes more than ten people sitting around the table, always repeat the same action, in order to achieve the efficiency of the robot, now after improvementthen without any artificial participation.

"We will be according to each production link into the robot automation degree of difficulty, the input-output ratio, making the whole production line automation of robot's schedule, step by step to achieve." Deputy general manager, RAPOO is responsible for production management is also a robot career department general manager Deng Qiuwei said.

According to his introduction, the current RAPOO not only itself continuously to the production line transformation of robot automation, but also techniques for "output",help other to introduce the robot enterprise upgrading. The development trend of "this business is very good. But it is a hard work, research, not only need several monthsor even longer to do the program process. Business owners need in the implementation phase of patience and persistence, because just into the robot,certainly there will be a lot of problems, if this lack of persistence, the project is prone to failure."

Robot Era

In the production line of "machine generation" has the advantage of more and more obvious, but for the future, "the robot manipulator" concept is far from the production line so simple, there are a lot of robot development possibility. "The robot at leastcontains two meanings, one is the intelligent manufacturing process, the two is the intelligent products." The Chinese Academy of Sciences, Shenzhen Institute of advanced technology assistant dean professor pointed out that the complete yalei."Intelligent manufacturing process refers to the production line of mechanical hand and so on, of course, even the manipulator, also can through new technologies such as machine vision, and make it more 'intelligent'. Intelligent products more widely, the embryonic form of any perception, judgment and action capability of devices that have a robot."

This broader definition let us can not help longing robot coming of age. Including more and more intelligent mobile phone, bracelets, smart cars, to the service robot,entertainment robot, to us, "robot" in the future will not be limited to industrial production. If a robot named Alfa entertainment robot, have been free to dance, sing,or play football, becoming the first commercialized entertainment robots in china.

It seems that the situation of letting a hundred flowers blossom in the industrialapplication, service robot applications to come, as you can imagine, the future mode of production, life form, will be a robot profoundly change
