Cixing Fangtai and other enterprises have a try on "smart manufacturing"
In recent years, Ningbo has been committed to promoting the transformation and upgrading of industrial markets to industrial strong cities. In the Hangzhou Bay New District, many private enterprises have invested heavily in the exploration of testing and intelligent manufacturing.
Intelligent manufacturing is an important meeting point for the technological revolution and the industrial revolution, and it is also the main field for the integration of new generation information technology and manufacturing technology. On May 19 this year, "Made in China 2025" was officially released, becoming the first ten-year action plan for comprehensively implementing the strategy of manufacturing and strengthening the country. Intelligent manufacturing is an essential part of “Made in China 2025”, highlighting the innovation drive and vigorously developing smart manufacturing. It is an important way to get manufacturing competitiveness.
The self-developed sweater of Cixing has broken through the traditional sweater stitching only through the cumbersome artificial vision. The picture shows the robot playing against the workers. As a result, the robot completed the same sweater stitching in only 1/3 of the labor time.
Fang Tai occupied nearly half of China's first batch of intelligent home appliances.
In the context of "Internet +", Intelligent home appliances are increasingly favored by users and brand companies, ranging from refrigerator, washing machines to microwave ovens, and almost all products are beginning to incorporate smart elements.
Not long ago, China's first batch of home appliances that passed the evaluation of smart home appliances was officially announced. The five products of Fangtai Intelligent Hoods won the title of “China Smart Home Appliances” with practical and meaningful intelligent technology.
Among the first 11 intelligent range hood products, Fang Tai has occupied 5 models, which is inseparable from the experience of consistently focusing on smart products. For example, this year's new generation of intelligent Fengyun Cube series will focus on the intelligent core areas of product core functions and technologies, with the three cores of “Butterfly Ring Suction Technology”, “Smart Suction System” and “Efficient Static Suction”. Technology and the best user experience to take advantage of this, providing new features including intelligent suction, high-efficiency fume control in all directions and kitchen air management. In addition, through the application of new intelligent sensing and control technology, the series truly realizes intelligent control, remote operation and other functions, making users more relaxed and enjoyable.
According to the person in charge of Fangtai, in order to solve the pollution problem of kitchen and indoor air, Fangtai intelligent range hood adopts air quality sensor, which can automatically turn on different speed according to air quality to detect the content of various harmful gases such as CO, methane and alcohol in kitchen air. , timely discharge of polluting gases, effectively help manage the kitchen air. In addition, the Fangtai intelligent range hood is also equipped with the wind-acoustic function. The industry's first development of the cooking sensation function of the range hood, by automatically detecting the sound characteristics of the high-smoke state during cooking, automatically starts the maximum speed for rapid smoke evacuation.
Qinyuan launches dozens of smart new products every year
According to the “2015 Blue Water Book of the 2015 Water Purification Industry” published on the “2015 Internet + Intelligent Water Purification Industry Forum”, the sales volume of the water treatment market reached 7.89 million units in 2015, and the sales volume will reach 19.2 billion RMB. The market potential is huge in the future. The share of the machine will be further reduced, accounting for only 10% of sales. This means that China's water appliances are moving from the "drinking" era to the "net" era.
While the market is growing rapidly, competition is becoming increasingly fierce, and many companies are springing up. However, due to the large number of brands, water purification products are becoming more and more homogenous and cannot meet the "quality" needs of consumers. How to break the inertia thinking, stand out from the competitive white water purification market, and avoid the industry entering the bottleneck period, becoming a development problem for enterprises.
After joining hands with Unilever, the Qinyuan Group, a leading domestic water purification industry company located in the Hangzhou Bay New District, is constantly moving forward in the direction of intelligence, and quickly gains market recognition through differentiated positioning. In August of this year, the RO-185I water purifier sold a total of 4017 sales one month and once again won the top spot in the Tmall reverse osmosis water purifier. According to the person in charge of the company's technical department, the product consists of PP cotton filter, granular activated carbon, sintered activated carbon, reverse osmosis RO membrane, and post-activated carbon five-stage filter. The filter filters impurities, heavy metals, pesticides and odors in tap water. Etc., where the intelligent function is convenient to remind the life of the filter element, detect the fault reminder, and protect the water safety of the family.
“In first half of the year, we cooperated with the technology of “Home Appliance Cloud” platform, implanted chips on a traditional hot-selling product, and realized human-machine dialogue in the WiFi environment.” The relevant person in charge revealed that a new product like this, dozens of models are launched every year. ”
Cixing allows SMEs to use robots as well
In Hangzhou Bay New District, enterprises such as Fangtai and Qinyuan have made traditional home appliances intelligent through product design and technology upgrades. A large number of enterprises have helped more enterprises achieve intelligence through output products. “Let SMEs also be able to afford robots”, this is the development philosophy of Cixing Robot Technology Co., Ltd.
Industrial robots, that is, robots used in the production and manufacturing fields, aim to achieve automation, intelligence, and the image of “higher”, which makes many SMEs can’t afford the price. However, Li Lijun, chairman of Cixing Robot Technology Co., Ltd, the strong demand of SMEs for them is only temporarily overshadowed by high investment funds. In the future, industrial robots will inevitably enter SMEs to serve them. They judge domestic industrial robot applications. The time of the outbreak will be the second half of 2016.
"We focus on the application of industrial robots -- to make the robot really play a role in the production process, rather than pursuing the entire industry chain." Li Lijun said. After Cixing set up a robot company, the proposed business model is different from the traditional one: focusing on system integration, not producing robot body, but choosing to purchase mature production robots at domestic and abroad, and then setting according to customer needs and production scenarios. The production process sells customized industrial robot systems to customers and provides after-sales services.
"Cixing dare to enter the industrial robot industry and establish the base of the Cixing Robot Company. It lies in its accumulation of more than 10 years in the field of intelligent knitting equipment." Li Lijun said that Cixing have research and development teams in Ningbo, Switzerland and Italy. In-depth research on the production automation of the industry, Cixing intelligent knitting equipment, no matter the precision of the mechanical structure, or the complexity of its control system, is no less than the general industrial robot.
