Guangdong intelligent manufacturing R & D "overtaking": around the demand side "technology customization"

21st Century Business Herald learned that based on the characteristics of local industries, on the one hand, they are providers of solutions, technologies and services to help more manufacturing enterprises transition to intelligent manufacturing; On the other hand, they also undertake the mission of technological catch-up and innovation

recent research by 21st Century Business Herald found that more and more manufacturing enterprises are obtaining more targeted solutions and technologies from these new R & D institutions through customization to realize transformation. More importantly, in this process, the diversity of manufacturing demand in Guangdong has promoted the integration, innovation and breakthrough of technology. After the introduction, digestion and re innovation of some self-developed technologies or foreign technologies, they have realized the catch-up and Surpassing of foreign countries, and even began to export to foreign countries

new R & D institutions help intelligent manufacturing

a worker holding a spray gun carefully and evenly sprayed the glaze on a toilet porcelain embryo. Beside him, a six axis robot is synchronously recording his every move. After that, the setting of displacement button and the input of pressure plate spacing on the potential displacement display board need to be manually programmed. This industrial robot can replace people and complete the operation of the whole process independently, accurately and more efficiently

this technology is called self programming, which enables robots to learn and copy human actions. This is a cutting-edge technology specially introduced and innovated by the numerical control equipment Collaborative Innovation Institute of Guangdong University of technology in Foshan for the local ceramic industry

in recent years, Guangdong, a major manufacturing province, is committed to accelerating its move towards intelligent manufacturing by promoting the application of industrial robots to achieve transformation and upgrading. In this process, new R & D institutions related to intelligent manufacturing such as the above play an important role

the 21st Century Business Herald learned that at present, Guangdong hopes to accelerate the reconstruction of its manufacturing competitiveness, but there are still many practical problems to be explored and solved

one of the outstanding ones is that Guangdong's manufacturing industry has many categories and is spread across small and medium-sized enterprises, which hinders the further application of robots and intelligent manufacturing equipment. An insider analyzed the 21st Century Business Herald and said that some manufacturing sectors in China do not exist abroad at all, so there are no mature technologies and solutions that can be directly copied and transplanted. At the same time, due to the lagging development level, most domestic robot enterprises are still small and scattered, and it is still difficult to meet the complex practical needs

in this context, in recent years, in the process of transformation towards intelligent manufacturing, Guangdong has targeted a number of relevant new R & D institutions, seeking to transmit government thrust through the market, and even make up for some deficiencies

the Collaborative Innovation Institute of numerical control equipment of Guangdong University of technology in Foshan is one of them. Xiong Wei, vice president of the Research Institute, told the 21st Century Business Herald that the intelligent transformation of China's small, medium and micro manufacturing enterprises is mostly hampered by their lack of capacity and poor information channels. I don't know who to call or how to do it. I need the help of public service platform urgently

therefore, meeting the needs of enterprises, especially the needs of the final application scenario, has become the core of these research institutions. It is worth noting that in the reality that technology lags behind demand, a unique mode of technology customization is gradually evolving between them: more and more manufacturing enterprises begin to find these R & D institutions, and they put forward their own ideas, hoping to explore and implement the effect of Intelligent Manufacturing in some aspects or to some extent with the help of the latter's technical capabilities

a representative case is that a manufacturing enterprise in Foshan found many enterprises to solve the problem of flexible inspection of packaged products, but they all ended in failure until they entered the gate of the numerical control equipment Collaborative Innovation Institute of Guangzhou University of technology. The latter achieved a breakthrough in one fell swoop through the integration and innovation of robot deep learning technology and visual recognition technology

yuan Haihong, the head of Foshan dile Visual Technology Co., Ltd. under the Institute, said that at present, this enterprise has put forward a total of more than 20 kinds of technical needs to it, hoping to be met, and other enterprises began to come to the door after seeing the effect

this demand orientation is also reflected in China (Guangzhou) intelligent equipment research institute from another dimension. One of the key research and development directions of the Institute is the common technology of intelligent manufacturing, including perception, control, execution and core components. Xiong Wei said that unlike ordinary enterprises, research institutions that undertake public service functions are more willing to work hard to study and explore some needs of small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises. If a technology demand is large enough and we don't have it ourselves, we will try to make a breakthrough by re introducing and absorbing the corresponding technical team

we choose technologies that are foreign but not domestic, and are in great demand at present. Please follow the operation instructions to avoid improper use. Liu Jia, assistant general manager of Guangzhou Intelligent Equipment Research Institute Co., Ltd., told the 21st Century Business Herald that he hoped to make up for some technical deficiencies in domestic intelligent manufacturing

technological breakthroughs accelerate the supply of intelligent manufacturing solutions and related technical services brought by these new R & D institutions. The most intuitive effect is that 6.2 it is not allowed to install several sections of connected wires in the pipe or on the distribution board of the electrical box, which will reduce the threshold of intelligent transformation of many manufacturing enterprises. For example, the price of a chip detection system for foreign brands is sevenoreight million, while that for domestic products made by relevant research institutions is only one or two million

however, this is not the full significance of the exploration of Guangdong intelligent manufacturing new R & D institutions under the demand orientation. More importantly, in this process, the diversity of needs of Guangdong manufacturing enterprises is constantly promoting the integration, innovation and breakthrough of intelligent manufacturing related technologies. After introducing, digesting and innovating the independent technology of some new R & D institutions, or foreign technology, they finally catch up with and surpass foreign countries, and even begin to export to foreign countries

this itself is a process of accelerating technology transformation. Yuan Haihong, the head of dile vision, said that the technology of realizing flexible object recognition and detection with the help of artificial intelligence has actually been developed in the school for many years in the past. This time, it has been activated by the needs of enterprises and achieved further breakthroughs. Our current technology is basically among the top in China

the self programming robot mentioned above is also a typical case. Xiong Wei said that the prototype of this technology came from an Italian enterprise, and the Guangdong ceramic enterprise has not achieved the desired effect since its introduction. Due to the large demand space, an enterprise under the numerical control equipment Collaborative Innovation Institute of Guangzhou University of technology acquired the Italian company and optimized the technology, finally realizing innovation

China (Guangzhou) intelligent equipment research institute has made great achievements in the research and development of intelligent manufacturing equipment controllers. Controller is one of the core components of all intelligent manufacturing equipment, including industrial robots, and localization is very important

we are already developing the second generation of products. Liu Jia said that the goal of the Institute is to develop intelligent controllers with more optimized functions than foreign products, including better compatibility and better flexible control effect, so as to meet the development of domestic industrial robot industry and the more complex transformation needs of local manufacturing industry

it is worth noting that the new technology and technology integration and innovation brought about by the fourth industrial revolution have also stimulated these new R & D institutions of Intelligent Manufacturing in Guangdong to explore more. For example, in the R & D scope of China (Guangzhou) intelligent equipment research institute, in addition to many common technologies that are in great demand at present, another focus is the exploration of forward-looking technologies

according to Liu Jia, this is mainly concentrated in two aspects: first, artificial intelligence, especially the application and exploration of deep learning technology in the intelligent manufacturing process, such as the realization of disorderly sorting in workshops; The second is to explore the research and development of bionic hand combined with new sensing technology. Unlike rigid fixture, it can realize flexible grasp and will be widely used

according to the analysis of the 21st Century Business Herald by many insiders, although Guangdong is subject to the shortcomings of universities and scientific research institutions, and the research on intelligent manufacturing theory is not leading in China, as a major manufacturing province and the largest application market of industrial robots in China, Guangdong has made significant progress in the research and development of intelligent manufacturing applications in recent years, and is in a leading position to a certain extent

various new R & D institutions obviously play a driving role. Liu Jia analyzed that, but we must also be sober to see that at present, China's intelligent manufacturing technology is far from that of developed countries, such as motors and other more important core components. In addition, at present, smart manufacturing R & D is dominated by small and medium-sized enterprises as a whole, lacking leading impetus. Therefore, as a new type of research and development institution of public platform, it is more important to play a role in organizing joint efforts to cut right and wrong, correct and correct, and tackle major and secondary problems, and concentrate on doing great things
