04月25 When German “Industrial 4.0” Met “Made in China 2025”
Area of industrial robots more than 20 enterprises, maintaing more than 30% annual growth rate of industrial robot intelligence equipment industry output value of over 10 billion yuan … … When the “Made in China 2025” encounter Germany “Industrial 4.0”, Foshan, Guangdong, found itself From “China – made” to “China – intelligence made” transformation of the breakthrough.
In April 2013, the German government officially launched the “German 2020 high-tech strategy”, the implementation of “industrial 4.0” program. In May 2015, the Chinese State Council issued the “Made in China 2025”, the deployment of a comprehensive push to implement the strategy of manufacturing power. In October 2015, German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to China proposed to “take all the way” initiative as an opportunity to promote the German “Industrial 4.0” and “Made in China 2025” strategic docking, its core is a new round of technological revolution and industrial change Background, for the development of manufacturing industry to build intelligent factories, to achieve intelligent manufacturing. This strategic docking to ceramic, home appliances, home and other high pollution, high energy consumption of traditional manufacturing-based Foshan to see the opportunity to upgrade the industry, and industrial robots is the first choice.
“We have now accounted for 70% of the global automotive robot market share.” Midea group chairman Fang Hongbo in the acceptance of the China Youth Daily reporter said in an interview. Two years ago, when Midea put forward the “smart manufacturing + industrial robot” and “smart home + service robot” and “double wisdom” core strategy, Fang Hongbo is hard to think of only two years on the “hand” Robot manufacturing giant.
In 2015, Midea and Japan Yasukawa joint venture to set up two robot companies, respectively, production services robot and industrial robots, the current product has been listed. June 2016, Midea announced the formal acquisition of another major industrial robot manufacturing giant – the German KUKA group. KUKA is a supplier of robot equipment for Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, General Motors, Ford and other automobile production lines. It is a representative enterprise of “Industrial 4.0” in Germany, and is known as “the future of German industry” by German Chancellor Angela Merkel. In January 2017, Midea officially completed the acquisition of KUKA’s delivery work, becoming its main shareholder, accounting for 94.55% of its issued share capital.
Fang Hongbo said that the overall level of China’s manufacturing industry is still in the “industrial 2.0” to “industrial 3.0” transition stage, and “industrial 4.0” intelligent manufacturing is the core of the business online, process software. “The two acquisitions are not only an intelligent transformation of the Midea itself, but more importantly, the ability to inspire the industry, so that Midea have the ability to provide intelligent overall solutions.”
In Foshan, Midea is only a manufacturing enterprises miniature from the “Made in China” to ” China – intelligence made ” to upgrade a microcosm. In order to seize the “China-made 2025” and Germany “industrial 4.0” strategic docking opportunities, in Shunde District, Foshan City, Guangdong Province,are building the robot industry development demonstration area – Sino-German industrial service area is the birth of our important intelligence Manufacturing industry new cluster. Shunde District Deputy Secretary, Sino-German Industrial Service Administrative Committee Liu Yi said, the region’s industrial robot-related enterprises more than 20 currently, the industry scale to maintain more than 30% annual growth rate is expected to 2018, the region Industrial robot intelligent equipment integration system will not less than 50 enterprises, industrial robot manufacturing enterprises not less than 8, industrial robot intelligent equipment industry output value of over 10 billion yuan.
At the same time, the park and the German Hanover exhibition company jointly build the first domestic comprehensive robot college, this month will be settled in Tanzhou International Convention and Exhibition Center. Liu Yi said: “At present, has identified four on top ten robot manufacturing enterprises in Germany, will be assigned to the Foshan Institute of robotics.
It is understood that Foshan has more than 25,000 manufacturing enterprises, of which more than 70% of private enterprises, industrial growth accounted for the proportion of long-term GDP more than 60%. Weak scientific research base, industrial transformation and upgrading is difficult to face their common problems. Today, through the robotics academy, these traditional manufacturing companies will have the opportunity to match with the German robotics company to form a “partnership” relationship to promote industrial upgrading. “Not only to the German robot enterprises to introduce, but also to our outstanding robot enterprises to bring out.” Liu Yi said.
In addition to the “intellectual” enterprises in the docking, China and Germany “industrial city” is also docking. In April 2016, Foshan joint 10 Chinese cities and seven German cities jointly set up “Sino-German industrial city alliance”, in order to promote the alliance members of the complementary development, innovation and integration as the goal. As of March this year, members of the Union has grown to 24 members and 7 observers, including Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.
In Hangzhou, in July 2016 formally put into mass production of CHNT new energy intelligent factory, now has been the Ministry of Industry as “Sino-German intelligent manufacturing cooperation pilot demonstration project.” Reporters walk in the factory workshop found that the operating staff of less than 100 people, but to achieve an annual capacity of 230MW, more than 50 percent of products sold to Europe and the United States, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, West Asia, more than 30 countries and regions.
“Through the implementation of ‘machine substitutions’, the workshop staff reduced by 2/3, each year we can save manpower cost of nearly 100 million.” CHNT vice president, general manager of international engineering company Lin Bo Sheng said that the current Hangzhou this Home intelligent factory through the online laser two-dimensional coding and other six intelligent systems, the rational layout of the entire production line, already with the German “Industrial 4.0” requires most of the intelligent elements, representing the highest level of manufacturing in the photovoltaic industry.
In the Ministry of Industry announced in July last year, “the first batch of Sino-German intelligent manufacturing cooperation pilot demonstration project”, such as CHNT list of 14 companies, many of them such as Huawei, Baidu such high-tech enterprises, more Baosteel, Changhong, Haier, such as increasingly international competitiveness of the national enterprises. Germany’s advanced technology, China’s huge market from here to the world, from here into China … … With the “area along the way” initiative to promote, “Made in China 2025” will dock more countries of the industrial development strategy, Germany “Industrial 4.0” Just a starting point.
