With the rapid development of computer technology, industrial robot technology has been big improvement. In 1965, Roborts developed by MIT robotic system equipped with visual sensors that can identify and locate simple building blocks. From this moment the robot began from the laboratory to the factory, General Motors installed the first industrial robot CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , installed in 1969’s first spot welding robot, 90% of body welding work in 1961 done by robots, production efficiency be increased dramatically. When the high-speed economic development in Japan and Europe, the tight labor and lagging productivity and limit growth, industrial upgrading has become an inevitable choice. 1970 Japan became the world’s first automobile-producing countries, rapid growth in vehicle production, the automotive industry automation strong demand. The global automotive industry 1950 – Rapid growth in the 1960s, Germany and Japan car production grew from 300,000 in 1950 and 30000-1970 years of 3.84 million and 5.29 million.
By the 1970s, there was an oil crisis, the United States relative to the large luxury car , a small Japanese cars more fuel-efficient and more popular on the market, the Japanese take over the United States become the world’s first car producer. At the same time, Europe also began to shift more production of small fuel-efficient cars. Automation upgrade the automobile industry to provide a broad market space for the application of industrial robots. The automotive industry has been the primary applications of industrial robotics industry. In Japan, the application of industrial robots from the automotive industry to extend the field of electronics, metalworking, plastics and rubber, food and beverage, but the auto industry has maintained its position as the industry’s first application. From here we can see the automotive industry led to the development of industrial robots. No matter what happens social development are inseparable from the production of industrial, although the factory is now the main building of wisdom instead of factory workers with industrial robots, which let a lot of people can not enter into the manufacturing sector, but can be studied industrial robots in manufacturing industry to show its mettle. From 1978 to 2000, the global robot industry has experienced a period of adjustment in the first round, this round of adjustment is Japan, the United States as the representative of the manufacturing industry background, industry restructuring occurs. In late 1990, before the Japanese economic bubble, the whole dayThis demand for industrial robots peaked. Annual demand reached 60,000 units / year. This round of economic bubble, based on automotive, industrial electronics industry began to take the transfer, to achieve re-division of the global industrial structure, which has been resolved, followed by the rapid rise of the Asian Tigers, are relying on the electronics industry has been rapid development.
1981– 2000, changes in the industry Japanese robot
we are familiar with the brand, Yaskawa Electric, Mitsubishi Electric, Fujitsu, Komatsu, Panasonic, Epson, Kawasaki , Nachi Fujikoshi, Sumitomo etc. have entered the industry. Some still do today, some of them have completely abandoned the field. 20th century Japan, industrial robots basically each company will enter the field, the current situation is similar with China, but not the same, after all, a high concentration of Japanese industry that time, focusing equipment industry, the automotive industry, electronics industry , household appliances industry, these four industries. It is able to see the consumer sector developments in 1990, is Japan’s high prices from the stage, steel, bridges, shipbuilding and other large industrial building in the peak. The facts tell us that there is no lasting rise, this is a universal truth. Economic bubble in the past CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , Japanese companies began to rapidly out to sea, Yaskawa, fanuc, Panasonic, Epson began to expand the Chinese market, of course, this time also coincides with China fully open. After
Yaskawa Electric to enter China timeline (from An Chuanguan network)
in 2000, the Japanese industrial robot market reshuffle basically completed. To fanuc, Panasonic, Yaskawa robot brands as the representative of Japan, began to accelerate global expansion, this round of expansion of the war with the European system of industrial robots very restrained CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , basically kept to themselves the case, together with the European countries continue to open up markets in China.
robotics industry is developing rapidly in China subsequently, and Japan is also experiencing very similar bottleneck. Aiming at the development of the robotics industry in China, a well-known securities companies had released a special report industrial robot that industry data showed marginal improvement, supply-side dominant at low base AntiShells, still continue to observe the turning point. But by comparison with the development of Japan’s robot industry, and industrial robot density re-measurement and comparison with the developed countries, the report predicts that China robotics industry will enter a period of fast growth, 2020–2023 compound annual growth rate of 16%. Optimistic about the body, leading system integrators enhance concentration. Analysts believe that the basis for sustainable development of China’s industrial robot market has three main points: 1) domestic-age labor supply continued to shrink, industrial robots replace heavy work; 2) industrial robot prices flat, “machine substitutions” economy appeared; 3 ) robot permeability much lower than in developed industrial countries, manufacturing upgrade potential outstanding. 2-3 year cycle from the point of view, manufacturing investment is expected to usher in a return to growth in demand for industrial robots or appear upward inflection point.
