Robot system integrators – in respect of Employment Development!

Industrial robots and systems integration is the development of Chinese industrial automation. To promote manufacturing upgrades, automated, intelligent, country attaches great importance to the development of industrial robots, to provide financial support in terms of policy development, procurement, application and promotion, but no matter how good robots are not open around the system integrator. Especially in the application of the integrated system of research, is the robotics industry chain is not only highly profitable but also highly technical threshold of links, in recent years, with the top speed of the industrial robot industry heating up, robotic systems integration industry is also gradually warming Copyright Control Engineering All , highly sought after. So what exactly is a robot system integration it? What is the global industrial robot industry development in different modes? How about trends? Quick read on! First, the robot system integration to provide application solutions to end customers, which is responsible for industrial robot applications and secondary development surrounding automation equipment integration, is an important component of industrial robot automation applications. Only the robot body is unable to complete any work needs to be used by the end customer after system integration. Compared to the robot body supplier, robotic system integration providers also have the ability to product design, process understanding, experience and other relevant project application requirements for end customers , can be adapted to provide a variety of standardization, personalized outfits in different fields of application. From the perspective of industry chain, a robot body (unit) is the basis for the development of the robotics industry, while the downstream system integration is a robot commercialized, mass adoption of the key. Body products due to high technical barriers, there is a certain monopoly, relatively strong bargaining power, a higher gross margin. The relatively low barriers to system integration, upstream and downstream bargaining power is weak, gross margin is not high, but the market size is much larger than the bulk market. Second, the global industrial development model robots in the process of industrialization in the global industrial robots, can be summarized in three different development models, namely the Japanese model, the European model and the US model. Japanese model: their duties, sub-levels to complete turnkey projects. That robot manufacturers to develop new robots and production of quality products as the main target, its subsidiaries or by the company on social engineering to design and manufacture the robot system sets the industry needs, and complete turnkey projects; European model: a package Turnkey projects. Namely, the production system and the user of the robot needed to design and manufacture, allMinistry done by robot manufacturers themselves; the American model: Procurement and set design combined. US domestic production is basically not an ordinary industrial robots, robots are usually required when the company imported from engineering company, and then to design, manufacture supporting peripherals, complete turnkey projects between China and the United States similar to the field of robotics company focused on integrated robotic systems. At present, domestic enterprises are mostly robot system integrators. According to international experience, domestic robotics industry closer to the American model Control Engineering Copyright , that is the main system integration, product unit purchased or OEM, providing customers with turnkey projects. Compared with the vendor’s product unit Control Engineering Copyright , system integrators, but also has the ability to product design, project experience, and on the basis of a deep understanding of user industries above, can be adapted to provide a variety of standardization, personalized outfits in different fields of application. Low basal China robot market, big market. Chinese industrial robot mode more feasible is the use of integrated division of labor model from start to maturity stage. That is the American model (integrated) – Japan mode (core technology) – German model (division of labor). Third, the industrial robot integrated industrial application direction of the robot body is a system integration center, must be combined with industry applications. System integration is the secondary development of the robot body, the performance of the robot body determines the level of system integration. International brand for the understanding of the body more clearly how to do integration to be fully functional to meet customer needs. Therefore, system integration or international brand as the core (Fanuc, KUKA, ABB, Yaskawa), the market size is also high by automotive, 3C electronics, metal processing, logistics and other such technical requirements, high degree of automation in the industry to technology requirements more low, low degree of automation of trade arrangement. The automotive industry has a relatively high degree of automation. Selection criteria and robotic production line most foreign vehicle manufacturers are globally consistent. China-made robot difficult chance. In the current domestic robot technology is not yet fully mature, the domestic OEMs dare not rashly use of domestic robots to complete important station automation. OEMs with robot suppliers tend to have one or two decades of stable relations. As with the public and KUKA FANUC, Mercedes and other German BMW with KUKA, mainly common FANUC, Fiat with Comau, BIW and stamping line is mainly ABB, the primary coatingIf Germany Dole, Toyota, Honda and other Japanese with Yaskawa, Kawasaki and other Japanese-owned brands, Hyundai and Kia and Hyundai only. For this car capital, technology-intensive large industries, the stability is the primary CONTROL ENGINEERING China Copyright , laid down the standard will not easily change. The main parts plants in order to maintain consistency, the robot will also give priority to brand OEMs use. Automotive technology-intensive industries, OEMs in the long-term use of robots in the process also formed its own rules and standards. High technical requirements and to fit the depot specific standards, systems integrators, constitute high barriers to entry. Most domestic integrators mainly to do some subcontracting or less important projects, few have been short-listed system integrators to get the first-mover advantage. Automotive industry structure and stability, facing the commercial relations, technical and financial barriers triple, domestic enterprises to enter the high difficulty factor. Along with other industry automation development momentum, especially in the 3C industry, domestic systems integration business advantage. Integrated system for spare parts and industrial robots, based on one of the main ways the future of enterprises to improve productivity, increase market competitiveness. In general, the systems integration market size of up to three times the market size of the robot body, according to the relevant industrial research center predicted that in 2020 the market size of the robot body up to 27.6 billion, the size of the integrated systems market is expected to nearly 83 billion yuan over the next five average annual growth rate of up to 20%. Fourth, the systems integration market trends 1, extending from the automotive industry to the rapid increase of other general industrial sectors integrated business outside the automotive industry, can be seen from all areas of robotics sales, changes in the system integration business distribution. At this stage, the automotive industry is the largest industrial robot applications. As the market continues to improve recognition of robots, robot applications are extended from the automotive industry to the general industry; gradually from easy to difficult, to grasp the different needs of different sectors of the domestic robot, complete professional and technical accumulation. 2, the future trend is industry segments robot’s integrated future trends in the industry segmentation. In-depth understanding of the underlying processes of an industry, the opportunity to integrate modular robots, functional, and thus provided as standard equipment. Since the process is the threshold, then the same company able to master the technology industry, there is bound to be limited to only one or a few industries, which means that the industry will subdivisionOf. 3, the degree of standardization will continue to improve the system integration project is another trend will continue to increase the degree of standardization, will facilitate the integration scale enterprises. If only the robot body systems integration is standard, the degree of standardization of the project is only 30% -50%. Now many integrators in promoting standardization body plus robot technology, the future level of standardization system integration project is expected to reach about 75%. 4, the wisdom of the future direction of the factory system integrators to develop future business wisdom factories or digital factory direction, not only do the future of integrated hardware, more software is an integrated design and top-level architecture. 5, integrated industry consolidation trend is difficult to resist the wave of consolidation. Ordinary robot system integrators difficult to bigger, revenue reached about 100 million facing development bottlenecks. Future industry consolidation process, the process is a threshold. Capable of further development in an industry, the master customers and channels have bargaining power of firms subject to the upper reaches of the body, can become the solution or standard equipment suppliers in the future development.
