[Plastic Machinery Network Hot Spotlight] Since 2013, China's robot industry has continued to grow at a high speed. Even after the callback in 2018, it is still the main force in the global robot market. With the continuous introduction of new technologies such as 5G, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, and the nationwide top-down transformation of intelligent manufacturing, the robot industry will continue to become China's core industry for a long time in the future, and strive to attack the manufacturing industry. This pearl.
However, we need to recognize the gap with the advanced level of the industry during development. At present, the advanced manufacturing level of robots is still in the hands of the four families headed by ABB, FANUC, Yaskawa, and KUKA. They are not only technically outstanding, but also in a leading position in the market, occupying 70% of the market.
To this end, the local industry is still catching up, from the core devices such as controllers, servo motors, reducers to industry applications for a more extensive and in-depth layout. To this day, China has formed a group of representative robot companies that will act as guides to promote the rapid development of China's robot industry. Among them, 10 enterprise representatives have been influencing the development of the industry in 2019.
Let ’s see who they are? What contribution has it made to the industry?
The following are listed in alphabetical order.
1 · Benjamin CSO
The reducer is one of the three core components of the robot, and the advanced manufacturing technology has long been controlled by international leaders.
In September 2019, Hisun Group held a "Press Conference on Vector Cycloidal Reducer and Intelligent Robot Shared Control System". Haishang vector cycloid reducer can be called a classic in the world's high-precision cycloid reducer. In the history of the reducer, it adopts the double cycloid differential transmission to output. It uses ball transmission instead of traditional gear transmission to simplify the complicated manufacturing process. , Reduce the number of parts; make the reducer manufacturing simpler, shorter process chain, lower cost and better performance.
Hisense Group CSO Benjamin said that the large-scale industrialization of vector cycloid reducers will change the technology of traditional high-precision planetary reducers and the market stock of 100 billion planetary reducers; at the same time, it will replace Rv for robot joints Harmonic reducer, it will break the situation that domestic precision reducers for industrial robots rely heavily on imports, and promote the healthy development of China's robot industry.
In addition, the intelligent robot shared control system released by Hisun Group has domestically innovative complex robot control algorithms with more than 6 axes, which can realize the collaborative work of multiple robots.

Summary: increasing domestic voice
In 2019, led by the industry's outstanding figures, China's robot industry is mainly developing in 4 main lines:
First, global companies represented by DJI have stepped up technological innovation, steadily pushed forward market expansion, and continued to deepen in subdivided industries;
The second is the localization of parts and components. More and more companies have participated, and they have also made outstanding achievements in technology, which further stabilizes the safety and autonomy of the sustainable development of China's robot industry;
The third is to strengthen the industry's deep farming. While many robot companies are innovating, they continue to go deep into the industry and thoroughly penetrate the industry, and then feed back to the fine polishing of the product and increase the adaptability of the product;
The fourth is to attach great importance to talents. Industry talents, new technical talents, and comprehensive talents are widely welcomed, indicating that the development of China's robot industry has focused on the level of independent innovation, which will greatly benefit the independent, controllable and stable development of our robots.
On the whole, the progress of China's robotics industry in 2019 is obvious, and the impetuous spirit continues to decline. More is to strengthen the industry's deep cultivation. The controller, servo motor, reducer, and industry applications have made significant progress and gradually formed. With a multi-point flowering situation, it will lay a good foundation for China to continue to grow the robot industry in the future. It is believed that under the leadership of a number of industry figures, China's robot industry will overcome many difficulties in the future and accelerate the transformation and upgrading of China's intelligent manufacturing industry.
