On March 20th, Hunan Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company Equipment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company”) was unveiled at the Zhiting Garden of Hunan Robot Industry Cluster. Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company teamed up with Siemens Industrial Software to establish the first Industry 4.0 Innovation Center in Hunan Province, becoming the only R&D and innovation center of Siemens Industrial Software in China with the theme of “Industry 4.0”.
Coincidentally, in Changsha Economic Development Zone, Bosch Changsha has the province's first industrial 4.0 production line. This car assembly line is intelligent and bright, and it will be amazed in the world. The robots operate at high speed on the assembly line, and they can be stored freely. The workers wear clean clothes and conduct man-machine dialogue in front of the computer display. Each component can be traced back to the source, and the huge logistics system picks up the pieces and automatically delivers them...
This Industry 4.0 (Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company) Innovation Center located in Changsha Yuhua Economic Development Zone is to replicate countless intelligent production lines like Bosch. From single line to whole factory, we can customize a “digital smart factory” to form “big beads small”. The Zhuhai Jade Plate has a large pattern of smart manufacturing in Changsha.
What is the Industry 4.0 (Central South Intelligence) Innovation Center, and what are the key points of cooperation and development planning? Liang Naiming, senior vice president of Siemens Industry Software, accepted an interview with reporters from the Red Nets to conduct a popular interpretation and scene depiction of this “high-level” project.
What is the Industry 4.0 Innovation Center? Like the manufacturing top three hospitals
What is the Industry 4.0 (Central South Intelligence) Innovation Center? What role did Siemens Industrial Software and Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company play during the period? Liang Naiming explained with an image metaphor: "Industry 4.0 Innovation Center is like the 'Top Three Hospitals' of manufacturing industry. Once the production enterprises encounter 'incurable diseases' such as manufacturing, planning and design, they can bring problems to the innovation center. Conducting a 'consultation', Siemens Industry Software issued a 'prescription' to provide a viable solution for the company, and the Central South Intelligent Tool 'surgery', really help it to achieve product upgrades and upgrades."
To the top three hospitals to "see a doctor" is nothing more than two types of enterprises, one is a high-growth enterprise eager to obtain the industrialization of intelligent manufacturing, and urgently need to improve production efficiency and achieve long-term development. The first category is a traditional enterprise facing transformation and upgrading, and wants to carry out intelligent transformation.
In the Industry 4.0 Innovation Center, it is foreseeable in the future that a small production line of upper and lower materials is running non-stop, while a computer on the side shows the simulation animation of this production line. Liang Naiming told reporters that before the physical production line was built, designers had already performed a simulation in the virtual space, from design to planning, from process to process, from machine tool to robot... all processes were rigorously tested, deduced and simulated. .
"To make a simple analogy, in the industrial 3.0 era, before a mobile phone is put into production, the first thing to do is to make a prototype, detect the problem, and then make a prototype, so the third, fourth... until the prototype is completely free of problems. Mass production. You can see that this process is time consuming, consumable, and costly. In the Industry 4.0 Innovation Center, the prototype was completed in the virtual space, which greatly improved efficiency and saved costs. And the production line is the same.” Liang Naiming said that the Industry 4.0 Innovation Center will provide enterprises with integrated automation solutions from product to production line, from production line to the entire plant.
The “smart factory” created in the Innovation Center enables digital traceability, product information to be shared, and testing to be done on a computer, ultimately reducing costs, increasing production efficiency, and reducing time-to-market.
What is the development goal of the Innovation Center? Do "Huawei" in the robot industry
Industry 4.0 (Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company) Innovation Center has a development goal, which is to become the most competitive value terminal in the industrial Internet era. “Like mobile phones, it is the end product of the mobile Internet era. Then, our robot production line is the end product of the industrial Internet era.” In the heart of Hunan Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company Equipment Co., Ltd., Yang Xinxin, Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company teamed up with Siemens Industrial Software to build industry. The 4.0 Innovation Center is to become the "Huawei" in the robotics industry.
"Everyone knows that the public will not spend more than a few hundred dollars to buy because of the good quality of mobile phone calls. Now, consumers' demand for information products is focused on features, safety and application requirements. How to ensure the safety and applicability of the robot production line, how to integrate with the entire command system, how human-machine cooperation and human-computer interaction are harmonious, this is a major goal of Siemens Industrial Software and Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company Cooperation." Yang Lan introduced.
The signing of Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company and Siemens Industrial Software is not an intentional signing, and many ideas and solutions are already on the way. In the development map of the Industry 4.0 Innovation Center, the tentacles will extend to the industry-wide transformation. Liang Naiming pointed out: "For example, in the traditional textile industry, we will build a smart manufacturing demonstration line, and then cooperate with the Textile Industry Federation to promote the transformation and upgrading of the intelligent manufacturing of the textile industry." At present, Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company has joined the China Textile Industry Federation. All-round cooperation has been carried out.
What will Siemens Industrial Software enter for Changsha? Liang Naiming listed the development path of Industry 4.0 (Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company) Innovation Center: “The first step is to introduce the world's top latest technology and process control technology from Siemens Industrial Software. Next, provide some industry solutions for different industries. This involves eight major industries, such as automobile and locomotive, aerospace, defense and military, mechanical equipment, and medical manufacturing. The third step is to introduce a talent training mechanism to help local enterprises to upgrade. Finally, use the platform to incubate and let young people who are innovative and entrepreneurial. You can get in touch with this platform to learn the latest industrial software technology in the world."
How to layout promotion? Draw a big pattern of "big beads, beads, jade plate"
At present, a new round of industrial revolution on a global scale is exploding. In the face of "German Industry 4.0", Japan's "Robot New Strategy" and "American Industrial Internet", as a "China Made 2025" pilot demonstration city, how to win? How to achieve a corner overtaking in the global stage of the smart equipment manufacturing industry?
As the partner of the Industry 4.0 Innovation Center, the predecessor of Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company is Changtai Robot, the nation's leading manufacturer of intelligent terminal for the robot industry.
"A decade ago, when Changtai started, we went from a single machine to a whole factory. We have been learning, but the learning is not systematic enough, so that development has always been limited. Now, in cooperation with Siemens, we are going to bring the 4.0 technology system to Changsha. It is systematically applied to the design and planning of Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company whole plant automation and complete line automation.” Yang Lan said that the cooperation between Hunan Central South Intelligent Equipment company and Siemens Industrial Software “is like a teenager who learns art and sees the martial arts cheats.”
If we want to achieve "cylinder overtaking", we must embrace an open attitude to meet new ideas and new technologies. It is impossible to achieve "curve overtaking" by "closed doors." Yang Lan said frankly: "Siemens as the world's top 500, the creator and initiator of Industry 4.0, led us to start from the top design and planning, so that we can focus more precisely on the 'Made in China 2025' requirement."
Changsha has a good industrial base and a good innovation model. This is also the industry's favorite software for Siemens, and the final layout of Changsha's thoughts and choices. After the Industrial 4.0 Innovation Center landed, how to help Changsha smart manufacturing, Liang Naiming said that he will always be committed to helping Changsha manufacturing find the most suitable path and method for intelligent manufacturing improvement. He said that the Industry 4.0 Innovation Center focuses on development and must rely on the vast manufacturing industry in Changsha.
The goal, plan and concept of Industry 4.0 will start from this innovation center in Changsha, forming a large-scale smart manufacturing pattern of “Dazhu Beads and Jade Plates”. Liang Naiming said: "Our goal and strategic intent are very clear, is to create a Changsha version of 'Industry 4.0', to create a success case and standard, become a standard model of 'Made in China 2025'. There are still 2025 In seven or eight years, we worked hard to make this model a success and then promote it in China."
