For many years, China has been the world's number one industrial robot application market and one of the fastest growing markets for industrial robots. Recently, the reporter and the Shenzhen Stock Exchange visited and researched a number of listed companies in the robot industry to understand the status quo and future trends of the industry. Insiders pointed out that there is still a gap between domestic industrial robot products and international standards, but the key technologies of core components are gradually overtaking, and the localization of industrial robots is accelerating. In the future, China's industrial robot industry is expected to continue to maintain rapid growth.
Domestic technology gradually catches up
From the structural point of view, the industrial robot consists of four components: the reducer, the servo motor, the controller, and the body. However, the top three components with the highest technical difficulty have been monopolized by foreign-funded enterprises in recent years. The domestic robotic machine manufacturing is seriously subject to the control of key components. At present, this situation is gradually changing.
According to industry insiders, there are not many manufacturers in China that have independent research and development and production of robot core components such as controllers, servo motors and reducers. With the country's strong support and the surge in market demand, more and more domestic manufacturers have sprung up. At present, China has made breakthroughs in key core technologies of robots as an important strategy. Domestic manufacturers have overcome some of the key problems in key core components such as reducers and servo motors.
In the case of Eston, the company is one of the few domestic manufacturers with independent intellectual property rights of robot core components such as controllers, AC servos, and reducers. The core components of the products are widely used in the field of automation control. The rate is among the best in domestic brands.
“After years of research and development and investment, the company's industrial robots and intelligent manufacturing system products have obvious advantages in the fields of welding, palletizing, loading and unloading, bending, etc. Some products such as bending robots and their working units have reached international standards. Leading level." Wu Bo, chairman of Eston, told reporters.
Xinshida has independent intellectual property rights in the control and drive technology of the robot body, and independently developed innovative products such as six-degree-of-freedom industrial robots, SCARA, and network servo systems. According to Ji Wei, the chairman of the company, the company's scara robot is the international brand. The self-produced robot body has exceeded 1,000 units in the first half of this year, and has established a leading position in the domestic robot and motion control industry.
"At present, the key technologies of core components are making major breakthroughs, and some of them have realized small-scale industrial applications and reduced the external dependence of the core components of the industry." A person in charge of a domestic reducer manufacturer said that this can reduce the cost of domestic robots. It will also break the constraints of foreign brands.
