BROAD ROBOT brings blockbuster products to the CIIF again
China International Industry Fair, the annual event of China’s Industrial circles, will be held in Shanghai National Convention and Exhibition Center from September 17 to 21. The exhibition area will be 56,000 square meters. There are more than 300 exhibitors from 17 countries and regions, and nearly 1,000 sets of products are exhibited. The exhibits cover the core components of Robots, various types of industrial robots, flexible intelligent robots, and mobile robots. As well as various industrial applications of robots.
According to the current observation, among the products exhibited this year, human-robot collaborative robots have once again become the bright spot: miniaturized, light-weight and flexible products emerge in an endless stream. Point 1: human-robot collaboration continues to deepen, and more miniaturization, light-weight and flexible products are emerging. Chemical robot products unveiled: ABB, FANUC, Yaskawa Electric, KUKA, Kawasaki, Fujiyoshi, Universal Robots, Stäubli, Epson, Denso, SCHUNK, Hanwha, Shinsong, Elite, Feixi, Luoshi , Daming, Peitian, Gree, Jieka, Yuejiang, Huashu, Huiling, Qinzhe and many other brands lead the development of collaborative robots.
Among these brands, the reporter found a somewhat unfamiliar and familiar figure, that is the BROAD collaborative robot! It is unfamiliar because of the many new brands in the collaborative robot market. BROAD is still a latecomer. It is not as familiar to everyone as some established manufacturers. It is familiar because the reporter remembers the 2018 Industrial Expo last year. At the meeting, the BROAD collaborative robot has already participated in the exhibition and caused a widespread sensation. This time, it will make a big debut in 2019, and I look forward to bringing different surprises!
One year has passed, what surprises does the BROAD collaborative robot bring us this time? To this end, the reporter exclusively connected with Yuanda Robot.
“Last year, BROAD Robotics was still in the product development stage, and the main body of the exhibition was colleagues from the German head office; this year, BROAD Robotics has successfully landed in China and established BROAD Robotics (Shenyang) Co., Ltd., which is positioned as a global production base and an Asia-Pacific marketing center. , and successfully carried out trial production. This year’s exhibition was jointly organized by colleagues from Germany and China Broad Robotics.” Mr. Li Xiangqi, the executive deputy general manager of the newly established Yuanda Robot (Shenyang) Co., Ltd. told reporters this way.
Li Xiangqi revealed to reporters: “Last year’s exhibitors were mainly M6, the main model of the BROAD collaborative robot that was still in the research and development stage. Although the main force in this year’s exhibition is still M6, it has actually “changed a new look”. This year’s grand exhibition will be held. It can be described as the 2.0 version of the M6, which has further improved in terms of appearance and performance.”
“The new M6 has the same load as last year’s 1.0 version, slightly shorter arms span, higher repeatability than last year, and further improved ease of use and intelligence.” Dr. Li Yuanping, the company’s chief technology officer, summed up the improvements of the 2.0 version of the M6 to reporters.
Talking about the specific exhibition form of this industry fair, Dr. Li introduced the details to the reporter. In this exhibition, BROAD will Display four robots in three modules plus a VR demonstration area.
The first module on Display is a press loading and unloading operation using the M6. Ordinary robot loading and unloading is now very common, but the special feature of this module is that the given conditions of robot loading and unloading are not constant and consistent: such as inconsistent types of left and right workpieces, inconsistent positions of front and rear workpieces, and so on. At this time, the robot needs to perceive and judge the workpiece in real time in order to make the loading and unloading accurate, and it needs to tell the press what action to perform between the loading and unloading. This can be achieved because the M6 is equipped with a visual sensor as standard, which can accurately locate the workpiece through QR code recognition, and can also identify the object parts through the information capture of shape and color, so as to select the optimal grasping point, etc. Wait. Through these external perception, information acquisition and autonomous judgment, the intelligent decision-making of the robot can be fully exerted, so that the automatic operation efficiency of loading and unloading when the given conditions are not constant and consistent is not reduced.
Dr. Li said that loading and unloading under this unstructured scenario (the given conditions are not constant) is widely used in metal processing, rubber and plastic products and other industries, and the application of M6 in these scenarios has unique advantages;
The second module shows the schematic scene of spraying, assembling and grinding with M6. There will be spray guns, tightening machines, grinding heads and corresponding workpieces on display, indicating that M6 can already be used in multi-field applications in various scenarios, and in addition to its drag and teach function, it greatly facilitates customers and reflects its ease of use. In addition; its standard ground torque sensor has unique advantages in assembly, grinding and other fields.
Dr. Li said that the application of M6 in multiple scenarios and fields shows its wide adaptability and ease of use, and it can be used in bathroom, automobile, decoration and other industries like a duck to water.
The third module is the demonstration area, with two robots, one for picking and placing small tools, and the other for palletizing U disk boxes. The audience can experience the safety of the BROAD collaborative robot on the spot, and also experience the convenience of dragging and teaching. They can also watch the precise visual positioning of the BROAD collaborative robot, which reflects its sensitive perception and intelligent decision-making level.
Dr. Li said that everyone is welcome to visit booth B020 in Hall 8.1 of this expo to experience the excellent performance of BROAD collaborative robots and give valuable opinions.
In 2018, the domestic Industrial Robot market appeared to be a bit sluggish, and the total market sales even shrank a little. In the face of the slightly sluggish industrial robot market, the reporter expressed his concerns about the industrial robot market to Li Xiangqi. But Li Xiangqi told reporters with confidence that, as an emerging category of industrial robots, collaborative robots have been growing substantially in the past few years. According to the “2018 Blue Book on the Development of the Collaborative Robot Industry” jointly released by the Robotics Research Institute of High-tech Industrial Research and Universal Robots, the global sales volume of collaborative robots in 2017 was 16,500 units, accounting for 4.3% of the industrial robot market share, up 0.7% year-on-year. The market size exceeds 3 billion yuan. From 2014 to 2017, the annual compound growth rate of global collaborative robot sales was 69%. In 2017, the sales volume of collaborative robots in China was 4,216 units, a year-on-year increase of 83.30%. The market size reached 630 million yuan, accounting for 20.8% of global sales. billion.
Li Xiangqi said that the emergence of collaborative robots is to solve the pain points of industrial robots. The BROAD collaborative robot adheres to the characteristics of D-two, namely “Designed in Germany” (German design) and “Designed to Work” (built for use). “German design” makes the product reflect the rigorous, meticulous and solid style of the German nation. The design of this M6 has been nominated for the European Design Award Silver Award and the German National Design Award; “Building for Use” emphasizes the development purpose and direction of BROAD collaborative robots. Under such guiding ideology and work style, BROAD collaborative robot products have formed their own unique characteristics, which are simply twelve words, namely “flexible, easy-to-use, perceptual, intelligent, safe and reliable”. BROAD collaborative robots have greatly advanced the ease of use, intelligence and safety of industrial robots, laying a solid foundation and reliable guarantee for their use in industry, commerce and service industries.
The collaborative robots exhibited in this industry fair are colorful. Whether BROAD Robot can stand out or not has to be observed on the spot. As a spectator before the exhibition, the reporter was also moved by the persistence, focus and excellence of BROAD Robotics. It is understood that the global launch of BROAD collaborative robots will be in November this year, and a large number of shipments in the Chinese market may have to wait until January next year. Please pay attention to this new force of collaborative brands.
