The first step in intelligent manufacturing is to use mobile robots

The rapid development of China’s e-commerce and the transformation and upgrading of intelligent manufacturing have provided mobile Robots with rich application scenarios and broad development space. With the continuous upgrading of mobile robot technology, product forms and solutions have become increasingly diversified, and application scenarios Continue to expand and promote the in-depth development of digitalization and intelligence in the industry.

  Mobile robots are the basis for building smart factories

Intelligent manufacturing is not simply replacing human labor with robots to produce products, but a complete set of systems. The first step is to open up logistics, use mobile robots to transport various items, and physically connect discrete systems. Manually maintaining the circulation of items, not to mention that the efficiency cannot keep up, and it is difficult to ensure smooth connection.

Mobile robots have obvious advantages in Industrial applications. They have unique advantages in positioning and navigation, environment perception, system scheduling, and collaborative control. It is also strong, and can better serve the intelligent production system and make it more effective.

For example, in semiconductor production, wafers are high-cost raw materials and are extremely fragile. Once there is a vibration during the handling process, the wafer may be broken and become a defective product. Moreover, the wafer manufacturing workshop also needs dust-free treatment, and frequent manual operations are difficult. To avoid pollution, the use of mobile robots has become the most reliable choice. Its operation is stable and easy to keep clean, which effectively guarantees the yield rate of wafer production.

In addition, the risk of uncertainty in the current economic environment has increased, and “black swan events” similar to the epidemic have occurred frequently, so a more flexible and flexible logistics system is particularly important for enterprises. The smart logistics system built by mobile robot solutions It can flexibly adapt to various scenarios and help enterprises respond to changes in business and product requirements in a timely manner.

With the continuous advancement of intelligent manufacturing and the gradual maturity of mobile robot technology, its flexibility, precision and adaptability are constantly improving, allowing mobile robots to be applied in batches in more scenarios, especially in new energy, automobiles, lithium batteries, The application scale of photovoltaic, petrochemical, 3C and other industries is accelerating.

  Mobile robots will grow at a rate of 50% in the next few years

In the long run, the driving forces of scarcity of labor, rising labor costs, growth of e-commerce, and transformation of flexible manufacturing will continue to accelerate the development of the mobile robot market. The data shows that the global mobile robot market will be about 28 billion yuan in 2022, and it is expected to exceed 100 billion yuan in 2026, with a compound annual growth rate of over 35%.

The “2022 Mobile Robot Market Report” released by Interact Analysis, a global authoritative organization, also shows that the mobile robot market will grow significantly in 2021, with shipments increasing by more than 70%. % growth rate, the industry revenue maintains an annual growth rate of 30%-40%.

In the application of mobile robots, it can be roughly divided into two aspects: warehousing logistics robots and industrial logistics robots, among which:

Warehousing and logistics robots used in order fulfillment scenarios have strong market demand and growth momentum. In 2021, the global deployment of warehouse logistics robots is higher than the sum of the previous two years, and it is expected to account for 73% of the total deployment of all mobile robots by 2027. ;

For industrial logistics robots used in material handling scenarios, it is estimated that by 2025, the market size of AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicle) and AMR (Autonomous Mobile Robot) will reach US$11 billion, and by the end of 2027, the deployment of robots will exceed 1 million units .
