The industrial robot market continues to be hot, and the sensor industry is ushering in a peak development season
In recent years, under the promotion of the “Made in China 2025” policy, Industrial transformation and upgrading in the form of “machine substitution” or automated production are rapidly advancing among manufacturing enterprises. At present, many companies are actively deploying Robots in various production links to achieve rapid replacement of production lines.
Operating costs have been reduced, production efficiency has been improved, and product quality has been improved… A large number of instrumentation manufacturing companies have achieved reductions in staff and efficiency through “machine substitution”. “Machine substitution” is an inevitable result of social progress and scientific and technological development, and it is also an internal need for enterprises to improve management efficiency and economic benefits, and enhance their own competitiveness.
Robots are known as “the pearl at the top of the manufacturing crown”, and their R&D, manufacturing, and application are important symbols to measure a country’s technological innovation and high-end manufacturing level. Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, my country’s robot industry has developed vigorously, greatly changing people’s production and lifestyle, and injecting strong momentum into economic and social development.
Guo Shougang, deputy director of the First Division of Equipment Industry of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said at a press conference on the theme of “vigorously developing high-end equipment manufacturing” held on September 6 that the scale of my country’s Robot Industry is growing rapidly, and the operating income of the entire robot industry in 2021 will exceed 130 billion yuan. Among them, the output of industrial robots reached 366,000 units, an increase of 10 times compared with 2015, ranking the world’s largest Industrial Robot market.
A robot is a mechatronics production consisting of a main structure, a controller, a command system and monitoring sensors that can simulate certain human behaviors, control itself, repeat programming, and complete certain tasks in two-dimensional space. equipment. Among them, the sensing part is one of the important parts of the industrial robot. The industrial robot needs the necessary information from the sensor to perform the relevant operation correctly.
Sensors are to robots just like various sensing organs are to humans. Sensors provide robots with five perception capabilities, including sight, force, touch, smell, and taste, allowing them to have flexible posture, sensitive intelligence, and fully automated. operate. Robots perceive through a variety of sensors, including optical sensors, mechanical sensors, sound sensors, speed and acceleration sensors, temperature sensors, chemical sensors, etc.
Robotics and automation have become an integral part of modern manufacturing over the past few years, according to a recent study by market research firm GlobalmarketInsights. The vast majority of manufacturers are integrating Robotic systems in their production facilities to increase production capacity, increase profit margins, and reduce operating costs. These trends have created a large demand for robotic components, including 3D vision, force torque, and tactile sensors.
Driven by multiple factors such as intensive domestic policies and a maturing market, China’s industrial robots have grown rapidly, and their applications cover 60 major industry categories and 168 medium-level industries in the national economy. According to statistics from relevant institutions, the density of robots in my country’s manufacturing industry will reach more than 300 units per 10,000 people in 2021, an increase of about 13 times over 2012.
According to the data released in the fifth session of the “New Era Industry and Information Development” series of press conferences held by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology recently, my country’s industrial robot output ranks first in the world. In addition, according to IFR statistics, in the past five years, the scale of China’s industrial robot market has always maintained a growth trend. The market size is expected to continue to grow in 2022, eventually reaching $8.7 billion; by 2024, it is expected to exceed $11 billion.
The development of the robot industry provides a good landing scene and higher requirements for the development of sensors. With the development and growth of the robot industry, on the one hand, the demand for sensor applications has ushered in rapid growth, and the R&D and production of sensors has been further accelerated; The transformation and upgrading of the sensor industry.
