Industrial 4.0 era manufacturing factory intelligent flexible handling solution

In terms of flexibility, flexibility requires that a factory be converted not only to a computer factory, but also to a mobile phone manufacturing plant or other electronics manufacturing facility. In this conversion process, equipment handling services need to be quickly followed up. This has led to the “follow-up” service of the intelligent handling system, which quickly meets the various equipment handling needs of the factory.

In terms of precision, precision requires that the products produced by the factory are more precise, both in terms of quality and for customers. Accurate production is inseparable from the quality of equipment commissioning and installation services, and it also sets high standards for equipment handling.

Intelligent means that the factory will use more intelligent production equipment, such equipment is difficult to handle, and the disassembly is more complicated, such as industrial robots, etc., which requires the manufacturing factory to begin to master the disassembly and handling technology of smart equipment. .

Small batch production means that for each product, there is not much production, but there are many types. To achieve this state of production, the factory needs to introduce high-tech equipment, including 3D printers and so on.

In short, Industry 4.0 actually doubles the potential market for smart handling companies, but also places new demands on the flexibility and stability of the handling system.

Quadruple Day of Industry 4.0

The arrival of the Internet era has broken the information asymmetry in the traditional industrial era. In the industrial age, because manufacturers can't understand the needs of each customer at a low cost, they often use a one-size-fits-all approach, which combines the performance of demand to become a product.

The Internet has changed this situation. People, people and manufacturers can connect at a low cost, so that everyone's personality needs are magnified, and people are more and more like personalized things. However, the demand for personalized things is not so large, which requires industrial enterprises to achieve rapid production in small batches. At this time, we must first do some preparatory work, that is, the industry 3.0 must first evolve into 3.X, the so-called industrial 3.X, in fact, the ERP and MES and other information systems are completely opened, so that all the information islands of the factory are connected. . At this time, from complete automation and partial informationization, it has entered complete automation and complete informationization, which is the industrial 3.0 perfect stage. Therefore, everything must be connected to a special communication protocol.

Industry 4.0 first day, intelligent production

When the raw materials and production equipment are not connected, we need one thing, called RFID, RFID technology. Simply put, this is equivalent to a two-dimensional code, you can bring some information, and his advantage over the two-dimensional code is that it can communicate wirelessly. Multi-variety, small batch, custom production, every item from the moment you place an order online, he is customized for you, all his characteristics are in line with your preferences. This is smart production.

After the production process is intelligent, the industrial products that are finished products can also be intelligent. As a data collection end, the product is continuously collected and uploaded to the cloud for user management.

One of the core differences between Demei Industrial 4.0 and Industrial Internet is whether to start a smart factory or to engage in smart products. Germany wants the former and the United States wants the latter. As for China, we will take the route of combining the two.

Industry 4.0 third day, production service

Smart products continuously collect user data and status and upload it to the vendor, which makes a new business model possible, charging for services.

What is this service? For example, after the realization of smart products, each car will continuously collect surrounding data to determine its own driving route. The entire transportation system will be fully serviced, and no one needs to buy a car. One day, maybe driving by yourself will become a serious violation of law, because the equipment is intelligent, and people are indeed uncontrollable.

At this stage, all manufacturers will transform to service providers.

Industry 4.0 fourth heaven, cloud factory

When the two integrations of the factory are further deepened, another new business model will be born, this is the cloud factory.

The equipment in the factory is now also smart, and they are constantly collecting their own data and uploading it to the industrial Internet. At this point we can see which factories are running at full capacity and which are free. Then, if there are idle factories, they can sell their own production capacity and produce for other people in need.

Intelligent products in manufacturing plants

The main operating modules of the manufacturing plant include warehousing, storage, picking, handling, pipeline docking, etc., and each process can be applied to different intelligent products for automation. All smart products are dispatched by the system as a whole to meet different production scene beats.
