Industrial robot is a mechanical equipment which is widely applicable to autonomous motion and multi-axis linkage. Equipped with sensors under the necessary conditions, no external intervention is required during the course of work. They are usually equipped with mechanical machining tools, knives, or other can assembly as well as the ability to carry out the tasks of handling operation and processing and manufacturing, has been widely used in automobiles, electronics, information products and other modern manufacturing industry.
Domestic since 2014, along with the demographic dividend gradually disappear, the high prices of raw materials, various manufacturing enterprise cost rising, to industrial automation has brought strong power. Industrial robot is the demand of the market as a result, the domestic and the world is about to enter eruption period, China's potentially huge market demand to the horizon, domestic and international standard has not yet formed unified, its core technology has huge development space, and with the original industrial and manufacturing system has a wide range of contact, the application range of the product and its widely.
Domestic industrial robot is mainly used in the automotive industry, but the more high-end products downstream industry more spread out, so in laser cutting, glue, plastic injection, welding, assembly, and other fields have larger growth space. One of the most attractive features of industrial robots in China's manufacturing sector is the substitution of artificially reduced costs.
A simple moving robot, which costs the equivalent of three years' wages, has a life expectancy of more than 10 years. Private companies are planning to replace some workers with machines for cost. Cost leadership of technology upgrading in China has a huge market space, in particular, some work in dangerous and bad environment, such as stamping, casting, heat treatment, welding, painting, plastic forming, such as simple mechanical processing and assembly process and in the nuclear industry and other departments, complete the harmful material handling or process operations, all need are done by a large number of industrial robots.
In the next few years, with the development of manufacturing industry in our country, especially for industrial robot is mainly used in the field of automobile and auto parts manufacturing, rapid growth of industrial robot assembly quantity will rise. Coupled with the growing demand in the electronic information industry and in the fields of construction and mining, industrial robots are expected to grow at an average annual rate of around 25% in the next three to five years. In addition, mobile robots used for logistics and transportation will increase by no less than 20 percent per year due to the rapid growth of the automated three-dimensional warehouse to 40 to 60 a year.
As a result, the pace of industrial robot development has only just begun.
