analysis on the industrial chain of smart factories

(I) upstream industry - sensors

in recent years, sensors are in the development stage of transformation from traditional to new sensors. The new sensor is characterized by miniaturization, digitalization, intelligence, multifunction, systematization and networking. It not only promotes the transformation of traditional industries, but also leads to the establishment of new industries. It is a new economic growth point in the 21st century

no matter industry 4.0 or made in China 2025, the most essential change is intelligent production. In Gu Rongxiang's view, sensors are the key to the whole intellectualization. Because the core aspect of industry 4.0 and made in China 2025 is intelligent manufacturing. No matter networking or digitalization, the front end will be intelligent, but all these will be inseparable from sensors. As a promising high-tech industry recognized at home and abroad, the sensor industry has attracted the attention of the world with its high technology content, good economic benefits, strong penetration ability, broad market prospects and other characteristics

in, China's sensor industry developed well, and the total industrial output value of the industry showed an overall upward trend, accounting for 0.10% - 0.15% of GDP

under the guidance and support of a series of national policies to vigorously strengthen the development and application of sensors, China's sensor industry is facing good prospects for development, and the future growth space is expected

(II) upstream industry - Industrial Ethernet

Industrial Ethernet, as an efficient local area network, has been responsible for sensor data transmission, production equipment control and other functions since its birth. It is an important part of modern industrial automation production system and the foundation of factory informatization. Its construction has become the core of intelligent factory construction

if we say that the automation of the third industrial revolution only takes the production process as the object and applies information technology to it. Industry 4.0 has greatly expanded the application of information technology, and then derived the concept of intelligent factory. Its key technology is information technology

Industrial Ethernet, interconnection, real-time control, and then realize safety and energy saving will be the core technology of intelligent factory. Specifically, it includes M2M that realizes self-discipline and coordination of production equipment, the application of big data acquisition through the network, and the collaboration between business management systems such as development, sales, ERP, PLM, SCM and the actual production process

because modern smart factories have four key points: first, connect all networks to get data. The second is to have intelligent machines. The third is big data. After connecting all devices and people, all data will be transferred to intelligent terminals in large quantities. Fourth, analyze the data and take out the application trend to improve the detection and prediction level of equipment status. In order to form high-speed transmission and big data, ensuring real-time, security and energy conservation becomes very critical. This is the essence of industrial ether construction, with high guiding accuracy

(III) midstream industry - Industrial Software

intelligent factory will be the main line of industrial software product innovation. At the machine level, improve the intelligent level of equipment, improve performance and production efficiency; At the workshop level, strengthen the communication and cooperation between machines and improve the cooperation level of the production line; At the factory level, optimize and schedule production resources such as multiple workshops and production lines to realize the dynamic matching of production capacity, supply chain and market demand

(IV) midstream industry - industrial robots

in recent two years, with the proposal of national strategic emerging industries and the steady progress of the integration of industrialization and industrialization, the field of intelligent manufacturing equipment in China has received extensive attention from the whole society by 2020. With the increasing internal demand for product performance improvement and the rising labor price in China, the pressure of industrial transformation and upgrading is increasing. As a representative of intelligent manufacturing, industrial robots are playing an increasingly important role in the process of industrial transformation and upgrading

as a high-tech equipment, industrial robots are of great significance not only in promoting national defense and military, intelligent manufacturing, resource development, but also in cultivating and developing the future robot industry. At present, some emerging middle and low-end markets have also expanded rapidly, such as the field of construction machinery, and the market demand of some traditional labor-intensive enterprises in the past, such as petrochemical, grain, building materials, chemical fertilizer, feed and other fields, has also developed rapidly. In recent years, by expanding downstream application services, opening up traditional markets and accepting emerging production methods, home appliances, rail transit, ships and other fields are the main battlefield for the future application of robots. In the new fields of general industrial applications, such as photovoltaic industry, power battery manufacturing industry, food industry including alcohol, beverage, dairy industry, sugar, etc., as well as chemical fiber, glass fiber, hardware grinding, metallurgical casting, medicine and other industries, there is room for the application of industrial robots

(V) downstream industry - intelligent logistics

CIC consultant pointed out in the "report on in-depth investigation and investment prospect prediction of China's intelligent factory" that intelligent logistics is the core component of industry 4.0 and the ultimate solution to reduce the cost of social warehousing logistics: in the framework of intelligent factory of industry 4.0, intelligent logistics warehousing is located at the back end and is the core link connecting the manufacturing end and the client end. Compared with the developed countries in the United States and Japan, China's storage cost per unit of GDP is times that of other countries, and this difference has gradually expanded in recent years, while the intelligent logistics storage system has the advantages of saving labor costs, rent costs The improvement of management efficiency and other advantages (we estimate that automated warehousing can save at least 70% of land and 80% of labor under the condition of ensuring the same storage capacity), which is the ultimate solution to reduce the cost of social warehousing and logistics

Under the influence of multiple factors, intelligent logistics equipment has become the only choice for enterprises to replace labor and seek transformation and upgrading in many fields, and the logistics field is no exception. Intelligent logistics equipment is gradually developed under this background, but the unit of a is g. Although in the short run, the use of intelligent logistics equipment will lead to an increase in enterprise investment, in the long run, the saving of human costs and the improvement of efficiency brought by intelligent equipment will continue to benefit enterprises

development trend of smart factory

smart factory will be more intelligent, flexible and dynamic

the organization of manufacturing process will be different, and it will be closely connected with the whole production chain -- from suppliers to logistics to product life cycle management -- across all departments of the enterprise

each production step will be seamlessly connected. The affected process will include: plant and production planning; Product development; Logistics; Enterprise resource planning (ERP); Manufacturing execution system (MES); Control technology; Each sensor and actuator on site

in smart factories, machines and equipment will have improved self optimization and self adaptability to measure the static friction coefficient and dynamic friction coefficient of plastic film, sheet, paper and other materials when sliding. This is in sharp contrast to the situation of running fixed program operations today
