Midea promotes the strategic layout of "man-machine new generation"

with the comprehensive deployment of made in China 2025, intelligent manufacturing is ushering in a new round of explosive growth. From June 12 to 13, 2018, three months after the launch of the new human-computer generation strategy, Midea Group showed the latest trends of its intelligent manufacturing production line for the first time. By showing the two key links of robot manufacturing and intelligent storage that support Midea's industrial interconnection lifeline, Midea has shown the hard power of man-machine collaboration with examples

originated from traditional household appliance manufacturing, Midea's business segments now span consumer electronics, HVAC, robotics and automation, and intelligent supply chains. In March this year, Midea announced the layout of its man-machine new generation strategy in manufacturing, trying to combine software and hardware with its rich manufacturing experience to create the best cooperation between man and machine. Therefore, on the one hand, Midea cooperates with KUKA, the world's top industrial robot manufacturer, to equip industrial robots in the production process; On the one hand, digital soft power and hardware equipment complement each other, and are actively applied to different processes such as production, warehousing, logistics, etc., to support the better practice of Intelligent Manufacturing in itself and even the whole industry

human machine collaboration, Midea intelligent manufacturing

under the guidance of the new generation of human machine strategy, Midea continues to upgrade its intelligent manufacturing hardware strength ahead of the industry, explore the best cooperation between people and machines in the production scene, and liberate employees from the cumbersome workflow

for intelligent manufacturing, industrial robots are not only an important premise to promote the development of productivity, but also a basic carrier to undertake automation and informatization. According to IFR data, although China's current industrial robot density ranks 23rd in the world, it is the country with the fastest growth rate of robot density in the world. It is conceivable that in the process of China's transformation from a manufacturing power to a manufacturing power, there will inevitably be a huge demand for industrial robots. For the end of the blue experiment, Midea began to implement transformation and upgrading as early as 2011, entered the automation field, and preempted the automation market by joining hands with KUKA and Gaochuang. As the Pearl of the manufacturing crown, KUKA, one of the world's four largest robot manufacturers, has strong manufacturing and R & D strength. At KUKA's manufacturing base in Shanghai, several production lines are busy working day and night. Some of the production lines are equipped with a body equivalent to the trunk of a robot, and some are producing a control cabinet that plays the role of a brain. Different types of robots with a load capacity from 3kg to 1300 kg can be customized according to the requirements of the order. After going through the processes of cleaning, mechanical assembly, painting and drying, cable motor assembly, cleaning, testing and calibration, inspection and packaging, these robots will be applied to manufacturing scenarios in different industries

by combining KUKA's leading technology in the fields of robot body production, industrial automation solutions, system integration, and Midea's in-depth layout and channel resources in the field of big data and Al technology, the two can achieve common growth in technical advantages and business expansion, and push the concept of intelligent manufacturing and human-machine collaboration to a broader industrial application scenario. Wen Qiming, CEO of KUKA general industries China, said: KUKA's goal is to become the first in the Chinese market by 2020. It is the prerequisite advantage of robot manufacturing that determines that Midea Group can promote the evolution of the new generation of man-machine in the Chinese market from a higher perspective

in Midea's automation layout, the intellectualization of production is only a part of intelligent manufacturing. Another point full of imagination is Midea's development and practical application of intelligent manufacturing technology in different production processes in response to the development of the entire industrial interconnection. In the factory of Midea clean electrical appliances division, the first finished product sorting, transportation, stacking and intelligent warehouse building integration project in China's home appliance manufacturing industry is operated. This is a high-quality sample of the integrated application of intelligent logistics control technology, robot control technology and intelligent storage technology within Midea Group. By establishing and operating an intelligent storage system, Midea will realize the automation of all actions and management from the offline of finished household appliances to the shipment and loading of containers. The project saves 85% of the land area and 300% of the construction cost. Then turn on the power supply by 0 million and save the operation cost by 5 million/year. The warehousing capacity can reach 45000 units a day, and the outbound capacity can reach 60 containers a day. It can also check the goods in one second and come out in one minute. Moreover, these cutting-edge practices of intelligent manufacturing are expected to be continuously replicated in many business divisions of Midea, and can be exported and transplanted as mature solutions, which also creates an important premise for Midea to empower other manufacturing enterprises with its own industry practices

hardware and software, digital promotion

of course, in the blueprint of Midea, the new generation of man-machine does not stop at the superficial effort of introducing robots, but to realize the efficient and orderly operation of all links in the whole system, if there is no mature software support and information system, the clamping force of the traditional high-pressure injection process is much smaller than that of the system drive, and the robot with the most powerful function is just a vegetable who can't move. For this reason, Midea actively promotes the interconnection of Digital 2.0 and Midea's publishing industry, and realizes the full value chain operation driven by software and data through the construction of intelligent manufacturing and digital transformation. Today, Meiyun Zhishu, an independent company established by Midea, has a good precedent of exporting mature software products and solutions to other industries and companies. In the future, the independent research and development ability of software, the research and development innovation of big data and AI will improve the intelligence and coordination ability of production system, realize the complementarity of software and hardware, and let Midea provide more intelligent manufacturing services for the society with the help of science and technology

at the beginning of this year, Midea, which celebrated its 50th anniversary of entrepreneurship, announced its entry into industrial interconnection. Midea, born out of traditional household appliance manufacturing, has rich experience in injection molding, electronics, assembly, 3C manufacturing and other complex manufacturing fields. If we deepen the integration of experience, intelligent hardware and software capabilities, we believe that the beauty of thinking about a new generation of man-machine is pregnant with a variety of possibilities to promote innovation in the whole field of intelligent manufacturing
