5g blessing, the traditional workshop become “smart”

More and more enterprises begin to use “5g + industrial Internet” to build intelligent factories. With the deepening integration of mobile 5g network and enterprise production, the “pain points” of production will be solved one by one, and the appearance of “intelligent factories” will become increasingly clear in the future.

“Our raw material is coal, but there is no coal dust in the factory.” In Shenhua Xinjiang Chemical Co., Ltd., the automatic production line “packs” countless rice like polyolefins into bags and transports them to downstream enterprises for the production of all kinds of plastic products. By strengthening scientific and technological research, the company’s smart factory has improved its production efficiency, increased its energy conversion rate from 35% in 2017 to 41% at present, and reduced its comprehensive energy consumption for producing 1 ton of ethylene and propylene from 3178kg of standard coal in 2017 to 2657kg of standard coal at present.

In order to solve the problems of increasing production capacity, rising labor costs and lack of skilled labor, more and more enterprises begin to use “5g + industrial Internet” to build intelligent factories, deeply optimize production processes and improve production efficiency.

According to the data of tianyancha professional edition, there are about 18000 enterprises engaged in 5g and industrial Internet related businesses in China. In terms of geographical distribution, Liaoning Province has the largest number of related enterprises, reaching 2000. Guangdong Province and Hebei Province ranked second and third. In the past five years, the number of enterprises engaged in 5g and industrial Internet related business in China has increased steadily. As of November 10, China has added nearly 1200 related enterprises this year, up 59% from last year.

The workshop is becoming more and more intelligent

There was no hot work scene and no noisy homework. In the production workshop of electrode foil company of Xinjiang Zhonghe Co., Ltd., there are almost no workers, only a thin roll of formed foil slowly spits out from the production equipment. Then, the intelligent AGV robot car was in place immediately, running back and forth with the foil roll, and cooperating very well. All these operations were completed by the operator in the control room.

It is reported that before the use of intelligence, the control of a series of links in the production process basically depends on personal experience. The digital production of intelligent factory completely subverts the traditional labor-intensive production mode, and can effectively control the quality of products in the production process.

Through digitization, more and more traditional industries are becoming intelligent. Xinjiang Goldwind technology has set up a wind power smart operation system, developed and applied a series of information platforms, collected, transmitted and analyzed wind farm operation data information, and generated a smart operation and maintenance service support platform with intelligent analysis, fault warning, expert support, knowledge sharing and other functions; Xinjiang TBEA has continued to develop around the data center, industrial Internet and other new infrastructure areas “Smart power plant”, “smart mine” and other digital, information and intelligent demonstration projects

Yida group has three spinning factories in Urumqi, Changji and Turpan. The whole process intelligent production workshop of Yida group has realized automation. Besides remote central control operation, the whole production line can also realize mobile app management. Intelligent mechanical production of ten thousand yarn requires 15 people, while the old production line needs 60 people to produce ten thousand yarn.

Jinjiang, famous for its traditional manufacturing industry, relies on 5g technology to build an intelligent chemical plant, which reduces labor costs and improves production efficiency. In the suit cutting workshop of Jinjiang Qipai group, an intelligent logistics handling robot (AGV) is transporting the fabric just cut by workers to the trousers workshop. The robot can go up and down the elevator and enter and exit the rolling door by itself, and shuttle freely in different floors of different buildings. It is understood that this is the first commercial 5g independent networking industrial module landing application project in the shoes and clothing textile industry in China, which is expected to increase by 150% compared with manual handling and reduce personnel costs by 70%.

“Wind vane” of Industrial Development

“The application of 5g technology in industrial upgrading and the construction of smart factory through 5g network can greatly improve production efficiency and save labor costs.” At present, building a smart chemical plant has become the “wind vane” in the industry.

Industry insiders said that through intelligent transformation and strengthening the application of numerical control technology, traditional industrial enterprises can reduce labor by at least 30% and shorten the product development cycle by more than 40%. In the face of this year’s epidemic, when the staff can not return to their posts, the demand for orders fluctuates frequently, and the social demand changes dramatically, intelligent manufacturing once again “shows its talents”, and effectively solves the problems caused by the epidemic with the characteristics of high efficiency, flexibility, and reducing labor employment.

In recent years, the epidemic has had a great impact on the economy, but there are still many traditional industries relying on Intelligent Manufacturing for transformation. Anta has an annual production capacity of 11 million pairs of sports shoes, Huamin technology has an annual production capacity of 2500 tons of mesh cloth, and many other projects have actively introduced intelligent production lines. Libang, the paint production company with the largest sales volume in the Asia Pacific region, has opened up a base in Guanqiao Park of Quanzhou Development Zone, and will build a new intelligent and green paint factory

With the development of intelligent manufacturing, the traditional workshop has changed a lot. In the ironmaking plant of Bayi Iron and Steel Co., Ltd., there is one central control room for three 2500 m3 blast furnaces. In the central control room, we have a panoramic view of the operation conditions of the three blast furnaces. At the same time, the working environment of workers is getting better and better.

According to the data of industry and Information Technology Department of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, there are more than 40 enterprises with certain scale in Xinjiang that have clearly developed intelligent manufacturing, and intelligent manufacturing has become the main mode to promote the transformation and upgrading of traditional industries and create new momentum. At present, Xinjiang has cultivated 9 National Intelligent Manufacturing pilot demonstration project enterprises in the fields of power transmission and transformation, light industry, petrochemical industry, new energy, new materials, biomedicine, building materials, textile and other industries, 11 intelligent manufacturing new mode application project enterprises with national financial support, and 2 intelligent manufacturing standardization project enterprises, with obvious demonstration effect and prominent transformation and upgrading effect.

According to the data from Quanzhou Bureau of industry and information technology, at present, more than half of the industrial enterprises above the designated size in the city participate in the intelligent transformation and upgrading of “CNC generation”, with more than 2500 enterprises, more than 10000 industrial robots have been promoted, nearly 1000 digital production lines have been built, and more than 100 intelligent workshops have been built, adding new wings to the intelligent transformation of traditional industries.

“Smart +”, press “accelerator”

On November 3, the die casting parts were fully automatic produced in No. 6 factory of ecodi in Hongtang science and Technology Innovation Park, Jiangbei, Ningbo. Aikedi No.6 plant, which was completed and put into operation, is the first full 5g smart plant in China. More than 200 devices in the plant are all connected to 5g + cloud integrated industrial Internet platform through mobile 5g network. In the past, the workload of an hour can be completed in about 15 minutes in this smart factory.

Industry insiders pointed out that 5g pressed the “accelerator button” for the construction of industrial Internet. Relying on the network characteristics of 5g large bandwidth, high speed and low delay, the workshop and even the whole factory of manufacturing enterprises are undergoing “transformation”. With the deepening integration of mobile 5g network and enterprise production, the “pain points” of production will be solved one by one, and the appearance of “intelligent factory” in the future will be increasingly clear.

In the 5g era of large bandwidth, low latency and massive connectivity, the intelligent “future dream” of industrial manufacturing can be built. It is understood that 5g, combined with big data analysis and AI intelligence, can make detection, analysis and prediction solutions for enterprise production problems in near real time, so that the production line can “think”.

Accelerating the construction of new infrastructure such as industrial Internet, 5g and data center has also received more and more policy support. The Ministry of industry and information technology issued the notice on accelerating the development of industrial Internet, proposing to promote the integration and innovation of industrial Internet in a wider scope, a deeper degree and a higher level, accelerate the construction of new infrastructure, and enhance the core competence of industrial Internet platform.

The reporter learned from the Department of industry and information technology of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region that according to the plan, by 2020, Xinjiang will initially build an industrial Internet network infrastructure with low delay, high reliability and wide coverage; by 2025, we will strive to cultivate two or three industrial Internet platforms that have reached the international advanced level, and focus on promoting 100 industrial enterprises to rely on the industrial Internet platform to implement digitization and networking And intelligent upgrade. This year, Urumqi has promoted the deep integration of digital economy and real economy, accelerated the pace of 5g business, actively promoted the construction of big data center, and strengthened the construction of new infrastructure such as artificial intelligence and industrial Internet.
