2020 is the year of 5g scale deployment. The unique advantages of high speed, low latency and large capacity connection make people full of expectations for this new technology. What it changes is not only the information industry, but also the robot ecology. Data show that the sales of robots in China last year was close to 60.8 billion yuan, mainly industrial robots (66%).
In the face of this rapidly developing market, a number of powerful companies have emerged in China, among which Xinsong is the best. It ranks first in the top 50 list of China’s industrial robot manufacturers in 2019. Last year, he was selected as “the top 50 Smartest Companies in the world” by MIT Technology Review for the first time.
Public information shows that in the 20 years since its establishment, Xinsong has created more than 100 industry firsts. We have successfully developed five series of 100 kinds of products with independent intellectual property rights, including industrial, cooperative, mobile, special and service robots, which have been exported to more than 30 countries and regions, providing industrial upgrading services for more than 3000 enterprises in the world.
Enterprises can have today’s achievements and status, can not do without the careful management of the founder Qu Daokui. He was born in Qingzhou, Shandong Province in the 1960s, and his childhood dream was to become a scientist. After the college entrance examination, he left his hometown to study in Northeast China. Although he was among the best, he was not interested in his major. One day, after lunch, he went into the reading room of the school. Inadvertently opened a science and technology magazine, a report on robots gave Qu Daokui a great shock.
For many boys, robots are dreams in their hearts. At that time, it happened that star wars was popular, which aroused people’s curiosity and fantasy about the future of science and technology. To learn the most cutting-edge, Qu Daokui made up his mind to apply for the robotics major. After graduating from University, he was successfully admitted to Shenyang Institute of automation and studied with Jiang Xinsong. Coincidentally, the teacher was the author of the report he saw in the reading room.
In the early 1990s, Qu Daokui was sent to Germany as a visiting scholar. The advanced strength of German industry made him realize the unlimited potential value of robots. Two years later, he returned to China and started to set up a research and development engineering department. At that time, China’s manufacturing industry developed rapidly, but the market was monopolized by foreign enterprises. So they decided to develop their own products. As a result, a lot of customers said that they didn’t dare to use them even for nothing.
This kind of response really makes Qu Daokui hold a breath. Since large orders can not be done, then strive for small ones, after all, there is solid technical support. It wasn’t long before the mobile robot (AGV) they developed was adopted by automobile manufacturers and the technology was exported to South Korea. With the gradual rise of fame, in order to better develop, with the support of the Research Institute, Qu Daokui and several colleagues founded Xinsong.
With years of accumulation, they have successfully developed a series of products, such as spot welding, arc welding, mobile robot and so on, and have a firm foothold in the market. In 2007, the mobile robot (AGV) developed by Xinsong was purchased by general motors. Since then, its complete sets of robot automation equipment have been exported to the United States, France and Russia, ending the history of China’s robot import but not export.
Today, Xinsong has more than 4000 R & D personnel, accounting for more than 75% of the total number. It has set up eight R & D institutions in the world, integrating independent core technology, core parts, core products and industry system solutions. At present, its AGV market has more than 10000 units.
Of course, there is still a big gap between Komatsu and other giants such as Japan’s fanako, Kawasaki heavy industry and Switzerland’s abb. Last year, the company achieved revenue of 2.745 billion yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 11.29%; The net profit was 293 million yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 34.81%.
