Industrial robots are developing fast, domestic controllers are closing the gap between China and the rest of the world

industrial robots are developing fast, domestic controllers are closing the gap between China and the rest of the world. In recent years, with the development needs of global industrial automation, countries continue to strengthen innovation drive and actively promote the development of industrial robots. In order to accelerate the completion of China's intelligent manufacturing strategic transformation plan and achieve the industrial upgrading goal of industry 4.0, Industrial robots are also regarded as the focus of development

the development of domestic industrial robots is in full swing

at present, China has a very strong demand for industrial robots due to the disappearance of demographic dividends and the trend of machine replacement. With the continuous guidance of policies, the continuous influx of enterprises and the breakthrough of technology, the scale of China's industrial robot market continues to expand, the development speed has increased significantly, and the development trend continues to heat up

according to the latest data, the global sales of industrial robots in 2017 has exceeded 380000, reaching a record high, of which China has sold nearly 140000, more than one third of the global sales, leaping to the first place in the world in terms of the number of industrial robots

at the same time, China's demand for industrial robots increased by 58% in 2017, far ahead of robot development powers such as the United States, Japan and Germany, and has become an important driving factor for the development of the global industrial robot industry. Such a strong demand market has also attracted many foreign enterprises to build factories in China, and the influx of a large number of talents, products and technologies has promoted the rise and development of domestic enterprises such as Xinsong and Gu high technology

since 2013, the state has also successively issued a series of policies such as the guiding opinions on promoting the development of industrial robot industry, the development plan of robot industry (year), and made in China 2025, constantly increasing the support and dividend release for industrial robots, escorting the development of enterprises and creating a fair and orderly environment for the development of the industry

nowadays, the application of industrial robots in China is accelerating from the automotive, electrical and plastic moisture-free electrical, metal industry to the fields of food, medical treatment, energy conservation and environmental protection. The expanding application range is promoting the further development and expansion of the market scale

core components have become the main constraints

after years of development, China has made remarkable achievements in sales and growth. However, for the development of enterprises, the gap between China and the rest of the world in technology puts us under pressure. The monopoly of the industry by foreign enterprises also makes it difficult for us to move forward. The victory moment of China's industrial robots is far from coming

at present, the three major robot core components of controller, reducer and servo system are monopolized by foreign countries. China has a significant gap with the United States, Japan, Germany and other countries in core technology and key parts. Foreign enterprises earn huge profits in the upper reaches of the industrial chain and occupy the important middle and high-end markets. Such star products can be described as a collection of thousands of favorites, while Chinese enterprises are widely concentrated in the lower reaches of the system integration industrial chain, Low profit and high cost pressure

for a long time, domestic enterprises can only rely on foreign imports to survive after arriving at FM, and times the import cost has put great pressure on the development of domestic enterprises. Therefore, in order to break the monopoly of foreign technology, completely get rid of the phenomenon of industrial low-end offset, and truly realize the industrial rise of domestic industrial robots, we must achieve a breakthrough in the core parts

domestic controllers narrow the gap between the two sides

at present, among the three core components of robots, China's controller products are relatively mature, and the gap with foreign countries is constantly narrowing. Controllers are expected to become an important key point to narrow the gap between us and foreign industrial robots

at present, domestic enterprises that have been deeply engaged in the field of motion control for many years, such as the control system of Gu hi-tech, have been able to cover all types of robots from three axes to eight axes. Huichuan technology can also deal with emerging fields such as small six joint robots. Enterprises such as xinshida and karnopu have developed their own new generation of controller systems when their additive manufacturing and industrial robot centers enter the establishment stage

as we all know, the more axes and joints of the robot, the higher the degree of freedom, and the higher the performance requirements of the controller. With the development of microelectronics technology, the performance of microprocessors continues to improve and the price continues to decline. Now Chinese enterprises can also develop low-cost and high-performance robot controllers

however, although there is no big gap between China and foreign countries in the hardware of controller research and development, there are still some deficiencies in control algorithm, secondary development platform, development environment and so on, which requires enterprises to catch up in these aspects. In the future, with the first maturity of domestic controller technology and market, it may be possible to narrow the gap between Chinese and foreign industrial robots and promote the development of China's industrial robot industry to high-end
