Robots enter the ceramic industry to promote the transformation and upgrading of national ceramic enterprises

at the end of September last year, the first domestic glaze spraying robot officially took up his post in Anhua Sanitary Ware Co., Ltd. in Foshan, and the robot battle in the ceramic industry in Foshan was officially launched, which will have important implications for the transformation and upgrading of ceramic enterprises in Foshan and even the whole country. Although China is the largest country in ceramic production in the world, most industry enterprises are extensive production, and few enterprises carry out technological innovation. In Foshan, where sanitary ware enterprises gather, the situation is particularly serious

as an important link in the production of sanitary ware ceramics, for a long time, the glaze spraying process in Chinese ceramic enterprises has been mainly completed manually, with poor working environment, high labor intensity and low production efficiency. With the accelerating pace of transformation and upgrading of domestic enterprises, many enterprises have also turned their attention to the application of robots to improve the poor working environment of workers

at the end of September last year, the first domestic glaze spraying robot was officially employed in Foshan Gaoming Anhua Ceramic Sanitary Ware Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Anhua sanitary ware), and the robot battle in Foshan ceramic industry was officially launched, which will have important implications for the transformation and upgrading of ceramic enterprises in Foshan and even the whole country

robots enter the glaze spraying workshop to solve the recruitment problem

in the glaze spraying workshop of Anhua sanitary ware production line 3, several workers monitor the five mechanical arms to perform various glaze spraying processes: the ceramic embryos that have been dedusted and wiped dry are transported to the automatic transmission belt one by one, and after being accurately positioned by the infrared line, they are sent to the glaze spraying workshop by the transmission belt. The robots in the middle of the four automatic glaze spraying rooms place them next to the glaze spraying room one by one, After the revolving door put the pottery germ into the glaze spraying room, four robots began to spray glaze automatically. At present, there are five glaze spraying robots in the automatic glaze spraying system of Anhua sanitary ware production line 3, of which four are responsible for automatic glaze spraying and one is responsible for coordinated handling. Although the system is still in the debugging stage, it can finish the glaze spraying of more than 200 ceramic embryos every day

glaze spraying is an important process in the production of sanitary ware, but the dust on the glaze spraying site is very large, which is very easy to cause workers to suffer from pneumoconiosis. Now, it is difficult to recruit people with a monthly salary of tens of thousands of yuan in the glaze spraying process. Robot glazing can effectively solve this problem. Even if the dust is large and the labor intensity is higher, the robot can complete the work smoothly. Robot glaze spraying is a mature technology abroad. Robots are widely used in sanitary ware production in Italy, Japan and other countries. The robot system records the action trajectory of skilled workers spraying glaze, which is basically consistent with manual operation. A robot system can replace 5-6 workers, which brings great convenience to workshop production. Peng Dingcheng, director of Anhua sanitary ware No. 3 branch, said

imported robots are acclimatized and forced to develop independently.

it is understood that in order to seek transformation and upgrading, Anhua sanitary ware introduced robots from Italy at a high price in 2012 to try automated production. However, in addition to the high cost and maintenance cost of imported robots, the requirements for raw materials are particularly high, resulting in an increase in production costs instead of a decrease. Therefore, Anhua sanitary ware began to seek partners in China to carry out independent research and development of domestic robots

subsequently, Anhua sanitary ware cooperated with Foshan Xinpeng Robot Technology Co., Ltd. to jointly set up a research and development team to develop domestic glaze spraying robots with independent property rights. R & D projects have been supported by the National 863 program and major projects of the national development and Reform Commission

at the end of last year, the first batch of glaze spraying robots developed by the project were successfully installed and debugged in Anhua sanitary ware production line 3. Qin Lei, the relevant person in charge of the R & D team, said that the robot has more than 10 patents, all of which are self owned core skills that can bring greater economic benefits to the factory. The price is only half of that of imported robots, and the efficiency is twice that of imported robots. According to the accounting of Anhua sanitary ware, after the robot takes the post, each glaze spraying line can save 2/3 of the staff, and the labor cost can be saved by 14.4 million yuan a year

Lin Pingfan, director and researcher of the Enterprise Research Institute of the Guangdong Academy of Social Sciences, believes that the introduction of robots into the ceramic industry for intelligent production has stepped out of the most critical and most equipped transformation and upgrading of the industry. Instrument archives are an important step in recording the technical equipment level and equipment management level of enterprises and institutions. They not only improve the production technology of enterprises, get rid of dependence on labor, and alleviate the increasing labor cost, It is also conducive to the innovation of products and the enhancement of added value of products. Besides, we're back! " The ceramic industry uses robots for production, which also provides a good demonstration effect for the transformation and upgrading of equipment manufacturing and other industries in Foshan

the gradual reform of the automatic production line will be completed next year

in May and June last year, Anhua sanitary ware realized the robot automatic production of high-pressure grouting embryo making process; Last September, the glaze spraying process was also successfully upgraded. Now, Anhua sanitary ware is seeking to carry out the mechanized production reform of the whole production line, and the gradual pace of automobile reform is gradually accelerated. At present, the company is preparing to build production line 5, which will be fully automated. It is expected to be completed by the end of the year and put into use at the beginning of next year. Said zhaowenlin, deputy general manager of Anhua sanitary ware

with the promotion of fully automated production lines, the original production processes and management methods of enterprises will also undergo earth shaking changes. For the application of new technologies, whether ordinary employees can successfully achieve man-machine integration, successfully control and operate various advanced equipment is of great importance. In the automatic glaze spraying workshop of production line 3, at present, in addition to the on-site supervision of the commissioning master of Xinpeng company, Anhua sanitary also arranged 6-7 employees to learn and be familiar with the operation of this robot production system on site. Zhao Wenlin said that arranging them to study is mainly to prepare for the staffing of the full-automatic production line. For example, the current production line coordinator can become a new workshop director in the future, and the technicians can become technical trainers to train new employees.
