There are many opportunities for intelligent manufacturing, the key to grasp the high-end equipment and the future of intelligent systems, to the ecological model development to the base of the model to benefit the whole industry chain. Recently, in the Xiangjiang fund town held Chi Jiang Col Innovation Zone Technology achievements transformation and the new area rainbow high-end intelligent Equipment Special road show, the Hong Kong University of Science and technology professor, robot industry leader Li Zeihun talked about the intelligent manufacturing industry to lead the change of view.
Intelligent manufacturing is the main direction of China's manufacturing of 2025, and it is an important path for realizing China's manufacturing industry to become stronger and stronger. In recent years, Changsha City has built a strong manufacturing province by implementing China Manufacturing 2025 and has made every effort to build a national smart manufacturing center, which has formed the Changsha model for promoting intelligent manufacturing, and has been fully affirmed by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
As Hunanese, Li Zexiang is best known for hatching DJI innovation company drones with a value of over US$10 billion. In addition to his early roles as an investor, he is also the founder of Dajiang and the CEO of CEO Wang Hao. As a professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Li Zexiang continues to practice a unique entrepreneurial incubation.
While expressing the bright future of the high-end smart manufacturing industry, Li Zexiang emphasized that for Changsha, the key to breakthrough is talent. How to cultivate talents for the future industry? Of course, it is for them to create a hatchery, a business platform, that is, the ecological system.
Li Zexiang believes that in the future, artificial intelligence technology will further promote the in-depth integration of related technologies and emerging technologies and emerging industries, promote a new round of information technology revolution, and become a new fulcrum for the transformation and upgrading of China's economic structure.
When smart manufacturing reshapes the industry chain, how should Changsha stand by the air and achieve soaring? Li Zexiang gave the answer.
Where are the smart manufacturing opportunities?
Grab the three industries of equipment, industrial robots, and chips!
Li Zexiang analyzed that in the past 40 years, China's manufacturing industry was almost blank, and it has rapidly grown to account for 82 trillion yuan now. It has occupied 30% of GDP and has become a core industry that boosts GDP. In terms of quantity, China's manufacturing industry accounts for more than 25% of the world's total. We can see that the quantity is not a problem, and the key is quality. This is also the most important force for China's manufacturing industry in the next 10 years. Li Zexiang said.
As of 2017, China's total GDP was 11.2 trillion U.S. dollars, and U.S. GDP was 18.57 trillion U.S. dollars. Li Zexiang believes that if we can maintain a growth rate of 4 points higher than that of the United States while focusing on the real economy, especially the manufacturing industry, the total GDP of China will form a critical intersection with the United States in 10 years, at which time our country will Become the world's largest economy.
Li Zexiang believes that to become the world's largest economy, it is necessary to firmly grasp the three core industries, namely equipment industry, industrial robots, and chip industries.
With the development of Industry 4.0 and smart manufacturing, the importance of the equipment manufacturing industry is becoming more and more important. If it only accounts for 20% of the manufacturing industry, GDP will be an increase of 1.2 trillion US dollars. If the high-end equipment manufacturing industry can increase its capacity to 30%, it will also form a market of 2.4 trillion yuan! Li Zexiang said that the equipment industry covers the core functional components, high-end CNC machine tools, industrial robots, electronic packaging manufacturing equipment and other sub-sectors As long as we start from these subdivided areas, there is a huge opportunity in each area. The added value is at least RMB 10 trillion.
Li Zexiang said with emotion that every small part may be a huge industry. Although the components such as encoders, speed reducers, and guide rails are inconspicuous, domestic high-end equipment must rely on imports. Secondly, in the high-end machine tool industry, the industry's top technology is still from Japan, Germany, and Switzerland, and the country is temporarily unable to capture these hills. This one after another ceiling is also our opportunity. As long as we can overcome, the domestic market capacity will far exceed the sum of the United States, Japan, Germany and other countries.
Talking about the industrial robot industry, Li Zexiang is a leader in the industry.
His students Shi Jinbo and Yu Chunhua founded the robot company Li Qun Automation. In April 2016, they completed tens of millions of dollars in investment in Round B, with annual sales exceeding 20 million yuan. This reporter learned that Li Qun Automation was founded in 2011, focusing on small lightweight, high-performance industrial robots, has now launched a variety of products including Apollo series parallel robots, Artemis series and Athena series SCARA robots, is a small lightweight Well-known entrepreneurial projects in the field of industrial robots. In 2013, Li Qun introduced the first all-in-one parallel robot in the world, leading the industry for four years. In 2017, Liqun Automation has achieved an annual output of 120,000 robots. Li Zexiang said that although this figure is insignificant compared to the size of China's market, he predicts that Lie automated robots will have 10 times more room for growth in the future, and it will become very simple to achieve an annual output of 1 million units in the future.
Talking about the chip industry, Li Zexiang analyzed that the global chip industry reaches 400 billion yuan each year, and China consumes nearly 60%. The equipment required for chip manufacturing is an important treasure, and China has great opportunities in the field of chip production equipment for functional devices such as rear-end assembly, inspection, and lead devices.
For China's high-end manufacturing industry, Li Zexiang is confident. He firmly believes that when we master the core technologies of smart equipment, artificial intelligence, big data, and machine learning, the manufacturing model and business model of the entire manufacturing industry will undergo tremendous changes. Smart factories, smart workshops, and customization will be commonplace. phenomenon.
