Five minefields for non-standard automation transformation in factories

Release time:2023-05-15author:Dongguan muramoto Automation Equipment Co.,Ltd.

Entering the "Robot Revolution", many enterprises have already embarked on the "no return" path of non-standard automation equipment in factories, and unmanned factories seem to be gradually becoming the development trend of future factories. However, fully automated assembly lines have sporadically appeared in large enterprises. Despite the government's strong promotion of robot replacement policies, many enterprises have received subsidies from the government and simply "air" their equipment in production workshops.

Unmanned factory, fully automated assembly line, robot

Error 1: Introducing robots is about upgrading and transforming automation

The application of robots is a representative aspect of automation upgrading and transformation. But it doesn't mean it can solve all problems. Pneumatic hydraulic control and non-standard equipment automation are also very important means to achieve automation. Especially for some special applications that robots cannot solve, non-standard automation equipment is the answer. Automation upgrading and transformation should not only focus on robots, but also on multiple channels.

Error 2: The robot can be used when bought back

As an intelligent device, robots are not easily installed and debugged for use. If the development (or secondary development) and application of robots are ignored, it will lead to many robots being purchased and not being used or used improperly. Taking robots and sports athletes as an analogy, a group of good athletes (robots) and a good coach (system integrator) are the key to winning the entire team (enterprise).

Error 3: Automation upgrade and transformation can be achieved in one step

The true automation upgrade and transformation is not just a simple workstation or machine replacement, but an extremely complex system engineering. Automation transformation needs to be carried out within our capabilities, starting from relatively mature automation technology and starting from the parts of the factory that urgently need to be upgraded and renovated, gradually progressing, and not pursuing one-step implementation.

Error 4: Any process can be replaced by automated equipment

Products produced using automated production lines should have a sufficient output; The product design and process should be advanced, stable, reliable, and remain basically unchanged for a long period of time. Not all processes are suitable for automation transformation. The use of automatic lines in mass production has significant economic benefits.

Error 5: Implementing automation transformation means achieving Industry 4.0

Recently, the concept of Industry 4.0 and Made in China 2025 has become so popular that many enterprises blindly follow suit. Manufacturing enterprises should pay more attention to practical technology and problem-solving solutions. When it comes to general management automation with information as the core technology, the Industry 4.0 era will also emerge.

So, if a company needs to use industrial robot systems, the first thing to do is to analyze their production process and understand their needs.

1、 Analyze and understand one's own needs

Listen and carefully understand your needs

The use of automated systems for assembling production workshops for production manufacturing is aimed at maximizing the efficiency ratio of product production and quality control. We need to go to the production department and familiarize ourselves with the production process. We need to study which processes are the shortcomings of the production process and which processes can be automated to replace manual labor.

Combine short-term needs and long-term goals of the enterprise to analyze investment returns based on this. Don't just skimp on today or a few years from now and decide on the equipment you need to purchase.

B Cultivate and recruit talents

If there is a need for technological innovation, it is necessary to have corresponding technical talents. The automated assembly workshop will inevitably have a lot of equipment, and the company's talents need to have the ability to learn quickly and become familiar with the integrator's system as soon as possible.

C Clarify the responsible party

Integrators and end users are both responsible for ensuring the normal and error free production process. Integrators need to provide equipment that meets customer requirements and expert level guidance as needed. The customer is responsible for providing relevant information required for production equipment.

2、 Choose a reliable system integrator

The industry of industrial robot automation integration has not been established in China for several years. Currently, there is no reliable level of integrator certification in China, so we cannot protect our choices based on these associations or official certifications. So what kind of integrator is relatively reliable?

A suitable scale

As a supplier of robot systems, scale is crucial. This is a large and comprehensive robot supplier, such as domestic Xinsong and foreign ABB, which specialize in system integration and robot ontology. It is still a small and sophisticated robot supplier with only a few employees, such as UR and KMT.

Big does not necessarily mean better, and small does not necessarily mean insufficient strength.

B professional field

A qualified integrator is designed for industry application integration. They are not only familiar with industrial robots, but also need to understand the production standards, requirements, and processes of this industry. A good robot company cannot have a good robot system. What integrators sell to customers must be robots that can produce customer products, not the robots themselves.

C professional engineering team and project management team

When contacting professional robot system integrators, their professional technical personnel or sales representatives usually provide detailed engineering management and implementation details, listen to your needs, and suggest that you conduct a feasibility analysis or preliminary trial production. You can learn about the composition of the integrator's technical personnel during trial production to see if there are expert engineers with years of work experience or a large number of young graduates.

D professional documentation

Professional robot system integrators generally have their standard products, as well as technical documentation of their standard products. Generally, for different customers, they will produce independent technical documentation. If it is a foreign integrator, they will also provide translation documents, but this part may incur costs.

Spare parts promised by E

Although the stability of industrial robots has made significant progress in recent years, they have always been machines. No one has ever invented a perpetual motion machine or a machine that never wears out, so your robot will still experience some malfunctions. So, it is necessary to understand whether your supplier can provide you with the required spare parts.

F Professional Services

If your company is a small and medium-sized enterprise, training a technical server for this system is a huge expense, which means that you may still rely on your supplier for most of the problems.

A professional system integrator will have a dedicated service department to handle equipment service issues. They usually provide phone support, email support, or their devices are equipped with remote support capabilities.

G Clear warranty

What needs to be understood later is some issues related to warranty. It is necessary to clarify the time limit of the warranty they provide, whether the warranty is based on three shifts, and the limited duration of the warranty.
