Wuhu City, Anhui Province, which is located on the coastline of the golden waterway of the Yangtze River, is facing a “golden period” of rapid development.
Many people know that Chery Automobile and Conch Cement are produced in Wuhu, but they do not know that many domestic robots are also produced in Wuhu. In fact, Wuhu and Ningbo coincide, taking the robotics industry as a strategic emerging industry and the secret to “overtaking on a curve”, so as to seize the strategic opportunity in the new round of regional economy.
Yesterday, the reporter came to the National Wuhu Robot Industry Cluster for an interview. In a small three-story building, there is the Harbin Institute of Technology Wuhu Robot Industry Technology Research Institute. In the exhibition hall, there are service robots that welcome guests and deliver meals, educational robots that can play with children, cleaning robots that can sweep and vacuum, intelligent nursing robots that can automatically diagnose the human body, and robots that can accurately locate and quickly sort items. Production robots…
According to Dr. Li Chao, deputy director of the Institute’s Prospective Technology Research Center, the institute is organized by Wuhu Robotics Research and Development Co., Ltd., HarbinindustryThe university is jointly funded and established, which integrates Robot technology research and development, technology transfer, special industrial robots, and manufacturing, sales and information consultation of complete sets of robot intelligent equipment. At present, the institute can apply for an invention patent every month on average.
In Wuhu Ruisi Robotics Co., Ltd., which is adjacent to the hospital, reporters were also attracted by the patent certificates on the wall. The key technology and engineering application achievements of the high-speed parallel robot developed by the company won the second prize of the National Technology Invention Award last year. Zhang Jianli, deputy general manager of Wuhu Ruisi Robot Co., Ltd., said that this achievement is of great value. The robot can accurately position the grasped objects on the conveyor belt through the vision system and quickly grasp the objects. Because of its high-speed, high-efficiency, and high-precision characteristics, high-speed parallel robots are widely used in food, pharmaceutical production and other industries.
At present, in Wuhu, the robot industry has gradually become a prairie prairie. One by one, the robots have become the golden signboards of “Intelligent Manufacturing in Wuhu”. According to statistics, up to now, 63 robots and related enterprises have taken root in Wuhu. Last year, the Wuhu Robotics and Intelligent Equipment Industrial Base achieved an output value of 5.94 billion yuan. Local government departments predict that the output value of the robot industry will reach 30 billion to 50 billion yuan by 2020.
“At present, the national manufacturing industry is in the stage of industrial restructuring and transformation, and enterprises must keep an eye on the strategy and keep up with the pace of intelligent manufacturing.” Zhang Jianli believes that Ningbo and Wuhu are both big manufacturing cities with similar industrial structures, so they must be good at seizing opportunities. Introduce the “high-end and sophisticated” intelligent manufacturing industry and realize the “Made in China 2025” plan as soon as possible.
In fact, including the Ningbo business community, they attach great importance to the unique advantages of the Yangtze River Golden Waterway, and regard Wuhu as an important node that seamlessly connects the Yangtze River Delta and radiates the middle and upper reaches of the Yangtze River.
As early as 2005, Shanshan Group became associated with Wuhu, and initially invested in a garment processing and manufacturing project in Wuhu. In just a few short years, the traditional industries with labor-intensive and low value-added have been bid farewell, and high-tech, high-value-added emerging industries represented by the China (Wuhu) Life and Health City Project have been replaced.
Liu Youjie, general manager of Wuhu Shipyard Co., Ltd., is also an authentic Ningbo native. Five years ago, he led more than 100 employees of Zhejiang Shipyard to Wuhu Shipyard to start a business. Bringing the advanced management concepts and technologies of Ningbo people, a state-owned enterprise with a loss of more than 1 billion yuan has been transformed into a vigorous enterprise with an annual profit of more than 100 million yuan.Southeast Business Daily reporter Chen Xuqin / photo
