The hottest made in China is now in trouble. Flexi

  • Detail

Made in China is in a dilemma. Flexible manufacturing is the hope that from a large manufacturing country to a powerful manufacturing country, from a traditional economy to a smart economy. A key to China's economic transformation is how to change from "rigid production" to "flexible production". Flexible production mainly depends on highly flexible manufacturing equipment to maximize marketing coverage! To realize the production mode of multiple varieties and small batches. This kind of flexible production not only emphasizes the intellectualization of equipment technology, but also shows in meeting the personalized needs of products

rigid production is reflected in the large-scale production of products, which meets the social demand for a large number of industrial products. With the upgrading of consumption structure, the buyer's market and consumers are pressed for personalization, customization and timeliness. Flexible production and flexible manufacturing that meet the requirements of "diversification, small-scale and controllable cycle" are the key to the survival and success of enterprises in the future

for this reason, from the proposal of the "made in China 2025" program last year, to the "two sessions" this year, to the G20 summit last month, "flexible production" and "flexible manufacturing" have always been topics of great concern

c2m, production on demand is the general trend.

during the G20 Hangzhou summit, the c2m concept repeatedly put forward points out that the development trend of the future manufacturing industry is the mode for users to face manufacturers and manufacturers. In fact, this is a flexible production mode

in short, flexible production refers to the production mode of multi variety and small batch mainly relying on highly flexible manufacturing equipment. This kind of flexible production not only emphasizes the intellectualization of equipment technology, but also shows in meeting the personalized needs of products. For example, the red collar group in Qingdao has spent 11 years to build a full data-driven clothing factory, realizing the connection between customers and manufacturers, as well as the large-scale personalized customization of clothing, which has doubled the company's sales year after year. The person in charge of the company said: "the company should achieve flexible production, but also use information technology first, use digital means to the extreme, and use big data to analyze and mine customers!"

this traditional production line adds an intelligent manufacturing software system driven by big data, transforming the traditional large-scale production line into a customized flexible manufacturing line at a low cost. Manufacturers produce on demand according to the needs of consumers, so the brand operation cost is far lower than that of ready-made clothes, and consumers can use very cheap or even cheaper prices than ready-made clothes, Buy luxuries that only a few people could afford before. This set of overall solutions for flexible production has helped many small and medium-sized garment manufacturing enterprises achieve transformation and upgrading. It can be seen that the upgrading and transformation of flexibility is the threshold that a large number of Chinese manufacturing enterprises must cross

technical flexibility is only the first hurdle

typical flexible production applications are in the field of automobile manufacturing. The United States, Japan and other countries have carried out flexible production around the 1970s. The world's major automobile manufacturers, such as general motors, Ford, BMW, Toyota and other companies have adopted flexible manufacturing systems. In China, factories of GAC Toyota, FAW Volkswagen, Shanghai General Motors and other brands have adopted similar flexible production methods

the production mode of "flexible manufacturing system" emphasized in the automotive field can process several different parts at the same time, which is extremely flexible. Nowadays, these dazzling automobile models and a wide variety of configurations in the market benefit from the flexible production system to a large extent, which reduces the cost of automobile manufacturing, and correspondingly reduces the purchase price for mass consumers

the concept of "flexible manufacturing system" can be traced back to the 1960s. Maalrose company of the United States manufactured the world's first CNC Line for processing a variety of diesel engine parts in 1963. Specifically, this processing system can automatically process a variety of tools in any order. Two new presses are used in the middle parts of the Volvo plate spring full-automatic production line, and can automatically replace workpieces and tools. This high-efficiency and flexible production mode is highly respected by automobile manufacturers, and the development concept has been extended to various fields and industries. Especially in the current industrial 4.0 era, enterprises in various countries aim to improve the intelligent level of manufacturing industry, and their production mode foundation with flexible technology is the key factor for development

the use of big data is the key to flexible production

the essence of flexible production is to make the production process dominated by manufacturers and transformed into consumer led. Because using big data technology and thinking to integrate consumers and producers has become the key

in the application of big data, enterprises can find the market faster through the collection and analysis of a large amount of data. At the same time, through the opening of production links, consumers can be involved in the production process

for example, a domestic shoe manufacturer uses 3D foot shape measuring instrument to collect data and produce shoes of different last types according to foot shapes in different regions, so as to achieve the goal of better matching the foot shape needs of the local population. Users only need to leave 3D foot shape data, and can choose the desired fabric, outsole, color, shoelace, special logo, etc. After receiving the personalized order, the system will transfer the demand to the factory and upload it to the cloud as the basis of consumer preferences, so as to facilitate the factory to design more fashionable and popular styles

new flexible technological means such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and virtual reality are also transforming the development of manufacturing industry. For example, Google autopilot, baidu autopilot and speech recognition, deepmind deep learning, as well as Tesla autopilot and iFLYTEK speech recognition, which have strong strength, have driven the development and reform of the manufacturing industry on the basis of big data

it is difficult to achieve complete smoothness

"flexible China" is the hope of manufacturing upgrading in China

from the issuance of the "made in China 2025" plan last year to ensuring that the viscosity is not warped; Now the pilot of "intelligent manufacturing" in China is gradually launched. Under the development main line of the deep integration of the new generation of information technology and manufacturing industry, flexible production plays a positive role in promoting the innovation and development of Chinese manufacturing, improving quality and efficiency, and plays a decisive role. The innovation and upgrading of flexible technology is bound to bring new improvements to Chinese manufacturing industry, Create a brand-new "flexible China" in the field of world manufacturing
