How To Move From The Control Mode To The Integrated Robot Mode
- Nov 06, 2017 -

The industrial robot body is an integration based on motion control, and the robot production line is secondarily integrated. Motion control system is mainly composed of motion controller, actuator (such as servo system) and transmission (toothed belt or reducer), etc. The basis of robotics is motion control. Motion control technology has gone from DC to AC, from open loop to closed loop, from analog to digital, to a PC based servo control network system.


Servo system benefit equipment upgrades, demand continued to grow, the downstream structural differentiation worsened. In 2012, the numerical control rate of China's metal chipmachine is 26%, which is far from the level of 60% -70% in developed countries. The equipment upgrade space is vast. In 2014, the total size of the servo system will reach 6.1 billion, and the future growth rate will reach 5% -10 %. However, the downstream demand growth will be structural differentiation, robotics, electronics manufacturing and other emerging industries on the servo demand growth will reach 15% -20%, much higher than the traditional machinery.


Servo industry concentration is decentralized, import substitution is underway. Japanese brand market share of nearly 50%, mainly in the mid-market; Europe and the United States accounted for 24% of the brand, providing a total solution to occupy the high-end market; Taiwanese brand positioning among Japanese and local brands, accounting for 10%; local brand positioning low End market, market share increased from 10% in 2007 to 18%. However, the market share between individual brands is closer and the competition in the industry is fiercer.


Motion controller customized benefit equipment in-depth development, market segments oligopoly. Motion controllers are mainly divided into PC-based, PLC-based, embedded controllers and CNCs (numerical control systems). Other types of motion controllers other than CNCs can be referred to as universal controllers (GMCs). The market size of CNC machines in 2013 3.6 billion, GMC16 billion. A long time Know-how accumulation, user habits and other high barriers to entry, so even if the smaller share of the overall market, but in the market segment may account for the vast majority of market share. Such as Japan's Fanuc accounted for 50% of the world CNC, Siemens accounted for 20%.


Integrated layout of domestic industrial robot manufacturers more competitive. From the perspective of product standardization, the components of motion control system have the highest degree of standardization, followed by the industrial robot body and the lowest standardization of the robot production line. The higher degree of standardization of the products, the stronger the ability to turn around, but the performance of products and services need to obtain the approval of downstream system integrators. At present, domestic brands are still hard to get recognized by many integrators, and the "high turnover rate" mode can not be selected for the business model. Therefore, the system integration of the domestic brand value chain is indispensable. The foundation of industrial robotics is motion control, so we think brands that have the core technology in motion control are more competitive.
