"Chinese will become the world's largest robot market", Switzerland ABB group discrete automation and motion control business department of Asia and Chinese responsible person Gu Chunyuan told reporters in expo. ABB group of the display of the industrial robot is the smallest of the history of "speed player" -- IRB120 robot, the skilled, quick mouse assembly demonstrates impressive, broke the masses are huge monster, only engaged in power labor Chen see for robot.
As a global power and automation technology giant, from 2005 onwards, production, R & D, engineering center of ABB robot are beginning to Chinese transfer. At present, Chinese ABB has become the first big market in the global. In 2011, ABB Group sales in China of $51100000000, an increase of 21%. Production enterprises Yaskawa robot the world's largest also keep up with the pace of ABB, in March this year was officially settled in China, will carry on the industrial robot equipment and accessories, parts of the development, design, production.
Foreign giants have production base construction in China is in the background: so far, a total number of 46000 sets of industrial robot China, imported brands more than half. The exhibition, in addition to ABB, Yaskawa, FANUC, KUKA Germany, Gao Tao Bill, Nachi fujikoshi, Epson, Stuttgart, car beauty, Hirata mechanic and other well-known foreign enterprises without an absent. "But these giants did not bring any surprise, technology innovation" alliance China technology initiator Wang Jian told reporters, "this is just a to sales fairs".
According to the International Federation of robotics data shows, 2011, the quantity of each ten thousand industrial workers Chinese with robot is 21, while the international average level is 55, which America is 135, 251 in Germany, 339 in Japan, South Korea is the 347. Perhaps it is such a big gap let these giants, more intelligent, more safety, more innovative robot is not Chinese need most, in the moment, who can provide efficient production, high cost performance products have been enough to fill Chinese hungry stomach.
