Responding to the “Three Elements” of High-Quality Development of Manufacturing Industry, Universal Robots Drives R&D Innovation with Customer Insights

The 20th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (the “Twentieth Congress”) was a complete success recently. The Congress once again emphasized that high-quality development is the primary task of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way. One of the important tasks of high-quality development is to build a modern Industrial system, promote new industrialization, and accelerate the construction of a manufacturing powerhouse and a digital China.Based on a deep understanding of customer needs during years of product development, Denmarkcollaborative robotManufacturer Universal RobotsrobotIt is clearly observed that the high-quality development of industrial manufacturing is inseparable from three major elements: technological innovation, talent base, and green path.

Adam Sobieski, President of Universal Robots Greater China, said: “China has always been a strategic location for Universal Robots, and Universal Robots firmly believes that our collaborative robots can be made in China in terms of technology, talent and low carbon. Provide all-round support for the high-quality development of the industry. So far, Universal Robots has sold more than 50,000 collaborative robots worldwide. The huge installed capacity has enabled us to accumulate a lot of first-hand user demand feedback, and can continuously iterate products based on real feedback. , so as to ensure that the needs of the high-quality development of the industry are truly met.”

Technology drives the digital intelligence upgrade of the manufacturing industry

One of the essentials of high-quality development is the continuous improvement of efficiency. In the era of digital intelligence, the improvement of production efficiency is undoubtedly inseparable from the driving of technological means such as automation. In the process of embracing automation, more and more enterprises are turning their attention to collaborative robots, which are firstly due to their safe, flexible and convenient technical features.

with traditionalIndustrial robotDifferently, collaborative robots can interact directly with employees in close proximity, matching existing work cells and workstations, without the need for additional safety barriers. The collaborative robot is also very easy to install and operate, and it can be flexibly and quickly redeployed and task switched in multiple production line processes, and even operators without programming experience can use an intuitive and convenient interface with little training. Quick setup and operation. This means that enterprises do not need to change the existing plant layout, nor do they need to hire programming talents for this purpose, but they can respond more swiftly to the diverse and changing needs of the market while improving operational safety.

The above advanced technical features are the ultimate manifestation of the product research and development capabilities of collaborative robot companies, and their importance is self-evident. Therefore, collaborative robot companies must continue to innovate and iterate based on real feedback from customers in order to build solid barriers to competition and continuously inject new kinetic energy into the development of the industry.

Universal Robots’ new product UR20, which was launched earlier this year, is the latest example of its full response to user feedback. Universal Robots launched the UR20 because it clearly observed the urgent needs of customers around the world: customers want a robot with a 20kg payload, but at the same time do not want to sacrifice other performance due to the increased payload.Based on this observation, Universal Robotsrobotic armCompletely refactored, this is the largest redesign of the joint that Universal Robots has undertaken. In the end, the UR20 collaborative robot achieved innovative breakthroughs in terms of load capacity and operating range. While achieving a large load of 20KG and a working radius of 1750 mm, the repeat positioning accuracy was as high as ±0.05 mm, redefining the collaborative robot.

Empowering high-quality talents to update their skills

Obviously, high-quality talents are an important foundation for high-quality development. General Secretary Xi Jinping has emphasized many times in recent years that it is necessary to speed up the training of a large number of high-quality laborers and technical and skilled personnel. The “Twenty National Congress” also pointed out that it is necessary to strengthen the support of talents for modernization, insist on respecting labor, knowledge, talents, and creativity, and speed up the construction of the world’s important talent centers and innovation highlands.

Behind the government’s emphasis on the training of manufacturing talents is the difficulty in recruiting and employing workers faced by the global manufacturing industry.Taking welding as an example, in July 2022, the Ministry of Human Re
