In the sheet metal processing industry, the degree or level of intelligence should be mainly reflected in the following aspects: intelligent manufacturing equipment is a view, the analysis ability, reasoning, decision-making and control ability of common manufacturing equipment, advanced manufacturing technology, information technology, computer Products that integrate technology and smart technologies in equipment products. Intelligent manufacturing equipment reflects the network development needs of intelligence, digitization and manufacturing, and is an important indicator to measure the level of national industrialization.
Compared with the development of traditional sheet metal processing information technology, modern sheet metal processing enterprise technology has made a qualitative leap in manufacturing process equipment. Modern Sheet metal processing technology is mainly based on CNC sheet metal processing production equipment, and is equipped with complete tools, molds, fixtures and auxiliary teaching equipment to form a solid modern national high-tech science and technology economic foundation. In recent years, the new CNC punch presses, Automatic sheet metal processing service centers, etc., undoubtedly provide a stronger proof for the intelligent management of manufacturing equipment.
1. Intelligent manufacturing equipment. Intelligent manufacturing equipment is a general term for manufacturing equipment with functions of perception, analysis, reasoning, decision-making and control. It is the integration and fusion of advanced manufacturing technology, information technology, computer technology and intelligent technology in equipment products, reflecting the intelligence of the manufacturing industry. , digitization and networking development requirements. The level of intelligent manufacturing equipment has become an important symbol for measuring the level of industrialization of a country today.
2. Intelligent flexible production line. The establishment of flexible production lines on the basis of intelligent technology is the development trend of sheet metal processing and production. At present, due to the small scale of some sheet metal processing enterprises, the products are mostly multi-variety and small batches, and the demand for flexible production lines is not urgent. With the advancement and maturity of technology, intelligent flexible production lines will usher in a period of rapid development.
3. Robots. Robots are mechanical devices that perform work automatically. It can accept human command, run pre-written programs, or act according to principles and programs formulated with artificial intelligence technology. Its task is to assist or replace human work.
In the sheet metal processing industry, there are already robots for welding, grinding and other processes with poor working conditions, as well as robots for blanking, bending and forming processes. Generally speaking, it is still in the experimental and initial stage, and has not yet reached the level of popularization and application. Among them, there are examples of successful applications, and there are products on the market. Robots have received widespread attention in the industry. Some enterprises conduct research on robots from design, technology to production and processing, find problems, analyze them, and propose solutions.
4. Information management. The automation and intelligent development trend of Sheet metal processing technology will inevitably promote the management reform of sheet metal processing enterprises. It is imperative to establish an information management system. In the information management system, such as logistics management system, production management system, process technology system, quality management system, automatic quotation system, cost management system, safety assurance system, etc., all operate according to pre-planned requirements and are effectively controlled.
At present, ERP, PAL and other information management systems have been introduced in large-scale sheet metal processing enterprises. But what confuses enterprises is that these information management systems have strong functions, but the amount of effective information entering the system is very small, so that the information management system is far from being fully and effectively applied; It is said that the foreign drawings are "various", are not unified, nor standardized, do not implement relevant standards, and are "simplified" at will, so that useful information is also missing, making the information management system unable to be used correctly or even unusable. For this reason, the call for standardization and standardization of drawings is getting louder and louder.
