“My dad is also a robot!”

In the feeding area, the logistics forklift steadily holds up a tray of materials;

In the assembly area, the yellow robotic arm aims at the machine to complete the “docking”;

In the inspection area, robots are waving up and down in the “grid” for “self-testing”.

When General Secretary Xi Jinping participated in the deliberations of the Jiangsu delegation at the second session of the 14th National People’s Congress, he gave Jiangsu a major requirement of “developing new quality productive forces according to local conditions”. How to cultivate and expand new quality productivity and accelerate the development of a strong manufacturing province? Each workshop is a window to observe change.

Nanjing Estun Automation Co., Ltd

Intelligent production workshop

Witness the intelligent scene of “robots” producing “robots”.

Estun is an old enterprise rooted in Jiangning Development Zone, starting from the production of servo motors, to the transformation of automation core components and industrial robot R&D and manufacturing, after years of development, has grown into a “leader” in the domestic industrial robot industry.

“The production lines of the intelligent production workshop have all been full, and people are mainly doing some logistics and assembly work here, and the test does not need to be on site, and the machine will monitor itself.” Zhao Xiaodong, head of Estun Strategy and MKT, introduced that this is the first intelligent production line of “robots” to produce “robots” in China, which can produce 76 robots independently developed by the company, with a yield rate of 99.1%. “There are four intelligent production bases like this, with a robot production capacity of 50,000 sets per year, ranking first in China.”

After the completion of the running test, these robots will be rolled off the assembly line from Estun and sent to smart factories in industries such as automotive equipment, lithium batteries and photovoltaics across the country, changing their roles from products to “smart workers”.

As an enterprise deeply engaged in the field of industrial automation, Nanjing Estun has been making continuous efforts in intelligent manufacturing since its establishment 30 years ago. At present, Estun has 76 robots with a load of 3-700kg, and has become the first brand in China to focus on robot intelligent manufacturing, with business covering China, Europe, Southeast Asia, the Americas and other regions.

“We have three core technologies of fully autonomous robot controller, operating system and servo system, and the autonomy rate of the core components of the robot has reached 80%, which can not only provide robots for intelligent production lines, but also have the ability to provide comprehensive solutions to meet the non-standardized and unstructured needs of customers.” Zhao Xiaodong said.

According to statistics, in 2023, 90% of the world’s photovoltaic cell factories will use Estun robots. In the world’s leading power battery factory, Estun Industrial Robot provides various refined processes such as battery assembly and PACK for more than 1 million new energy vehicles.

How can a company occupy half of the industrial robot market? A focus on R&D is a key factor.

“We invest 10% of our annual sales in R&D and have built nearly 10 R&D centers around the world. At present, the autonomy rate of the core components of Estun’s full range of industrial robot products has exceeded 80%. ”

The emphasis on R&D has paid off. In the exhibition hall on the first floor of the company, there are a number of “unique” and “champion” created by Estun: the only high-protection die-casting robot in China, the world’s original intelligent bending robot, and the world’s only high-speed robot …… for the photovoltaic industry

Zhao Xiaodong introduced that in March this year, the “photovoltaic typesetting industrial robot” independently developed by Estun was selected into the list of the eighth batch of manufacturing individual champion enterprises of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, which became another honor for the company after winning the title of “little giant” of national specialization, refinement, and innovation.

Under the general trend of “intelligent transformation, digital transformation and network connection”, building a digital production line has become a common demand of manufacturing enterprises. In response to the digital needs of our customers, Estun is also constantly seeking to cultivate a “fertile soil” for new quality productivity. At present, Estun’s self-developed digital twin platform has unified the management of 4 factories in Nanjing, built its own digital twin solution capabilities, and helped automobile, power battery, photovoltaic and other enterprises to implement digital production lines.

“We hope that through our technology and solutions, we can help other enterprises improve production efficiency and enhance their flexible production capacity, so as to empower new quality productivity.” Zhao Xiaodong introduced that at present, Estun is fully embracing digitalization and artificial intelligence to create a complete solution of “robot +” intelligent manufacturing. “I hope that through the technical force, the threshold for the use of robots can be lowered, such as the digital management of the entire line through the ‘robot + digital simulation platform’, and the use of ‘robot + AI’ to allow the robot to plan the path according to the voice and complete complex work autonomously.”
