The high-level automation and intelligent equipment have made the textile industry a member of the high-tech industry, and provided a more effective solution for the industry to further attract talents and solve bottleneck problems such as difficulty in recruitment. It is undeniable that intelligence has become a trend and an irreversible trend.
Intelligent manufacturing is the general trend
With the continuous increase of labor costs, textile enterprises have more and more urgent requirements for the automation and intelligence level of equipment. In this context, intelligent manufacturing is becoming the breakthrough and focus of a new round of transformation and upgrading of the industry.
The automatic threading and warping equipment, which has attracted much attention, not only realizes the automatic warping of skein-free yarns by applying a large number of non-contact optical detection technology, but also meets the requirements of complex technologies such as colored yarn management and threading and warping. The man-machine interface and management software have been improved, providing a good equipment foundation for the modern production and management of the weaving workshop.
Intelligence is changing traditional production
In fact, intelligent technology is transforming the traditional textile industry, and some companies have begun to try to intelligentize some manufacturing links.
Although some enterprises have not replaced or newly installed complete sets of equipment with a high degree of automation on a large scale, they have also significantly improved product quality and production efficiency through equipment upgrades in key links.
The Advancement and Thinking of Intelligent Manufacturing
To a certain extent, the intelligentization of equipment solves the problem of insufficient labor and improves the competitiveness of China's textile industry. However, in the process of developing intelligence, there are indeed some problems, which are worthy of consideration and discussion by the industry.On the one hand, many entrepreneurs believe that the current simple machine substitution in the textile industry is not intelligent manufacturing. The real intelligent manufacturing is to replace human brain decision-making with accurate calculation and judgment of big data, and investment such as machine substitution is very important for textiles. Whether the business is worthwhile is debatable. A series of costs such as machine investment, maintenance, and upgrades are not low. Whether textile enterprises can absorb such expensive investment is also a problem that cannot be ignored.
On the other hand, as a labor-intensive industry, on the one hand, intelligence can stimulate local investment and promote industrial upgrading, on the other hand, it means that a large number of workers may lose their jobs. How to resolve the contradiction between the two deserves further discussion.
For intelligentization, the current guidance direction at the government level includes the following four points: establishing demonstration areas; improving intelligent manufacturing standards; promoting intelligent manufacturing supplier alliances; developing the Internet, big data and artificial intelligence.
