“Industry 4.0″ will produce more “unmanned factory”

2015 Summer Davos Forum held in Dalian International Conference Center. The three-day annual conference, scheduled a meeting of 150 sessions. The Summer Davos forum, a focus of the problems caused heated debate, “unmanned factory” actually cracked labor shortage, or bring work hard?

According to reports, “unmanned factory” born “Industry 4.0” concept presented at the 2013 Hanover Fair, ie physical integration with information systems as the basis for the production of a high degree of digitization and networking as the symbol of the industrial model. With the rapid development of China’s robotics industry, a number of “unmanned factory” has been in a number of China’s economically developed areas appear, no doubt, will promote industrial restructuring and upgrading, to inject new vitality into the development.
“For enterprises, especially labor-intensive enterprises, the shortage of labor and rising labor costs generated by the superposition effect, become the bottleneck troubled enterprise development, and the ‘machine Substitution’ ‘unmanned factory’ appearance, not only ease the shortage of skilled workers dilemma, labor costs rose too fast response, but also improve the accuracy and efficiency of work. “Inspiration Innovation Research Institute of Tsinghua University Chen Hongbo said.
“Even if there is no labor cost constraints, the machine will become a trend to gradually replace people.” Mr Chen also believe that after the “machine Substitution”, not only solved the problem of production safety, at the same time, higher robot stability, product quality and more secure, pass rate will greatly enhance and create greater capacity.
University of California, Berkeley professor Stuart ˙ Roseau and several other experts in the field of intelligent robot that “unmanned factory” of large-scale emergence will to some extent, an impact on the employment situation, which is a test of the government’s employment security capability .
Data show that in 2014, Chinese industrial robot sales 56,000 units, ranking first in the world for two consecutive years.
