Financial observation: "industry 4.0" reshapes Germany's manufacturing industry

the concept of industry 4.0 was first proposed at the Hannover Industrial Expo in Germany in 2011, and has been in Germany for six years now. German Federal Minister of education and research Johanna Vanka said at the opening ceremony of this year's Hannover Industrial Expo a few days ago that industry 4.0 in Germany is no longer a laboratory, but really into industrial production, from concept to practice

more than 500 industrial 4.0 applications were exhibited at this ICIF, far more than 100 last year and zero in 2015. Industry 4.0 in Germany is forming a pattern driven by the government, led by large enterprises and eager for small and medium-sized enterprises, which has profoundly changed the manufacturing ecology and German economic development

industry 4.0 profoundly changes the German economy

Bridget tsipris, German Minister of economy and energy, said during the current Industrial Expo that globalization, digitalization and industry 4.0 are three major trends that have a profound impact on today's economy and society

as the country that first proposed this concept, Germany has the world's largest industrial 4.0 network. Tsipris believes that the development of Germany can provide a model for other countries

according to the data of the German Association for information technology, telecommunications and new media, Germany's industrial 4.0 related output value is growing rapidly, reaching 7billion euros (1 euro is about $1.09) in 2018. Among the related industries, the machinery and equipment manufacturing industry is the leader, and the output value will increase by 23% this year, reaching 1.5 billion euros

Winfried Holtz, a member of the presidium of the association, can't help but praise that industry 4.0 is a real economic driver

while driving economic growth, the digitalization process driven by industry 4.0 also makes German manufacturing enterprises large, so the refueling speed will be very slow. According to the latest survey results of the German Federation of engineers, an industry association, 3% of the surveyed enterprises moved their production back to Germany in 2015

Ralph Apel, chairman of the German Federation of engineers, said that the application of digital technology not only allowed German enterprises to return, but also significantly improved labor productivity. The survey results show that the labor productivity of enterprises using digital technology is 27% higher than that of enterprises not using it. If all industrial enterprises use two or three digital technologies in the production process, the value of productivity improvement will reach 8billion euros

large enterprises lead the way

at this ICIF, German large enterprises such as Siemens Group, Bosch and sap, the largest software enterprise in Europe, are the wind vane of global industrial development, and they lead the development direction of industry 4.0

Siemens has demonstrated a number of industrial 4.0 applications. Ekad ebeller, CEO of Siemens process automation, said that what Siemens wants to show is that through higher flexibility, higher efficiency, higher quality and shorter market launch time, enterprises of any size can benefit from digital transformation with high precision

Bosch also showed robots making marshmallows, industrial equipment, with the help of multi-sensor and cloud interconnection, airport intelligent monitoring and other technologies, highlighting the concept of IOT

SAP announced the automation cooperation with Mitsubishi Electric (Europe) during the Industrial Expo. Many insiders shouted: when robots encounter the cloud, the era of all IOT may start

at this Industrial Expo, we have to mention the world's top grasping system and clamping technology enterprise XiongKe company. XiongKe's collaborative manipulator JL1 won the Hermes technological innovation award at this Industrial Expo. This product is the world's first manipulator product developed for human-computer collaborative applications, which can interact and communicate directly with people. During the exhibition, German Chancellor Angela Merkel specially visited the Schunk booth and shook hands with the manipulator

from the booths of these large enterprises, it is not difficult to find that personalized intelligent production, interconnected interactive robots, artificial intelligence is the key word for the development of industry 4.0 at present, and it is also the development direction of global industry in the future

who doesn't participate, who fails

the trend of industry 4.0 strikes, and all enterprises are involved in it, and there is no escape. Tsipris said that in the digital wave, whoever does not participate will fail

according to the incomplete statistics of the German industry 4.0 platform, at present, the traditional communication base stations in Germany generally adopt high-capacity lead-acid batteries with diesel generators as backup power systems, and a total of nearly 300 manufacturing enterprises are producing or using industry 4.0 applications

yanmhozk, CEO of Siemens digital factory, said that digitalization has solved many problems faced by global industrial enterprises today, such as rapid launch to market, production efficiency, flexible production, quality control and safety assurance, so it is extremely important for industrial development

however, in the face of digitalization, small and medium-sized enterprises, which account for the majority of German enterprises, are still hesitant. Jonas Gerbert, a consultant of German industry 4.0 platform, said that small and medium-sized enterprises, on the one hand, are limited by their own capabilities and have not found a digital model suitable for them, on the other hand, they are also worried about risks

in order to promote the participation of small and medium-sized enterprises in industry 4.0, the German government has set up plans such as small and medium-sized enterprises 4.0 vocational training 4.0 with a ton or more to provide various policy and technical support for small and medium-sized enterprises, and train and reserve professionals for Industry 4.0

it is understood that the Federal Ministry of education and research of Germany will fund industrial 4.0 key technology research projects and pass the scientific research results to relatively weak small and medium-sized enterprises free of charge. The government has also established technology centers around the country to provide free consultation and test industry 4.0 technology for small and medium-sized enterprises to help them improve the speed of enterprise transformation and upgrading
