China Glass Coated Glass: Industrial Intelligence Speeds Up Enterprise Development


Batching, melting, forming, annealing, cutting, boxing ......5 On 7th, walking into the production workshop of Weihai Zhongglass Coated Glass Co.


Complex processes, cumbersome production processes, as far as the eye can see, there are few workers on the production line, and the production process of glass is basically automated.

The automatic production line in front of us is an intelligent production line which was upgraded with an investment of 100 million yuan last year, and is now mainly used for the production of energy-saving coated glass, solar power generation TCO and online ultra-low radiation glass for cold chain processing. (Weihai Zhongglass) General Manager Ye Zhihui introduced, "At present, these glasses have basically been put into production in batch, and in the first quarter of this year, the company's output of various types of glass increased by 44% year-on-year, and the profit increased by 20%-30% compared with the previous one."

The intelligent production line extends new development ideas. 2020, it will focus on developing new products with high technological content and high added value, and strive to build a domestic first-class and international leading functional glass production base to ensure that the total output value grows to 1.2 billion yuan, up 22% year-on-year.

Set a goal is not difficult, but the face of this year's new intentions, how to rush? The enterprise gave this answer: to industry intelligence as the leader, accelerate the transformation and upgrading. On the basis of the main body of the existing production line, the use of online Sun-E○T with independent intellectual property rights and other three coated glass technology, the cold end of the annealing kiln and coating equipment transformation, while maintaining an annual capacity of 3.3 million heavy boxes of flat glass, conversion of new annual production capacity of 1.1 million heavy boxes of coated glass, to promote the transformation of the company from ordinary flat glass to high value-added functional glass industry.

Industrial intelligence involves all aspects, in addition to speeding up the transformation of the main line, the company also accelerated to the digital factory, plans from raw material batching and weighing to product grasping, stacking, defect detection, all to achieve intelligent mechanized operation, "so that the number of workers reduced by 32%, but the workshop production efficiency has increased by more than double."

The domestic market, but also to conquer the global. Right now, the company has taken the first step and started to coordinate the promotion of offline and online global industrial layout, at present, has received significant results. In the first quarter, a total of 10.58 million U.S. dollars in exports, an increase of 30%. (Hi Weihai client reporter Yang Cai Ming Li Sen Zhang Yu / text Yang Yan / Figure)
