Flexible manufacturing system

- Mar 19, 2019-

FMS is not a new concept. It began to enter the country when the country promoted CIMS applications in the 1990s. For example, Shanghai Textile Machinery and Zhengfang Machinery introduced FMS systems at the time, but because of control technology and information technology such as RFID at the time. The application is not very mature, and the actual operation of the FMS that some enterprises have built is not as expected. By pressing the button, everything can be done automatically. In fact, the more complex the system, the higher the failure rate, the worse the reliability of the operation, and the limited investment capacity of some companies, so it is afraid of FMS. As we will know, FMS can't leave the function of industrial computer system, or HMI display support.


However, in recent years, with the rapid advancement of control technology, information technology, and the continuous replacement of production organization and management methods, FMS systems have begun to adapt to new demands, continuously introduce new technologies, and continue to be higher as a means of production. Level development has become a very reliable, stable and efficient system, and the current FMS system can be built and expanded according to the needs of enterprises, and the construction cost has been greatly reduced compared with the past.


Today, many machine tool manufacturers in China have successfully developed a variety of flexible manufacturing systems, Shenyang Machine Tool Group, Dalian Machine Tool Group, Jinan Second Machine Tool Group Corporation, Beijing No. 1 Machine Tool Plant, Beijing Electromechanical Institute High Technology Company, Jiangsu Xinrui Machine Tool Group companies, Pushkin River Machine Tool Company, and Shenji Group Kunming Machine Tool Co., Ltd. have already possessed the technology and manufacturing strength of developing flexible manufacturing systems for metal processing. There are already many flexible manufacturing systems in automobiles and motorcycles. Successful operation in the home appliance manufacturing industry and general machinery manufacturing industry.


Among them, Sichuan Pushkin Ningjiang Machine Tool Co., Ltd., as the leading enterprise of domestic FMS, has successfully developed two precision flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) for the construction of the company's cabinet digital workshop, which has realized the mixed flow of more than 8 kinds of machine tool box parts. Processing, four process routes in parallel production; and independently developed key technologies such as FMS master control, realized integration of MES system and DNC system, and possessed a number of patents and software copyrights. Up to now, Sichuan Pushkin Ningjiang Machine Tool Co., Ltd. has applied more than 40 flexible manufacturing systems in key national industries, and initially realized the industrialization of FMS.


In China, after years of exploration and practice, the FMS flexible manufacturing system has gone through some detours despite the difficulties encountered and the challenges of other advanced manufacturing models. But when we fully realized the value of the FMS flexible manufacturing system, the company also began to try to deploy the FMS system and use it as an indispensable part of the enterprise to promote smart factory construction. In addition, many excellent FMS system suppliers have emerged in China, and their solutions and service capabilities have been upgraded to a large extent. At the same time, enterprises must be pragmatic and rational in the construction and selection of FMS systems. After all, the FMS system is ultimately for production services. Enterprises should also combine their own products and match the market demand to find the direction of construction. Do not blindly launch and seek greed.
