Robot Industry, the Biggest Beneficiary of the 4th Industrial Revolution industrial robot parts produced in China and education services in China and Japan are emerging as the most promising in each industry. In order for Korean robot companies to expand into the global market, it is necessary to seek strategies to enter diverse markets such as joint technological development and investment with local companies by targeting core technologies and markets of promising fields.
In regard to the robot industry, which is emerging as the convergence of traditional manufacturing technologies and information and communications technology (ICT) for the future and the biggest beneficiary of the 4th Industrial Revolution, the global market conditions and prospects was presented along with analysis of the latest technological trend, while local companies were offered a substantive roadmap to expand into foreign markets.
According to the report, Global Robot Industry Market Trends and Strategies to Make Inroads, recently published it is essential to secure technological competitiveness in smart factories, machine learning, cooperative robots, artificial intelligence, etc. for invigoration of expansion into Asian global markets based on robust domestic demand with the number of sales.
Demand for industrial robots is on the rise due to the global companies’ efforts to modernize and automatize production facilities, improve energy efficiency, utilize new materials, and improve product quality. According to the International Federation of Robotics (IFR), a 15 percent annual growth rate is expected by 2020.
China is currently the world’s largest market with 30% market share, but its robot density is significantly lower than that of advanced countries, which leaves its potential still high. The robot sales in China are expected to increase by 140% by 2020. In particular, Korean companies have high potential to export to China in terms of core components such as controllers and speed reducers, which are difficult to produce in China. As of 2016, exports of robot parts to China amounted to KRW 36 billion, up 74% from the previous year.
Even in the advanced markets such as the USA and France, where there are no companies within the global top 10, Korean products have a good reputation for their cost-effectiveness and installation technology. Eastern Europe, India, Thailand, and Brazil are also emerging as new sources of demand despite relatively small market sizes at present, anticipating an annual growth of more than 20% by 2020. However, there is only a limited potential for entering into Japan and Germany where robotic technology for manufacturing is the most advanced.
Although it is not easy for Korean companies to narrow the technological gaps against leading global companies in the conventional robot industry, it is necessary to secure technologies related to smart factories and cooperative robots that are currently in the limelight.
Siemens and Adidas have completed the construction of a smart factory equipped with full-blown automation and intelligentization throughout the entire manufacturing processes based on ICT, and are accelerating technological development in the USA, China, and Japan. As machine learning is an essential technology for materializing efficient smart factories, Yaskawa Electric Corporation, a Japanese manufacturer of servos, motion controllers, AC motor drives, switches and industrial robots, has introduced a machine learning software that is capable of mastering a selected craftsmanship within two hours. As for cooperative robots for which the market growth is in full swing from US$100 million in 2015 to US$1 billion in 2020, it is necessary to preempt core technologies such as lightweighting and robot mobile technologies.
It is also expected that the robots market for global services will grow significantly. IFR expects service robots for special purposes and personal services such as housekeeping to grow by 20-25%, 30-35%, and 20-25% each year by 2020. In particular, it anticipates an explosive increase in demand for logistics robots including AGV, an essential item for smart factories, medical robots for surgery and treatments, and promotional robots to provide customers with guides or information.
Held last January in Las Vegas, United States, CES 2018 was dominated by robots equipped with AI. Aibo, a robotic pet produced by Sony, and Sophia, a humanoid robot developed by Hanson Robotics, and some others demonstrated great adaptation in everyday human life through dialogues, questions and answers, and games with human participants. Also, visitors flowed in and out all day at the booths exhibiting displaying housekeeping and entertainment robots.

The most promising field for Korean companies to expand is the educational robots market where global companies have yet to enter. In particular, Korean company’s technological prowess is evaluated positively in the countries with high demand for English education such as China and Japan. It is necessary, however, to develop technologies such as facial recognition for user verification, emotion recognition, speech recognition, and big data in order to ensure product differentiation and competitiveness.
In terms of strategies to make inroads into global markets, it is desirable to reduce the risks involved with overseas expansion by cooperating with local venture capital, accelerators, and start-ups. Meanwhile, American venture capitals’ investments in the U.S. robotics industry are increasing rapidly, while Japan is actively supporting alliances with overseas start-ups and accelerators for the advancement of service robots at the government level. In the case of Chinese companies, the demand for technological cooperation to develop sensors and artificial intelligence is high, thereby making it easy to promote joint research and development programs.
“The robots industry, which is experiencing a rapid increase in global demand, will become a representative food business in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution,” said Yoon Won-seok, an executive of the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA). “Korean companies need to seek global cooperation such as joint R&D with robot technology leaders and exchange of technology and investment. We will be able to enhance our competitiveness in the global robots market by seizing initiative of future-oriented core technologies such as cooperative robots and AI technologies based on our strengths in IT and manufacturing technology.” | Blog Magazine of korean-machinery, brands and Goods

Industrial Motors[INQ. NO. 1803M10] In the field of factory automation systems that have significant line-operating losses and risks, motor quality and reliability are the most essential requirements. Therefore, a good motor is supposed to have fine electrical characteristics such as torque, power, and efficiency, and should have smooth rotation as well as durability. In particular, motors that are carefully applied to the main types of factory automation such as robots, are required to be compactness, high-efficiency precision, and high responsiveness with high energy-density.
Based on elevator motor technology of all the industrial motors, Higen Motor Co., Ltd. ensures a high reliability in product quality and functions. In recent years, Higen Motors has been producing high-performance products by acquiring elevator motor technology with inverters commercialized recently.

Meanwhile, the servo systems have built-in components including high-output and high-torque motor, a drive that control them effectively, and a high-resolution encoder that is essential for high-precision control.
Higen Motors manufactures motors and designs structures using low-loss materials to achieve high output with high efficiency and low electricity. In addition, the manufacturing process is managed in order to achieve low vibration, low noise, and high insulation performance and is also aimed to obtain high-durability through improved processing precision.

In general, aluminum die-casting technology of rotors is very important for induction motors, and the motors produced by Higen Motors are manufactured by using a special casting machine for motors. The servo motor and servo drive undergo a lot inspection by using the specially designed inspection equipment to avoid any fault under various environmental conditions, while a high reliability is ensured through aging.
Higen Motors is a company that develops and produces controllers, servo drives, and servo motors that are the main components of robots. Although the company already supplies products to Korean robot producers, the demand is very low in reality. Like the servo market, the robot market in Korea has ended up in the arena of the struggle among the global players. Under such circumstances, Higen Motors has advanced into the robot business based on its accumulated technology and product power and set a new goal of improving competitiveness through vertical integration of products. The ultimate goal of Higen Motors is to become an industry’s giant to compete against Siemens and Mitsubishi in global markets as well as domestically through the diversification of collaborative robots, starting with Delta robots and 6-axis articulated robots.
Higen Motors has successfully completed “Development of GMC based on Standardized Korea Open Source Motion System for Automated Manufacturing (KOSMOS)” a project to develop an open source based motion control system supporting the PLCopen standard, through organic cooperation with related organizations. In addition, the company is currently engaged in research on extended control for general motion control and a variety of robot kinematics. Through such a series of technological development activities, Higen Motors plans to advance to the core technology of automation and robot control composed of high-performance servo motor, sensor, servo drive, and motion control system. Higen Motors has been an eyewitness to the 54-year history of motor development and localization. Now, in the era of the 4th industrial revolution, Higen Motors plans to devote itself to developing IT control technologies with intelligent motor and control technology as a core competency for future growth. | Blog Magazine of korean-machinery, brands and Goods

The Seoul International Manufacturing Technology Show 2018 (SIMTOS 2018) has become even more special thanks to the operation of more special pavilions by various countries.

SIMTOS has presented new forms of industry exhibitions to visitors and exhibitors every year. This fact was enough to entice many visitors and exhibitors, which inspire other industry exhibitions. SIMTOS 2018 to be held this time resolutely veered away from a practice where industry exhibitions are held by items and enhanced the convenience of visitors and exhibitors by arranging exhibition spaces by continents.
“There are three reasons why this year the organizers decided to run SIMTOS as special halls by continents,” commented an official of SIMTOS. “The three reasons are the arrival of the fourth industrial revolution, the characteristics of exhibition items, and the safety and capacities to supply affiliated facilities of the Second Exhibition Hall at KINTEX.”
According to the official, the characteristics of the fourth industrial revolution are the convergence of industries, products, and technologies, and a collaborative system. Therefore, it is necessary to move its focus to complex solutions that are characterized by the convergence, intellectualizing and collaboration of processes from products. Therefore, the SIMTOS organizers have pursued such changes to show the convergence of solutions by continents in existing exhibitions of certain items.
This year’s SIMTOS will offer an opportunity for visitors and exhibitors to understand how manufacturing powerhouses in the world are preparing for the Fourth Industrial Revolution via the Special Fourth Industrial Revolution Pavilion, which will enable visitors to grasp the flow of the global Fourth Industrial Revolution at a glance.
The SIMTOS organizers launched the Special Smart Factory Pavilion in the exhibition in 2016, which was introduced at the previous exhibition as a special project planned as a pilot project. As the Special Smart Factory Pavilion was attempted for the first time it was not quite perfect, but there were many people who praised the new attempt,” explained an official of the SIMTOS Organizing Committee. “The Special Fourth Industrial Revolution Pavilion at the Second Exhibition Hall will consist of eight sectors such as cooperative robots, engineering software, networks, IoT, and complex solutions, which are important components of the fourth industrial revolution under the theme of smart factories, digital and connection by expanding the scope of Smart Factory. More than 40 companies and consortiums have already completed their applications.”


Making SIMTOS 2018 Win Hearts of Visitors

SIMTOS has been using the MM4U (Match-Making for You) System to match exhibitors and companies before the start of the exhibition. From the previous exhibition, SIMTOS organizers made the system more convenient by putting the system online.
“MM4U, which was offered online during SIMTOS 2016, lacked the management of effective support for business meetings as exhibitors increased 168% and buyers more than doubled from the previous exhibition,” said an official of SIMTOS. He added, “We will improve the MM4U matching system by way of voluntary decision-making between exhibitors and buyers and implement services to enhance satisfaction through the operation of paid premium services in addition to general services.”
The Premium service provide services differentiated from general services in terms of inviting buyers, the number of matching applications that can be allowed and alarm functions. In addition, in order to invite big overseas buyers, the SIMTOS organizers dispatched market survey teams to five major emerging markets (South Africa, Iran, the UAE, India and Vietnam) in 2017, visited local companies and related organizations and held import and export fairs there.
The Korea Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (KOMMA) identified 50 dealers and buyers and conducted 200 preconsultations for them and will invite them to SIMTOS this year. “Our association has 20 agents who attract buyers composed of demand industries and dealer organizations in 10 countries including Turkey, Thailand and Brazil,” commented a representative of SIMTOS.


SIMTOS 2018 Expects More Than 100,000 Visitors

“I think that SIMTOS is a good venue, and it is an exhibition that strives to be the best,” said an official of the SIMTOS. “The association also supports other exhibitions and productions. However, in order to understand industrial trends in manufacturing and manufacturing technology and build networks, it is necessary to visit SIMTOS.”
The first goal is to get visitors to agree on this idea and the second is to strengthen and expand direct invitations to those in demand industries such as the automobile, machinery, electronics, electricity, IT, semiconductor, display, metal, steel, renewable energy, space and aviation, and medical industries.


Demand for Machine Tools Increases in Various Industries

“The slogan of SIMTOS 2018 exhibition is Capture the Future: the 4th manufacturing and manufacturing technologies connected with the 4th industrial revolution at SIMTOS 2018. Now is an era when industrial boundaries are falling down. We expect a rise in the participation of various industries that want to connect the fourth industrial revolution with their production and manufacturing technology,” the official explained.
“SIMTOS is already the largest production and manufacturing technology exhibition in Korea,” the official remarked. “It is difficult to mention a certain number, but the goal of the SIMTOS is always to be the most satisfying production and manufacturing technology exhibition.” | Blog Magazine of korean-machinery, brands and Goods
