Satisfy Individualization + Standardization and Customize Home to Be Smart

Industry insiders believe that intelligent chemical plants will be the future development trend. So, how is such a factory designed? What are the new design elements of custom furniture industry in recent years?

In recent years, the emergence of intelligent factories, robotic restaurants and self-service convenience stores has constantly refreshed people’s views on artificial intelligence. The development of artificial intelligence has brought many changes to life. The automation pipeline used in intelligent manufacturing has changed the current working mode and changed the former discontinuous and scattered work into continuous pipeline. Industry insiders believe that intelligent chemical plants will be the future development trend. So, how is such a factory designed? What are the new design elements of custom furniture industry in recent years?

Customized Furniture Industry

Need to meet the double requirements of individualization and standardization

Industry 4.0 is becoming a hot topic in manufacturing industry. It can be seen that many industries, such as automobile, logistics, food and so on, have emerged highly intelligent “smart factory”, and factory intelligence has become a trend of development. Even in the customized furniture industry of non-standardized production, the terms of automation, industry 4.0, smart factory, big data, cloud computing have become the labels of large-scale whole-house customization enterprises. More industries and enterprises are carrying out intelligent transformation of factories.

The customized furniture industry is not completely standardized because of the individualized demand, so the design of intelligent factory is generally not a “black light factory” in the full sense. Starting from the raw material warehouse of the intelligent warehouse, each piece of board experiences opening, sealing, punching, sorting, packing… It successfully connects the manufacturing island of the traditional workshop into an intelligent production line, greatly shortens the production cycle of each batch of sheet metal, speeds up the logistics transfer, reduces the waiting time between processes, and makes the machine more and more intelligent through flexible, intelligent and efficient systems. It’s like a group of scattered soldiers, but now it’s an army with a general’s tie. They can cooperate with each other intelligently and efficiently. For example, smart plate sorting system and packing and palletizing system, whose hardware adopts the most popular six-axis industrial robot, and whose software is a self-developed line control system, can continuously and in large quantities intelligent plate sorting according to orders, and intelligent palletizing according to packaging requirements, with an accuracy of nearly 100%. Through information interconnection, the whole factory can realize automatic connection. All equipments can communicate with each other, the materials between them can be connected automatically, all waste products and defective products can be removed automatically, and then all products can be stored automatically to complete the whole production process.

Let processes communicate as people do

What is the biggest difference between the design of new intelligent plant and that of traditional plant? Traditional factory buildings pay more attention to hardware equipment, that is, hard link, how to layout between equipment and equipment, how to go about logistics. But the intelligent factory building should consider the information flow, how to connect different sections or processes through software system, to realize data communication, or between processes and processes like people can communicate. The design of intelligent plant needs to set goals at the beginning, such as high automation, high efficiency and high productivity factory. With this goal, the latter design can be decided.

Most of the design of traditional factory buildings do not carry out a lot of data analysis in planning. Many of them are based on industry experience, building the factory first, building several buildings and then what equipment they want to buy. Intelligent factory design, it begins with top-level design, it must specify which equipment to use, what auxiliary equipment there are, and how to connect in series through information technology. Including, how many people need to be allocated for each section, and what are the responsibilities of these people? A person is responsible for several places. How can he get from one end to the other quickly? What aisles and bridges are needed in the middle. After these designs are completed, some space is added. The layout is clear, and then the factory building is built.

In the planning and design stage, we need to do a lot of data analysis. First, we need to decide which products to produce and how much to produce. What kind of equipment will be needed to produce these products and how will they be laid out? After the layout design is completed, each plate needs to be refined by different technical branches. Like mechanical design, some equipment, such as monitoring equipment, may be purchased, some are to be designed by themselves or to find some manufacturers to jointly develop, for different equipment to do mechanical structure design, specify its technical parameters, technical requirements, which is the responsibility of the mechanical design team. The so-called automation, not only mechanical equipment, but also a variety of control, such as electric, pneumatic. The electrical team is responsible for how to control the circuit and air circuit and how to program.

Intelligence differs from traditional automation in information technology. What we need to consider is the transmission of the whole data, that is, how to send accurate data to each process and section. How do processes communicate with each other and how do these data feed back into the production system after production is completed? This requires detailed software design.

Customized Furniture Orders Reduce Errors

The development trend of intelligent chemical plants is to liberate people from repetitive mechanical labor. From the perspective of home customization industry, customization is a kind of individualized demand. In order to maximize the benefits, factories need batch production. It is impossible to produce once because of an order. It is certain that the needs of customers in each region will be put together for production and batch production. At the beginning of sheet material opening, edge sealing, drilling and other processes, we need to assemble orders, mix them together for production. After processing, we can distinguish the orders of different customers. An order may have dozens of boards. If people do this work, the workload will be heavy and error-prone. Therefore, the design of this link is to use industrial robots for sorting. This sorting reflects how software and equipment work together. This is not simply a single robot here, its core is software, is the code, through a set of algorithms developed by the factory itself, according to the information of each order for packaging. Many orders can not be fulfilled in one package. They may be packaged in many different packages. There is also a packing rule. According to these rules, the robot completes the sorting work. If it is not complete for the time being, it will first put the board on the side of the buffer rack, until the software judges a complete package, it will take it down and transport it to the later packing process.

To the packing stage, sorting has been calculated according to the packing rules, and the boards that are transported to the packing stage will be coded together. According to the size information in a package, the system will automatically transfer to the paper cutter and cut out a suitable size carton. Before packing, it is a paper cut according to the size, and all boards in the same order will be passed through. The robot moved onto the carton.

How will the large-scale use of robots change the whole production mode? Now these production line workers are slowly transforming to mental workers. What they need to do is to monitor the operation of equipment, deal with some incidental faults, and observe the need for improvement in the process. Over a period of time, gather the ideas for these improvements and work with engineers to formulate the next improvement plan. This change in role has changed the role of people. At the same time, the use of machines and intelligent algorithms reduces the probability of human errors and improves the quality of service. Because customized furniture is not like mass production, there is an order error, which may lead to the delay of the entire decoration period, improve the accuracy of the order configuration, to a certain extent, can improve customer satisfaction.

Design needs to be forward-looking

Intelligent Development of Furniture Manufacturing Industry Accelerated

Compared with the production efficiency of the traditional factory building, the intelligent factory building is obviously higher. If there is a change in the demand and supply of the market, how to adjust it? Is it considered in the design process? Zhuanghongjin said that in the design, the design scheme is usually determined according to the highest capacity demand. To achieve such a goal, we must consider how efficient each link should be, how different processes should be connected, and how much capacity can be reached in an hour is determined at the beginning of the design by calculating that the transfer, transportation and connection will not become the bottleneck. Come down. If the market changes, some of the production capacity is idle, by reducing energy consumption, such as the original two shifts now one shift for production to adjust.

For the rapid development of intelligent technology, plant design can not keep up with the pace of technological renewal worries, unlike the Internet, e-commerce and other industries, technology renewal time is very fast, manufacturing industry in the technical level and equipment level is relatively stable, foothold is different. At the time of design, it is basically based on the goal of the future factory. And the development level of different industries is also different. In the automotive industry, industrial robots have been widely used, while in the panel furniture industry, users are not many.

Customization Industry Design Trend Towards Light Luxury

Young consumers are paying more and more attention to green environment protection

With the increase of income, the concept of consumer life is constantly changing. Young consumers pay more and more attention to environmental protection, delicacy, quality and so on. More and more people pursue a low-key and introverted quality lifestyle. Behind the light luxury also represents the rise of aesthetic taste of the post-80s and even the post-90s new generation. They pay more attention to details, experience, quality, taste, creativity and personality culture. At the Milan International Furniture Fair in 2019, modern luxury style has become one of the mainstream trends of home decoration design. Following the trend, a series of luxury products have appeared in the market.

Following the trend, a series of luxury products have appeared in the market.

Modern Lightweight and Luxury Preserve Minimalist Wind Line

In the aspect of design, modern light luxury style retains the advantage and disadvantage of minimalist style. On the basis of minimalist style design, gold, metal, baking paint and other elements are added to create a sense of light luxury, reflecting the sense of design and refinement everywhere, highlighting the pursuit of quality life and being loved. Gold is used in home design, to show a proper sense of high-level, the trick is “precious not much”. The use of gold decoration can improve the monotony of the pure color cabinet and add some delicacy to the cabinet. And large-scale use of gold can also be not vulgar. Many international brands love champagne gold, which is not only full of light luxury, but also less dazzling and appropriate elegance and luxury. The unique mirror design of baking varnish board makes it one of the modern luxury materials that designers like to create. Even a single color of baking paint can construct a different depth, such as: gray-black baking paint brings home as deep and quiet as the night sky; white baking paint improves the brightness and purity of home.

Change of color from high saturation to low brightness

Color has always been an important part of home design. In recent years, young consumers are increasingly demanding personality in home design. They also pursue lively and bold collocation of colors. More choice of gray, light blue, pink lotus root color, from high saturation to low brightness, the pursuit of a comfortable natural and physical and mental integration, if you worry about gray too monotonous, you can increase a little bright color interpolation, the overall feeling is more dynamic.

In fact, light luxury fashion has become popular in the whole interior design industry. In addition to modern light luxury, new Chinese light luxury is another popular design trend. New Chinese style + light luxury is the collision of classical style and modern elements, based on tradition and innovation. Compared with the traditional Chinese style, which pursues the decorative effect of magnificent and carved beams and paintings, the new Chinese style is relatively simple in light and luxurious design. The simple decorative elements on the crisp lines not only break through the traditional Chinese style may be too heavy and criticized, but also enrich the freedom in material selection. From the color point of view, it is not only red and purple that can express the characteristics of the new Chinese style. The color is elegant and harmonious, and there will be no large area of saturated and bright colors in vision. On the contrary, most of the new Chinese light and luxurious designs are mainly elegant and fresh colors, such as white, grey and linen, which make the whole space look more refreshing and transparent.
