First of all, buy a large number of devices with the same performance, and the technicians have to test and screen them one by one.
Then, follow the technical system process step by step.
During this period, you will still encounter unexpected difficulties, and you need to rely on the professional knowledge of the technicians and the practical experience accumulated over the years to break through.
In the end, the staff finally developed a product after all the hard work, but they entered a new technology research and development stage without stopping. In the new stage, technicians have to test, apply, adjust, upgrade, and update products... just like that, technical research is always running.
Huawei is one of the best domestic companies in technology, and their technical team is basically the same, doing a lot of testing, doing a lot of technology accumulation, and then summing up a set of their own methodology.
As an industrial intelligent laser displacement sensor and industrial big data service provider that integrates R&D, production, sales and service, 【ATINY】 has experienced nearly 10 years of development and has now formed a relatively systematic R&D technology system.
Today, we will walk into the technical department of Chuangxiang to explore the story behind the laser displacement sensor.
Before talking about the technology, let's first understand the products developed by 【ATINY】
At this stage, the two products that 【ATINY】 will focus on promoting are the special laser displacement sensor for seam tracking and the laser seam tracking system.
The former is mainly used in the welding industry, which can realize automatic identification, positioning, and guidance of the welding seam, and cooperate with industrial robots and special welding machines to realize automatic welding, which effectively improves the welding quality and replaces labor.
The latter is widely used in automobiles, 3c industries and other industrial production, mainly for key parameter measurement, defect detection, positioning and other aspects.
In order to improve the applicability and integration of the product, 【ATINY】 laser displacement sensor has achieved a small size in the industry, and has continuously made breakthroughs in optical design, circuit design, and production technology. The 【ATINY】 team has completely achieved excellence, optimized the volume of the product in units of 0.1 mm, and has overcome more than 50 technical difficulties within 5 months, achieving a better combination of product volume, power consumption, and performance.
High-quality products are derived from high-quality technology. 【ATINY】 has an Industry 4.0 professional team with R&D, production, technical support, and sales functions.
Among them, there are 54 technicians. The entire technical department is subdivided into three small departments, R&D department, application department, and technical support department, and each small department has relatively dedicated services.
The R&D department focuses on the R&D innovation and engineering realization of spatial positioning technology; the application department communicates with integrators,
mainly responsible for increasing the applicability of the product, allowing the seamless connection of the product and the robot to better integrate,
and at the same time targeting the application and needs of customers, Then make improvements to the product and carry out secondary development; the technical support department, mainly for customers, provides direct door-to-door services, and does installation, commissioning and other technical services at the product application site.
In the process of providing technical services to customers, 【ATINY】 also encounter many challenges.
For example, products need to be coordinated and tested with different types of robots, and for each type of robot, the product must be improved accordingly.
In addition,【ATINY】 has to make several adjustments to its products according to the needs of special industries. As far as the welding process is concerned, a relatively typical and difficult welding method in the industry is the highly reflective argon arc welding. Argon arc welding is a welding technology that uses argon as a shielding gas. It is to pass argon shielding gas around the arc welding to isolate the air from the welding area and prevent the oxidation of the welding area.
So far, the products of Chuangxiang have been able to connect with 40+ different types of robots.
Because the ultraviolet radiation of argon arc welding is extremely strong, it is harmful to the eyes, skin, neck, etc. of the human body, so it is best to use a robot to weld, and use a laser displacement sensor for tracking detection. In the technical service of argon arc welding, Creative Intelligent Control needs to mobilize all the personnel in the technical department to make many adjustments and modifications. The process is cyclical and the problems are also very complicated.
In addition, 【ATINY】 always faces a long-standing problem in the industry, that is, how to be close to customer needs.
are mainly used in the industrial field, and customer needs in the industrial field are very complicated and difficult to tap. In the early stage of product development,
Laser displacement sensors
【ATINY】 sent staff from the two departments of technology and marketing to go to customer sites for on-site inspections and consultations, and communicate with various industrial personnel such as product purchasers, quality inspection workers, and production line workers. Collect and sort out the problems of many products and customers, and establish a problem database. This database has played an important role in the later product development. For industrial applications, 【ATINY】 can use the database to more accurately and effectively connect product development and customer needs, not only to timely understand the most real needs of customers, but also Quickly make judgments and adjustments to better improve the product.
The technical R&D personnel of 【ATINY】 said: In the application of industrial products, it is very difficult for technicians to understand the real needs of customers. You need to have a good understanding of both the technology and the market, and you can also understand customer problems. Turn into a technical problem. Specifically, it is to decompose customer needs into technical problems that can be solved by R&D. Is it an algorithm problem or a hardware problem? Do we technical workers need to adjust parameters or indicators to solve customer requirements? All customer needs In the end, it must be implemented and resolved to product research and development.
It can be seen that in the industrial field, 【ATINY】 goes deep into customer sites, establishes customer product databases, closely connects R&D and needs, makes rapid adjustments to industry applications, and serves the real needs of customers well. This approach is really not easy, and it is commendable.
Ling Qing, the founder of 【ATINY】, said:
Currently, laser displacement sensors will effectively help the innovation and upgrading of automation equipment to meet market needs. In the future, domestic laser displacement sensor manufacturers will gradually become the mainstream of the market.
