E (intelligent) road leading - to build an international intelligent home advanced manufacturing base


Source: Kitchen and bathroom headlines
Rampage five years, the pattern of intelligent sanitary ware lakes are beginning to show the outline. When the tide recedes, is also the time to see the naked swimmer, insufficient strength of the enterprise back stage, with the strength of the enterprise ushered in the explosive development. In the field of intelligent sanitary ware to master the core technology and core manufacturing capabilities of the Hiercon, undoubtedly became one of the biggest winners. Five years ago, in the intelligent sanitary ware emergence of Xierkang put forward the slogan "master the core technology", five years later it put forward "E (intelligent) road leading - to build an international intelligent home advanced manufacturing base ", promising a vision of fighting for the glory of China's intelligent manufacturing.

 

What does Xierkang rely on to build an "international advanced manufacturing base for intelligent homes"? Manufacturing, products, or capital strength?

At the end of November in Zhejiang, the coldness was beginning to show. Kitchen and bathroom headline reporter and his entourage made a trip to the production base of Zhejiang Hircon Smart Home. That day, the leaders of the China Real Estate Association, the domestic ranking of the top three in charge of a bathroom e-commerce, the boss of the domestic sanitary ceramics enterprises and a line of people also came. Seemingly coincidental, but the reception staff of Hiercon said that from the beginning to the end of the year, every day there will be companies from all over the country, agents, real estate engineering customers, foreign brands responsible for the factory visit, Hiercon even hired an executive from the best local hotels dedicated to the reception.

 Three production bases with an annual production capacity of over 1.6 million sets

Focusing on "mechatronics" electronics business, Xierkang began to get involved in intelligent sanitary ware in 2011, after four years of latent, in 2015 ushered in the explosive development, since then has been constantly expanding production capacity. Xierkang Chairman Wu Xishan introduced the rapid development of these years, every year after the construction of new plants put into operation, the next year has not enough.

At present, Xierkang has a total of three production bases, the first and second production base has been fully put into operation, the third production base belongs to the new production base, covering an area of nearly 100 acres, part of the plant is still under construction. The three bases together cover an area of nearly 200 acres, the annual production capacity of 1.6 million sets of intelligent sanitary products, but apparently this capacity has not yet reached the needs of Xierkang, with the construction of other plants, production capacity will continue to increase.

 World-class manufacturing base, Industry 4.0 standard workshop

Manufacturing is the fundamental of national development. Around the current competition of manufacturing industry, the United States has proposed CPS (physical physical system), Germany has proposed Industry 4.0, China has proposed "Made in China 2025", and Japan has also proposed "re-emergence strategy". This is especially famous for Germany's Industry 4.0, which is considered to be the opening of the prologue of the fourth industrial revolution.

To create an "international smart home advanced manufacturing base", Xierkang's new production base is laid out according to the standards of the world's top smart production bases, and both production equipment and production environment are built according to Industry 4.0 standards. The intelligent manufacturing control center, automated assembly line, intelligent aging test line, and circular assembly line ...... deeply integrate intelligent information technology with industrial systems. At present, this new production base already has 6 SMT electronic control board manufacturing equipment, several intelligent toilet production lines and final assembly lines put into operation. In addition to the production of intelligent toilets, the new base also produces other products related to smart home.

International standard SMT workshop, "black light factory" production

Made in China is changing to China creation, China speed to China quality change, Chinese products to China brand change, in the process of this change, to produce high-quality products to meet consumer demand, need to have advanced equipment and manufacturing technology support. The key to the rapid rise of Xierkang intelligent sanitary ware lies in the mastery of the core technology of intelligent toilet manufacturing, such as the manufacturing of the control board of intelligent toilets.

Among domestic intelligent toilet manufacturers, Xierkang is one of the few companies with international standards - SMT electronic control board manufacturing equipment, the workshop is fully equipped with central air conditioning, constant temperature and humidity, 100,000 dust-free anti-static. In Xierkang's SMT production workshop, the control board can be produced in black light - from raw materials to final products, all the processing, transportation and testing processes can be completed in the empty "black light factory", even without workers on duty.

 Dust-free injection molding workshop with over 50 sets of advanced injection molding machines

To ensure the quality of our products, we must first start at the source, with the raw materials. Unlike many smart sanitary ware companies, Xierkang produces many of its own materials, such as injection molding. In order to produce higher quality products, Xierkang has introduced more than 50 advanced injection molding machines, using medical grade ABS particles to produce smart covers. Its development and production of imitation ceramic plastic process cover, the product mirror surface smooth and delicate, and the ceramic body into a natural. What's great is that the dust-free injection molding workshop is also "black light production" - the lights are off, people leave, and the workshop runs 24 hours a day.

 30 years of experience in precision electronics, 2000 processes

Advanced equipment can be bought with money, and spacious workshops can be built with money, but advanced hardware equipment alone cannot produce advanced and stable products. The manufacturing of intelligent toilets is essentially closely related to precision microelectronics manufacturing. Before entering the field of intelligent sanitary ware, Xierkang has been in the electronics industry for nearly 30 years, and Taiwan, South Korea and many other places have deep cooperation with electronic companies, accumulated the dust-free manufacturing of electronic products, anti-static production process and other technologies, as well as training the professionalism of production workers.

Wu Xishan said, electronic manufacturing technology is not just a look, to really digest and master electronic manufacturing technology needs time to settle, Xierkang spent many years to complete the introduction of electronic manufacturing technology, absorption, digestion. The finished product of intelligent toilet looks simple, but in Xierkang, in order to ensure the stable quality of each batch of products, an intelligent toilet from design, incoming materials to packaging factory, counting a total of 2,000 procedures.

 Zero water pressure, three memory flushing and other core technologies

Some people say that intelligent sanitary ware has encountered a "bottleneck" in function and technology, it is difficult to have a new breakthrough, corroborated by the new products of various intelligent sanitary ware companies in 2019 are not too prominent features and technology. Xierkang obviously disagrees with this view, it believes that intelligent sanitary products in the segmentation of functional areas still have great space. For example, the "zero water pressure 2.0" flushing system launched in 2019 by Xierkang, equipped with dual-core drive technology, flushing is not affected by water pressure, "upstairs, but also down the village". Even in the state of zero water pressure, can be flushed without worry, and can reach the standard of the first-class water efficiency of the toilet. Such as for the use of users and the design of the "BMW three memory" knob, three memory knob, can store three user habits, very humane.

E Road leading, layout of smart home

Since around 2016, "smart home" has stood on the wind, and a number of technology companies have been involved in the game - Apple released HomeKit, Samsung took SmartTings, and various domestic enterprises also cut into the market in different ways. Smart home market, Xiaomi, Haier, the United States and so on all entered. As a part of the smart home, the rapid growth of intelligent sanitary ware naturally attracts many companies across the border, Hiercon is also from the electronics industry cross-border to the field of intelligent sanitary ware companies.

What the outside world may not know is that before getting involved in smart sanitary ware, Xierkang has been producing smart door locks, air purifiers and other home products. After the big show in the field of intelligent sanitary ware, mastering the core intelligent manufacturing technology, Xierkang again refers to the smart home.
Wu Xishan believes that intelligent sanitary ware will still grow at a high rate in the future, and will even explode when the market penetration rate is close to 10%. But with the changes in consumer groups, especially young people become the main consumer, as well as the changes in the overall home industry pattern, the future of intelligent sanitary ware will be more closely integrated with intelligent home, such as intelligent access control systems, intelligent security systems, intelligent sanitary ware and other home products, may be integrated into one or several intelligent systems. This combination, the challenges brought to the enterprise is not only the product level, but also sales channels, consumer habits, etc.
