The demand for equipment from lighting manufacturers has surged, and the "LED placement machine king" seizes market opportunities again
The LED lighting industry is strongly supported by national policies due to its green environmental protection and long service life. With technological progress and cost reduction, its good price-performance ratio has also been widely welcomed by consumers, the market penetration rate and application range have continued to expand, and the market scale has expanded rapidly.
According to data from the Advanced Industry Research LED Research Institute (GGII), the global LED lighting market output value reached 536 billion yuan in 2017, of which the LED lighting output value of mainland China was 296.9 billion yuan, an increase of nearly 21% year-on-year . Considering that the global LED lighting penetration rate still has room to double, GGII predicts that China's LED lighting output value will reach 341.5 billion yuan in 2018, a year-on-year increase of 15%.
Since 2018, due to the overall environmental impact of rising raw material prices, the continuous escalation of the Sino-US trade war and exchange rate fluctuations, the output value of China’s LED lighting market is still growing steadily, but compared to 2017 The annual growth rate has declined.
As we all know, due to the low barriers to entry in the lighting industry, coupled with the strong support of various policies, many companies in other industries have also begun to enter the LED lighting industry, causing serious overcapacity, leading to further deterioration of the market competition environment and industry concentration. It has also been relatively low. With the overall slowdown in the development of the lighting market, competition in the lighting market will become increasingly fierce, and the industry concentration will become higher and higher. Under this circumstance, companies with stronger technological R&D strength and better quality control will have more market opportunities.
Therefore, in order to seize a higher market share and occupy the commanding heights of the industry, lighting companies promote the industry in two directions. The first is that the market is becoming more and more concentrated. The larger Evergrande, and the large lighting companies have more advantages in product concentration; the second is the reform of the industrial chain. Now companies have entered a stage of competition for comprehensive strength, including resource integration, product integration, Supply chain integration, market integration, etc. In other words, the LED industry is a game of capital and technology. It is a "war" to compete for comprehensive strength, and the ones that can win the market in the end will be those with strong financial strength, a sound industrial chain, and a brand line. enterprise.
In this context, large LED lighting companies have adopted scale as one of the means to enhance their core competitiveness, because large-scale production can bring obvious economic benefits to companies, such as reducing manufacturing costs, raw material procurement costs, Product pricing, etc. To achieve scale, the cooperation and participation of lighting equipment manufacturers must be inseparable, because large-scale production requires lighting equipment to quickly improve production efficiency and reduce production costs.
Shenzhen Yitong Automation Equipment Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Yitong Automation”) since its establishment, has been committed to the R&D and manufacturing of placement machine equipment, insisting on the concept of “serving customers” and establishing Market wind direction. After more than 10 years of accumulation and precipitation, YTO Automation has broken through various technical difficulties in the patch industry, mastered core innovative technologies, and obtained a series of related invention patents.
Today, Yitong Automation has successfully developed LED patch equipment that can quickly improve assembly production efficiency and reduce labor costs, and a complete after-sales service system has won the recognition of the market and the majority of customers, and has stabilized its leading position in the patch industry.
It is understood that for different market areas, Eton Automation has successively launched LED light board mounters, LED flexible light tape mounters, and wireless Soft lamp strip placement machine, LED display placement machine, copper wire lamp placement machine, lens placement machine and module placement A series of products such as machines to maximize customer demand. In order to meet the new demands of lighting manufacturers for mounting equipment on a large scale, YITONG Automation has continuously upgraded its own products.
Yitong Automation General Manager Yu Yaoguo confidently stated that “The placement machine launched by Yitong Automation is the fastest in the world, among which the actual production capacity of the ‘ET’, ‘HT’ series of LED placement machines has been Up to 170,000CPH, which greatly improves production efficiency for customers and reduces production and manufacturing costs. ”
In fact, with the gradual maturity of LED lighting products, LED lighting companies have higher and higher requirements for production equipment. For example, major LED lighting manufacturers such as Op Lighting, Foshan Lighting, Debang Lighting, Sanxiong Aurora, etc. are all establishing distinctive automated production lines. In the automated production lines, equipment plays a vital role.
In order to cooperate with the automated production lines established by lighting manufacturers, Yitong Automation has developed and produced the world's fastest automatic LED high-speed placement machine, multi-function placement machine, module placement machine and other automated production equipment, which has become a veritable name "The king of placement machines". According to Yu Yaoguo, "Yitong Automation can not only independently research and develop new LED chip equipment, but also customize R&D and production according to the specific requirements of customers. We can reach the output value of 120,000 CPH even for a 5-meter-long light strip. ”
It is worth mentioning that in response to the continuous improvement of equipment accuracy and efficiency requirements of lighting manufacturers, YITONG Automation has recently developed two new equipment, HT-E5 and E9T, which have greatly improved the speed. It can reach 40,000 points per hour, which greatly reduces the number of labor and can reduce the cost of customers by 20%-40%. It is understood that the HT-E5 is an upgraded version of the E5, adopting linear motors (also known as magnetic levitation) in terms of structure, and has a greater increase in speed, the same is true for E9T.
“So far, these two new devices have been tested and are expected to be officially launched on the market in October this year. In addition, these two new devices are not only suitable for the LED lighting industry, but also for small household appliances, so they have good market prospects. "Yu Yaoguo told Gaogong LED.
Generally speaking, the biggest problem facing the entire LED industry now is the high labor cost and difficulty in recruiting. Therefore, it has become an effective way for lighting companies to improve production efficiency, reduce labor costs, and improve personnel shortages through automation, which also brings huge room for development to equipment companies. For LED SMD equipment, full automation, intelligence, and technology will become its development trend. Next, Yitong Automation will seize the existing opportunities and conditions, continuously improve innovation and manufacturing capabilities, and increase talent All aspects of training, technology transformation, material transformation, production transformation, using new technologies, new processes, new production and new management methods to improve product quality and productivity, so as to occupy the world economic market and realize market value.
