Yudu: “Smart” changes in the traditional textile and garment industry
The automatic transport robot goes up and down the elevator according to the instructions and transports the cut fabrics to the corresponding production area; when entering the fitting room, the customer operates the “magic mirror” and data such as height and measurements will be automatically generated; in accordance with the international In the show venue built on the scale of a fashion week, there are catwalk performances every day, and viewers can buy clothes through live broadcast… This is something new that reporters have seen in Yudu County recently.
The textile and garment industry is the leading industry in Yudu County. In recent years, the county has focused on the transformation and upgrading of its traditional advantageous industries of textile and clothing, vigorously promoting digital intelligent production applications, A number of manufacturing companies and demonstration projects have emerged to achieve digital upgrades.
Intelligent manufacturing, making the workshop “smart”
In the intelligent workshop, various machines are running rapidly, and bags of cotton go through processes such as blow cleaning, carding, drawing, winding, etc., and become tubes of high-qualitycotton yarn ;In such a large production workshop, only a few workers can operate the entire production line by controlling buttons. On the big data display screen, the operation status, production variety, output and other information of each loom are clear at a glance… This is Jiangxi WeiCotton Textile Co., Ltd. which has entered the fast lane of intelligent manufacturing. The company’s production scene. Digital transformation allows the company’s various process equipment to be connected to the Internet, enabling full-process equipment data collection, and business managers to monitor production status in real time.
Liu Guanxiu, the person in charge of the company, said that according to the workshop’s spinning production scale of 80,000 spindles, more than 2,000 workers were needed in the past, but now 200 workers can complete the operation.
At Feili Wende Fashion Co., Ltd., the reporter saw the “new favorite” of the smart workshop – the automatic guided vehicle responsible for transporting fabrics. On the assembly line, the cloth on the cutting bed is automatically cut according to laser positioning, and the clothing hanging system quickly delivers the cloth to the worker’s operating table, turning “people looking for goods” into “goods looking for people.” According to reports, each fabric is equipped with its own chip, and workers will scan the code before operating it. Zhao Jie, another person in charge of the company, said, “For example, if a certain piece of clothing is found to be unbuttoned during quality inspection, the hanging system will automatically send the clothing to the worker responsible for this process for rework.” This kind of “cutting pieces go online.” , the intelligent production process of “garments off the production line” can increase production efficiency by 30% and greatly reduce the rework rate.
In people’s minds, the textile and garment industry requires a large amount of labor. Difficulty in recruiting workers and high labor costs have become “stumbling blocks” to the development of garment enterprises.
Ding Yousheng, director of Yudu County Textile and Garment Industry Development Center, said that in recent years, many garment companies have tried to reduce labor costs through intelligent upgrades of equipment. Yudu County also guides enterprises to carry out intelligent transformation by issuing subsidies and other methods, and guides the transformation of the textile and garment industry from labor-intensive to technology-intelligent. According to statistics, there are 121 regulated garment enterprises in the county, 63 of which have implemented intelligent transformation, 2 of which have been rated as provincial intelligent manufacturing benchmark enterprises and 2 provincial 5G application pilot demonstration enterprises. “Digital transformation allows companies to ‘slim down’, with fewer people and increased profitability.” Ding Yousheng said, Machine substitution is a key factor after the garment industry has developed to a certain stage. It is inevitable that compared with ordinary equipment, high efficiency, energy saving, and labor saving are the common characteristics of intelligent equipment.
Personalized customization, let the clothes “speak”
It can take a smart physical test in 2 seconds, and clothing can also be your personal doctor and fitness consultant… In the Metaverse Experience Center of the Intelligent Clothing Industry in Dudu, behind every seemingly ordinary piece of clothing, there is “black technology” “.
Luo Yuqing, executive vice president of Yudu Industrial Design Innovation Research Institute, pointed to a beige down jacket and introduced to reporters that this down jacket uses carbon nanotube heating technology, by implanting heating sheets and braided wires into the fabric of the clothing. To control the temperature of clothes.
“Smart clothing is based on traditional textile clothing and integrates functional auxiliary materials, flexible electronic technology and intelligent technological means. Smart clothing can not only be used in special industries such as chemical production and fire protection, but can also be used in people’s lives, such as health Elderly care, campus education.” Luo Yuqing pointed to a school uniform and said, “This uniform can realize functions such as non-sensitive attendance, health testing, and prevention of loss. What once seemed a distant vision has now become a reality.”
With the upgrade of consumption levels, large-volume, homogeneous clothing products can no longer meet consumer needs, and many clothing companies have begun to seek personalized customization. The pain point of personalized customization is to solve the connection between terminal volume and factory data. Once this pain point is solved, the customization market can cover a wider range, including opening up the international market.
In this regard, Winner Fashion (Ganzhou) Co., Ltd. has its own trick. A smart measuring room of the company made reporters curious. “A few minutes after you stand in, your height, waist circumference and other data will be transmitted directly to the garment workshop. After 7 days, a tailor-made suit will be worn on you.” Li Meifeng, the person in charge of the company, said that this equipment Currently used in two customized brands under Winner, through 16 in-depthSensor, you can get 30 detailed body data in 2 seconds.
The core of personalized customization lies in flexible production. “The smart workshop realizes the exchange of information between products and equipment, equipment and people, people and products, and products and products. A production line has been upgraded from being able to produce only one product to being able to produce more than a dozen products at the same time. Production can be customized according to needs. The goal of small batch and personalized customization. The original production cycle of 15 to 30 days has been shortened to 7 days.” Li Meifeng said that this kind of diversified, targeted and differentiated personalized customization has increased the added value of the product and increased the number of brand users. Stickiness also enhances corporate competitiveness.
Connecting the top and bottom, allowing industries to go to the “cloud”
On March 8, a fashion show was staged at the Duxian FDC Fashion Complex. Along with the beat of music, models displayed Yudu local brand clothing on the T stage. Sitting in the front row of the show are no longer celebrities or fashion buyers, but ordinary consumers.
Pan Junfeng, general manager of Shenzhen Qianhai Sansan Culture Technology Co., Ltd., the operator of the FDC fashion complex, said that the show has reached international standards. From April, one catwalk every day will become the norm here, and at the same time, The show “moves” into the live broadcast room, allowing designers and clothing to face consumers directly, realizing “models performing shows on the cloud, and viewers watching and buying immediately.”
Pan Junfeng said that compared with ordinary clothing live broadcasts, catwalk live broadcasts are more in line with the “golden 40 seconds” live broadcast rule, and can increase the audience’s stickiness to the live broadcast, achieving the effect of attracting traffic and gathering popularity.
“This will help further cultivate our own brand.” Ding Yousheng agreed with this idea. He gave an example: “Yu Du’s ‘Laisu’ cheongsam can currently only be purchased in local physical stores, and the live broadcast of the catwalk show has begun. Later, non-local consumers can directly shop online.”
As a public service platform for the entire industry chain, the FDC Fashion Complex is an intelligent terminal that connects global technology, business, and resources to the textile and apparel industry in Dudu: the central intelligent version room can connect technical personnel in major cities at home and abroad, and will design After the designer’s work is transmitted back, sample clothes can be made on site; the showroom can help designers connect with buyers, brands or distributors, and then hand over the orders to the Yudu factory for production; 6 live broadcast rooms can meet the requirements of live broadcast sales and Cloud publishing enables buying global fabrics and selling global clothing…
As an enterprise, Zhao Jie believes that the FDC fashion complex provides a centralized display and resource sharing platform for Yudu’s clothing brands, allowing enterprises to change from “working alone” to “working together to stay warm”, which can further expand the brand effect and influence.
In Ding Yousheng’s view, the operation method of FDC fashion complex is consistent with the future development direction of Yudu’s clothing industry. He said that Yudu’s clothing industry has experienced many transformations and is gradually leaping from the low-end to the high-end of the industrial value chain. This requires the strong promotion of intelligence and digitalization to build highquality Industrial supporting system and a new industrial ecology.
Carry out digital factory certification, support the digital development of enterprises, and vigorously build new business formats such as flexible production… With the introduction of a series of policies such as the “Implementation Plan for Further Optimizing and Strengthening the Digital Economy” in Yudu, “enterprises” “On the cloud, dividends are on the ground” is a strong signal that Yudu, an old district, has taken a new step in the digital development of the apparel industry.
“Intelligent manufacturing” requires more skills talents
Nowadays, when walking in the Yudu Garment Industrial Park, you can see intelligent equipment and smart factories everywhere. However, with the development of smart manufacturing, many front-line workers have begun to worry about how to keep their “jobs.”
An objective fact is that new technologies, new industries, new business formats, and new models are constantly emerging, and the requirements for labor are getting higher and higher. Behind the replacement of humans by machines, the importance of talents becomes even more prominent. In the future, simple jobs with a single skill and a single technology will be “dissolved”, but new compound jobs are rapidly being created. For example, although some repetitive and simple tasks in factories are completed by robots, the demand for talents in positions such as system maintenance of intelligent equipment, process adjustment and system integration, and software control has increased sharply. This requires that the transformation and upgrading of enterprises should be in line with the development of talents. Skills upgrading is carried out simultaneously and efforts are made to improve the professional skills and quality of the labor force.
Therefore, when facing artificial intelligence, there is no need to worry too much, but you must be prepared. The government should vigorously strengthen the training of skilled talents and create high-quality environment and conditions for the growth of skilled talents. It is necessary to optimize the skills education resources of vocational colleges and improve the training mechanism; increase investment in corporate training bases to enable employees to quickly master skills; improve the salary system and innovative incentive mechanism for industrial workers, especially high-skilled talents, to create an environment conducive to the growth of industrial workers. Social environment; improve the social identity of vocational colleges, so that more young people are willing to attend vocational colleges and achieve skills development.
