Dahua opens innovative IoT industrial park

Hangzhou, China

In order to grasp the current manufacturing trends and seize the Zeitgeist of Industry 4.0, a new smart IoT industrial park in Hangzhou has been put to use in June, 2017 by Dahua Technology, a leading solution provider in the global video surveillance industry.

The Dahua Smart (IoT) Industrial Park occupies in total 512 acres in the Fuyang district of Hangzhou, about 20 minutes’ drive from Dahua's headquarters, and is designed to host 6000 staff (by 2017, 4500 people have been working/living in the 262 acres of phase one area). With top notch technologies, personnel, materials and other benefits, it is expected that Dahua’s smart industrial park will bring productivity and quality to a brand new level.

The automatic production solution based on integrated information system not only grants a higher productivity that significantly shortens the delivery cycle time for Dahua customers, but also a greater flexibility to specialised requests and ever-changing reality.

The employment of software such as ERP, PLM, PDM, MES, APS and WMS helps to achieve information integration, which, combined with industrial cameras, RFID sensory technologies and automation technologies, can integrate personnel, logistics, works, engineering projects and finance from respective sections of production(preparation, assembly, testing, packaging, inspection, shipment), rendering the whole process visible, traceable and digital.

The surface mount equipment alone illustrates the incredible efficiency of the whole production system. The high-end devices (including mounter, printer, automated optical inspection equipment, Ersa reflow soldering tools, etc) provided by ASM (originally Siemens) achieve a speed among the fastest in the world. According to IPC standard, X4iS, the latest high-speed mounter can process 125,000 components per hour, or 35 per second. The X35 multifunctional mounter can place 54000 components per hour, or 15 per second. A production line in the X series can enhance productivity by 2.7 times while reducing the consumption of energy by 52%, compared to the original production line in the D series under the same conditions.

The faster speed also applies to the development of new molding, as the Dahua smart industrial park provides great benefit of internal synergy, allowing the end-to-end vertical supply chain with marketing, R&D and manufacturing efficiently integrated. The advanced organising system is supported by top notch equipment, such as the Makino high-speed graphite processing machine, GF CNC, GF WEDM-LS machine, Hexagon 3D Nikon projectors and electronic displays. With a processing accuracy of +/-0.002 to +/-0.005MM, while also supporting CAD / CAM / CAE collaborative development and simultaneous manufacturing, these machines enable Dahua to develop new mechanical molding in as short as 7 days.

By far, this development system has already produced high precision moldings for Lechange Robots, monitoring cameras in the TP1-TC6 series, G20 intelligent head-gear, smoke alarms for fire detectors, etc., all of which demonstrate the effectiveness of the system in shortening the development cycle and maintaining a competitive edge with new products.

Higher quality saves lots of time and economic costs for clients. Even more importantly, higher quality results in less likelihood for products to malfunction especially when they are used in critical, not-allowed-to-go-wrong situations. Dahua’s products are guaranteed with a higher quality for two reasons: first, Dahua has set a high standard of accuracy in production; second, with a reliability lab at the production end, Dahua has put together an effectively closed loop for quality control in the manufacturing process.

In conclusion, Dahua Smart (IoT) Industrial Park is endowed with the latest and world leading manufacturing equipment/system boasting high level automation and intelligence, which is essential to satisfy the ever higher demands from clients in terms of delivery time, specialised use and quality. There is still great potential to this new smart industrial park. It is literally only in its phase one. And in the future phase, it is expected to be more intelligent, to realise client-centered flexible production and to enable a safer society and smarter living.
