With the continuous advancement of China’s manufacturing powerhouse, Jiangxi Copper Group’s Guixi Smelter is also accelerating its pace towards intelligent manufacturing. It faces the full life cycle management of copper products, and focuses on improving quality and efficiency and efficient coordination, and gradually realizes the "Metallurgy" logistics automation system, supply chain management and control (quality traceability), analysis and decision-making process (visual inspection) intelligence. Choose the core link of the copper smelting process-smelting and electrolysis two main process workshops to carry out intelligent construction. Through the implementation of automatic three-dimensional warehouse, multi-manipulator coordination, online quality inspection, product quality traceability, new logistics equipment application, industrial big data application and other projects, the exploration and practice of smelting and electrolysis intelligent workshops are carried out. Make the whole logistics link from smelting to electrolysis more efficient, more environmentally friendly and safer. End the use of the Internet, link upstream links (workshops) and downstream users, build an optimized, accurate and efficient cyber-physical system for global coordination, shorten the supply chain, meet the individual needs of users, and form a win-win ecosystem.
The application of the project produces significant economic benefits. Aiming at Guixi Smelter to improve the supply chain management level, reduce the logistics cost of anode plate and cathode copper transshipment, and improve logistics efficiency. At the same time, the project has greatly improved the quality stability of cathode copper and the efficiency of quality traceability and production efficiency, achieved a 10% increase in production efficiency, a 20% reduction in material transfer time, a 10% reduction in logistics costs, and a reduction in enterprise manufacturing costs. In addition, the application of the results of the project will increase labor efficiency by 50% and reduce labor costs by 10%. In summary, the company will achieve economic benefits of more than 15 million yuan each year.
