Innovation design & Advanced manufacturing Intelligent manufacturing

 Intelligent manufacturing is one of the important project put forward in the “Thirteenth Fifth Plan” by our country, which is also a pivot goal proposed in “Made in China 2025”.  Intelligent manufacturing makes full use of the telecommunication, artificial intelligence, nanomaterial, big data and internet of things. The innovation is based on technique integration, which put the product design, manufacture, assembling, operation, maintenance into digitalization, intellectualization, interconnection. Eventually, the precision, efficiency and reliability of the assembling are improved, the cost of energy and raw material are reduced, the emission of carbon in manufacturing is decreased. Prof.s in the intelligent manufacture field in SUSTech are chair Prof. Yiming Rong, ccedemician Peigen Li, and associate Prof. Xuekun Li.

The main topics are listed as follows:
(1) Robot assembling and robot-numerical control machine
(2) Theory and methodology of design of high performance intelligent equipment
(3) Intelligent monitor and diagonalization of manufacturing process, as well as the implementation of industrial big data
(4) Precision/high-precision technology of tough materials
