Liu Yong: Schaeffler Is Promoting An Intelligent Bearing System In China
The second China-made 2025 ( Shenzhen ) summit was held in Shenzhen from April 8 to 9, 2017,
organized by Xinhua News Agency's "Financial State Weekly" and the International Economic and
Technical Cooperation Center of the Mininstry of industry and Information Technology. Schaeffler
Investment (China) Co., Ltd. Chief Technology Officer Liu Yong attended and spoke.
He said that Schaeffler had some time ago and in the car to promote an intelligent bearing
system in China, also known as bearing pre-health management system, if the product is applied
once, in the future to help the railway and transportation industry to achieve a lot of key
components Pre-maintenance. Now there are naerly one-third of the high-speed rail is to stay
inside the maintenance library, maintenance costs are quite high, and we can help China's rail
to achieve lower costs.
The fllowing is a lecture:
Liu Yong: Leaders, liadies and gentleman, good afternoon
The topic of today's speech is "efficient driving, gallop the future". This topic is also
very fit our current theme.
Before I start talking about this topic, I'd like to take a moment to introduce our
company. Schaeffler is a German company with 85,000 employees and nearly 90,000 employees. Mainly
two directions, one is industrial products, one is the car products. Cars in the business sector
to reach nearly 80% of the share, the other is the industrial sector. Our company grew very fast
in previous years and has a lot of factories in the world, such as Eupope, America, Great China
and Asia Pacific. There are now nearly 800 engineering teams and R & D teams i China. Our company
is German family business, may also be Europe's largest family business, was founded by Mr.
Schaeffle in 1949.
In China, Schaeffler entered China in 1995, and so far, there have been nearly 12,000
employees. R & D and headquarters in Shanghai, we have factories in Jiaxing, Suzhou, Nanjing. We
plan to build a factory in Xiangtan, Hunan. We are positioning the future factory, that is, a new
intelligent factory, all the intelligent manufacturing technology used in the construction of
this new plant. This is our China headquarters in Shanghai, there are 4000 square meters, nearly
1000 people R & D team work here.
Our company's products, first of all the automative field, drive system, engine system,
chassis control system. It is possible that you have not heard of our company name, but if you
use the European Department, the US department and many independent brand cars, open the hood,
a lot of cars with our products, very many engines, chassis key parts Are our company, including
the rod clutch and so on many of our company to provide the transmission system. In the new
energy vehicles, hybrid inside, we also have a lot of new products appear. In addition, the
industrial sector, we cover a very wide, basically covering all industrial areas. why? Because our
most important industrial products are bearings, our Schaeffler brand is one of the world's three
major bearing brands. When you drive, our company's products are helping you drive the whole car.
Schaeffler is made of bearings, the bearing area of the product is very full, nearly 40,000
different types of bearing products, serving 20,30 million different customers, as small as one
millimeter dentist drill, Ten meters of wind energy bearings, are our flagship product. We have
developed a large number of industrial electromechanical integration products, and now active and
Internet of things, industrial 4.0 all intelligent maintenance connected.
Our next major research direction is called smart bearings, that is, digital bearings. How
the value of the bearing embodied in the digital to achieve intelligence, and intelligent products
supporting the field.
If you look at our company's website, our company's website above four development
direction, very coincidence, and just Shen introduced the direction of IBM have some fit. The
first is environmentally friendly driving, low emissions, new energy. The second is the city
traffic, that is, all new energy vehicles. The third is intercity traffic, including all the
first stop of the new intercity traffic, including China's high-speed rail, aerospace. The
fourth is the energy chain, we focus on the energy chain of solar energy (14.320, -0.26, -1.78%),
wind power generation, and even tides.
Tell us about the environment-friendly driving our company's flagship product. First of all,
on the traditional engine, we have optimized all the drive systems to achieve lower energy
consumption and lower emissions. The second stage, that is, we are now in the car market is very
hot hybrid, and now all of China's hybrid car inside, if you open auspicious, GM 50, Chang'an,
Great Wall, have used our products. We use the different hybrid modules to help the car realize
the first step in hybrid and new energy vehicles. At the same time, we are now actively promoting
40 volts hybrid, micro-mixed, strong mixing and other products, including one of the key
products. Car in the future direction of development inside, the first is pure electric, which is
long, the second is intelligent, the ultimate goal is unmanned, we actively in these three
aspects of the layout and promotion.
In order to achieve these future programs, we are now in the various regions of the world,
according to different needs to build a lot of cars, to supply our customer experience. These
models gather all of our new technology, and if you go to our Shanghai headquarters, we can show
you a good mix of cars, new energy electric vehicles, and some good solutions.
In addition, urban transport, we can see that the proportion of the population of large
cities today, including the proportion of the future large-scale population and the proportion is
gradually improved, which is mentioned in many experts' reports, so this is a development
Direction, that is, how to solve the traffic problem. Pure electric, so far we have developed a
very successful product is the wheel motor, the car is four wheels plus the battery, the motor
and a few couches on it, the traditional engine and gearbox did not. Such a technique, I think
just a matter of time.
In the field of intercity transport, high-speed rail is currently in China to actively
promote a product area, wind energy, solar energy are we are very concerned about. We have some
time ago and cooperation in the car, and now in China to promote an intelligent bearing system,
also known as bearing pre-health management system, which is for our own products, if the product
is applied once, in the future to help the railway and transportation industry to achieve Many
pre-maintenance of key components. We all know that there are now nearly one-third of the high-
speed rail is to stay in the maintenance of the library inside, maintenance costs are quite high,
how to do the state of repair, how to help China's rail to achieve lower costs? We are also
working with China Railway to solve many problems.
We can see that this is some of our products (see PPT), including our generation in the
bearing side of the generator rotor. Why does the bearing end require a generator rotor? We all
know that the bus is no power, if the wheels and the bearing side of each wheel can automatically
generate electricity, the future can help the entire railway to achieve intelligence, which is
also to promote the Chinese railway.
Energy, our company is mainly engaged in energy energy, because China's wind energy
accounted for one third of the world but also more market share, wind energy for our country's
energy chain is also an important part. In the wind energy inside, our bearing management system
and pre-maintenance management system in it, can help wind energy to achieve higher efficiency. At
the same time, in addition to wind energy, there are solar energy, tidal power, tidal power is
the use of seawater to achieve energy, we are now actively promoting new products and new
