Zoomlion Celebrates Maiden Assembly of Intelligent Excavator in Zoomlion Smart Industrial City

CHANGSHA — Zoomlion Heavy Industry Science & Technology Co., Ltd. has constructed its first intelligent excavator, as it rolled off the assembly line on December 31, 2020 in the first constructed Intelligent Excavator Manufacturing Park in Zoomlion Smart Industrial City in Changsha, Hunan Province.

The project continues to complete its general construction while manufacturing advanced and intelligent machinery products.

The 20-ton and 48-ton excavators coming off the new assembly line were manufactured in an intelligent workshop with an area of 36,000 square meters (387,500 square feet). Eschewing conventional forklifts, more than 100 intelligent transport robots deliver over 9,000 spare parts instantly across the workshop, as well as other industrial robots to increase automation and intelligent production.

“The Park was designed in accordance with the highest international standards, fully implementing the concepts of intelligence, digitization and ecological sustainability and has the most intelligent, flexible and precise intelligent factories and unmanned production lines,” noted Zhang Chunxin, chairman and CEO of Zoomlion.

The Park boasts the convergence of intelligent logistics and production scheduling, industrial AI, digital twinning, industrial internet and big data technologies with the Park’s management and control system. The effort will realize digital and transparent manufacturing and enable the intelligent factories to reduce R&D cycle, operation cost and energy consumption while improving production efficiency significantly.

The Park will provide support for Zoomlion’s excavator machinery sector and upon full completion the industrial park will reach an annual manufacturing capacity of 50,000 of all types of intelligent excavators.
