On February 1, 2019, in Shantui Construction Machinery Co., Ltd., Shandong Unicom and Huawei opened the first industrial plant 5G site in Jining. Tests showed that the network is stable, the network bandwidth is 1Gbps, 10 times faster 4G, and the network delay is 20ms, less than one third of 4G. The opening of the 5G site of Shantui Co., Ltd. is another feat after Shandong Unicom opened the first public 5G networks in Jining, marking that Shantui Co., Ltd. officially applied the 5G network to the intelligent manufacturing field.
Smart factory is one of the important application of 5G technology. 5G is not only a technology enhancement, but also a new era of "application services". Taking Shandong Unicom and Shantui's strategic cooperation in 5G as an example, with Shandong Unicom's 5G technology, Shantui will further promote the intelligence of the entire construction machinery and form an autonomous, intelligent construction fleet. In the near future, Shantui will provide customers with integrated intelligent construction solutions through intelligent equipment clusters.
Shantui Co., Ltd. is a national large-scale first-class enterprise that researches, develops, and sells a series of construction equipments and key components such as shovel transportation machinery, pavement and compaction machinery, concrete machinery, excavators, loaders, etc. It has national-level technology centers, Shandong Provincial Engineering Technology Research Center and post-doctoral scientific research workstations and other innovative platforms. Shantui Co., Ltd. takes intelligent manufacturing as the core to promote the deep integration of information technology and industrialization.
At present, Shantui, Shandong Unicom, and Huawei have conducted in-depth and extensive research on how 5G can promote industrial digital transformation. The opening of the 5G network marks the full launch of the smart Shantui 5G application scenario. With the joint efforts of Shantui, Shandong Unicom, and Huawei, a new model for 5G intelligent manufacturing will be created in the near future.
