On September 17, at the main forum of 2020 Zhongguancun forum, Lei Jun, the founder of Xiaomi, revealed that Xiaomi's high-end mobile phone intelligent factory in Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone is currently planning the second phase.
Lei Jun said that after the plant is completed and put into operation, a factory may have only 100 people, all of them engineers, but it may achieve an output value of 60 billion or 70 billion yuan a year.
Lei Jun also revealed that in addition to the placement machine, all the production equipment in the factory is developed by Xiaomi or the company invested by Xiaomi.
On the evening of August 11, Lei Jun first exposed Xiaomi's intelligent factory in his 10th anniversary speech. With fully automatic production lines inside, it can produce millions of mobile phones a year without even turning on lights and no intervention.
It is understood that Xiaomi intelligent factory is located in Yizhuang, covering an area of 18600 square meters. It is not only a factory, but also a laboratory of Xiaomi. It is responsible for the pre research of new technologies, new materials, new technologies and breakthrough new products.
Three years ago, Xiaomi proposed to be a manufacturing industry and chose to do high-end equipment as a breakthrough. It has invested and incubated more than 100 intelligent equipment companies and established an industry fund of 12 billion yuan. Lei Jun said that he was most proud of the first phase of Xiaomi intelligent factory in Yizhuang.
Talking about why Xiaomi should build an intelligent factory, he said there are three reasons: first, Xiaomi wants to be a fully automatic chemical plant; second, for Xiaomi, this is essentially a super large-scale laboratory; third, it helps Xiaomi develop enough equipment.
