PIX C-ZONE 01
When vehicle manufacturing changes，mobility innovates
The automotive industry is undergoing constant blows of electrification and intelligentialization. Famous car brands or new-emerging startups, they all believe that future car will be like super computer on wheels. But wait a minute, the revolution will happen when we just replace the steering system with super computers? I’m afraid not. Think about the profound changes in the media industry, it is not about moving contents from newspaper and television to new interfaces like web or internet, it is the decentralized and democratized way of spread and creation that forms today’s new digital media.
It’s the same idea here, we believe that the fundamental revolution within automotive industry will begin with the way cars are manufactured. Henry Ford’s production line is no doubt a great invention in the human history. However, 100 years later, the way how people build cars remains unchanged. Of course, industrial robots have replaced human labor and the manufacturing efficiency has improved significantly. Still, there are problems along the way: extra-large factories, heavy investment, high entry barrier, longer iteration and lead time. These emerging issues in one way or another hinder the innovation and democratization in automotive industry. Fancy factory and huge productivity do not mean faster response to user demands.
That's when PIX 3CM came alive:
Cognitive · Configurable · Collaborative Manufacturing
PIX C-ZONE 01 is the end-to-end digital manufacturing factory that’s embarking the innovation of vehicle manufacturing paradigm.
PIX factory has set up the sensor calibration center, scenario test center, and ODD center based on the demands and features of autonomous driving and connected vehicle industries.
With the adoption of 3CM (Cognitive · Configurable · Collaborative Manufacturing) additive manufacturing system, PIX C-ZONE 01 has established the flexible digital production line with an annual capacity of 2,000 vehicles, ensuring the consistency and stability of product delivery.
Full-stack OEM: From software, electronics, manufacturing, testing, industrial design to supply chain, PIX has provided a turnkey solution for business innovation and vision realization.
Reduce Manufacturing Costs: With PIX modular platform and its digital manufacturing system, the relevant investment has been significantly decreased and autonomous driving vehicles can be produced with flexibility for different industries and application scenarios.
Shorter Lead Time: Go-to-market with short lead time. Great iteration in software development and smart vehicle manufacturing.
3CM (Cognitive · Configurable · Collaborative Manufacturing）
Decentralized, distributed and user-participated way of manufacturing.
With modular and parametric design, also the contribution of industrial robot, 3D printing and artificial intelligence, we make 90% less car parts a possibility. Besides, 3CM enables faster response to customer needs, 60% manufacturing cost reduction (under the same productive capacity), and 75% car iteration time saving.
