Smart robots are moving towards the field of 3C production automation
the industry has finally developed a new generation of robots that are more intelligent! According to the Wall Street Journal, the current action of the new generation of robots has developed to be quite smart and accurate, enough to undertake the task of assembling smart, 3C products and other consumer electronic devices
although robots have been used in industrial manufacturing for many years, until recently, their actions are not flexible enough to engage in complex and delicate product assembly or easy reprogramming tasks. However, for small consumer electronic devices with short product life cycle, the quality of these two tasks is very important
but this situation is beginning to change, and electronic product manufacturers are beginning to accept a new generation of robots. According to an article in Wall Street, the experimental machine of the same level, The anchor and anchor chain, the main components used in Hitachi shipyards, must be tested. Robots have been used to manufacture hard disks since last autumn. Robots have replaced the task of manually fixing the upper cover of the drive fan with screws, reducing the production time of each hard disk by an average of 1 minute.
in addition, an article in the New York Times mentioned that in a manufacturing plant of Philips in the Netherlands, How do robots assemble higher-order electric razors that are more complex than intelligent ones
"through these more dexterous robots, we can manufacture all kinds of consumer equipment in the world," said a manager of Philips assembly line
these reports mean that the current styles of assembled electronic products are assembled manually by low wage workers. Foxconn has plans to install more than onemillion robots in the next few years. Therefore, it would be surprising if other major contract manufacturers have not proposed similar plans! In addition, an article in times also mentioned that Flextronics is increasingly automating assembly operations. As Mike Dennison, the president of the company, said, "when can we see robots completely replace manpower? There will always be a reasonable price point, and we are very close."
these new robots also have an important impact on electronic component dealers. Although the warehousing operations of electronic component dealers have been automated to a large extent, I saw last time that they still manually loaded and unloaded goods on the shelf. Amazon has achieved remarkable results in reducing the use of manpower, and even bought robot manufacturer Kiva systems for $775million last spring

the article of times introduces a storage system before and after the transformation of wholesale grocery dealers. The old storage system covers an area of 500000 square feet, and the loading and unloading of shelves are completed by hundreds of cargo cranes and pickups after people receive orders from headsets. After adopting the new system, it covers an area of only 30000 square feet. A four story electric elevator can accommodate 168 robots like carts on each floor. These robots are wirelessly controlled. The TPU per hour is used for 1 series of 3D printing, and the moving speed can reach 25 miles
of course, electronic component dealers are in the process of evaluation, and may have begun to use these smart robots. It is worth mentioning that Stephen Kaufman, former chairman of Arrow Electronics, now serves on the board of Kiva. According to some recent reports, Amazon's acquisition of Kiva may mean that Amazon will enter the warehousing and logistics business. Other robot technology companies with cutting-edge technology deserve our attention, such as adept technology, symbot, industrial perception Inc., Kawada Industries Inc., FANUC Corp., abb Ltd., heartland robotics and Redwood robotics
