as the world's largest OEM of electronic products, Foxconn is already developing industrial robots. Their goal is to achieve 30% production automation in their factories in China by 2020. In addition, Foxconn is also preparing to start selling its self-developed robot foxbot to other manufacturers in the mainland

according to Foxconn executives, repositioned robot solutions and automated assembly will be the focus of Foxconn's future research and development. Now, Foxconn is vigorously streamlining its huge workforce and building new sales channels. However, Foxconn CEO Guo Tai can only install the machine to achieve this goal. At the annual conference last week, zhengjiming pointed out that media reports that Foxconn will achieve 70% production automation within three years are wrong

Foxconn has been silent about its robot project, and last week confirmed that it opened a robot testing laboratory in Shenzhen. Day Chia Peng, general manager of Foxconn automation technology development committee, said that Foxconn's factories in China now have more than 50000 fully operable industrial robots and thousands of automation equipment. Foxconn plans to add at least 10000 robots to its factories in China within one year

however, this is still not satisfactory to Gou, who said in 2011 that the number of robots in Chinese factories is expected to reach 1million by 2014. Now, the company employs more than 1million people in the mainland. Dai Jiapeng said, "in terms of numbers, this is a dream. We hope to achieve our goals, but the reality is completely different from the ideal."

Foxconn began to develop its own industrial robots in 2007. Now it has 1600 employees in two factories in Shenzhen and Jincheng, and can manufacture 10000 foxbot robots every year. These robots can perform more than 20 manufacturing tasks, including pressing, printing, polishing, packaging and testing

Dai Jiapeng said that these robots can replace the so-called "3D" human workers, that is, dirty, dangerous and boring jobs, which will be Foxconn's priority agenda. The reason why Foxconn vigorously develops industrial robots is mainly due to the intensification of safety concerns and the shortage of human resources in recent years. 033w/mk is reduced to 0foxbot, which will soon be put into the market. Its first customer may be another Chinese manufacturer, but Dai Jiapeng did not disclose the name of the latter

Jia Peng added that in fact, robots are only part of the overall solution. The gripper, sensor, vision system, parts feeder and software of robot are also important. He called on Chinese local governments to be cautious and not to over invest in this sector, or to regard robots as a panacea to solve labor shortages. Dai Jiapeng also stressed that robots are not a tool to counter the economic downturn

on May 16, the industrial chain advanced manufacturing and intelligent warehousing summit will be held at the CMM exhibition in Dongguan. At that time, the advanced technology discussion and case sharing in all links of the industrial chain from manufacturing to warehousing will be fully displayed, and participation is welcome)
