Foxconn details 40,000 robots at factories - PCSTATS.com Foxconn details 40,000 robots at factories

"The Foxconn Group has installed 40,000 robots for handling manufacturing jobs at a number of its plans in China, according to a Taipei-based Central News Agency (CNA) report, citing the group's general manager of the automation technology department committee, Dai Chia-peng.

The industrial robots, namely Foxbot, are being rolled out from the group's plants in Taiwan, Shenzhen and Jingzhen (Shanxi province, China), with total robot production reaching about 10,000 units a year, Dai indicated.

With the exception of some key components such as speed reducers and servo motors, Foxconn manufactures the bulk of controllers and components needed for the robots in-house, Dai noted, adding that the company is also developing related software and solutions.

The Foxbots are currently being installed in a number the group's factories in China, including an industrial base in Zhengzhou, a tablet plant in Chengdu, and computer products and peripheral plants in Kunshan and Jiashan.

In addition to producing robotic products in-house, the group does not rule the possibility of acquiring other robot-producing companies, Dai noted, adding that Foxconn also plans to step into the production of medical robots."
