     Mon, Oct 17 2016 | 9:01A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"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."

     Fri, Aug 19 2016 | 11:33A | Business / Industry | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"NVIDIA has done very well over the past couple of years and through some rough patches. They continue to move forward with design and are quite agile in addressing new markets and abandoning areas that were not profitable. They seem to remain focused and have been able to capitalize on the mistakes of their competition. We shall see if some of their new endeavors actually make money for the company, but for now their current products are propelling the company forward."
