This new plant will be located near the group’s robotics campus in China. It should be operational in 2020. Robots for individuals in China will be manufactured in this factory in addition to those manufactured for export to other markets in Asia.
The demand for industrial robots is increasing in China, with manufacturers replacing human workers because of the ever-increasing costs. This growing automation allows them to compete with countries that have lower manufacturing costs.
An ultra-modern factory that will soon open in China
The plant will span an area of 0.7 hectares and will use a lot of software to allow humans and robots to work together. ABB manufactures a wide variety of robots for a wide variety of missions, from manufacturing electronic devices to assembling cars.
