Hongxing Wei, President of AUBO(Beijing) Intelligent Science and Technology Co,.Ltd, is interviewed by Haixia, a renowned host of CCTV (China Central Television), in the program of “Outlook-The Future Mission”. Hongxin Wei elaborated the widespread applications of cobot in various fields and its impact on the structure of labor force.
Hongxing Wei said: “China’s cobot market is just getting started. At present, only 100,000 cobots can be sold out annually. But the wider and wider applications will accelerate the development of cobots, and millions or even tens of millions will be needed in the foreseeable future.”
The advantages of cobots include safety, easy operation and flexible production, which enable them to cooperate with people and undertake repetitive tasks that require high precision. So, people are relieved from boring and replaceable tasks and thus can engage in more creative tasks. With the expansion of the cobot’s market, the labour structure of the manufacturing industry will also be adjusted and optimized. At the same time, the application of cobot has been extended to the retail, massage and physiotherapy industries. For example, AUBO has launched service-oriented products with payloads of 3kg and 5kg, which can meet the high-safety and easy-use demands of catering, coffee, milk tea and physiotherapy robots, and thus will effectively alleviate the problem of labour shortage in China.
Hongxing Wei also said: “The development of Cobot needs to break the boundaries of technology by integrating with application scenarios of all walks of life. In this way, the vitality of the market can be released, and new opportunities will be created. At present, AUBO has launched three kinds of cobots. The first one is designed for industrial uses. With a payload of 3kg to 20kg, it can meet clients’ requirements on speed, precision, safety and flexibility. The second one faces the service industry. The third one is a brand-new automatic mobile cobot with hands, feet and even eyes, which broadens the world’s perception of “Cobots are mere lightweight mechanical arms”. With its idea of “Intelligence changes the world. Collaboration makes the future.”, AUBO will, as always, focus on developing cobots to meet the requirements of the market. The goal of AUBO is to create healthy working environments and a better life by having cobots undertake repetitive tasks of all industries.”
Focusing on the development of cobots, AUBO(Beijing) Intelligent Science and Technology Co., Ltd. has set a number of national standards for cobots. The AUBO series of cobots have been widely applied in domestic industries such as 3C, automotive electronics, medical and health care, retail services, higher education, etc., with global sales exceeding 10,000 in total.
