The Hefei Institute of Physical Science, under the Chinese Academy of Sciences, took six months to develop the robot, which costs a quarter of the price of existing models around the world.
It is expected to weld structures and be employed in nonstandard welding projects, said Li Tao, PhD, director of the project.
According to Li, the robot adopts Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm technology, which facilitates ease of movement, rapid response time and an increase in the accuracy of positioning. It is also designed to remember working paths and repeat operations automatically.
