China invents low-cost welding robot
HEFEI, Nov 05, 2013 (Xinhua via COMTEX) --
Chinese scientists announced on Tuesday
that they had invented a low-cost welding robot, which can help
improve welding efficiency for small factories.
The Hefei Institute of Physical Science under the Chinese Academy
of Sciences took six months to develop the robot, which costs a
quarter of existing models in the world.
It is expected to weld metal structural parts and works for
non-standard welding projects, said Dr. Li Tao, director of the
According to Li, the robot adopts Selective Compliance Assembly
Robot Arm (SCARA) technology, which allows it to move more easily,
respond more quickly and improve the accuracy of positioning. It is
