Delta to Invest NT$250 M. to Set Up Industrial Robot R&D Center in Central Taiwan Science Park

Taipei, Sept. 18, 2012 (CENS)–Following the footsteps of Hon Hai Precision (Foxconn) and Hiwin Technologies, Delta Electronics Inc., a large-sized manufacturer of electronics in Taiwan, has decided to invest NT$250 million to set up an R&D center for the development of industrial robots in Central Taiwan Science Park (CTSP).

Delta’s vice president Simon Chang announced the investment plan after visiting CTSP Administration’s director-general W.K. Yang on September 14. He said that the R&D center, owned by Delta’s reinvested company, is scheduled to be completed at the end of October. The first industrial robot devised by the center is expected to be unveiled three months later after the center becomes operational in November.

Chang said that the investment case is part of Delta’s five-year industrial robot development plan, with the said reinvested company, which is engaged in developing and manufacturing smart industrial robots, laser facilities and automation equipment, to run the R&D center.

The center, Chang furthered, will take advantage of Delta’s cutting-edge controller and servo motor technologies as well as special integration of software and hardware for industrial automation to work out various industrial robots. The development project will be centered on delta and articulated robots, and then extended to higher-end multi-axis articulated models. Launched robots will be mainly supplied to Delta initially, and will then be promoted to light industries and food making industry.

To counter an aging population and persistently rising labor wages, manufacturing industries have been moving to step up automated production. Aware of the huge business opportunities, Delta hence is determined to develop and supply automation facilities coupled with industrial robots for higher utility, which can help customers minimize investment risks in introducing specialty automation equipment that is costly and usually for single purposes.
