Robotics: The Next Evolution in Flexible Manufacturing
An increasing number of manufacturers are under pressure to produce outstanding products and reduce their costs in a competitive market.
Facteon is pleased to announce two recently signed partnership agreements with major China-based robotics makers, Nanjing Estun Automation Company (Estun) and Hyundai Heavy Industries - Jiangsu Hagong Intelligent Robot Co., Ltd. (HGZN).
Facteon is now a distributor and integration partner for both companies in the Australian and New Zealand markets.
For Australasian manufacturers to stay relevant in an ever-changing and more competitive world, adoption of manufacturing technology from robotics through to Industrial IoT, vision systems and everything in between needs to be on the table. To enable this, Facteon is constantly growing our network of global technology partners. We’re your end-to-end provider of manufacturing automation, custom design and advice.
Estun and HGZN offer a range of industrial robot solutions, including robotic welding, assembly, material handling and palletising. A variety of robot sizes and price points are on offer to suit manufacturers of all sizes.
A common barrier to robotics adoption is the initial capital investment. Now, with a range of robotics solutions coupled with Facteon’s implementation expertise manufacturers can take those first steps into robotic automation by selecting a solution that suits both their budget and operational requirements.
Estun is a leader in the Chinese robotics industry with capacity to produce around 9,000 industrial robots a year from its purpose-built Nanjing facility.
Estun’s roots can be traced back to 1993. It was founded in Nanjing, China as a manufacturer of industrial controls and metal forming equipment. Since 2018, the company has quickly grown to become a leader in the domestic robotics industry.
Founded in 1980 and headquartered in Shanghai, China, Jiangsu Hagong Intelligent Robot Co., Ltd. (HGZN) produces industrial robots, manufacturing equipment and smart manufacturing solutions.
In 2019, HGZN formed a joint venture with Hyundai Heavy Industries to establish a robotics factory and research facility in China.
