Robots Rising in India Factories

Over 400 robots work in Hyundai’s Sriperumbudur factory. The largest car exporter from India has invested Rs 6 billion ($93.5 million) since 2010 in its plant, Rediff reported. Some tasks like welding and painting are fully automated but Hyundai says automation is lower in others, like 10% in the assembly shop. Having a few hundred robots in a car factory is not uncommon. Ford’s newly inaugurated Sanand plant in Gujarat has 437 robots. The level of plant automation is 30% but it is 95% in the body shop. The Tata Motors plant in Sanand making the Nano, touted as the world’s cheapest car, uses close to 100 robots. Maruti Suzuki, has more than 1,000 robots.
