US-designed robots to be produced by Chinese firm

, 2:46 PM IST

Changsha (Hunan) : China being one of the world’s largest market for industrial robots, is all set to set up a factory to produce robots designed by the United States.

Hunan-based Cothink Robotics Tech Co. and Rethink Robotics signed an agreement in Changsha, capital of central China’s Hunan Province, with the city government as a third party, Xinhua news agency reported.

“The products would have a broad market in China, as they can replace human workforce in dangerous work or tasks requiring high precision,” said Scott Eckert, president and CEO of Rethink Robotics. (ANI)
