Oh yeah, Apple is coming to town


Recommended Posts

Trump will get Apple to move back to America with fully automated robots - NOT jobs for Americans. China sees the robots bad for their people, so why not take advantage of a Trump free bee & screw Americans instead.

 

Taiwan’s Foxconn, the electronics manufacturing giant that builds Apple‘s iPhone along with dozens of other devices, has recently revealed its plans to eventually replace all the human workers in its Chinese factories with automated robots. This goal is to be accomplished over three phases, with 40,000 robots already in place on production lines, and a reduction of over half the company’s workforce since the release of the iPhone 6 in 2014.

Speaking to DigiTimes, Dai Jia-peng, the general manager of Foxconn’s Automation Technology Development Committee, explains that the first phase involves the use of robots at individual workstations, completing tasks that are too dangerous or the most unpleasant for human workers. The second phase, on the other hand, involves a reduction in the use of robots as individual replacements, instead using fully automated production lines.

 

Eventually this will lead to phase three, which will see not just production lines but entire factories automated, with “only a minimal number” of human workers for tasks including logistics, testing and inspection.

 

Foxconn’s factories in Chengdu, Shenzhen, and Zhengzhou are already at various steps in phases two and three, with up to 10 fully automated production lines in operation across different locations.

It’s obvious this could become a real hurdle to Donald Trump’s promise of getting Apple to move its product manufacturing to the US, but the gradual elimination of human workers at factories that employ almost entire cities could be detrimental to the economies and livelihoods of local Chinese areas.

Why build robotic factories here in the US, where iof something goes horribly wrong and people are maimed or killed or poisoned, Americans would hear about it, when you can build them for less in China where secrecy is a lot easier to provide?

 

Trump is NOT bringing back manufacturing jobs. If he offers incentives, they will be used to pay for automatons to do most of the labor.

^^ now these idiots are screaming that people will be maimed, killed or poisoned by robots. All to blame Trump.

No. Really.

 

I am truly loving watching the leftwing melt down over Trump. This is some hilarious shit.

Is Shitao actually trying to blame Trump for Chinese laborers being replaced by robots?

I don't think so, I am just pointing out Tramp is talking shit and throwing tax breaks about Apple and how these Chinese bastards will still be taking advantage of us.

Goofy, as usual, doesn't get it.

Circuit boards have a lot of lead in them. When you heat led, some of the lead or lead compounds get into the air, and is toxic.

 

Sneakers are assembled in Third World countries because the glue used to stick them together is toxic.

Speaking of 3rd world countries..I live in a very rich city and we have brown outs all the time, just enough time to make you have to reset clocks n shit..so bad it fried a mobo and gfx card on separate occasions. We get major red tide here because of golf club fertilizer run off..so we are catching up with them just in different ways :blink:
