Mitsubishi's Dexterous Robots for Factory Automation

I think not only will the cost of production in China going up cause a boost in robotics, but the quality of production from low cost countries it atrousious (sp?).  If it comes from China it will be in the trash sooner than later.  One thing I believe most manufacturers are starting to come to grips with is you have to manage the quality of anything coming from a low cost country.  And in order to do that properly you often have to spend more money in the states than you saved by going over seas.  It's too bad the accounting and upper management world can't see that.

Yet another task that can be performed more effectively by a robot. The one feature that probably can't be seen here is the speed. While attending Pack Expo last year, I was amazed by the speed of the robots, which often did tasks that had previously been reserved for humans.

From the above article it seems that the manufacturing segment has a need for increased speed, lifting capacity, service life and robot to robot coordination (all of which improve productivity and profitability).

With wages in some low-cost regions like China now creeping upwards, I wonder if there will be a slight sales increase in robotics due to some manufacturers now investing in the replacement of human workers with robots.
