So many times we get problems in our devices. So we send it to its service centers and they send it where the manufacturing process happens. Then they recover it and send it back to us. But this process takes so much time. Because there are thousands of devices, they work on. To make the device ready, it needs more time if there is an absence of machines and technologies.
So we have Robotics that we have made it make hard work easy. The robot can work faster than humans. It never gets tiring. Speed of work is constant here which need in such work. So now so many industries are using robotics to make their work easy. Also, they are in profit and it saves time.
Robotics is very helpful in technology, which is making our work easier. So Apple has an able robot named Daisy. Daisy will disassemble and recycle select used iPhones returned to best buy stores throughout the US. Apple also has plans for the opening of its ‘Material Recovery Lab’ which is dedicated to discovering the future recycling process.
On Thursday Apple announced that they are expanding their global recycling programmes and introduced Daisy. It is a recycling robot which is capable of disassembling 200 iPhones per hour.
Daisy is a 33 feet long machine or a robot that has five arms. It can methodically deconstruct any 15 iPhones models. So US costumers can send their iPhones to be disassembled by Daisy.
How it works
Daisy will disassemble and recycle used iPhones and will be returned to Best Buy stores throughout the US and KPN retailers in the Netherlands. The company said in a statement ahead of earth day falls on April 22. Apple also announced the opening of its ‘Material Recovery Lab’. It is dedicated to discovering future recycling processes in Austin, Texas.
Material Recovery Lab
This lab will work with Apple engineering teams as well as academia. It works to address and propose solutions to today`s industry recycling challenges. As per Lisa Jackson, Apple`s vice president of Environment, Policy and Social Initiative, Advanced recycling must become an important part of the electronics supply chain. Apple is pioneering a new path to help push their industry forward.
Ability of Daisy
Apple`s Daisy is so capable that Apple received nearly one million devices through its programmes. Each Daisy can disassemble 1.2 million devices per year.
In 2018, The company refurbished more than 7.8 million Apple devices. It also helped divert more than 48,000 metric tons of electronic waste from landfills.
Daisy also can
Daisy can take apart iPhones to recover materials such as cobalt, and tin. These are then recycled back into the manufacturing process. Once materials have been recovered by Daisy, they are recycled back into the manufacturing process.
For cobalt, which is a key battery material, Apple sends iPhone batteries recovered by Daisy upstream in its supply chain. Then they are combined with scrap from select manufacturing sites. For the first time cobalt recovered through this process. This process is being used to make brand –new-Apple batteries.
