Hon Hai Precision Industry is aiming to turn its factories in China into fully automated ones, a senior manager in charge of the company’s automation project has reportedly disclosed.

Day Chia-peng, general manager of Hon Hai’s automation technology development committee, was cited by Chinese media as saying the goal of running automated production at his company’s Chinese factories was being achieved in three phases, according to the Central News Agency.

Some of the factories in Shenzhen and Chengzhou have already completed the second phase and are heading toward the third, which is full automation, Day reportedly said while talking to Chinese reporters during a recent technology forum.

For Hon Hai, which trades as Foxconn, the first phase of automation is setting up individual automated work stations for work that employees show no willingness or interest in doing, or work that is too dangerous for them, according to Day.    [FULL  STORY]
