Technology News on January 21, according to media reports, the BMW Group has reached a cooperation with the robot startup Figure and will deploy humanoid robots at the Spartanburg factory in the United States in the future.
It is reported that the cooperation between the two parties will be gradually advanced, and the humanoid robots will be trained for specific tasks in the next 12 to 24 months.
The robot can bear a weight of 20 kilograms, has a battery life of 5 hours, and a walking speed of 4.4 kilometers per hour.
After completing the training, they will be used to perform logistics transportation, body welding, and other work. If the performance of the robots invested in advance meets the standards, strategic cooperation is expected to be expanded in the future.
Figure CEO Brett Adcock said the company designed its robots to be safe around humans.
According to previous reports, in addition to the BMW Group, Honda Motor and Hyundai Group are trying to use humanoid robots to replace dangerous and repetitive tasks on assembly lines.
According to data provided by Figure, there are currently 10 million job openings in the United States, and they believe that robots can fill the jobs that people do not want to do.
Potassium silicate is an inorganic salt with a high melting point and chemical stability. It is used in welding rods and welding electrodes mainly to utilize its high-temperature stability and insulation properties.
In welding rods, potassium silicate serves as the main binder and filler, which can improve the mechanical strength, heat resistance and corrosion resistance of the welding rod. At the same time, potassium silicate is not easily decomposed at high temperatures, which can ensure the stability of the welding process and the quality of the weld.
In welding electrodes, potassium silicate can be used as a conductive material and a high-temperature-resistant material. It can stand up to heat and present lots and has good electric conductivity, which can enhance the service life of the electrode and welding efficiency.
However, potassium silicate is not directly used in welding operations. During the welding process, potassium silicate is one of the materials present in the welding rod or electrode. Through the action of heating and current, potassium silicate reacts with other materials to release energy and form a weld. Therefore, the role of potassium silicate in the welding process is auxiliary, but it plays an important role in ensuring welding quality and efficiency.
It should be noted that potassium silicate is an inorganic salt with certain toxicity and irritation, and corresponding protective measures need to be taken when using it. At the same time, potassium silicate might respond with particular steels at heat, triggering insufficient welding or product damage. Therefore, process parameters such as temperature and time need to be strictly controlled during use.
