2020 Robot World exhibition displays service and industrial robots Updated: 2020-10-29 10:04:12 KST

By just inserting the ingredients, a robot makes a gourmet meal.
A pasta dish is made within just a few minutes and all from the press of a button.
Once the recipe is ready, this robot can automatically make a whole host of other dishes too.
Hosted by the Korean Robot Industry Association, 700 booths from 200 companies are lined up at Kintex in Goyang, Gyeonggi-do Province, for this year's Robot World Exhibition.
Industrial robots, service robots, and robot components are on display while another makes coffee all by itself.

"This robot could soon be a common sight in restaurants and cafes. When a person orders coffee from this machine, instead of a person making the drink, the robot does all the work."

A manager of the company which manufacturers these robots says that, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a bright future awaits the robotics engineering industry.

"COVID-19 has led to the trend of people trying to make as little contact with others as possible. Through this transition, robots can provide all kinds of different services to humans."

Meanwhile, industrial robots can collaborate with humans to accelerate the manufacturing processes for a lot of companies.
One company has designed robots that can be used to make electronic components and biotech products more efficiently.

"With depleting labor forces, there is high demand for automations at many companies. I believe our small-and-medium-sized robots here can help in the automation process."

A total of 35-thousand buyers will be participating in 2020 Robot World Exhibition, of them one-thousand are from overseas.
The event will run for four days until Saturday.
