Korea has achieved fast and remarkable industrial development. The manufacturing industry is the foundation of the nation’s economic development and a source of high-quality jobs and innovative growth. In the recent rapidly changing environment, the manufacturing industry is at a crossroads between a leap forward and stagnation. With the increasing minimum wage and shorter working hours added to the manpower shortage, the business conditions have been increasingly worsening. NAU Robotics (headed by Lee Jong-ju), a company specialized in robot automation, is supporting the journey of production smartization of the nation’s small and mid-sized manufacturers by developing industrial robots and software optimized for establishment of smart factories. Easy and simple smart factory solutions to supplement the weak points of the existing complicated industrial robots and to be applied immediately to SMEs are attracting attention as a new alternative to factory automation.
