Agility Robotics, the pioneering company behind the creation of the bipedal robot Digit, is expanding its operations with the opening of a new robot manufacturing facility called RoboFab. Located in Salem, Oregon, the 70,000-square-foot facility has the capacity to produce over 10,000 robots annually.
The construction of RoboFab began last year, and it is slated to start operating later this year. Once fully operational, the facility will employ more than 500 workers, in addition to the employees at Agility Robotics’ other locations. This expansion reinforces the company’s commitment to revolutionizing the robotics industry.
Digit, the bipedal robot developed by Agility Robotics, will play an integral role within the new facility. The robot will perform tasks such as moving, loading and unloading totes, in a similar capacity to its role at Agility’s customer sites. This demonstrates the versatility and agility of Digit, showcasing its ability to adapt to different environments and perform a variety of tasks.
Agility Robotics is co-headquartered in Corvallis, Oregon, and Pittsburgh, and has offices in Palo Alto, California. The company has been at the forefront of developing cutting-edge robotics technology, with Digit being one of its flagship products. With the opening of RoboFab, Agility Robotics is poised to significantly increase the production of Digit robots, meeting the growing demand for advanced robotic solutions across industries.
This significant expansion will not only accelerate Agility Robotics’ growth but will also contribute to the overall advancement of robotics technology. The increased production capacity will enable more organizations to leverage the capabilities of Digit, leading to enhanced efficiency and productivity in various sectors.
