El ob jetivo de Apple es construir todos sus dispositivos con materiales reciclables , aunque es cierto que la propia compañía admite que de momento no sabemos cómo ni cuándo lo conseguirá. Lo que está claro es que ‘Daisy’ es un paso importante en en este camino.

On some occasions we have already told you about the recycled Apple robot called ‘Daisy’. It is a robot that replaces an older one called ‘Liam’, and that is capable of dismantling no more and no less than 200 iPhones per hour. Now a new report reveals new details about this curious Apple robot.

Daisy’ was introduced in 2018 as a way to efficiently recover valuable materials stored inside iPhones for proper recycling. Apple wants to make the removal of materials as easy as possible and aims to have the majority of its device parts made from recyclable materials . That’s why Lisa Jackson, Apple’s vice president of environmental, political and social initiatives, gave an interview to Reuters in which she explained in detail the company’s work in this area.

The work of this robot is essential to recover the most valuable parts of the recycled iPhone, Lisa Jackson has revealed how the process works step by step:

Daisy, is approximately 60 feet long and uses a four-step process to remove the battery from an iPhone. First it generates a blast of air at -80 degrees Celsius , then it removes the screws and modules, including the haptic monitor that makes the phone vibrate. The components are then sent to recyclers to have the minerals extracted and refined. Daisy can dismantle 200 iPhones per hour, and in in 2017, the robot in Austin, processed 1 million iPhones .
