How does utilization of old iPhone happen? Apple opened all secrets


In 2016 Apple for the first time showed the Liam robot who disassembles the old and broken iPhones for the subsequent their processing. This initiative was dictated by care of the environment. But on it Apple did not stop - in 2018 the company presented the improved its option - the Daisy robot. But how exactly there is a process of utilization of old devices? In honor of the coming Earth Day (on April 22), Apple decided to lift the veil a little.

is In the city of Austin, State of Texas secret laboratory of "Material Recovery" of 9000 square feet. Exactly there is all process of utilization of iPhone - from direct dismantling prior to a procedure of processing. The main pride of factory - the advanced Daisy robot.

the Robotic mechanism looks really impressively - length of the robot of nearly 10 meters, and weight is several tons. The main objective of Daisy consists in dismantling of iPhone and further sorting of the received components, - small screws, screens, modules of cameras, metal parts. When everything is sorted, some parts can be reused, and something can just be melted.

the Robot is capable to cope with any modern Apple smartphone: since iPhone 5 and finishing with the flagman iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max models. In total in an hour (!) of Daisy it is capable to disassemble more than 200 iPhones.

would Be strange if it would be possible to call process of processing simple and easy. Alas, but it far not so - each iPhone passes through several stages: The first stage - the smartphone gets on the conveyer belt. From this point the fate of iPhone is predetermined. The second stage - dismantling of the screen. With a jewelry accuracy the robot aims and removes the display from the device. As a rule, all process takes only a few seconds. The third stage - having got access to iPhone interiors, the robotic mechanism starts direct dismantling: screws are untwisted, the accumulator is removed. In the course of work of Daisy can use liquid nitrogen, for example in order that quickly and easily to take the device battery which is tightly pasted to the case iPhone. After removal of screws, the robot starts dismantling of the main components: cameras, sensors, loudspeakers, small logical fees. Finally, the case of the device goes to processing. And all other components undergo careful sorting and testing. By the way, you will also be able to hand over the old iPhone for processing. And it is possible to use the program of utilization even in Russia - for this purpose to address appropriate section on the website of Apple enough.

of Apple developed Daisy not just like that - it is one of plans of Apple for transition to environmentally friendly production. In the annual report on preservation of the environment the company stated that it is going to switch to completely processed materials. The foundation is already laid - cases new MacBook Air and Mac Mini are created entirely from the processed aluminum. <
