Introducing Daisy, Apple’s new recycling robot
27 April 2018
As part of its ongoing recycling effort, Apple introduces Daisy, a robot that can more efficiently disassemble an iPhone to recover valuable materials.
Apple’s newest disassembly robot, Daisy, is the most efficient way to reclaim more of the valuable materials stored in an iPhone. Created through years of R&D, Daisy incorporates revolutionary technology based on Apple’s learnings from Liam, its first disassembly robot launched in 2016. Daisy is made from some of Liam’s parts and is capable of disassembling nine versions of iPhone and sorting their high-quality components for recycling.
Daisy can take apart up to 200 iPhone devices per hour, removing and sorting components, so that Apple can recover materials that traditional recyclers can’t - and at a higher quality.
