One would think that it takes a reasonable amount of time to manufacture a single PS4 console. A recent report by the Nikkei Asian Review has revealed that Sony’s PlayStation manufacturing plant in Japan is capable of assembling a new PS4 every 30 seconds—all thanks to 26 autonomous robots.

The fact that Sony is able to fully assemble a PS4 console every 30 seconds, with minimal human resource is quite impressive. According to the report, only 4 humans are directly involved in the assembly process; two are responsible for placing motherboards onto the assembly line while the rest are in charge of packing the console upon completion.

Interestingly, Sony is apparently using Mitsubishi Electric’s robots for the PS4 assembly in its manufacturing plant. For those wondering, the nearly all-automated manufacturing plant in question is located in Kisarazu, Japan.

Those aside, it’s amazing to see just how fast Sony is able to assemble a brand new console with the help of robots. It will be very likely that the same method will be used to assemble the upcoming PlayStation 5 as well. Should this be the case, then gamers shouldn’t worry too much about stock being unavailable for long periods of time—assuming nothing goes wrong in the supply chain.
