According to the DOTr, the LTO has acquired new robotic plate-production machines for its license-plate-making facility in Quezon City. The agency says that ‘IDeROBOT’ is capable of manufacturing up to 700 license plates per hour in an efficient and systematic manner. That’s good for 5,600 for each eight-hour shift per day.
Check out the machine in action below:
“Kung dati, manu-mano ang paggawa ng plaka, ngayon high-tech na!” the DOTr’s Facebook post reads. “Ganito kabilis magtrabaho ang pinakabagong IDeROBOT System ng Land Transportation Office (LTO) na naka-base sa plate-making facility ng ahensya sa Quezon City.”
In addition to the new plate-making machines, LTO chief Edgar Galvante also inspected the agency’s new driver’s license self-renewal kiosks. Nice.
Things are really beginning to shape up for motorists. Let’s hope the LTO’s new machines can finally solve the license-plate backlog for good.
