According to Andrea Rossi, he is now working with the robots he plans to use for the mass production of E-Cat plants.
At the beginning of February Rossi stated on the Journal of Nuclear Physics that they were “studying the robots” and I asked him on February 3 if they had robots in the lab that they were working with. He said at the time that they did not have them, but they did have “all their characteristics.”
Today I submitted another question and got this response.

How is the work with the robotics progressing? Have you started programming them yet? If not, when do you expect to do so?

If they have actually started programming the robots, that sounds like good progress. Rossi has said in the past that he is working with ABB robots which are top of the line for industrial applications. Maybe reaching this step is part of the “exponential progress” Rossi has referred to; however I would imagine that it would sill take a lot of time and extensive testing to get the production process perfected. We are still only in February, and I know Rossi’s goal is still to get production going this year, I don’t know if that is realistic, but it would be a remarkable achievement if he does.
