ABB announced a new, intelligent design approach to its robotic solution portfolio at automatica 2018, which will provide customers more flexibility and better return on investment in automation. The new approach will allow the portfolio to be easily tailored to a wider range of needs, both for today’s dynamic markets and future opportunities.

ABB’s first offerings under this groundbreaking approach include a new single-arm YuMi robot and OmniCore™, an entirely new robot controller family. Both are designed to increase manufacturing flexibility through human robot collaboration while unlocking the full potential of the digital factory. The ABB Ability™ offering and Connected Services are both built into the new controller, as well as ABB’s SafeMove2 safety software solution, which can convert any connected industrial robot into a collaborative one.

ABB continues to build on its leadership in digital with a new virtual meeting tool for its leading RobotStudio® virtual commissioning and simulation software and new Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics (CMD) application preview for its ABB Ability™ Connected Services. The CMD uses a machine learning-based advanced algorithm to detect behavioral anomalies in large robot populations and provide predictive maintenance and optimization guidance.

OmniCore™, an entirely new robot controller.Per Vegard Nerseth, Managing Director of Robotics for ABB, added “Our customers are increasingly interested in exploring the potential of collaborative automation and digital solutions to improve their flexibility and performance. At the same time, they increasingly need purposeful, tailored solutions for unique applications. We are transforming our portfolio to meet this need today, and – more importantly – for tomorrow. Today we witness the dawn of a new era in robotics.”

ABB will present a number of such industry-focused, purposeful solutions at automatica, especially for the important automobile manufacturing markets.

  • ABB will present a number of such industry-focused, purposeful solutions at automatica, especially for the important automobile manufacturing markets.The paint shop is one of the most expensive parts of automotive production. One of the highlights of ABB’s stand will be a new ABB Ability™ Connected Atomizer, the world’s leading sensor-equipped paint atomizer that can use real-time data to optimize the automotive painting process while the paint is being applied, which can eliminate costly touch-ups and downtime.
  • ABB will also showcase a new final trim and assembly solution developed in cooperation with Volkswagen AG that uses advanced vision guidance and SafeMove2 software to automate the assembly of a car door. Without collaborative automation and digital technologies, this task would have been impossible to automate without first stopping the vehicles from moving through the factory.
  • In addition to automotive, the ABB booth will also feature new robotics solutions to help fulfillment centers and warehouses manage the soaring volumes and increased complexity of today’s intralogistics. An ABB eFulfillment solution can sort and stack products being prepared for shipment with greater flexibility and a smaller footprint than traditional, expensive tower sequencing systems.
