ABB Inc.’s YuMi dual-arm collaborative robot can operate closely with humans due to its construction, and is designed to meet the production needs of small parts assembly and material handling applications.

Simplification is the capability of ABB robots to be integrated with the technology and control of all the major welding power supply and component manufacturers, the company says. Ethernet connections between the robot and power source place the control of all welding process components on to the ABB Teach Pendant, simplifying the control and programming of the entire system.

Digitalization is fundamental to ABB’s robotic inspection system with integrated 3D vision, which utilizes digital scans to detect defects on manufactured parts with a high level of accuracy. According to the company, the digitalization inherent to ABB Ability monitors the status of welding system components, delivering information to drive decisions that help manufacturers increase operational performance along the manufacturing value chain.
