Using robotics for assembly eliminates repetitive tasks allowing personnel to work on more delicate and demanding tasks where a human touch is required. Robotic automation can also eliminate unwanted repetitive motion injuries and will maximize work cell uptime to increase productivity. You can expect more consistent cycle rates as well as better consistency in parts produced.
ABB YuMi® - IRB 14000
Innovative human – friendly dual arm robot with breakthrough functionality designed to unlock vast global additional automation potential in industry. YuMi® is designed for a new era of automation, for example in small parts assembly, where people and robots work side-by-side on the same tasks. Safety is built into the functionality of the robot itself. YuMi® removes the barriers to collaboration by making fencing and cages a thing of the past.
ABB IRB 1100 and OmniCore™ C90XT Controller
The entire body of the IRB 1100 has an IP67 rating, with all electrical components sealed against contaminants. This makes it resistant to water and provides the robot with complete protection from dust ingress. For manufacturers, the new IP67 protection rating will enable the robot to be used in applications generating substantial dust, water and debris including 3C polishing, wet grinding, buffing and deburring.

ABB Integrated Vision
The ABB vision system represents a true revolution in machine vision featuring powerful vision tools; optics, faster image capture, capability to power and control a range of external lighting and enough input/output capacity for virtually any inspection scenario – all in a compact, industrial IP67 package that makes the system ideal for more applications than ever before.
FlexiBowl® is an innovative flexible parts feeder that is compatible with every robot and vision system. Entire families of parts within 1-250 mm and 1-250 g can be handled by a single FlexiBowl®, replacing a whole set of vibrating bowl feeders. Its lack of dedicated tooling and its easy-to-use and intuitive programming allows quick and multiple product changeovers inside the same work shift.
Festo grippers and gripping technology offer global solutions for a wide range of handling applications. Mechanical grippers are moved inside via an actuator and convert the drive motion into a gripping motion of the gripper jaws via a transmission ratio. This movement of the gripper jaws is referred to as stroke. Depending on the stroke and gripping force, workpieces of different sizes can be gripped.
Mechanical grippers can be controlled either pneumatically or electrically. Festo offers both pneumatic and electric grippers with long strokes. Mechanical grippers also differ with respect to the number of gripper jaws. There are pneumatic grippers with two gripper jaws in parallel, radial and angled gripper design. There are also pneumatic grippers with three gripper jaws.
