    ABB Robotics - Electric Motor Manufacturing at Baldor

    Published on Nov 18, 2013

    For Baldor Electric Company (a member of the ABB Group), robots are part of a strategy to stay close to their customers and retain good employees by keeping manufacturing in the US and taking humans out of harm's way.

    The robots are working in the Southwestern Die Casting facility—which is tasked with producing all the aluminum castings for Baldor's motors. Foundry work is dirty and dangerous, which lends itself well to robotic automation. And just down the road from Southwestern Die in Fort Smith, Baldor's newest winding facility, robots also come into play during the incredibly intricate and complex step of winding copper coils.

    "Some people might think that because ABB and Baldor are the same company now we get special treatment," says Jed Reinhard, Manager of Engineering and Maintenance for the Southwestern Die Casting facility." But the reality is that we were using ABB robots long before the acquisition and we are buying more today for the same reasons we always have: they are reliable and ABB provides great customer service—something we also value as a core mission at Baldor."

    ABB Robotics - FlexLean Flexible Automotive Body Assembly Part 1

    Published on Nov 23, 2013

    Over the past decade the auto industry has changed at a blistering pace. Where once it was common to build one car on one line, manufacturers are now moving to a flexible production concept where multiple cars can be produced on the same line. The new GateFramer robotic car body framing system builds on ABB's nearly 20 years of framing experience by providing the industry with the flexible, accurate, expandable and fast solution that today's car manufacturers demand—resulting in less investment over the lifetime of the system.

    ABB Robotics - Packing Beer Bottles with Refurbished Robots

    Published on Dec 5, 2013

    The Athenian Brewery in Athens, Greece uses ABB robots to pack 1.6 million bottles of beer a day. After 10 years of constant use they decided they needed to replace their hard working robots. In order to keep costs down they chose to install refurbished versions of the same robot model.

    The benefits of choosing refurbished robots from ABB include not needing to retool or reprogram, no system reconfiguration, and minimised loss of production.

    ABB Robotics - Milling Sculpture in Natural Stone

    Published on Dec 17, 2013

    In the last few years Marmi e Graniti d'Italia (MGI), a leading Italian supplier of natural stone, has experimented with innovation and technology for the stone industry. One of the latest frontiers in the field is definitely the interaction between ABB robots and natural stone.

    Using the creation of a replica of artist Amedeo Modigliani's infamous "HEAD" sculpture in white granite, MGI explored the application of a robotic milling system to evaluate whether industrial robots are capable of the demands and challenges that processing stone requires.

    The results of the experiment surpassed all expectations offering a quality of cut comparable to CNC machinery. The possibility of perfecting the approach, integrating milling and polishing, is currently being explored in collaboration with ABB integrator T&D Robotics.

    ABB Robotics - Applying polyester resin to granite slabs

    Published on Dec 18, 2013

    In marble polishing, the use of polyester resin to fill and reinforce the slabs has been an accepted solution for over 50 years. Resin fillers are mainly used for aesthetic effects and to avoid open holes in the surface of the material.

    The more fragile marbles have also a reinforced backing support, usually in a form of a fiberglass mesh. In this process, the main material used with the net is a polyester resin.

    Now robot itegrator T&D Robotics in Italy have fully automated this process using ABB robots. Benefits include reduced working area, lower energy costs & improved safety levels.

    ABB Robotics - Spot Welding at Volvo (with Integrated Dress Packs)

    Published on Jan 17, 2014

    Exterior cables on robots suffer from wear & tear and can lead to downtime. To address this issue Volvo, working closely with ABB, have equipped their Spot Welding robots with Integrated Dress Packs. The solution enhances cable & hose lifecycles, reduces production costs & downtime, and facilitates shorter start-up times.
