    ABB Robotics - Dual Arm Concept Robot

    Published on May 3, 2012

    The concept robot was created in response to requests from ABB Robotics' existing customer base to develop robotic solutions for manufacturing environments in which humans and robots would be able to work together. This 14-axis, dual arm robot is the initial output from ABB Corporate Research's initiative for industries requiring new and innovative solutions for their small part assembly operations.

    As a result of the positive reaction to this initial effort, ABB is now engaged in the further development of this concept. The robot is also part of a research program aimed at evaluating new robotic solutions for modern manufacturing concepts (FP7 Rosetta).

    There are no immediate plans by ABB Robotics to introduce the robot as a commercial product, however, should you wish to discuss your robotics requirements for small part assembly operations, we would be interested in hearing from you.

    ABB Robotics - Dual Arm Concept Robot at iREX 2013

    Published on Nov 6, 2013

    At iREX 2013 ABB Robotics took the opportunity to show a vision of what dynamic small parts assembly solution could look like in the real-world by presenting just one of the development projects for our Dual Arm Concept prototype robot. The cell on display has been operating in an actual manufacturing environment for many weeks and has assembled tens of thousands of eStop switches for one of our ABB Low Voltage businesses.

    ABB Robotics - YuMi, the ABB Dual Arm Robot at Automatica 2014

    Published on Jun 7, 2014

    The new era of robotic co-workers is here. YuMi makes collaboration between humans and robots a reality.

    At ABB Robotics we know that collaboration between humans and robots is going to be a large part of the future, especially when it comes to assembly of small parts and the electronics industry. At this year's Automatica we assembled more than 3,000 switches per day live at the show in a demonstration of real-life human-robot collaboration.

    YuMi is the result of years of research and development, making collaboration between humans and robots a reality. But it is also much more.

    YuMi is a vision of the future. YuMi will change the way
    we think about assembly automation. YuMi is “you and me,”
    working together to create endless possibilities.
    Our Dual Arm Concept Robot represents a forthcoming product from ABB that is set to fundamentally change how the world approaches manufacturing and assembly of small parts.

    Come along with us as we take you into this world of the future.

    ABB Robotics - YuMi: creating an automated future together

    Published on Apr 6, 2015

    Wordwide introduction next week!

    Come see YuMi live and in person at its worldwide debut during Hannover Fair 2015, in Hannover, Germany from April 13-17, Hall 11 Booth A35.

    With the introduction of YuMi, the world’s first truly collaborative dual-arm industrial robot, ABB Robotics is once again pushing the boundaries of what robotic automation will look like in the future and how it will fundamentally alter the types of industrial processes that can be automated with robots.

    A play on words, YuMi signifies “you” and “me” creating an automated future together. This groundbreaking solution is the result of years of research and development, heralding a new era of robotic coworkers that are able to work side-by-side on the same tasks as humans while still ensuring the safety of those around it.

    Few production arenas are changing as quickly as small parts assembly. The electronics industry, in particular, has seen demand skyrocket past the supply of skilled labor. As conventional assembly methods diminish in value, manufacturers are finding it strategically and economically imperative to invest in new solutions.

    While YuMi was specifically designed to meet the flexible and agile production needs required in the consumer electronics industry, it has equal application in any small parts assembly environment thanks to its dual arms, flexible hands, universal parts feeding system, camera-based part location, lead-through programming, and state-of-the-art precise motion control.
