ABB has debuted a robot designed for a wide spectrum of industries for the next-gen of automation.
ABB has debuted a suite of new digital robotics automation products, solutions, and services designed to help customers more fluidly address key trends set to revolutionize the face of manufacturing at the 2020 China International Industry Fair (CIIF), according to a recent press release from ABB.
Called IRB 1300, the company’s new robot has high lifting ability, reach, and path accuracy “in a faster, more compact package,” according to the release.
Automation is more prevalent in manufacturing than ever before — and the overwhelming relevance has pushed ABB to explore the boundaries of digital robotics automation to transform a wide range of industries “with more than a dozen robotic products and solutions all designed to help our customers adapt to a rapidly changing business landscape,” said President Sami Atiya of ABB’s Robotics and Discrete Automation.
“At this year’s CIIF show, we are delighted to showcase our vision for the Hospital of the Future, as well as the Factory of the Future and how we will enable a more flexible approach to the manufacture of the Vehicle of the Future,” added Gu.
As the world’s leading manufacturing industries prepare for the fourth industrial revolution — notably, with examples like Tesla’s ‘alien dreadnought’ — machines truly are adapting to fill the role of human factory workers, in ways physically impossible without a tireless, robot body.
