ABB Robotics Exhibit at Automate 2013 in Chicago
ABB Robotics exhibited two fully operational material handling cells, and a 10-axis long reach welding system featuring one robot attached to the arm of another at Automate 2013, held Jan. 21-24 at McCormick Place in Chicago (Booth # 454).
The material handling demos accentuate ABB's line of packaging robots, from individual product handling robots to those that handle full layer depalletizing. The 10-axis robot features the coordinated multi-axis motion provided by ABB's IRC5 Controller and MultiMove software.
Also displayed were the most recent results of ABB's ongoing mission to develop robotic software that reduce programming complexity and create an intuitive human machine interface for production operation - highlighted by the RobotStudio Palletizing PowerPac, PalletPack 460 and PickMaster3 products. ABB JOKAB SAFETY displayed an array of electronic machine safety components and mechanical interlock switches.
