ABB Robotics will feature a portfolio of advanced technology robotic picking, packing and palletizing demonstrations at Pack Expo 2015, Sept. 28–30 at the Las Vegas Convention Center (Booth # C-5228), including the first public North American appearance of YuMi.
According to ABB, YuMi is the world’s first truly collaborative dual-arm industrial robot that ABB introduced earlier this year.
YuMi can operate in close collaboration with humans due to its inherently safe design. It has a lightweight, yet rigid magnesium skeleton covered with a floating plastic casing, wrapped in soft padding to absorb impacts. YuMi is also compact, with human-like dimensions and movements, making human coworkers safe and comfortable.
ABB Robotics is a provider of packaging automation systems, offering a complete range of robots with payloads from 0.5 kg to 800 kg, simplified programming software, peripheral equipment and function packages to handle a variety of applications across all industries.
