ABB at the forefront of the 4 th Industrial Revolution

2017-01-03 - ABB Stotz was one of four companies recognized for their industry 4.0 solutions at the 4th Industrial 4.0 Conference held on 30 November and 1 December.

The ABB Stotz factory was given an award in the category of ‘Intelligent Automation” for the development of a fully automated assembly line.

The facility showcases ABB’s technology and manufacturing expertise. It combines seven ABB robots with the Internet of Things (IoT) to optimize efficiency, quality and requested on-time delivery.

Using sensors throughout the production process, data is captured about the products and the machines that make them at every stage so that adjustments can be made to the production process to compensate for aberrant events. Each product is traceable using a unique code and tested before it leaves the factory.
