ABB Robotics to exhibit at Automate 2013 in Chicago

2013-01-15 - Demonstations will feature a multi-robot material handling system and a 10-axis long reach welding robot. Also highlight will be advanced software developments that continue ABB’s mission to make robot systems easier to program and operate
AUBURN HILLS, Michigan, USA. ABB Robotics is exhibiting 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, January 21-24 at McCormick Place in Chicago (Booth # 454).

The material handling demos accentuate ABB’s complete line of packaging robots, from individual product handling robots to those that handle full layer depalletizing. The 10-axis robot features the precisely coordinated multi-axis motion provided by ABB’s IRC5 Controller and MultiMove software.

Also on display are 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 is displaying an array of electronic machine safety components and mechanical interlock switches.
