YuMi® is the result of years of research and development, making collaboration between humans and robots a reality.
But it is also much more.
To meet the flexible and agile production needs required in the consumer electronics industry, and increasingly in other market sectors, ABB has developed a collaborative, dual arm, small parts assembly robot solution that includes flexible hands, parts feeding systems, camera-based part location and state-of-the-art robot control. The soft padded dual arms combined with innovative force sensing technology ensures the complete safety of human co-workers.
YuMi® is a vision of the future. YuMi® will change the way we think about assembly automation. YuMi® is “you and me,” working together to create endless possibilities.
The official market introduction of YuMi® will be at the Hannover Messe on Monday 13th April, 2015
