ABB, the pioneering technology leader, today announced the installation of three YuMi robots on a new production line at its electrification products plant in Ede, the Netherlands.
Industrial robots usually operate in safety zones and are used for heavy, highly hazardous and repetitive tasks in aerospace, automotive assembly, handling, painting, coating and other applications. Conventional industrial robots are typically gigantic and bulky, they occupy a large area and the programming processes are usually time-consuming.
FANUC now offers three small, Collaborative Robots as part of its large industrial robot portfolio: CR-4iA, CR-7iA and the CR-7iA/L. These new additions to the range step into the footsteps of the larger CR-35iA green coloured Collaborative Robot, which still remains the strongest of its kind with a payload of 35kg.
