ABB Robotics Takes It To The Streets

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (BUSINESS WIRE) Robot Manufacturer Continues ”Robotics On The Move – Partnership In Productivity Tour”. ABB Robotics continues “Robotics On The Move, Partnership In Productivity Tour,” a mobile tour to span across North America reaching manufacturing facilities as well as schools and universities. Designed to connect with manufacturers and students alike, the tour encompasses both demonstrations and interactive activities, specifically focusing on robotics technology and trends. With the use of robotics becoming more mainstream, manufacturers must use them to their advantage – keeping ahead of the competition. Successful manufacturers are driven to find ways to lower cost and improve quality and satisfaction, such as automating repetitious tasks and leveraging processes already in place. The unknown truth is that robotics capabilities have been greatly increasing, while their cost and complexity have been decreasing. Any manufacturer interested in staying in business needs to investigate how robotics can help them stay competitive.

Robotics On The Move” will help manufacturers find ways to utilize robotics to their fullest potential to increase their competitiveness in the marketplace. Visitors will learn how other manufacturers have used robotics, how robotics are a key part of lean manufacturing, the improvements of safety with robotics implementations, and how robotics can be a cost-effective way to solve difficult manufacturing challenges.

The mobile exhibit houses an interactive theater and two live robot demonstrations, and is equipped with detailed robot product information. This educational display will engage visitors and clarify myths about robots. With two fully functioning robots onboard, this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will allow manufacturers to get up-close-and-personal with robots normally only found inside facilities.
