ABB Robotics – Automatica 2022: ABB Robotics unveils the next generation of flexible automation

June 21 2022

To put the muse for the plant of the long run, ABB launched two transformational merchandise below the brand new OmniVance model at Automatica 2022: OmniVance FlexArc Compact Cell and OmniVance Machining Cell and Software program.

“We face an unprecedented scarcity of expert labor mixed with international uncertainty and altering client calls for,” stated Marc Segura ABB Head of Robotics.

“ABB’s robotics and software program options are responding to those international developments as we ship smarter, extra adaptive, extra cell, and extra user-friendly know-how to arrange prospects for the long run.”

Constructed with robots, controllers, software program and different peripheral elements, OmniVance software cells are modular, ready-to-deploy options that may be simply built-in into manufacturing traces. With the power to assist smaller batches, it meets the rising demand for low quantity, excessive combine manufacturing options whereas responding shortly to altering manufacturing wants.

Each merchandise are a part of ABB’s technique to supply versatile manufacturing cells and software program that may shortly change between totally different product varieties and seamlessly combine with Autonomous Cellular Robots (AMR).

ABB’s stand at Automatica (Sales space 231 in Corridor B5) showcases OnmniVance FlexArc Compact and OmniVance Machining Cell and Machining Software program by way of movies and interactive digital excursions—together with reside performances that includes the OmniVance FlexLoader M, together with an autonomous cell robotic (AMR).

The ABB sales space additionally options demonstrations from the cobot suite: the CRB 15000 GoFa collaborative robotic and the CRB 1100 SWIFTI collaborative industrial robotic, in addition to the most recent software program improvements, together with RobotStudio with new augmented actuality and digital actuality functionality.

The OmniVance model from ABB brings collectively all standardized software cells. Backed by greater than 50 years of expertise in robotic automation, OmniVance cells come outfitted with new software program that accelerates integration whereas offering higher flexibility and effectivity,” added Segura.

The OmniVance FlexArc Compact saves house and supplies higher flexibility for small-volume welding purposes in its class. The cell can be simply built-in with autonomous cell robots, whereas as much as 4 mounted robots may be added to the cell to extend manufacturing capability with out having to vary its construction. Learn the complete press launch right here.

The OmniVance reducing and curing cell supplies elevated flexibility and ease for a variety of purposes together with sanding, sprucing, reducing and floor ending. Able to performing as much as eight totally different purposes in a single cell, the brand new know-how can run as much as 20,000 hours in harsh circumstances with out the necessity for upkeep. The brand new driver, which reduces setup time by 92 %, is the primary in the marketplace to supply automated calibration and monitor tuning in a single device, lowering calibration time to 10 minutes. See the complete press launch right here.

OmniVance FlexLoader M.

The OmniVance FlexLoader M takes heart stage on Automatica’s ABB platform, and is built-in with an AMR machine tilting answer. Contained in the cell, components detected utilizing AI-enabled imaginative and prescient are recognized and processed by the IRB 2600 robotic. The display screen exhibits how autonomous cell robots provide new potentialities to extend pace, flexibility and productiveness in manufacturing processes by enabling components to be moved wherever and at any time when they’re wanted.


Guests to the pavilion could have the chance to strive the GoFa – ABB’s easy and versatile cubot to automate a variety of purposes with a great deal of as much as 5kg, from meeting to machine care and packaging. Providing the simplicity of two-button programming and ABB’s Wizard Simple Programming, GoFa may be deployed by anybody at any stage of expertise, together with first-time customers.

The primary demo on the stand will present how the performance can be utilized to arrange and maintain the fixture, whereas the second demo will characteristic an arc welding app the place guests can use the preliminary programming to create their very own welding paths. GoFa energy, choice and place management may also be demonstrated utilizing ABB’s AsyCube performance bundle – a versatile bot-based feeding answer.


ABB’s CRB 1100 SWIFTI collaborative industrial robotic can be proven working alongside an IRB 1300 industrial robotic in a watch meeting software, dealing with meeting and screw-unloading duties. Working collectively, the 2 robots will exhibit how automating repetitive and mundane duties can rework employee productiveness. Utilizing ABB’s collaborative SafeMove safety software program, SWIFTI combines the excessive pace and accuracy of an industrial robotic with the advantages of fenceless set up and workspace sharing with human operators.


A devoted space in Sales space 231 that includes each VR and AR demos options on ABB’s RobotStudio/AR viewer app, highlighting how advances in software program are serving to to simplify programming and operating robots. Demos will present how instruments can be utilized to design, check and optimize whole manufacturing cells in a digital world, to save lots of time and disruption.
Guests may uncover extra about ABB’s full vary of robotic options, on the ABB Robotics Digital Showroom, through 5 interactive contact screens positioned across the stand.

To make sure that non-attendants don’t miss out, ABB has created a digital commerce honest portal over right herepermitting on-line guests to look at a digital tour of a sales space on June 22 from 16:00 to 16:15 CET (English) or 16:30 – 16:45 CET (German), or on request afterwards, and guide One-on-one conferences with ABB specialists.
