ABB launches autonomous mobile robot portfolio with new brand identity
Following the acquisition of ASTI, the world’s leading AMR manufacturer, in 2021, ABB launches autonomous mobility with a new brand imagerobotseries. Since its inclusion in the AMR product portfolio, ABB has become the only company in the industry that can provide complete solutions for robotics, autonomous mobile Robots and machine automation.
When businesses are looking for a range of robotics solutions to help them increase efficiency, flexibility and adaptability, we are the company that can provide a complete portfolio of robotics, autonomous mobile robots and machine automation solutions. This is an inflection point for our customers, who can get everything they need to address the opportunities and opportunities created by the prevalence of personalized consumption, labor shortages and supply chain disruptions with just one partner. challenge. The update of the brand image of ABB’s autonomous mobile robots just emphasizes the convenience and advantages of our ability to provide customers with comprehensive solutions.
ASTI’s solutions have now been re-skinned, named and integrated into ABB’s product portfolio as the Flexley™ product family, which stands for operational flexibility offered by autonomous mobile robots. The first AMR models to be released are the Flexley Tug and Flexley Mover, covering applications including towing, trolley transport up to 2000kg, and lifting and transport of racks, cases and pallets up to 1500kg.
Building on ASTI’s use of laser-based 2D SLAM navigation, future ABB autonomous mobile robots will also benefit from Sevensense’s (Swiss startup, ABB partner) pioneering VSLAM technology, which enables mobile robots to navigate complex dynamic environments .This unique technology opens up new possibilities for flexible manufacturing – artificial intelligence makes ABB’s AMR like itsrobotic armJust as autonomous, while making work more efficient and safer for people.
Verónica Pascual, Global Head of Autonomous Mobile Robotics at ABB Robotics, said,The market for autonomous mobile robots is set to grow significantly, with an estimated annual growth rate of approximately 24%* between 2021 and 2028. The integration of ASTI’s range of autonomous mobile robots, along with the establishment of our global manufacturing and support network, means we are well positioned to handle this growth, offering our customers new ways to solve their supply chain challenges and meet electronic The need for greater flexibility and speed as business continues to grow.
ABB has provided autonomous mobile robot solutions to UK-based strategic partner Expert Technology Group, providing a complete assembly line based on autonomous mobile robots to a start-up technology company producing drive systems for electric vehicles. Autonomous mobile robots are responsible for transporting products between Robotic automation cells and manual assembly stations. The entire automation solution uses ABB robots, vision function packages and autonomous mobile robots working together.
