See how robots are transforming manufacturing at MACH 2018

07 April 2018

Visitors to ABB’s stand at MACH 2018 (Birmingham NEC, 9 – 13 April) will be able to see how the latest advances in robotic automation can help them find new ways to transform their productivity and efficiency.

Exhibits at Stand H19-400 will include ABB’s new machine tending robots, demonstrations of robotic inspection and welding systems, plus collaborative software and technology that enables robots and people to work side-by-side.

ogether, the displays will show how the flexibility and efficiency of robots can make manufacturing companies more competitive and how robot technology can be used to help create the smart factories of the future. 

“With companies facing an increasingly tough competitive environment, the need to find ways to make things faster, better and at a lower cost is becoming ever more important,” says Mike Wilson, General Industry Sales and Marketing Manager ABB Robotics UK and Ireland. “Robotic automation is providing an answer to these challenges. Highly adaptable and increasingly simple to install, operate and maintain, robots can help companies create a smarter, more responsive manufacturing operation that can help them unlock new levels of efficiency and productivity.”

With MACH attracting many students and budding engineers, ABB will also be participating in the exhibition’s educational stand at H17-367. Young visitors will be able to try out a virtual reality demonstration built around RobotStudio, ABB’s offline programming software and try their luck at competing against a robot in a simulated production challenge. 

“Giving students access to the latest industrial technologies enables them to acquire the skills needed to utilise them before they enter the workplace,” says Wilson. “Our participation on the educational stand is just one part of our broader range of activities aimed at helping to find and support the manufacturing engineers of tomorrow.”
