  • IOT SOLUTIONS
  • Our lives are touched daily by the Internet. It widens our horizons and improves our capabilities by connecting us to a wider community and their collective knowledge. A similar revolution in industry is connecting intelligent machines and the collective data generated from a growing number of electronic sensors. We are ‘seeing, hearing, and feeling’ our industrial processes like never before and this empowers the decisions we make to optimize performance. This revolution allows us to operate machines more safely, with greater efficiency, and with lower environmental impact, not just individually, but as complete systems, working in harmony to enhance power and productivity for a better world. For over a decade ABB has been working to develop and enhance process control systems, communications solutions, sensors and software for the Internet of Things, Services and People (IoTSP). These technologies enable their customers in industries, utilities and infrastructure to analyze their data more intelligently, optimize their operations, boost their productivity, and their flexibility. ABB is advancing the IoTSP by helping their customers develop their existing technologies, while keeping sight of our enduring commitment to safety, reliability, cyber security and Data Privacy.

  • CASE STUDIES
  • ABB: Time to Market, Time to Volume, Time to Money
    Time is essential when it comes to introducing new products to the market. Many clients need to mass manufacture a product in a very short time. Their requirements put Foxconn under substantial pressure.
    ABB: System 800xA at Indian Cement Plants
    Chettinad Cement recognized that further efficiencies could be achieved in its cement manufacturing process. It looked to investing in comprehensive operational and control technologies to manage and derive productivity and energy efficiency gains from the assets on Line 2, their second plant in India.
    ABB: Plastic Spoons Case study: Injection Moulding
    In order to meet customer expectations by supplying a wide variety of packaging units, from 36 to 1000 spoons per package, a new production and packaging line needed to be built. DeSter wanted to achieve higher production capacity, lower cycle time and a high degree of operator friendliness with this new production line.
  • HARDWARE
  • ABB: IRB 140 Robot
    IRB 140 industrial robot is a six axis multipurpose robot that handles payload of 6 kg, with long reach (810 mm). The IRB 140 can be floor mounted, inverted or on the wall in any angle. Available as Standard, Foundry Plus 2, Clean Room and Wash versions, all mechanical arms completely IP67 protected, making IRB 140 easy to integrate in and suitable for a variety of applications. Uniquely extended radius of working area due to bend-back mechanism of upper arm, axis 1 rotation of 360 degrees and flexible mounting capabilities.IRB 140 Foundry Plus 2 and Wash versions are suitable for operating in extreme foundry environments and other harsh environments with high requirements for corrosion resistance and tightness. In addition to the IP67 protection, excellent surface treatment makes the robot high-pressure steam washable. The white-finish Clean Room version meets clean room class 10 regulations, making it especially suited for environments with stringent cleanliness standards.
    ABB: IRB 6700 - Robot for Harsh Environments
    A new world of possibilities opens up with ABB’s new IRB 6600 robot family. It comes in several versions, with different lengths of the arm and matching handling capacities.Upper arm extenders and different wrist modules will allow customization to each process. As the robot can bend fully backwards, the working range is greatly extended and the robot fits well into dense production lines. Typical application areas are spot welding, material handling, and machine tending. A built-in Service Information System monitors the motion and load of the machine and optimizes service requirements by itselfA range of software products have been added – all falling under the umbrella designation of Active Safety – to protect not only personnel in the unlikely event of an accident, but also the robot itself.Collision detection, which reduces the collision force substantially, is especially useful on robots handling high payloads.An Electronically Stabilized Path will ensure thatthe robot will maintain its planned path to its best capability considering acceleration, drag, gravity and inertia. This feature is secured through our TrueMove.
    ABB: Compact Material Handling Robots
    The IRB 4400 is a compact robot that can handle loads up to 60 kg.Exceptional all-round capabilities and stiffness make IRB 4400 perfectly matched for variety of applications where accuracy, speed rigidity and flexibility are important.
  • SOFTWARE
  • ABB: RobotStudio
    Offline programming is the best way to maximize return on investment for robot systems. ABB's simulation and offline programming software, RobotStudio, allows robot programming to be done on a PC in the office without shutting down production.RobotStudio provides the tools to increase the profitability of your robot system by letting you perform tasks such as training, programming, and optimization without disturbing production.
    ABB: Knowledge Manager
    To manage the huge quantity of data from your process Knowledge Manager processes it to present you with only the relevant information needed at that moment in time. The information is always available to you when and where ever you may need it.The database stores data over many years according to the requirements of your plant or local authorities. It also provides analytical insight to identify best practices that can then be used to improve your overall operation.
    ABB: System 800xA
    System 800xA is not only a DCS (Distributed Control System) it’s also an Electrical Control System, a Safety system and a collaboration enabler with the capacity to improve engineering efficiency, operator performance and asset utilization.
