In 2015 ABB introduced YuMi, the world’s first truly collaborative robot.
YuMi was a game-changer and heralded a new era where people and robots safely and productively work side-by-side, without barriers.
Collaborative robots are adept at adding flexibility to assembly processes that need to make small lots of highly individualized products, in short cycles.
By combining people’s unique ability to adapt to change with robot’s tireless endurance for precise, repetitive tasks, it is possible to automate the assembly of many types of products on the same line.
