India has opened a new robotics facility in Bengaluru in the state of Karnataka
in South India to cater to several industries including automotive. ABB is one
the leading suppliers of robot, robot systems and machine & factory
automation solutions, having shipped over 400,000 robot solutions across the
new ABB Robotics solutions delivery facility will enable Indian customers to
reap the benefits of Industry 4.0 including cutting-edge robotics and
digitalisation technologies. Spread over 3,600 sq.m at the ABB Nelamangala
factory premises in Bengaluru, the new facility will enable ABB India to
deliver robotic applications and digital solutions for a variety of Indian
industries, including automotive, food & beverage, electronics and other
facility houses a state-of-the-art shop floor that can run proof of concepts
and factory acceptance tests for 1000 ABB robots every year, which doubles the
company’s capacity. This enables rapid innovation, adaption, optimisation and
agile delivery of made-to-order robotics applications for Indian customers.
facility includes a demonstration center where the latest technologies in
robotic welding, gluing and material handling will be showcased and can be used
to carry out joint prove-out sessions with customers. ABB will also integrate
an ABB Ability Connected Services team that can remotely monitor an installed
base of ABB robots to conduct predictive maintenance and high uptime.
new Customer Experience Centre is being set up for customers to learn about the
latest in robotics technology and applications, including ABB’s dedicated robot
simulation and programming software, Robot Studio. Additionally, the facility
will host a paint lab where customers can run simulations of a broad range of
industrial painting applications.
as a complete digital ecosystem, ABB’s factory of the future concept will cater
to the growing demand of collaborative automation solutions, by enabling
innovation of new robot applications tailor made to the Indian market.
new facility harnesses the powers of ABB’s deep global expertise and knowledge
of the Indian industrial landscape to support our customer base,” said Sanjeev
Sharma, Managing Director of ABB India. “Even with increased demand for
automation, the penetration of robotics, especially in small and medium
enterprises is still low in India compared to the global average. With the help
of the new and improved robotics facility, we will be able to share our
knowledge and encourage Indian manufacturers to embrace our game changing
technologies and become best-in-class manufacturers for local and global
markets,” he added.
