ABB will show visitors at MACH 2018 (Birmingham NEC, 9th to 13th of April) the latest advances in robotic automation that will help manufacturers find new ways to transform their productivity and efficiency. Exhibiting at Stand H19-400, ABB will feature new machine tending robots, demonstrations of robotic inspection and welding systems, as well as collaborative software and technology that enables robots and people to work side by side.
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, said 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.
In addition, ABB will be satisfying the growing number of students and budding engineers visiting MACH by participating in the exhibitionâs educational stand at H17-367. Young visitors will be able to try out a virtual reality demonstration built around RobotStudio, ABBâs 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 utilize them before they enter the workplace, said 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.
