In response to the postponement of the 2020 Processing and Packaging Machinery Association show, ABB has created a virtual exhibition stand demonstrating its latest products and solutions for processing and packaging applications. Visitors will experience a panoramic tour to discover the benefits robots can bring to many industries.

The ABB FlexPicker IRB360 is highlighted on the stand, demonstrating its fast picking capabilities in a compact footprint. Featuring easy to rinse-off surfaces and joints and designed for picking and packing applications with high payloads up to 8 kg, the FlexPicker offers fast, flexible and accurate performance in a range of food and beverage and pharmaceuticals applications.

With space at a premium in many factories, solutions that can offer high performance in the smallest possible footprint are ideal. ABB’s fastest and most compact robot to date, the IRB1100, provides increased productivity of 35% with up to 10% space savings, and outperforms other robots in its class in terms of payload and repeatability, even when working in confined locations.

Examples of ABB’s single and dual-arm YuMi seven-axis robots are also showcased. These machines incorporate extensive safety features including padded arms and collision detection that automatically stops the robot if it detects the presence of a human worker. Both robots can handle a range of precise and repetitive tasks involving components up to 0.5 kg and are part of a suite of collaborative automation solutions that help people and robots work more safely and closer together than ever before.

Visitors to the virtual stand will find a range of other interactive exhibits including display boards covering videos on elements such as the new RobotStudio AR viewer, downloadable information including ebooks and white papers and 360° rotating models of each robot for full view.
