Our North American Headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan, hosted over 1,000 attendees during Technology Days 2014, an event that rivals major trade shows in terms of access to robotic technology and demonstrations.
The event took place on March 13 and 14, and featured more than 80 product demonstrations and technical seminars covering both general and application specific information designed to benefit both those considering an initial foray into robotic automation, and those looking to upgrade or expand their existing robotic lines.
Prominent features on the demo floor included the new IRB 6700, the next generation of large robots, designed for spot welding, material handling and machine tending; several sophisticated machine tending cells; and the full IRB 360 FlexPicker line, the leading Delta robot in the industry recently expanded with several higher payload models. ABB’s new Integrated Vision, Integrated Force Control and advanced RobotStudio programming systems were also on display.
The ABB Dual Arm Concept Robot (DACR) made its first appearance in North America, providing a look at the current status of a robot prototype designed to meet the challenging demands of the consumer electronics industry and other smaller parts assembly applications.
