YuMi® - Creating an automated future together.

You and me.

The new era of robotic co-workers is here. YuMi is the result of years of research and development, making collaboration between humans and robots a reality, but it is also much more.

ABB has developed a collaborative, dual arm, small parts assembly robot solution that includes flexible hands, parts feeding systems, camera-based part location and state-of-the-art robot control. YuMi is a vision of the future. YuMi will change the way we think about assembly automation. YuMi is “you and me”, working together to create endless possibilities. 


YuMi was officially introduced to the market at the Hannover Messe on Monday, April 13, 2015  For further information, and to register your interest in YuMi, please contact your local ABB Robotics office using the Contact Information section below.

    About YuMi®

    Human - robot collaboration

    Innovative human - friendly dual arm robot with breakthrough functionality designed to unlock vast global additional automation potential in industry. YuMi is designed for a new era of automation, for example in small parts assembly, where people and robots work hand-in-hand on the same tasks. Safety is built into the functionality of the robot itself. YuMi removes the barriers to collaboration by making fencing and cages a thing of the past.

    Dual arm robots

    ABB dual arm robots  have accurate vision, dexterous grippers, sensitive force control feedback, flexible software and built-in safety features that collectively allow for programming through teaching rather than coding. ​

    YuMi® in questions and answers


    What is so special about YuMi?

    YuMi is the world’ first truly collaborative robot, able to work side-by-side on the same tasks as humans while still ensuring the safety of those around it. Capable of handling anything from a watch to a tablet PC and with the level of accuracy that could thread a needle, YuMi will radically change the way we think about assembly automation.

    Why YuMi?

    YuMi is about “you” and “me” creating an automated future together.
    YuMi is “you” and “me”, working together to create endless possibilities. That’s YuMi.
    YuMi meets the demands of a consumer market that is driving a need for greater flexibility in automated manufacturing head-on. For manufacturers, the market has changed the rules in ways that can be addressed effectively only by automation. The “new norm” of Small Parts Assembly is higher product volumes, shorter product lifecycles, shorter lead times and a growing trend to customize goods – particularly electronics – close to final markets.

    Are you introducing this product today?

    Yes. Today we are unveiling YuMi to the world.
    YuMi is a groundbreaking solution for human-robot collaboration in the Small Parts Assembly environment. YuMi is “you and me” – creating an automated future together.

    Which tasks has this robot been designed to carry out?

    YuMi is a collaborative, dual-arm Small Parts Assembly robot that includes flexible hands, parts feeding systems, camera-based part location and state-of-the-art robot control. It can collaborate, side-by-side, with humans in a normal manufacturing environment enabling companies to get the best out of both humans and robots, together. One of YuMi’s unique features is its “inherently safe” design, allowing it to work alongside humans while reducing risks to acceptable safety levels. 

    How does YuMi differ from the competition?

    YuMi is inherently safe by design. It has no barriers, no cages, no zones, YuMi is the first truly collaborative robot solution.

    Which benefits do dual-arms bring compared to a traditional robot arm?

    It is able to perform the motions required in Small Parts Assembly within a very small space while maintaining a human-like reach. This is critical to minimizing the footprint on the factory floor and also makes it possible to install YuMi into the work stations currently used only by humans.
