How it works


Wizard easy programming - An easy and intuitive way to program single-arm YuMi®
The use of single-arm YuMi robot now becomes even simpler! ABB is introducing Wizard easy programming – an easy graphical programming interface for your robot. Only a few minutes after the installation you will be able to operate your YuMi - no specialized training or programming skills are required.

By providing essential functions such as ‘move’, ‘pick’, ‘place’, and ‘repeat’, Wizard easy programming covers a wide range of tasks. Users can simply drag and drop functions on the FlexPendant, see the results immediately, and adjust the robot’s actions within seconds.

The interface works perfectly in combination with sinlge-arm YuMi’s smooth lead through function, designed to teach YuMi processes by physically guiding it through them.

With Wizard easy programming you will also be able to develop highly effective robot programs.

ABB’s Wizard easy programming is available for free. It is preloaded on the FlexPendant of every new single-arm YuMi. Expansions to other robots will follow in the future. Wizard easy programming can also be downloaded as an add on in RobotStudio.

Until the end of 2020, ABB has made key software services available free of charge to its customers, including RobotStudio.
