Following on from the success of ABB’s dual-arm YuMi, introduced in 2015, the world's first truly collaborative robot, ABB has developed a single-arm YuMi to expand its collaborative portfolio.
Versatile installation for convenient deployment
Single-arm YuMi is compact and lightweight (9.5kg) and supports mounting in any direction including ceiling, table, and wall mounting for rapid and flexible installation to fit into existing production lines. The ultra-light magnesium arm rotates on seven axes to mimic human-like movements with greater agility than 6-axis robots. The robot was specifically designed to meet the flexible production needs required by small parts assembly processes including consumer electronics, consumer goods, and small and medium enterprises.
Easy-to-use lead-through programming
Single-arm YuMi also features the same intuitive, easy-to-use lead through programming as dual-arm YuMi collaborative robot, meaning workers can teach the robot motions and positions easily and quickly, greatly simplifying robot programming. Combining this simplicity with the robot’s deployment flexibility, it will help manufacturers in many industries to offset shortages of skilled workers and help reduce entry barriers for new potential robot users, particularly small and medium enterprises.
Extremely versatile, the YuMi family of robots can be combined in numerous configurations. For example, a single-arm YuMi can be used to feed parts to dual-arm YuMi to increase flexibility, or added as an extra arm for more complex assembly tasks requiring more than 2 robot arms.
The robot powered by OmniCore controller is now available for order.
