Our offering

End of line

After the stamping process the parts are transferred to an end of line conveyor enabling the visual or automatic part inspection. Finally the part is racked into specific containers. The robotic ABB Racking solutions integrate the end of line processes to drive quality and ergonomics to the highest industry standards.

Front of line

The front of line is the key for a fast, flexible and reliable line. It includes the blank de-stacking, the centering and the oiling and washing operations. ABB offers diverse FOL solutions depending on the production needs.

Hot stamping line

ABB state-of-the-art automation for hot stamping offers minimum furnace-to-press transfer times and thus optimum conditions for the stamping.

Interpress cells

The goal of the ABB press automation is obtaining the maximum line output by means of robotic solutions for fast, flexible, easy-to-use and reliable press-to-press part transfer. The ABB offering include 6-Axis, 7-Axis and Twin robots to adapt to our customer production needs and technical requirements.

StampPack: Press Cell automation

With a standardized interface, StampPack® creates an easy connection of the robot to one or more presses, of any type and size, including multiple step stamping. The result is a fully automated production cell, set up in record time and ready to start producing.

Tandem press lines

The ABB press lines are fast, flexible and easy-to-use. Our press lines integrate presses and robots into an ecosystem which optimizes the output, availability and reliability without compromising safety or quality. To fit our customer production needs and technical requirements our offering include 6-Axis, 7-Axis and TRX Lines to fit our customer needs.

Press Refurbishment and Motion

ABB offers a complete products and services portfolio for press refurbishment to improve productivity of presses and stay competitive at the actual market. Worldwide range of services to update existing equipment or manufacture new components to improve productivity, reliability and maintainability is included in our scope.

Servotechnology

DDC is a servo-drive concept that allows new and existing presses to take full advantage of servo technology with limited peak power.
