ABB, one of the worlds largest electrical and automation companies has revealed its latest offering in robotics: YuMi.
According to ABB, YuMi is capapble of working with humans without barriers between them as is so often necessary with robot solutions. YuMi is also a dual-arm robot with the ability to ‘feel’ and ‘see’ using feedback sensors similar in function to those found in other robot solutions.
The YuMi robot is capable of handling very delicate and precise parts such as those found in current generation mobile phones and other small electronic and mechanical devices.
The commercial launch of YuMi will take place in April, 2015 in Germany at the worlds largest industrial technology expo.
