ABB Automation Technology (Robotics)
ABB Automation Technology (Robotics) is the leading supplier of industrial robots, having installed over a 100,000 units worldwide. The combination of unique patented software, precision hardware and total commitment results in faster work cycle times, lower energy consumption and a MTBF (Mean Time Between Failure) design specification of 50,000 hours. Since most robot systems contain at least 6 servo axes, ABB is one of the worlds largest purchasers of servo drives. For ABB, POWERLINK’s major benefit is that it is an open standard for communicating with internal robot axes and external process axes in a cost-efficient and reliable way, which enhances ease of use and flexibility for ABB’s end customers.
