Australia welcomes YuMi the collaborative robot

ABB has announced that its YuMi collaborative robot is now available in Australia.

The robot has the ability to work side by side on the same tasks as humans while still ensuring the safety of those around it — thereby eliminating the need for protective barriers or safety zones. Its lightweight, rigid magnesium skeleton features a floating plastic casing wrapped in soft padding in order to absorb impacts.

Particularly suited to small parts assembly and pick-and-place applications within the electronics industry, YuMi’s ability to work safely alongside humans is expected to enable it to drive efficiencies across a wide variety of applications.

“We have received strong levels of interest in YuMi across a variety of industries, including the education sector. The first robot for Australian delivery was sold recently, even before it hit our shores,” said Peter Katsos, business unit manager, ABB Robotics.
