ABB Robotics will be holding an open week between the 11th and 16th May 2015 demonstrating the latest developments in robotic automation for welding and cutting manufacturing processes.
Taking place at ABBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Milton Keynes site, the event is free to attend and is open to anyone interested in finding out more about the benefits of using robots in manufacturing processes.
The week will be packed with a variety of activities, such as hands-on workshops, innovation seminars and demonstrations of the latest advances in robotic technology from ABBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s portfolio delivering modular products, function packages and standardised cells for various metal fabrication applications.
A key attraction will be ABBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new FlexArc suite. Featuring an ABB robot together with the same controller and software technology that would be found in a real-life application, the suite enables ABBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s customers to trial solutions and to gain hands-on training experience of using a robot to carry out different welding techniques and configurations.
Recognising that skills and support rank high amongst many companiesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ concerns about using a robot, the week will include an extensive focus on ABBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s customer service and support capabilities. Visitors will be able to find out more about services such as 24/7 support, ABBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s extensive service engineer coverage in the UK & Ireland, 24 hour turnaround on spare parts and the 152 check on robot refurbishment services. Also visible will be the remote service offering, whereby customers can have their robots remotely monitored by ABB, with an engineer being dispatched at the first sign of any problems. ABB specialists will be on hand too, to answer any questions about any aspect of robotic automation.
Another attraction will be the chance to get first-hand experience of programming a real live robot in ABBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s training centre. Delegates will have the chance to try out both ABBÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s FlexPendant handheld controller, and its RobotStudio offline programming software, which can be used to set up and trial everything from a standalone robot through to a complete cell in a virtual environment.
With ABB keen to encourage the next generation of engineers, the week will also feature a special day dedicated to education. Aimed at educational establishments, students, graduates and apprentices, the day will include a focus on both current and future robot technologies and will explain how the abilities of both people and robots can be best be combined to open up new possibilities in manufacturing.
