• The robotics facility is spread over 3,600 sq.m in Bengaluru
  • Support the digital transformation of manufacturing
  • Enable Indian customers to reap the benefits of Industry 4.0

ABB India has opened a new robotics facility in Bengaluru. It is spread over 3,600 sq.m at the ABB Nelamangala factory premises in Bengaluru. The aim of this facility is to deliver robotic applications and digital solutions for a variety of Indian industries. The industries included are automotive, food & beverage, electronics and other upcoming sectors.

According to the press release, the facility houses a state-of-the-art shop floor that can run proof of concepts. It can also run factory acceptance tests for 1000 ABB robots every year, which doubles the company’s capacity. This enables rapid innovation, adaption, optimisation and agile delivery of made-to-order robotics applications for Indian customers.

“The new facility harnesses the powers of ABB’s deep global expertise and knowledge of the Indian industrial landscape to support our customer base.”

Sanjeev Sharma, Managing Director of ABB India

A new Customer Experience Center will be set up for customers. Using this, customers can learn about the latest in robotics technology and applications, including ABB’s dedicated robot simulation and programming software, RobotStudio. Additionally, the facility will host a paint lab where customers can run simulations of a broad range of industrial painting applications.

“Even with increased demand for automation, the penetration of robotics, especially in small and medium enterprises is still low in India compared to the global average. With the help of the new and improved robotics facility, we will be able to share our knowledge and encourage Indian manufacturers to embrace our game changing technologies and become best-in-class manufacturers for local and global markets,” added Sharma.

Also, the facility includes a demonstration center where the latest technologies in robotic welding, gluing and material handling will be showcased. The customers can make use of this to carry out joint prove-out sessions in the facility.

An ABB AbilityTM Connected Services team will remotely monitor an installed base of ABB robots to conduct predictive maintenance and high uptime.

ABB’s factory of the future concept will cater to the growing demand of collaborative automation solutions. It will enable innovation of new robot applications tailor-made to the Indian market.

ABB Robotics aims to enable Indian customers to reap the benefits of Industry 4.0 including cutting-edge robotics and digitalization technologies. India can become a resilient high-tech manufacturing economy in the world using this facility.

Industry 4.0 is the digital transformation of manufacturing/production and related industries and value creation processes. It is the ongoing transformation of traditional manufacturing and industrial practices combined with the latest smart technology.

ABB is one the leading suppliers of robot, robot systems and machine & factory automation solutions. They have shipped over 400,000 robot solutions across the globe.
