Robotics push in rail industry

21 May 2009

ABB is targeting the rail industry in the latest part of its drive to educate UK manufacturers in the benefits of robotics. The ‘Robots in Rail’ manufacturing technology day will be held June 4, 2009 in Milton Keynes, UK and acts as a platform for ABB to present its robotic products, systems and services for rail material handling, welding and inspection.

The company aims to demonstrate the rapid payback available on robotic investments while addressing misconceptions that may be preventing many manufacturers from realising the benefits of robots.

Workshops and demonstrations cover a range of rail industry applications and provide an opportunity to learn the basics of robot control with ‘hands on’ training.

Attendees will also gain an insight into ABB’s 3D-robotics simulation suite for offline programming and control and the recently launched Remote Service Technology. ABB’s Remote Service Technology uses GPRS communications to enable both the customer and ABB to monitor a robot’s health and record key performance data whilst offline or working in a production environment.
