March 14th, 2013, Published in Articles: Vector

ABB recently received an order for 2400 robots by BMW Group. Over the next three years the robots will be installed at factories in Regensburg and Leipzig, Germany, as well as in Tiexi, China. These robots will mainly be used for material handling tasks, as well as gluing and spot welding processes. This is not the first such order BMW has made with ABB, and is evidence of a strongly renewed relationship between the two companies. ABB robots enable customers to implement efficient manufacturing systems that sustainably produce high-quality products. The company’s range of products and solutions for lean manufacturing cover the range from body-in-white to the final assembly of complete car bodies. They improve competitiveness and at the same time, optimally comply with customer specifications. ABB has installed more than 200 000 robots worldwide.
