YuMi: The world’s first truly collaborative dual-arm robot

In 1974, ABB introduced the IRB 6 robot and kick-started the modern industrial robotics era. It was the first commercially available industrial robot to feature all-electric drive and microprocessor control. Since then, the form factor and functionality of industrial robots has remained largely the same.

We give you YuMi

The world’s first truly collaborative dual-arm robot

Before YuMi

Industrial robots were largely confined to cages

Humans and robots worked separately

After YuMi

Robots and humans can work side by side YuMi literally removes the barriers to collaboration by making it possible to operate without safety fencing and cages

Inherently safe System of automated small parts assembly

* Space-saving

No need to alter existing working environments

With a human-sized profile, YuMi was intentionally designed to resemble its human counterpart.

 It has a compact body and requires no more space than a standard workstation for humans.

* Human-robot Collaboration

Automating the processes that still require humans to be part of the solution and can’t be fully automated with existing technology. A complete system of collaboration makes for simpler programming, meaning factories don’t need as many engineering resources.

* More efficient and better

Automation with minimized safety risks and in compact spaces makes for easier factory installation utilizing existing floor space. Even partial automation of assembly lines results in much faster production.

* Programming so easy anyone could do it

With YuMi’s Lead-Through Programming technology, the complexity of traditional programming becomes a thing of the past. In fact, programming is so easy that anyone can do it intuitively – without special training or programming skills.

* Higher quality less waste

When humans and robots work together, it often results in surpassing the precision and speed of human-only work, resulting in higher quality products and less waste.

* Elevating the nature of work

Robots do the dull, dirty and dangerous jobs, allowing people to do the jobs that are less physically demanding. As people increasingly seek more mentally rewarding jobs, collaborative robots simultaneously make workplaces more appealing and replace the manufacturing skills that are disappearing from the workforce.

Features

  • The fifth-generation, integrated IRC5 controller with True Move and Quick Move™ motion control technology commands accuracy, speed, cycle-time, programmability and synchronization with external devices.
  • I/O interfaces include Ethernet IP, Profibus, USB ports, DeviceNet™, communication port, emergency stop and air-to-hands. YuMi accepts a wide range of HMI devices including ABB’s teach pendant, industrial displays, commercially available tablets and smartphones.
  • The 100-240 volt power supply plugs into any power socket for worldwide versatility.

Benefits

  • Can operates equally effectively side-by-side or face-to-face with human coworkers.
  • Servo grippers (the “hands”) include options for built-in cameras
  • Real-time algorithms set a collision-free path for each arm customized for the required task.
  • Padding protects coworkers in high-risk areas by absorbing force if contact is made.
  • If the robot encounters an unexpected object – even a slight contact with a coworker – it can pause its motion within milliseconds, and the motion can be restarted again as easily as pressing play on a remote control.
  • Pinch points have been eliminated or minimized to an acceptable level between moving parts, and between moving and stationary parts.
