PMA - The Workforce with a Difference: Meet PMA's Latest Employee

Automation and Robotics - YuMi Robot - Cable Protection Solutions

ABB PMA IRB2600 robot

As part of the ABB family, we’re well-known, not only for our outstanding products available to the rail industry, but also our innovative and ground-breaking contributions to automation and robotics; associated with some of the world’s most high profile projects of the moment in this forward-thinking field.

It should come as no surprise then that, just weeks after ABB proudly won the IERA Award at Automatica2016 for the revolutionary YuMi robot, we’ve taken the decision to introduce the IRB2600 robot to our Research & Development (R&D) team.

IRB2600 – for continual research & development
Deemed our newest ‘employee’, this medium size 6-axis robot with a load capability of 20kgs and a maximum stretch of 1.65m, will be participating in a wide range of testing, validation, and verification applications, helping R&D staff to carry out life cycle tests, and dynamic tests involving tension, torsion and abrasion.

For reliable, trusted products and applications
Also used to support the R&D team in the development of robotics conduits and accessories, the introduction of IRB2600 to the floor ensures we can continue to practically test, develop, and demonstrate the strength of our products – remaining the global leading brand in cable protection solutions, and providing our customers with practical, reliable applications they can trust.

Currently being installed, we hope that our wonderful new ‘employee’, IRB2600, will be ready to start its first shifts in the coming weeks; supporting us in our tireless efforts to remain at the forefront of quality and reliability in this area.
