Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES INTERNATIONAL -

ABB will de­liver over 250 ro­bots to Val­met Au­to­mo­tive for use at its Mercedes-Benz GLC SUV body shop in Uusikaupunki, Fin­land. Pro­duc­tion of the GLC sport util­ity ve­hi­cle will be­gin in early 2017. ABB’s flex­i­ble and in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nolo­gies will help Val­met Au­to­mo­tive re­duce in­vest­ment costs, in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­spond quickly to mar­ket de­mands. This is the largest con­tract for in­dus­trial ro­bots ever signed in Fin­land. Val­met Au­to­mo­tive’s to­tal num­ber of ABB ro­bots will dou­ble to over 500.

Pekka Ti­iti­nen, pres­i­dent of ABB’s Dis­crete Au­toma­tion and Mo­tion divi­sion said, “ABB’s flex­i­ble and in­tel­li­gent man­u­fac­tur­ing tech­nolo­gies will help Val­met Au­to­mo­tive re­duce in­vest­ment costs, in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity and re­spond quickly to mar­ket de­mands.” The or­der in­cludes the IRB 6700 ro­bots line, in­tro­duced in 2013, which is more ro­bust and 15% more en­ergy ef­fi­cient than its pre­de­ces­sor.
