Safety first for the robot that does no harm
YUMI robot’s padded arms and programming to shut down on human contact makes him one of the industry’s first robots to work in safe collaboration with his colleagues. The Swiss-made robot arrived in the ABB plant in the Dubai Industrial Area yesterday and the company showcased how it is designed to lighten assembly workloads in manufacturing plants. YUMI is already used in factories in Europe and the Far East to assemble electrical and consumer products. The robot’s debut in Dubai was to show how robotics can be of benefit to an area not known for manufacturing.
