ABB Single-arm YuMi
A collaboration of our new Single-arm #YuMirobot with #IRB1200 shows how flexible and safe to create a various combination of applications with ease. Take a closer look at our booth #334 in #automatica. https://t.co/c0bN530pZv pic.twitter.com/el0ovysVpg

ABB’s IRB 14050 single-arm YuMi is challenging head on the Meca500. ABB essentially cut in half its popular dual-arm YuMi, reducing its footprint, to create the new YuMi. The 7-axis IRB 14050 features the same 0.5kg payload as the older YuMi, with a repeatability of 0.02mm and a maximum reach of 559mm. It also features the same lead through programming as dual-arm YuMi for streamlined set-up.
ABB said the single-arm YuMi increases flexibility to help meet high-mix, low-volume production in short cycles. ABB envisions applications that combine the YuMi family of robots. For example, a single-arm YuMi can be used to feed parts to a dual-arm YuMi to speed up cycle time, or added as an extra arm to integrate a testing and inspection station into an electronics assembly application.
