With its seven degrees of freedom, the robot offers high flexibility and allows redundancy-related studies within the IMS. Additionally, the robot is mounted to a passive mobile platform to make it useful for lectures and public events.
The robot is equipped with the OmniCore controller, which helps with the handling of the increasing data transfer when using multiple sensors and within the framework of machine learning. The controller has ABB’s safety solution SafeMove2 built-in, to save floor space and facilitate collaborative applications. It can also be equipped with a wide range of additional features, such as fieldbus protocols, and vision solutions which is advantageous for some studies. In addition to the controller, the YuMi is equipped with a smart gripper with an integrated camera and vacuum to further expand its applications even more to include various Industry 4.0 topics.
On one hand, the robot allows lead-through programming using its large multi-touch FlexPendant, through which the users can program motions and positions easily and quickly. This greatly simplifies robot programming and makes it ideal for student applications or quick testing. On the other hand, the robot can be programmed with RAPID via RobotStudio, for more complex applications as well as for virtual commissioning or simulations.
