ABB today announced that its YuMii® robot solution, the world’s first truly collaborative robot, was honored with a Golden Finger award as one of the best industrial robots of 2016 at the China International Robot Show (CIROS) in Shanghai, China. CIROS (ciros.com.cn) is organized by the China Machinery Industry Federation and the China Robot Industry Alliance, and is one of the three largest robot technology events in the world.

2016 was the first year for the Golden Finger awards, which were jointly setup with CIROS and China’s Machinery & Electronics Business newspaper as part of the beginning of the country’s 13th Five Year Plan and Made in China 2025 Strategy. The strategy aims to transform China into a global manufacturing leader; robots will play a key role in improving productivity and shifting the country’s manufacturing focus from being ‘big’ to being ‘strong.’

One out of every four robots sold today is sold in China, which is the world’s leading robotics growth market. According to the International Federation of Robotics, some 68,000 units were sold in China during 2015, which is a 17 percent increase over 2014.

In industries such as personal electronics, the need for more customized products and higher quality expectations are changing the nature of manufacturing. Production is shifting from mass producing the same product for a long time to producing small lots of more diverse products for a shorter business cycle. Robots offer the flexibility and agility to remain productive and improve quality while adapting to meet increasingly diverse consumer needs.

ABB’s YuMi robot solution was specifically designed to help consumer electronics meet these challenges by unlocking innovative new collaborative manufacturing solutions where people and robots safely work together on shared tasks. “There is an exceptional passion for innovation here in China. ABB is working closely with its customers to help transform their manufacturing and find new ways of unlocking the flexible, efficient ‘factory of the future, ’ today. Collaborative automation will certainly play a large part in this journey,” said Sami Atiya, President of ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion division. “It’s a great honor for ABB to receive this recognition here in China and among distinguished peers at of the world’s most important robot technology events.”

In April 2016, ABB’s YuMi robot solution was recognized for outstanding achievements in commercializing innovative robot technology with the prestigious Invention and Entrepreneurship Award (IERA) during the Automatica trade fair in Munich, Germany.

ABB (abb.com) is a leading global technology company in power and automation that enables utility, industry, and transport & infrastructure customers to improve their performance while lowering environmental impact. The ABB Group of companies operates in roughly 100 countries and employs about 135,000 people.
