ABB welding robots boost productivity for CIMC

08 September 2020

A complete automated welding solution utilizing ABB robots boosts production quality and creates a safer working environment for CIMC Containers. 

Automatic welding application using ABB’s Multi Move controller and ABB Ability Connected Services for optimized robotic operations.

CIMC entered into a strategic cooperation agreement with ABB for a completely automated welding solution that would not only increase production quality but also create a safer working environment for CIMC’s employees.

The automated welding solution adopts 65 ABB welding robots distributed across the base frame, front and back end and general assembly areas.

In automatic welding, the welded parts have consistent shapes and the seam width is stable, thanks to the excellent repeatability and motion control of ABB robots. Moreover, automatic welding reduces the occurrence of pores, making the welding seam of the container more aesthetic.

In addition to improving product quality, automatic welding also creates a better working environment for human workers as they no longer have to interact with gas flames, hot metal surfaces or be exposed to noxious fumes.
