ABB India Unveils New AI-Enabled Corporate And Business Office

ABB India recently announced that it has moved its corporate and business office to an integrated, sustainable, and digitalised facility within its own Peenya campus in Bangalore. The facility, named Disha, will house the corporate office, along with the offices of Electrification and Motion businesses alongside Process Automation business in the same campus. Located in one of the prime industrial areas of Bengaluru, the campus minimises carbon footprint by sourcing 90 percent electricity from renewable sources; it reduces 55 percent load on potable water with intelligent fixtures and with 98 percent of its waste recycled, almost reaches its target of sero waste to landfill. The 15 acres campus has a green cover of about 30 percent.

By upcycling and repurposing an existing building to convert it to Disha, the project has optimised resources and significantly reduced the environmental impact which a greenfield project of this scale would have generated. Showcasing ABB’s expertise in digital energy management solutions, more than 5000 ABB products are being used in Disha. It is the first ABB facility to deploy ABB’s Aspect IBMS (Integrated Building Management Solutions) technology. This is a unified platform to monitor and control from any location or city, the multiple points enabled with hundred sensors from lighting to HVAC solutions, room controls, safety, and security systems with special CO2 monitors for ambient air quality monitoring in the rooms. This is combined with a cloud-based SaaS solution – ABB Ability™ Building Ecosystem with Active Energy and Asset Manager. It is complemented by electricals from the ABB portfolio and an AI-enabled vehicle management and parking system. These nearly 500 connected products with embedded intelligence are designed to significantly reduce overall energy consumption and carbon footprint while saving energy costs by up to 30 percent.

“At ABB, we have always taken a sustainable and future-ready approach to business. Sustainability is a key part of our company’s purpose and of the value that we create for our customers, employees, and all our stakeholders. The move to the existing Peenya campus brings our people together under the same roof enhancing collaboration and agility. It is also a step towards minimising our carbon footprint, repurposing existing resources while offering a smarter workplace focused on employee wellbeing and improving productivity. ABB is developing all the companies’ manufacturing campuses at Nashik, Baroda, Faridabad, and Bangalore & multiple office campuses to common ESG standards in India. The vision was to create a model, flexible industrial infrastructure project with an enabling eco-system by working with all our partners and stakeholders,” said Sanjeev Sharma, Country Head and Managing Director, ABB India.

“In India, almost 30 percent of the energy is consumed by buildings and we believe Disha will create a legacy, a demonstration of what can be done to make buildings more efficient through the deployment of integrated digital building automation & electrical technology,” he added.

This project also included the enhancement of local infrastructure through a 360-degree development of the associated road related infrastructure and laying of cable trenches for future expansion of IT infrastructure of the companies co-located in this area. As part of the sustainable infrastructure development theme, a special recycled plastic mix of 6,000 kgs, equivalent to 1,50,000 (1.5 lac) one-liter bottles is used for the footpath construction.

ABB India’s Peenya campus has been in operation for more than 30 years and has been the bedrock of multiple milestones for the company. The campus hosts innovation centers of multiple products, global factories, precision product manufacturing with smart shopfloors, and remote monitoring centers for connected devices across Indian industries.

Putting A Plant On Autopilot

Putting A Plant On Autopilot

Automating certain processes not only ensures consistency of control, but also enables processes to operate smoothly in the absence of human operators, right around the clock. Find out more about Advanced Process Control (APC) in this article by ABB.

Today’s steel manufacturer is facing a number of challenges that range from safeguarding competitiveness to meeting changing customer needs with flexibility and speed. These require steel plants to maximise operating performance, while maintaining quality and yield, and controlling maintenance and inventory levels. 

In addition, companies need to find ways of retaining expert human knowledge accumulated over many years, after the experts themselves come towards the end of their working lives. In this regard, automating certain processes not only ensures consistency of control, but also enables processes to operate smoothly in the absence of human operators, right around the clock. 

Advanced Process Control (APC) using model predictions is one of the ways to run the processes on autopilot mode with minimum intervention from operators. 

Advanced Process Control

The concept of APC, and the ways in which it can be tailored to industry specific processes – given the right level of knowledge and expertise – offers a great potential for a metals industry seeking solutions that provide tangible and guaranteed returns. Today, APC is fundamental to the success of certain processes within many industries and is increasingly being applied today in steel production. 

Although it is technically advanced and not without complexities, APC can be considered simply as the autopilot for driving the plant to an optimum state around the clock. Using a plant model and objective functions, it can predict system behaviour some steps into the future – put simply, it produces a digital twin of any process and predicts the way it will act. 

Based on this predictive functionality, APC is able to automatically adjust operational set points to ensure peak plant performance and productivity. Its ability to make frequent, small changes, avoids large corrections or over-compensation for changes in conditions, creating a stable process, before steadily and smoothly moving to and maintaining an optimal operating state. In this way, APC is able to enhance quality, raise throughput and reduce energy use.

APC is already used in a variety of industries to facilitate operational change, offering significant ROI. In the cement industry, for example, APC has been used to optimise both horizontal and vertical grinding circuits to improve productivity. Given the similar process and equipment used across both the cement and metals industries, such examples offer practical insight into the sort of savings APC could offer to steel producers in their own grinding processes.

Achieving Consistent Quality

Achieving Consistent Quality

Find out how gear manufacturer Katsa Oy was able to achieve consistent quality in its finishing and deburring processes. Article by Renishaw.

The Challenge

Gear and gearbox manufacturer Katsa Oy designs and manufactures power transmission components and supplies special gear units tailored to customer’s demands. Deburring gears manually using grinding wheels can be a variable process, resulting in inconsistent finishes across parts in the same batch. Machine-shop operators have to be very skilled to achieve a quality and consistent finish, but even then, variability from one operator to another is unavoidable.

In addition, manual deburring is a dirty and hazardous job, which few operators at Katsa wanted to undertake. As a consequence, finishing and deburring operations became a bottleneck in the company’s manufacturing process, with a knock-on effect often causing significant delays.

Solution

Thinking of automating the gear deburring process, Katsa approached Flexmill Oy, the global renowned for design and build robotised cell, to build an automated cell to finish-machine and deburr gears ranging in size from 50 mm to 1.5 m diameter.  

The bespoke, turnkey cell incorporates an ABB robot, a Renishaw RMP60 probe and a twin pallet system which allows one gear to be machined whilst another is loaded.

To ensure all excess material on the machined gears is removed automatically by the deburring process, the Flexmill software requires the exact geometrical parameters of the gears and the gear teeth. Some of these parameters are known and available for each of the many different gears made by Katsa.

Those parameters that are not known can be measured using the Renishaw RMP60 probe with radio signal transmission. The ABB robot uses the probe for locating parts during set-up, with the resulting positional data used by the control software to generate a complete, automated deburring cycle—with no manual programming required. Once machined, the RMP60 probe is used post-process to confirm finished dimensions.

Flexmill Cell Featuring ABB Robot and Renishaw RMP60 Probe

The RMP60’s proven kinematic resistive probe mechanism, combined with its unique frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) radio transmission ideally suited to this application. This means that communication between the probe and its receiver remains stable even if, for example, ‘line-of-sight’ is lost or if another radio source enters the environment.

Operating in the 2.4 GHz waveband, the RMP60 machine probe is compliant with radio regulations in all major industrial markets. It offers a variety of activation options, an adjustable trigger force and measurement repeatability of ±1 μm 2σ.

Automation And Digitalisation Pave The Way Forward For Smart Metal Industries

Automation And Digitalisation Pave The Way Forward For Smart Metal Industries

High precision robots working in a digitally driven factories are creating new avenues of growth for the sector. Article by Jorge Isla, ABB.

The standardised design of the FlexArc gives manufacturers the flexibility to shift the welding robot systems between cells without having to make major modifications.

As one of the most versatile and yet demanding parts of manufacturing, metal working has been preordained to undergo every technological advancement that transpires in the industrial world. The needs of the metalworking sector are as diverse as the end customers they serve. Be it a small job shop, a large automotive supplier or a foundry, metal working is a process that requires flawless execution even in harsh working conditions.

Today, trends such as the growing demand for tailor-made goods, continued globalisation that has led to a crowded market, and the everlasting pursuit for quality and efficiency, pose significant challenges to the current structure of the metalworking industry. Organisations that want to stay ahead of the curve have to pull all stops to ensure that their equipment and practices are capable enough to handle the many challenges that they encounter in this diverse industry. Automation in the form of robots and machining tools, when enhanced by digitalisation, offer the best way to improve productivity while maintaining a high level of flexibility to meet the needs of end customers. 

A significant factor that contests the efficacy of a factory that we are seeing today is ability to manufacture a wide variety of parts while maintaining the capacity to constantly introduce new variants to the process without having to disrupt the normal workflow in the factory. Achieving this requires a two-pronged approach to enhance both the hardware and the overall production process.

Forging flexibility with robots

Collaborative robots are adept at adding flexibility to assembly processes that need to make small lots of highly individualized products, in short cycles.

A sure shot way to increase the flexibility of the metal working process is through robotic automation. The range of robots for metal working have not been as comprehensive as they are today. From simple material handling tasks such as shifting parts to and from the conveyor system to sophisticated robotic welding cells that perform multiple complex tasks, robots have proven to significantly improve uptime, productivity and consistency. 

In the era of mass customisation, hard automation processes that execute only specific tasks offer very little in the way of agility to perform quick changeovers. On the other hand, flexible automation, typically in the form of a robot with “arms” that are capable of six axis movements with interchangeable grippers can perform a variety of tasks and are exceptional at handling large product mixes.  

The IRB 14000 single and dual- arm robots from ABB are highly collaborative machines and one of the latest technologies in flexible automation. Popularly called YuMi, these robots come with the added benefits of being able to safely and seamlessly work closely with human operators and enable greater space savings as they do not require large fences or cabins. The small size, but highly dexterous robot is well-suited for picking and placing tasks as it does for a leading French automotive interior parts supplier. The dual-armed YuMi robot is installed in the small space between two simultaneously running conveyor systems where its job is to fit plates on pump handles that are used to adjust the height of vehicle seats. The plug-and-produce concept of the YuMi allows it to work well in unstructured environments. 

Automation can also enhance the ability for manufacturers to perform tasks for various end customers using the same assets. Take for instance a Polish company that makes exhaust systems for the automotive industry. A significant variable in the company’s operations is that it does not have guaranteed quantity demands from end customers. To mitigate some of this uncertainty, the company installed a range of ABB’s FlexArcs at its factory in Poland. The FlexArc is a complete welding solution that features welding robots enabled with superior motion control software, positioners and other welding equipment, all built on a common platform. 

What makes the FlexArc ideal for the company is that one welding cell can be easily adapted for other products. Depending on the forecast by the end customer, the company can set up the welding process and use as many or as few FlexArcs that they would need. The flexibility of the FlexArc allows the company to use the same jig to make products for different customers with minimum changes to the design, which otherwise is an expensive and often lengthy process. Ultimately, along with increased productivity and superior weld quality that the welding cell offers, it also enables the company to quickly respond to the changing demands of its customers.
