There are plenty of fancy robots that can help manufacturers become more efficient. Software plays a big part too. ABB’s PickMaster Twin is a high speed vision-guided random flow picking software that delivers 15% faster picking times.
As the company explains:
The new PickMaster Twin software is equipped with digital twin technology for the first time, to shorten commissioning times from days to hours and cut changeover periods from hours to minutes. Digital twin technology allows customers to test out robotic configurations on virtual production lines before physical lines are built. When using digital twin technology, the simulated twin can be directly connected to production operations, which allows the picking process to be optimized virtually at the same time as the process is being implemented.
