ABB's First Robotics Application Center in Asia

ABB Robotics , the Swedish leading supplier of industrial robots, has opened its first Asian Robotics Application Center (RAC) in Singapore. ABB sees a great potential for Singapore to take leadership in packaging and other robotics solutions in Southeast Asia, as we benefit from the presence of high-end manufacturing industries in Singapore, great local and regional companies that support the development of cost-effective systems, and a booming food & beverage industry in Southeast Asia, according to James Foo, ABB’s president and country manager in Singapore.
The robotics set-up in the RAC is a picking, packing, and palletizing line, which is an essential process for many growing industries like food & beverage, pharmaceutical production, semiconductor and photovoltaics. 
ABB has installed more than 175,000 robots worldwide.
