ABB introduces design and color change for new era of robotics
ABB introduced the world’s first all-electric, microprocessor-controlled industrial robot. As ABB’s product offer has evolved and changed dramatically, one thing has remained constant: the color of the robots.
"A new look that is both more modern and better suits the era of collaboration"
At the same time, ABB has changed as a company. We are realizing our unique ability to deliver complete global solutions, and the ABB brand is stronger around the world. A new design language and color ensures our robots are easily identifiable as ABB products.
“Today we are launching a new look that is both more modern and better suits the era of collaboration,”
The best example of this design change can be seen in our recently introduced IRB 6700 robot (pictured above). From the curves on its arm to the new colors, the design language that all of our robots will adopt is evident. Starting in May of 2014 all of ABB’s standard robots will ship in the new Graphite White color and every newly designed robot we release from now on will also be based on the dynamic design philosophy. Traditional orange will remain a free option through the end of 2014, but customers will still be able to order our robots in any color they want.
ABB Robotics is proud to have been such a strong influencer of the last 40 years of robotics development. With this fresh, new design language we are preparing ourselves for another 40 years of incredible innovation and strong collaboration with our partners around the world.
