ABB and Volvo Cars are teaming up to enhance their existing partnership, with ABB supplying over 1,300 robots and packages for building the next generation of electric vehicles.

This collaboration aims to help Volvo Cars meet its sustainability goals as the automotive industry shifts towards electric vehicles.

Marc Segura, ABB Robotics President, stressed the changing landscape in the automotive sector due to increased demand for electric vehicles and a focus on sustainability.

The partnership with Volvo Cars reflects a joint commitment to more sustainable manufacturing. ABB's advanced large robot family and OmniCoreTM controllers are expected to contribute to energy savings of up to 20 per cent across global manufacturing sites.

The collaboration covers various production tasks, including spot welding, riveting, dispensing, flow drilling, and ultrasonic weld inspection. These ready-to-use packages, combining hardware, software, and services, will be used at Volvo Cars' facilities in Sweden and China.

ABB's OmniCore robot controllers are designed to improve energy efficiency through advanced power electronics and regenerative braking within the robot, potentially resulting in significant energy savings.

ABB will use its RobotStudio® planning and programming software platform to ensure smooth integration and minimal disruption during deployment. The aim is to create adaptable automation solutions that can be easily replicated. The deployment process is expected to start in early 2024.

This collaboration builds on the longstanding partnership between Volvo Cars and ABB, focused on making car production more efficient and advancing industrial robot capabilities.
