AbbYuMi Gripper

YuMi was first introduced in 2015, It is the world first cobot robot. A gripper is a device used to hold an object to be manipulated. The easiest way to understand gripper is to think of human hand. AbbYuMi gripper was indeed a game changer and has provided a new era where robots and human workers safely and productively work together without barriers. Advanced human-friendly dual arm robot with innovation functionality intended to reveal enormous universal extra automation potential in industry.  AbbYuMi gripper is intended for a new era of robotics, for instance in a small parts meeting, where robots and human being work alongside on the same job. YuMi gripper helps to remove barriers to collaboration by making cages and fencing barrier as a thing of past.

AbbYuMi gripper can work with a variety of HMI devices, including tablets and smartphones.  It’s hands or servo grippers, have the option of a built camera, the padding on the arm makes it soft to touch, and its 100-240 volt power supply plugs into any socket worldwide.
Collaborative robots are proficient at adding flexibility to assembly processes that need to make small lots of completely individualized products, in short cycles. By combining people’s unique ability to adapt to change with the robot’s tireless endurance for precise, repetitive tasks, it is possible to automate the assembly of many types of products on the same line.


ABB’s new YuMi collaborative robot is the start of a new era in robotics. The name actually is, YuMi, which stands for You and Me.  YuMi is the first collaborative dual arm robot, designed to work side by side and integrated with humans. This dual arm ABB robot is perfect for small parts assembly and is safe and very accurate. With a simple human touch, the robotics programmed to stop what it is doing in less than a second.  No fencing, no need for light curtains, no need for safety systems.  That is mostly because all of YuMi’s safety devices are built into the robot. This robot is the future of robotics and comes with the advanced ABB IRC5 controller, it comes with the True Move and Quick Move technology and I/O interfaces include Ethernet IP, Profibus, USB ports, Device Net, communication port, emergency stop and air-to-hands.

Abb Yumi gripper assist dutch industry to stay competitive providing the benefits of industrial automation but with greater flexibility, affordability and easy to use. AbbYuMi gripper is available in the UK market for industrial or home use.
