Shanghai Zhangjiang Robot Industry Alliance was established, and ABB Robotics became one of the founding members of the alliance-ABB Robotics Empowerment Center was officially unveiled at the opening ceremony of the 2nd Zhangjiang Robotics Ecological Summit ABB Robotics Empowerment Center focuses on the medical field and will join hands with local companies and third parties institutions, providing more comprehensive solutions for pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies
In order to seize the high-speed development opportunities in various segments of robotics, build a communication platform in the robotics field, and accelerate scientific and technological innovation in the robotics industry, the Industrial Development Promotion Center of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, together with Shanghai Pudong New Area Science and Technology and Economic Committee and Shanghai Zhangjiang (Group) Co., Ltd. The company co-hosted the 2023 Robot Technology Innovation Forum and the 2nd Zhangjiang Robot Ecology Summit in the Zhangjiang Science Hall on March 17. As invited companies, Liang Rui, President of ABB Robotics China, Wang Tong, head of ABB Robotics China's consumer goods and service robot business unit, and Zhang Jiafan, head of ABB Robotics China Research Center, attended the summit.
At the main opening ceremony of the summit, the Shanghai Zhangjiang Robotics Industry Alliance was announced to be established. As a member of the alliance, ABB Robotics will continue to help the robot industry in Zhangjiang to realize the integration of innovation chains such as production, learning, research, and use, and promote technological exchanges. At the same time, the unveiling ceremony of the ABB Robotic Empowerment Center was also held at the opening ceremony. Xia Yuzhong, Deputy Director of Pudong New Area Science and Technology Commission, and Liang Rui, President of ABB Robotics China, jointly unveiled the plaque for the Empowerment Center. ABB Robotic Empowerment Center is located in Zhangjiang Robot Valley and is expected to be put into operation in the second half of 2023
This empowerment center focusing on the medical industry will make full use of ABB's leading robot automation technology and cutting-edge artificial intelligence research results, and cooperate with more local companies and third-party institutions through efficient, sustainable and cooperative innovation methods to provide medical services for the medical industry. and biopharmaceutical companies to provide more comprehensive solutions to continuously empower corporate innovation. This also means that ABB robots will go out of the factory, actively respond to the rapidly changing market demand, deploy in the medical and health field, constantly break through the technological boundaries, and bring infinite possibilities.
On the afternoon of the same day, Wang Hong, deputy director of the Equipment Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, and his party visited the newly put into operation of ABB's robot super factory. This super industrial wide featuring innovation, automation, and flexibility has achieved more flexible, faster, and more efficient production and internal logistics through flexible automation. The new Open Innovation Center will also help ABB Robotics collaborate with partners and customers to develop innovative solutions, unlocking more possibilities for flexible automation in new fields such as logistics, healthcare, food and beverages
In addition, Dr. Zhang Jiafan, head of ABB Robotics China Research Center, delivered a keynote speech at the main forum of the summit, focusing on the theme of "Industrial Robots Moving towards the Intelligent Era", showing the latest developments and practical results of ABB robotics technology empowered by artificial intelligence. The applications and advantages show the new possibilities opened up by virtual technology for automation applications, and propose a new direction for the future development of intelligent industrial robots.
